WHAT YOU LEARN IN THE PAST CAN
HELP YOU IN THE FUTURE. OUR MISTAKES
AND EXPERIENCES ALSO HELP US TO
LEARN AND TO DO BETTER. WE SHOULD
NOT ONLY LEARN FROM OUR
EXPERIENCES, BUT OTHERS’ ALSO. FOR
EXAMPLE, GANDHIJI FOLLOWED THE
PATH OF NON-VIOLENCE AND GOT US
INDEPENDENCE. IT IS A BIG LESSON WE
SHOULD LEARN FROM AND APPLY.
ANOTHER EXAMPLE IS THE THREE

MONKEYS. THEY GIVE US A MESSAGE TO
NOT HEAR, SEE OR SPEAK EVIL. IF WE
DO NOT FOLLOW THIS, WE CAN HAVE
REALLY BAD RESULTS IN OUR LIFE.
THERE IS ALSO A POET CALLED KABIR.
HE WROTE MESSAGES THROUGH HIS
TWO-LINE POEMS CALLED ‘DOHAS’. ONE
OF HIS MESSAGES WERE “WHAT YOU
PLAN TO DO TOMMOROW, DO IT TODAY
AND WHAT YOU PLAN TO DO TODAY, DO
IT RIGHT AWAY”. THESE ARE REALLY
GOOD MESSAGES WE SHOULD KEEP IN
MIND AND APPLY. SO WE CAN INFER
THAT THE PAST IS A LESSON FOR THE
PRESENT.
