Jennifer Paola Restrepo


Once upon a time, in a village far away, there lived six blind men. One day the villagers were very excited,
and when they asked what was happening they told them, are installing a statue in the center of the village
and so they decided, "Even though we will not be able to see it, we can feel it. Let's go." They were go to the
center, and each of them touched it:
"Hey, i think that it is a pillar," said the first man, touching its leg.
"Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second man, who was touching the tail of the statue "Oh, no! it is like the
branch of a tree," said the third man, touching the horns
"It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth man, who was touching the ribs
"It is like a huge wall," said the fifth man, touching the back of it
"It is like a pipe," said the sixth man, touching the snout of the statue.
They began to argue about what the statue was like, and each of them insisted that he was right.
They were getting angry, and fists were about to fly, when a wise man, who had come to see the statue
asked what the matter was.
They replied, "We cannot agree what this scuplture looks like," and each of them told the wise man what he
thought the statue was like.
The wise man smiled and calmly explained to them, "You are all correct. The reason that each of you
experienced it differently is because you touched a different part of the statue. Actually the
sculpture has all these features: Its legs are like pillars, its tail is like a rope, its horns are like the branches
of a tree, its ribs are like a fan, and it has a snout, that is just is like a pipe.
"Oh!" the blind men said, and there was no more fighting. They felt happy that they had all been right.

What is the moral of this story?


Each person has a different view of things and can not impose their thoughts or ideas on others.

Once upon a time, in a village far away, there lived six blind men. One day the villagers were very excited,
and when they asked what was happening they told them, are installing a thing on the plaza And so they
decided, "Even though we will not be able to see it, we can feel it. Let's go touch it." and each of them
touched it: "Hey, this seems is a pillar," said the first man, touching its leg. "Oh, no! it is like a rope," said
the second man, who was touching the hair "Oh, no! it is like the branch of a tree," said the third man,
touching the arm. "It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth man, who was touching the hand. "It is like a
huge wall," said the fifth man, touching the back. "It is like a pipe," said the sixth man, touching the cane.
They began to argue about what the thing was like, and each of them insisted that he was right. They were
getting angry, and fists were about to fly, when a wise man, who had come to see the event asked what the
matter was. They replied, "We cannot agree what this thing looks like," and each of them told the wise man

Actually the element has all these features: Its legs are like pillars, its hair is like a rope, its arms are like
the branches of a tree, its hands are like a fan, and it has a cane, that is just is like a pipe. "Oh!" the blind
