Now coming back to Mahabharata...... there was a story i was reminded of today morning while sitting with my books.
One day, while training the princes for archery, guru Drona placed a bird's figure on the dart and asked all the princes to aim at the bird's eye. By chronological order the princes started attending their chances, as soon as they used to take the position n got their arrow ready to shoot, Drona would ask "what do you see prince?", all of them would reply saying they see the bird's figure on the tree, the leaves, the branches and the jungle surrounding the tree, and guru Drona would not let them proceed with the task. One by one all the prince came and went after answering this question and without completing their task. Then came Arjuna's chance, he was asked the same question before proceeding with the task "what do you see Arjun?" Drona asked, Arjun replied "gurudev, all i can see is the bird's eye" and Drona let him proceed with the task , and Arjun's arrow got it's target perfectly.
This simple story is the ultimate success mantra for all those who believe in the theory of karma, luck is a factor, but that luck is a supernatural thing, not for us to decide, not for us to ask, it is decided by someone up there very strategically and it doesn't fall in our domain, what lies in our domain is our Karma........ and this story is an inspiration towards it.
