    There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning corn.
    Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honour and prizes.
    One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learnt something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbours'.
    "How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter asked.
    "Why sir, "said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn.
    If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn."
    The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbour's corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions!<SCRIPT><!--D(["mb","\u003c/span\>\u003c/font\>\u003c/p\>\n\u003cp\>\u003cfont face\u003d\"Arial\" color\u003d\"blue\" size\u003d\"3\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt;color:blue;font-family:Arial\"\>Those who choose to be at harmony must help their neighbours and colleagues to be at peace.

    Those who choose to be at harmony must help their neighbours and colleagues to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.
    SUCCESS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN ISOLATION. IT IS VERY OFTEN A PARTICIPATIVE AND COLLECTIVE PROCESS.
    So share the good practices, ideas, new learning's with your family, team members, neighbours.
