Rock Star

Bruce Charles owned a horse……that he had named Rock Star. He had got this horse because his friends owned horses too…….this would provide the close circle of friends another common subject to discuss about.

Around the winter season…that year….Rock Star…..the horse… fell sick for whatever reason. Bruce got worried. He thought about it and instead of visiting a Vet Clinic decided to consult his friend…Richard Lewis..who was also fond of horses and owned many…..and to seek his advice about the matter.

Somewhere at the back of his mind…..he recollected that Richard had similar issue with one of HIS horses sometime ago.

He called Richard and informed him about the sickness of Rock Star. Bruce then went on to discuss with him about the medicine that Richard had used for HIS horse. Richard told him the name.

Bruce, then, immediately, went to the market to buy the medicine…..since he did not want to delay the treatment any longer. He brought home the drug mentioned by Richard and administered it to the horse.

Rock Star died a few hours later.

Bruce did not know what had gone wrong…….he was sad, depressed and baffled. He called Richard’s business place…..that is where he expected to find him at that hour……and after Richard came on the line…..Bruce began to express his astonishment…..”Look Richard…..do you remember…in the morning I told you about Rock Star….that he was sick….I asked you about the medicine….you gave me the name of the medicine….i bought that medicine…..gave it to the horse…..and, you know what……..he died”

And…Richard replied…”Oh yeah?…….well, mine had died too!”

We have got to learn to ask our questions well……and holistically……agreed! But…what about the person who is trusted for providing the answer!
