Pointing Other’s Mistakes | Short Stories

Once there was a school where all types of arts were taught to students. Students from far away would come to school to learn different arts.

There was a boy Samar who was very passionate about painting and used to make beautiful landscapes and other paintings.

One day Samar made a painting with a lot of effort and found it to be the best painting he ever made. So he decided to put it on the display of school.

In the morning he put that painting on display and beside the painting he also put a note saying, “If you find any mistake please circle that part with black color.”

In the evening when Samar came to check his painting to check for mistakes he saw that the whole painting was covered with black circles. Samar got very sad and depressed as it was the best painting he ever made.

In his class, his teacher noticed that Samar was sad. So he called him to his cabin and inquired about the reason for being sad.

Samar told his teacher about what happened with the painting.

The teacher told Samar to make another painting and keep it on display but this time he should put a note with the painting saying, “Please correct the mistake in painting if you find any.”

The next morning Samar put on display a painting and did as his teacher instructed him to do. When in evening Samar came to check the painting he saw that there was no correction made on the painting he made.


He was surprised to see that. He went to his teacher to ask the reason.

His teacher replied, “For people, it is very easy to find mistakes in work done by others but when it comes to correcting that mistake by themselves. No one is ready.

We should understand that even after trying our best in doing things and building anything people will keep finding mistakes in them. One should not get sad or depressed by that, instead one should keep working harder to achieve one’s goals.”

Moral: We should not get Bothered about people pointing out Mistakes in our work. Instead, we should Continue to Work hard to achieve our goals.
