Humility - Shambhavi Nautiyal
This chapter tells us the meaning of humility. It
tells us that humility is not to think less of ourselves but to think ourselves
less. In this chapter, the importance of humility is depicted. It informs us
that humility has to be present in an individual.
If a person has lost their humility and does not respect anyone else lesser than their status, then that person would not be great and will not be considered a genuinely good person. This chapter also depicts how humility becomes the first virtue and how it makes successful people great. It shows this through various examples of many well-known and flourishing people who remained humble, even after becoming what they are, simply achieving greatness and charm in the people’s hearts, which makes their success even more fruitful.
As shown in the chapter, some simple actions, like greeting workers at different public places with their names, making our juniors comfortable with us and making someone’s tiny wishes or dreams come true, can help us learn the vitality of humility, that also brings joy to those people. The way I see things, the chapter would help many kids like me understand why we should do these kinds of simple actions suggested to us by our parents and why they’re essential. I also observed that this chapter has shown many real-life examples and what happens when we do all this stuff for real, which encourages us to enact them.
We should start early to emerge other virtues and help ourselves rise by laying this foundation of humility.
