Rahul Dravid – advice for youngsters

My wife and I have built a new home with a lovely garden which houses  lovely bamboo trees. I got reading on the Chinese bamboo and learned  that the tree takes 5 years, 3 months to grow to its whole height of 80  feet. Yet, for the first 5 years, you only see a tiny green shoot, but  in the next 90 days, it grows into a full-fledged tree. But in those  first 60 months, it is growing its strong network of roots underground,  to support the tree.  In an era of instant gratification, we settle for  shorter trees, but remember patience has its reward. These are your  years of growing that strong network of roots but be sure when you  finally achieve your success, people will call it “overnight success”.  If only they knew of the Chinese bamboo!
