3 Min Read

Once upon a time, in a quaint village nestled amidst lush green fields in Andhra Pradesh, lived two neighbors, Ramu and Ravi. Both were farmers, and their fields lay side by side. Ramu was known for his impatience, while Ravi was known for his unwavering patience.

One summer, the village faced an unexpected drought. The scorching sun parched the land, and the crops withered away. Ramu, being impatient by nature, grew anxious. He kept pacing in his courtyard, fretting over the dwindling prospects of his harvest.

On the other hand, Ravi remained calm and composed. Instead of despairing, he diligently tended to his fields every day, even though there was no sign of rain. He continued to plow the land, sow seeds, and water the parched soil.

Six long months passed, and finally, the heavens opened up, blessing the land with much-needed rain. The entire village rejoiced at the sight of the life-giving water. Ramu, filled with hope, rushed to his fields, expecting a bountiful harvest after the rain. But to his dismay, his fields were barren. The crops had failed due to neglect and impatience.

Meanwhile, Ravi’s fields were flourishing. The seeds he had sown during the drought had sprouted into healthy crops. The villagers marveled at Ravi’s abundant harvest, despite the adverse conditions.

Ramu, humbled by his neighbor’s success, approached Ravi and asked for the secret behind his thriving crops. Ravi smiled and replied, “Six months ago, when everyone lost hope, I remembered the proverb – ‘6 nelalu saavaasam chaestae vaaru veeru avuthaaru.’ Patience is the key to success. While you fretted and worried, I persevered. I patiently waited for the right time to reap what I had sown.”

From that day on, Ramu learned the value of patience. He realized that success doesn’t always come instantly; sometimes, it requires waiting and enduring through difficult times. And thus, both neighbors continued their journey, but with a newfound understanding of the virtue of patience and its rewards.
