STORY OF RAMA | PURAN SINGH
|| < : JUST SAY OM : > |
Rama did not permit anyone to speak to Rama against anyone .
" It is not good speaking ill of others and indulging in low , mean personal criticism of anybody . We must see the bright side of everything and everyone and justify them as ourselves . "
But sometimes the conversations on India and its leadership from many mouths would unconsciously stray away into personal criticism , when Rama would chant OM and say ,
" The temple bell has gone . Hush ! No personal criticism . "
And make us repeat OM again .
" You all get slack . The repetition of OM must go on " , Rama would constantly urge .
In this connection I recollect a humorous incident which may be related here .
There was one young Madrasi youth come with me from Lahore Technical School , Naidu , who , I believe , afterwards , went to America to learn applied chemistry and returned with success .
" Naidu ! Bring Dal . "
Rama would say , while taking meals outside the kitchen , and Naidu would promptly say just " OM " in reply .
And as Naidu would come back with Dal , Naidu would not say ,
" Here it is , Swamiji " , but only " OM " !
And so abrupt and enthusiastic was the repetition on every occasion , that once we all laughed for hours on Naidu's " OM " to everything and the one answer to every question .
