The selfless and humble ones

Author: Dr. Ali Khwaja

Perma-link for article:

Every now and then I come across a person who seems to be very ordinary and average. Slowly I come to know that he or she has immense talents, even great achievements, and has been highly successful in some field. I have immense admiration and regard for people who are humble even when they have reason to be proud. They don’t try to impress you and gain attention. They “do what they do” (famous words of former Reserve Bank Governor Raghuram Rajan, another humble soul who willingly went back to a teaching position in USA) because they WANT to do, whether someone acknowledges them or not.

In a world full of people who spare no opportunity to blow their own trumpet, it such a pleasure to meet the selfless and humble ones, and get mesmerized as I learn more and more about their wisdom, qualities and achievements. I always look around for such people.
