One day in a hilly village of India, there was a rock climbing competition for young children. There were many participants in the competition and a huge crowd gathered to see the race from top. It was going to be an exciting race because the rock was straight and it was a difficult climb.
As the race began, the children started making huge efforts to climb the straight rock.
But seeing the challenge that the rock posed, the spectators started commenting.
“Nobody is going to make it, it is hell of a difficult climb.” Said someone.
“Climbing this rock is difficult for champions, let alone these children!” said another.
“It is impossible!” shouted a third fellow.
Some children had already started giving up. Seeing this, more and more comments came from the spectators.
“Oh, WAY too difficult!!” “They will NEVER make it to the top.” “Not a chance that they will succeed.” “This is a very difficult climb!”
More children began collapsing. One by one…
… Except for those who were still climbing higher and higher…
The crowd continued to yell…
“The organisers should not have chose such a difficult climb!!! They are children after all. There will be no finisher!”
More children got tired and gave up… But ONE boy continued higher and higher and higher…
Difficult Climb… huh?
He wouldn’t give up!
At the end, everyone else had given up climbing the rock. Only this boy remained. The crowd yelled more, “You are already the winner, stop it now!”
But the boy wouldn’t stop. After a big effort, he reached the top! Everyone was surprised. Everyone wanted to know how he managed to do it?
They asked him, but he did not answer.
It turned out…He was deaf.
