VIKRAM – THE ULTIMATE KING

Around 1830s, In A Kingdom called Udhampur, There was a man, popularly known as Vikram was living in the sub-divided villages.

He was professionally a cobler, used to make and stitch the shoes of common men, and also of the bonafide persons of kingdom,

He always believed in helping others whether they are known to him or unknown to him,he never discriminated in lending the helping hand to the people in need.

He felt that real satisfaction of his life is to make people feel good about the presence of another human being around, it could be a moral support , emotional support, and also monetary support.

He was popular and also considered as someone who could comeup with solution to everyone who reaches out to him for seeking a help in any problem.

But by doing so he never looked at his own life.

He remained poor and absolutely unchanged in his daily life although he was working for the palace of king and paid good for the service he usually did ,but he opted for a selfess social service.

But As there is a Problem in everything what we do, Few around him were not happy with his popularity and reach among people, they felt it is tarnishing the image of king ,as poor people felt going to king for a help is very tough than going to Vikram,

so these jealous people started their unnecessory adaptations against him and presented him as a cheater to king infront of king.

The alegations like cheater and person with some hidden desires and tresures were applied on him. There were many theories came that he a tually wants to show the king that he is not a good king or even a man with better admistrational skills than king.

few even laughed at him for his life, as he was poor and living a very miserable life with poverty, but has the tendency of helping others with his earnings, few considered it as a show off and few even stated that he has alot of money hidden somewhere with which he is doing some amount of help to people to earn a good name and diminsh the importance of king.

After listening all the allegations, the king finally asks with some anger and confusion ,

what is this all upto ?

are you really looking for helping people or you have some hidden desires , ?

do you feel that i am not a good king,?

do you think i am not approachable?

Do you think yourself a king, do you have alot of money to feed them?

Do you have ang tresure somwhere?

Are you getting any advices from the kings of other kingdoms?

For which vikram remains silent for a while and then says ,

Firstly i am not trying to diminsh your importance not even have any such intentions,

i am not getting any advices or helps from any, i really dont have any money, or any tresure,

i dont have any hidden desires not even any agenda,

i am no one to feel or have any opinion about your admistrational skills, you are my king and i know that from my birth.

Also i know the fact that i am just a cobbler not a king,

but what i also know is that you really dont need alot of money, or tresure to help a person next to me ,

you really dont need to have any personal desire to help a person in need, and above all you dont need to be a king to look for the people around you,

i feel that a good heart and pure soul is enough to do good to people next to you, you dont need to have a kingdom, not even the need of adminstrational skills.

It has nothing to do with my loyality towards you and kingdom,

it is just my humantarian effort for making my surrounding happy,

i wont mind if people feel it a propaganda, or they feel i am idiot or actually laugh at me, i wont mind if they consider me as a king or a cobbler,

what i know better is that i am human being first without any other label of professional duties and its limitations.

The king looks at him and smiles with sheer happiness, i am very happy to have a person like you in my kingdom, you really taught everyone that it is not a need of a position or profession to do your basic humanitarian responsibilites, everyone has their job to do for the happiness around themselves, for me you are king with all the qualites ,

so even if people laugh at your selfless approach and poverty , for me you are a true king, and from now on, i want you to be remembered as VIKRAM -THE ULTIMATE KING.

THE END
