China’s Bamboo story by Rahul Dravid in one of his Speech

You can take China’s Bamboo seed and plant it on ground. Water, nurture the seed for an entire year and you will not see even an single sprout. In fact you will not see a single sprout for 5 years.

But suddenly and finally a tiny sprout will spring from the ground and over the next 6 weeks the plant can grow as tall as 90 feets. It can grow as fast as 39 inch in every 24 hours. You can literally watch the plant grow.

What was the plant doing all these years??

It was growing it’s root. For full 5 years it was preparing itself for the rapid and massive growth. Without the root structure, the plant couldn’t support for its future growth.

Some would say the plant grew 90 feets in 6 weeks. I would say it grew 90 feets in 5 years and 6 weeks.

Always try to be like Bamboo tree.Have deep courage and faith in yourself. Always keep trying and keep practicing your talent.

Always hope for the best.
