Two Brothers Sajid and Abid were invited to a dinner party. During the evening the topic turned towards the Moghul empire.The Host having very little knowledge on this topic, Said: " Moghul King Akbar left one of the greatest monuments of , architecture when he built the Taj Mahal." Sajid quickly Spoke and said: " No It was not Akbar who built the Taj Mahal, it was Shah Jahan." The host feeling upset by being corrected, in front of his guests refused to budge, he insisted that it was Akbar who had built the Taj Mahal. As the conversation became heated Abid spoke and said to his brother: " No you are wrong, our Host is correct the Taj Mahal was indeed built by Akbar". The argument was settled and the dinner party carried on as before. As they were heading home Sajid asked his brother: " Why did you take his side you know full well that it was Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal." Abid responded: " Yes I know that it was Shah Jahan, but what need was it of you to correct our Host in a room full of his guests, does it really matter who built the Taj Mahal, you insulted the mans pride and made him look foolish in front of others. My brother is it not better to lose an argument and keep a friend." Two Points to Ponder:
