6 blind men touch a different part of the elephant thinking the elephant is like something else.
Once, there were six blind men who had different opinion's of what an elephant looked like. So they went to a sanctuary to touch one.
The first man felt the body and said it felt strong and sturdy like a wall.The second man felt the tusk and thought it felt like a spear.
The third man felt the trunk and declared it felt like a giant snake.The fourth man felt the leg, he concluded it felt like a tree.
Different part of elephant….
The fifth man touched the flappy ear, he said it felt like a fan.The sixth man touched the tail and thought it felt like rope.
They decided to rest before travelling back home so they talked about the elephant. But it quickly went from conversation, to argument over what the elephant felt like.
A passer by heard the racket and went to find out the problem. He explained to them each of them was partly correct and also incorrect. Each of them was touching a different part of the animal. Once they put the parts together, it formed the elephant.
