SUCH IS THE AFFAIRS OF STATE OR THE STATE OF AFFAIRS

 

 

It was six men of Hind… ostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind……

They conclude that the elephant is like a wall, snake, spear, tree, fan or rope, depending upon where they touch. They have a heated debate…..

And so these men of Hind..ostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right
And all were in the wrong.
