HOW VANITY TURNS A PERSON’S HEAD!

THOSE who have read a few books cannot get rid
of conceit. Once I had a talk with Kalikrishna
Tagore about God. At once he said, “I know all
about that.” I said to him: “Does a man who had
visited Delhi brag about that? Does a gentleman go
about telling everyone that he is a gentleman?”
Oh, how vanity turns a person’s head! There was a
scavenger woman in the temple garden at
Dakshineswar.
And her pride! And all for a few ornaments! One
day a few men were passing her on the path and
she shouted to them, “Hey! Get out of the way,
you people!” If a scavenger woman could talk that
way, what can one say about the vanity of others?
