Once there were two friends, Milind and Suhas who studied in the same school. The international Mathematics council conducted an IQ test. Milind scored the highest marks. He was congratulated by his teachers and his fellow classmates and was interviewed by various news channels and famous personalities all over the world.
After travelling across the world, he finally returned to his school carrying a completely different personality all together. He neither behaved with his classmates in a friendly manner nor did he treat his teachers with respect. Being declared as the most intelligent boy on the planet had filled him with ego.
Suhas who was ill, attended the school after a week. He heard about the results of the IQ test and decided to congratulate Milind. He saw him walking on the corridor and waved his hand. To his surprise Milind didn’t respond even after seeing him. During recess, Suhas went to meet Milind but he didn’t show any interest and behaved rudely.
Suhas tried one last time to greet his dear friend but was treated in a vulgar and coarse manner. ‘Why are you following me since morning?’ said Milind. ‘I want to congratulate you for topping the IQ test,’ said Suhas. ‘I know I am the most intelligent child on the planet and I am least interested to talk to an imbecile like you,’ said Milind and went to his home.
Suhas stood shocked on the road. He felt disgusted and angry on being treated so insolently by his best friend. After returning to his home, he took an oath that he would teach him a lesson. He studied day and night putting his heart and soul into it. On the other hand, Milind was so overconfident that he didn’t study anything for his upcoming school exams.
As a result, Suhas due to his determination and patience topped whereas Milind failed miserably.
