«One day, a young man was going for a walk when he reached a wide river. He spent a long

time wondering how he would cross such a gushing current. Just when he was about to

give up his journey, he saw his teacher on the other side. The young man shouted from the

bank, ‘Can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river?’ The teacher smiled and replied, ‘My friend, you are on the other side.’
