Narrator sitting in a hotel room , hez looking outside from the window , hez just looking outside because it's beautiful outside . His room is nice and peaceful, weather is good, he has nobody to interrupt him . Hez having a cup of coffee and smoking a cigar . Just having a great time. There is a garden outside there are so many plants and flowers. There's one tree stump and one tree also. He started looking at tree and tree stump both. Suddenly wind started blowing and branches of tree started going in the direction of wind because the force of wind. After seeing this, a thought came in narrator's mind that it means tree is very weak , he can't stand still in front of power of wind that's why he is bending himself in direction of wind. Then he looked at tree stump. Tree stump remained still in front of the force of wind . Another thought came in narrator's mind that it means tree stump is stronger than tree because he don't bend himself and he fights with the wind like warrior . Then he looked at tree stump and another thought came in his mind that but tree stump don't have life in it . Hez almost dead. Another thought came in mind that it means things which don't have life in them how they can be flexible, theu can't because they dead. It means tree is flexible because hez living and that's why he bended himself when difficulty came to him. But after understanding that fact one question came in his mind . Narrator thinks; but how much we should bend ourselves during the time of difficulties because one should not totally surrender himself in front of difficulties because that means defeat. Then his eyes went on the lower part of tree he saw that upper part of tree is flexible but lower part ; means his roots are not flexible. Which means roots are roots and they can't be flexible , no comprises with roots, with deep values of life . So than narrator came on conclusion that things which are living should be flexible according to the situations of life but their roots should stand firmly and strongly . End .....
