DRESS DOES NOT MAKE A MAN GREAT


Shaikh Saadi was a great poet. He used to put on a simple dress. Once he took shelter in the house of a nobleman. The nobleman could not recognize him and treated him as an ordinary man. At that time he had a very simple dress on. The people of that house did not deal well with the poet. Rather they showed disrespect and dishonor to him. The poet left the noble man’s house in utter dismay. A few days later, he went there again with a gorgeous dress on. This time he was duly respected and honored by the people of the rich man’s house. They gave him rich food to eat. The poet did not eat the food but he began to put the food in his pocket. Seeing It the rich man was astonished. He asked the poet about his mysterious behavior. Then the poet said, “This food is for my dress, not for me. Had it not been so, I would have been treated in the same manner when I was poorly dressed.” The rich man was really sad for this. He begged forgiveness of the poet.
