JEALOUSY

NOTHING DESCRIBES THE PHENOMENON OF JEALOUSY IN OUR SOCIETY MORE APTLY THAN THIS STORY. THERE WAS A DISPUTE BETWEEN TWO MEN AS TO WHO WAS THE TALLER OF THE TWO. THE STRONGER OF THE TWO MADE THE WEAKER ONE STAND IN A DITCH WHEN THE HIGHT WAS BEING MEASURED. HE HAD ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE WITH HIM. HE COULD HAVE HIMSELF STOOD ON A TABLE WHEN THE HEIGHT WAS MEASURED BUT HE DIDNOT DO THAT. THIS REFLECTS OUR SOCIETAL VALUES WHICH SEEM TO GIVE US PLEASURE IN PULLING OTHERS DOWN. SOME CYNIC RECENTLY DESCRIBED THAT PH.D DOES NOT STAND FOR DOCTOR IN PHILOSOPHY. IT STANDS FOR “PULL HIM DOWN”. THE MORE INTELLIGENT A PERSON, THE MORE HARDWORKING A PERSON, THE MORE COMMITTED A PERSON, MORE PEOPLE ARE DISSIPATING THEIR ENERGY IN PULLING HIM DOWN. JEALOUSY IS ONE FACTOR WHICH IS LIKELY TO BE PRESENT IN EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL. HOWEVER, SUBLIMATING IT COULD RESULT IN THE PERSON USING MUCH MORE OF HIS ENERGY FOR ACHIEVING HIS OWN GOALS AND OBJECTIVES.

NOW TELL ME WHO IS TALLER ?
