Prof Sahay says

My friend Prof Sahay, who taught Psychology; we retired same day; used to say always, ‘To win, we may need to get defeated’; particularly from your kids, or someone whom you consider close as your kid; very close friends whom you don’t want to lose. He is no more; today I attended his 2nd death anniversary. [b]How true this saying is, I realize this each moment. Please comment on his quote and share your opinion. Thanks in advance.[/b] Prof. Bhuwan September 04 2012

There are so many different things that could have been taken by his quote of saying that to win we do have to sometimes accept defeat. However, what I take away from it is that there are times that you do have to give in to the demands of other people and there will be times that they will give into our demands. Overall, I tend to think that life is a game of give and take and you will never be able to succeed in life if you never give in relationships.

i agree wih your friend.cmromises are to be made every day every year and every life.you cant get every thing without losing any thing.we get higher marks and positions of our class by losing rest and enjoyment time and hours of play.he was a great pshycologist indeed.also i feel sad for him.

Professor Bhaiya: Happy Teachers' Day. Last year also I was here in usa by this time of the year. But the year before that 2010 I remember taking class in a college and students wishes me happy teachers day. It is good you recollected the quote of another teacher on this teachers day--Prof Sahay -- let his soul remain in peace and in heaven. He is right. When we play with our grand sons we feel happy to get defeated or pretend as if we have been defeated. It is because we do not considered them as competitors. On the contrary with colleagues--we compare and do not want to be defeated. that is human nature. Yes. to get defeated to our near and dear ones is the main aim of life also.

dear professor, it is life's process. and remembering someone departed makes some sense of longing and you get the feeling of missing a friend. but just remember, they are there and at peace with the Lord now. they are happy where they are. take care. all my love ann

Hi professor! I think this means that in order to win the favors of some people, we have to give in to what they demand from us. In the case of kids, we are so soft hearted when it comes to their asking a favor from us. Thus, we always are defeated by their request.
