(This small write up by my great friend who has given up his entire life to Lord Krishna shocked me to tears. How many of us will think like my friend.)
There was a great king and he wanted to identify,
The best citizen in his country and give him or her a great award.
His ministers worked doubly hard , without any rest,
And brought the four great citizens , so that the king can identify the best.
The first among them was not only very rich but had spent,
Crores of money in charity and also fed millions of people,
The second was a great doctor who treated patients for charity,
And he had saved thousands of people from death and suffering.
The third was a great justice and all his judgements ,
Were greatly appreciated as several criminals were punished by him,
And the king was astounded to see the fourth well chosen great person,
For she was only a lady, who wore tattered cloths and no ornaments .
The king was surprised , Where is the very rich charitable man,
The doctor who saved thousands of lives and judge who prevented crimes,
And this very old and extremely poor lady and he stared angrily at his ministers,
And they saluted him and told, “She is the teacher of the other great three.”
The king stared at that poor lady in tatters and poverty ,
Once again and told her , “Mother , do you not recognize me ,
I too like these four greats was your student and you had told us ,
I may not become great but definitely you will, and mother.”You are greater than all of us.”
