Gnani vs. Idiot

Of late, am bumping into Sri. Chaganti Koteshwara Rao's videos on Internet and TV, where he explains "Sanatana Dharma" in simple Telugu. In one such video, he says, "Gnani should not be imitated and idiot should not be followed!" (or somethign to that effect). That line made me think a bit more about it. Hence this write up. 

There are many stories about how Einstein was absent minded. One such story is about his driver and many more stories can be found here. Here, the driver imitated Einstein, but a double-click from audience made him run for cover! 

Like wise, we should not follow an idiot - I need not give any proof for the same. 

Thus the statement made by Sri Chaganti Koteshwara Rao is proved! 

In our day to day life, we see a lot of folks around us, trying to imitate what they are not! Usually we play along, just to ensure we get that fun, to see that fellow fall flat.
