Learning from seniors - 2A business man approached once Mr.Kannadasan, a famous Tamil poet amidst his talking that to advise his son who is very adamant in studying Tamil Literature but he wanted him to become a lawyer. Though the businessman explained his son the benefits of studying law, his son was very much fond of studying Tamil literature. But the poet replied the friend,'Leave him in his own way. This is good according to him as per his inner sense. A sheep can eat only leaves, cow eats hay stock,oil cakes, Monkey eats fruits. But we cannot insist a monkey to eat oil cakes. If we insist so the reaction will vary. Similar to this let him study as he please and let him come up with brightness'.
Though this was happened many years back, the saying is applicable to our present parents also.
