Very Short Inspiring Stories – Inspirational Leadership Stories
At the peak of one of the great Indian actor- Dilip Kumar’s Career during 1950’s, he explained how he was once traveling by plane. The passenger next to him was elderly. Dressed in a simple shirt and pant, he appeared to be middle class but well educated. Other passengers kept glancing at him. But this gentleman seemed unconcerned. He read his newspaper, looked out of the window, and when tea came, he sipped it quietly. Trying to strike a conversation, I smiled. The man courteously smiled back and said hello. We got into conversation, and I brought the subject to a cinema and asked, “Do you watch films?” The man replied, “Oh, very few. I did see one many years ago.” I then mentioned that I worked in films myself. The man said, “Oh, that’s nice. What do you do?” I replied, “I am an actor.” The man nodded, “Oh, beautiful.” That was it. When we landed, I held out my hand and said, “It was good to travel with you. By the way, my name is Dilip Kumar.” The man shook my hand and smiled, “Thank you. I am J. R. D. Tata (Billionaire business person and Chairman of Tata Motors – He was given the French Legion of Fame and, in 1992, India’s highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna).”I learned, no matter how big you are, there is always someone bigger. Be humble. It costs nothing.” – Very Short Inspiring Stories
