Great people learn from their mistakes. If they commit any mistake they accept it without wasting a single second. Here we are sharing childhood story of former Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri which will inspire you to be honest in life.
An incident, which took place when he was six years old, seems to have left a deep mark on his mind. Once he went to an orchard with his friends. He was standing below while his friends climbed the trees. He plucked a flower from a bush.
The gardener came in the meantime and saw Lal Bahadur. The boys on the trees climbed down and ran away. The gardener caught Lal Bahadur. He beat him severely.
Lal Bahadur wept and said, “I am orphan. Do not beat me.”
The gardener smiled with pity and said, “Because you are an orphan, you must learn better behavior, my boy.”
The words of the gardener had a great effect on him. He swore to him, “I shall behave better in future. Because I am an orphan I must learn good behavior.”
Moral of the Story: If you commit a mistake, accept it then and there.
