He was very hard to please and always found something wrong with each man—one had long hair, another small eyes, a third was too thin and another too tall. Among the applicants interviewed by the manager for the post was one Ram Kishan. He watched all this as he sat in the verandah patiently waiting for his turn to be interviewed. He resolved to be prepared for anything. When his turn came, all went well. The manager found nothing wrong with his appearance, size or constitution. He was so handsome, tall and strong that the manager was really pleased to see such a well-built young man. “Is your health sound?”, said the manager at last. “No sir”, replied Ram Kishan, “not quite.
