Calculation and Miscalculation

Updated on May 23, 2009

Understanding and Misunderstanding

I am not talking here mathematical calculation, but similar calculation in day to day life. When we meet some one for the first time we look at the person and began to think about the person. The person would be educated, wealthy, gentle, but dishonest, and many more. Or we just ignore about the person. The person may turn out very helpful and kind. The person may be lean and thin but may be very strong with a lot of resistance ability. The person may looks like villager, but could be very learned one. Some person looks not wealthy but could be billionaire.

There was an incident, my school teacher told me, long time back, a real story. A person with a very simple dress went to a market. He parked his Mercedes Benz car in a parking place. He along with his driver, who is also in a simple dress, went to buy clothes. He does not look wealthy. Because he looks so simple that the shop keeper did not gave any attention to him. That person chooses a costly clothes and asked price of clothes. The shop keeper told him 'you can not buy this clothes, it is very costly'. The man, buyer, told him "what do you think about me, I can buy your whole clothes. I can buy your shop itself, what is the cost of your shop?" The shop keeper thought he is making a joke and said a million dollar (something - high figure) thinking that he is still making a joke. The buyer said to him "serious?" The shop keeper challenged him. He still thought he is making a joke and said "yes". The person wrote a cheque, gave him and said “OK you go out; this is my shop now, I bought your shop”. The shop keeper still does not believe that the man has so much of money. He called the bank if the person has that much money in the bank. The bank answered back that there is much more balance in the bank account than the cheque amount. So he has to walk out of the shop.

With this background information I am trying to write that no one should underestimate anyone. And of course also should not over estimate anyone. If one makes wrong calculation and wrong understanding about a person, any action turn out wrong reaction. If the calculation turns out to the near to the truth one will get good result, benefit, for a good action.  If taken a wrong move and the calculation turns out wrong, one will have to suffer, like LTTE of Sri Lanka. Especially if some one is taking negative action, the result would be disaster to the person who takes negative action on the basis of miscalculation of the other person.

      Very true, we should not judge a person base on personal appearance. I bet nobody wants to be judge without knowing them yet. As the saying goes, "Do not do unto others what you don't want others do unto you." I just hope I've quoted that correctly. =)
