Marvellous am I, for I know everything;

Is there anyone who is at my level?

I pity thee who think they are masters,

While I walk on the planet earth!

They ought to worship me,

For am I the god of knowledge!


Laughed he by thinking these.

Thou shalt not be blinded by arrogance!

Heard he the voice but saw no one.

Who is it? Expose yourself! Said he.

I am the wind, said the voice.

Oh the wind, what made thou talk?


Thy arrogance, responded the wind.

How am I arrogant? Inquired he.

Thou claim the most knowledgeable.

I might as well test thy knowledge!

You the wind who has no shape, test me!

Laughed he, you might as well try.


What dost thou see in front of thou?

Asked the wind, I see a tree responded he.

Tell me about it, inquired the wind.

It is a mango tree, which will bear fruits in summer.

What else dost thou see? Asked further the wind,

That is all what I see, responded he.


Laughed the wind hysterically,

Why do you laugh? asked the irritated man.

There are the insects taking bite at its trunk and leaves,

As the sunlight fell, the photosynthesis process is on,

The tree is producing chemicals to counter the insect,

In the meanwhile, the tree sends information to its neighbours,


The trees in the neighbourhood producing chemicals,

in preparation to counter the insects.

As I speak to thou, I carry on the pollen to the other trees!

Thou don’t see these yet claim knowledgeable.

Ask what I know? asked the man not giving up!

Laughed the wind, yet thou claim thou know everything?


Realising what the wind says, humbled the man.

Thou shall be humble, continued the wind,

For there are several angles to one point that thou see.

Thou may see a point up to 60 to 180 degrees,

Others may see a point from the other angle up to the same what you see,

But thou and they shall not hold same perception.


If thou think thou can learn to see a point 360 degrees,

And claim thou art knowledgeable!

Nay, say I for thou just have one angle version!

If thou think thou have mastered one point,

I would say thou to tilt thy head one degree,

Thou wilt get different aspect thus different perception.


Tilt thy head further and there are 360 degrees.

Lie down to the point and cover 360 degrees!

Dost thou imagine the innumerable angles to a point?

Wait, there is more, continued the wind,

Walk a bit towards the point and cover 360 degrees,

Walk a bit far from the point and cover 360 degrees,


Now tell me, dost thou knowledgeable?

The man humbled and bowed his head,

I shall not claim I know everything!

For what I know is a drop in a drop of an ocean,

I shall listen and read more and be humble,

For I never can learn or know everything, said he.

He who know everything shan’t be arrogant!

Continued the wind, thou will lose everything when thou know everything.
