(Maulana Wahid-ud-Din Khan)
An American author has described this quality of Japanese in the following words; “they became masters of transformation instead of becoming its victims.”
A travelogue mentions a Japanese engineer Shogo Kata Kara whom I met in Maldives. Answering to one of my questions he said that Japan’s geographical conditions have made the Japanese to always think of innovations. There are frequent weather changes and they are faced with new challenges due to repeated earthquakes and storms. That’s why Japanese have to think as how to cope with the changing conditions. This situation has made the Japanese to keep searching for new ideas. This is the temperament that helped the Japanese after the Second World War. After the war, they reconsidered their condition in the light of changed circumstances. And they achieved great success by adopting new ways according to the new conditions. An American author has described this quality of Japanese in the following words; “they became masters of transformation instead of becoming its victims.” The journey of life is not always smooth. The life is full of troubles and mishaps both individuals and nations are faced with these. This system is itself created by the creator so no one can escape it.
In such condition, there is only one way to success and that is to keep moving on despite all the hardships. One should have the courage to reach his destination regardless of all the adversities. Don’t complain of the changing circumstances rather find out new solutions for the new conditions, you will always be successful.
