"The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations." Anton Ego of Disney's Ratatouille mentioned that line in his review as a critic after dining at Gusteau's Restaurant. He depicted the worldly ignored fact in just one beautiful line; that new things are not welcomed in the hitherto society due to the foul and stinking presence of those obdurate people. Whatever the new visualisation the youth presumes to manufacture for the benefit of people, these lesser of the two evils clump together and oppose each beneficiary statement until they lose or the opposite loses. However when tables turn in the favour of the new, nothing can stop it from creation and then its expansion to all homes. A specific guidance becomes mandatory to provide the people for exploiting the new at their explicit levels. Nobody I guess, has reached success in the absence of a mentor or someone else as an authentic guide.
Kabir Das has devoted many couplets in the sanctified feet of gurus or mentors, teachers. His famous couplet relating to the same, that is "गुरु गोविंद दोनो खड़े, काके लागू पाए; बलिहारी गुरु आपनो, गोविंद डियो बताए" or "Mentor and God both are standing, whose feet to touch? O mentor you are greater! Only you taught me about God." The deeds and aura which a guru or mentor or teacher spreads among his disciples creates a sacred atmosphere around them in which the mentor and the disciples are in constant correspondence; making the concepts clear with utmost focus to the listeners without the breaking of the link of the speaker. The duty of a mentor is to preach to anybody who wishes to seek knowledge. In Hindu scriptures, a Brahman only preached other young Brahmans and Kshatriyas, ignoring the bottom varnas of the varna system of Hinduism which is not possible today and should not be even; the British were in a way helpful to establish schooling system of education.
My writing skills would not have developed and seen a worthy platform if it was not the benevolence of my respected and adorning three specific teachers, my God like parents, my crumbled grandparents who taught me value of everything, my assiduous brother, my one particular friend among all my other dear friends and the society in which I am blissful to live and also to my religion which made me what I am today.
An ample of credit goes to my mentors for lighting and engraving my capabilities which will remain as a debt until my demise. You cannot give your mentor that much as much as he has invested in you! He created you, made you out of nothing so there is no vague possibility of giving that much as compared to his preaching in the form of guru dakshina. We are all ought to repay what we have so perilously earned from our mentors; the knowledge, the importance, the respect, limit, value, determination, devotion, etiquette, skills and much to state in the form of service, our happiness, our success, living a simple life and spreading love and care to other people as well as animals.
Incomplete are our lives without a true mentor.
"A good book, a true friend, a fine mentor is all that you need for success."
