The story of Arjuna shooting an arrow into the eye of a fish in the Mahabharata has been a surefire formula for success for the people of India for centuries. Now Anand Mahindra has shared one such video of fishing which teaches the basic mantra of being successful.
Anand Mahindra has tweeted a video (Anand Mahindra Tweet). In this video, a child waits to get caught in a fish hook by putting a pulley (like a kite-flying winch) on the pond’s banks.
Regarding this video, Anand Mahindra has written, “This video arrived in my inbox without any message. In a world where confusion increases day by day, it is comforting to watch this video. This one ‘small story’ proves that success is achieved with talent, commitment and patience.
This showed up in my inbox without commentary. It is strangely calming to watch in an increasingly complex world. A ‘short story’ that proves: Determination + Ingenuity + Patience = Success pic.twitter.com/fuIcrMUOIN

First inspired by ‘Bal Guru’
Anand Mahindra has shared a video of a child even before this. In that video, a small child told the mantra of a happy life like a motivational speaker. Anand Mahindra even gave that child the title of ‘Bal Guru’.
This video’s from 2018. I believe this young man is quoting motivational speaker Prem Rawat. So he’s not a young Guru himself. But when children communicate, their innocence imparts their words with unparalleled power & impact. It’s made me re-examine ‘what I practice’ everyday. pic.twitter.com/PSks1ji8iE

The child in the video asks people what they practice daily in their lives, whether they practice being joyful, peaceful and happy, or are they surrounded by complaints, anger and anxiety. He says that if you only complain, you become so good at it that you also complain about that thing in which there is no shortage.
Similarly, if you adopt anger in life, you get angry even on ‘trivial’ things. If you have made worry your partner, you also worry about the buffalo you do not have. That’s why I say you rejoice…
