    Wisdom is not an achievement but a realization.

    When we hear the word 'Wisdom', the first thought that comes to our mind is a person with a lot of knowledge, experience and one who has achieved great success in life but, that is not true. Even an uneducated man can have more wisdom than the most educated ones.

    We ourself run after material gains, success and money most of our life but with time we get to a realise that it was just a part of life and not exactly life. This realisation is wisdom.
    Even in present times there are many who after achieving great success renounce life as they realise that all achievements are temporary and futile and real wisdom of life is, life itself.

    Gautam Buddha as King Siddhartha had all the comforts and luxuries any human can have but still once he saw a dead man taken to cemetery for last rites, he had the realisation and went for true meaning of life. That realisation made him Gautam Buddha and not the material comforts he had.

    Same thing happened to King Ashoka who renounced material life on seeing millions of dead men in the battlefield. He also took a path of true wisdom that life is not about achieving but about realizing.

    If we as humans get this understanding that achieving and losing is just a part of life and not life then, we too will gain immense wisdom and that cannot be compensated with any amount of knowledge or riches.

    Wisdom is the balance between intelligence and emotion. Emotion communicates a new thought and intelligence can be achieved on that thinking, so it is necessary that the balance between the two is kept. If this balance is disturbed, its consequences become severe. Everything can be controlled with intelligence. The person who has wisdom also has all kinds of force and he overcomes all situations with ease. The power of the brain is also useless if one is unable to use it. At the same time, one must also observe from time to time whether we have done what is right and what we are doing or are doing it right. If any deficiency is found, then steps should be taken to remove it.

    I agree with the author that wisdom and education are not related. There are many educated fools. There many uneducated wise men. Wisdom is nothing but understanding the situation and behaving as deemed fit. You may be a PhD but if you don't understand the mentality of the other persons and situation properly, you can't make a wise decision. But an educated man also who is well aware of the situation and the persons can make a wise decision.
    Wisdom is the ability to think and act using your knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insights. A wise person will make a decision using his best knowledge without having any emotion. A decision we take may hurt somebody. But wisdom says that doesn't go by emotions. When we are not in our normal state of mind, we should not take any decision as we can't think properly. We should wait till we become normal and then decide on the best course of action.

    People always confuse the Wisdom with education and they get sidelined and not heard too. How you behave with the people who are highly educated, how you behave with the people who are high talented and scholars of their own streams, how you behave with those who are the real inventors and initiators of discussions and issues. Taking right decision at the right time is main catch of good people because they invoke their wisdom to decide what is right and what is wrong. And those who are wise, they do not talk much but watch those who make fools of themselves by taking wrong decisions.
