Motivational Story of Swami Vivekananda’s Childhood and His School – Be sharp and stay with the truth

One day while in school, Vivekananda was talking animatedly to his friends during a class recess. Meanwhile,  the teacher had entered the classroom and had begun to teach his  subject. But the students were too absorbed in Vivekananda’s story to pay  any attention to the lesson.

After some time had passed, the teacher  heard the whispering and understood what was going on! Visibly annoyed,  he now asked each student what he had been lecturing on.

None could  answer. But Vivekananda was remarkably talented; his mind could work  simultaneously on two planes. While he had engaged one part of his mind  in talking, he had kept the other half on the lesson. So when the  teacher asked him that question, he answered correctly.

Quite  nonplussed, the teacher inquired who had been talking so long. Everybody  pointed at Vivekananda, but the teacher refused to believe them. He  then asked all the students except Vivekananda to stand up on the bench.

Vivekananda also joined his friends and stood up. The teacher asked him to  sit down. But Vivekananda replied: ‘No sir, I must also stand up because it  was I who was talking to them.’
