The vegetable problem
 
By Trippayar Sahasranaman Priyaa 
A story about adapting to situations
 
 
Raju and his sister lived with their grandmother in a small town called Bidar. Every morning Raju visited the fields near his house and plucked brinjals and tomatoes. His grandmother used to appreciate him each time he brought them over to her. One morning, Raju visited the field, yet he could not find enough brinjals on the plant. The tomato plant was exhausted too.
 
 
Upset, Raju returned home empty handed. His pet, Jaggu, followed him as he reached the gate with an empty basket in his hand. When he entered the gate, Raju
told his grandmother, “There
are no brinjals and tomatoes left
on the plant,” and frowned.
His grandmother smiled. She replied,
Raju, the only thing about life that everyone needs to know is that things around you keep changing. If man does not change or adapt as per the situation, he will never be happy. If there are no brinjals, there would be something else in store for us. You just need to
find it.”
 Raju still looked confused.
His grandmother then tied her old walking sticks one on top of another and said, “See,
these are my old sticks. Not one of them is strong enough to help me walk anymore, so I tied them all up and will use it for putting wet clothes on the line to dry. This is adaptation. Let me see how you adapt to this vegetable situation. Remember you
sometimes have to think a little and dig deeper if you want something.”
