The Wrist Watch.

We all know about Swami Vivekannada's  magnetic speech  at the Parliament of Religions,Chicago.When he was in U.S.A he happened to travel in a local train  . Three  young girls in their teens came and sat opposite to Swamiji. When they saw the Swamiji's saffron dress , they made  fun of his physical appearance and giggled at him.

As usual Swami Vivekananda remained cool without uttering a word. Eventually they saw the watch ( gifted by his devotee)  on Swamiji's wrist. The girls then asked him to give the wrist watch to them ,otherwise ," we shall call the cops on some false accusations against you." they said.

Swami Vivekananda did not give any reply . Instead he gestured to the girls that he is deaf and asked them to write on a piece of paper.. The girls immediately took a piece of paper and wrote," If you don't give the wrist watch to us, we shall call the cops and make  some false accusations against you."

Now, Swami Vivekananda spoke " Now you call the cops. I need to make a complaint based on this " showing the written paper.

Imagine the plight of the girls now. With great discomfort they left the place.

Here is the message,
One should be bold and without fear, with an exceptionally strong common sense!
