Sachindra was one of the wealthy man in the city. Ten years ago he had started his new business and soon he became successful. He had earned good money. It was his dream to be recognized as the wealthiest man in the city. For that he was doing everything that was possible. He had sponsored many programs in the city so that people will know him well.
Now there was a new club opened in the city whose name was "The Elite Club". Sachindra wanted to be a member of that club, but the membership was not open to all. Only a member of club had the right to suggest the name of the person for new membership. Also club's fee was quite high - few lacks. Other charges of the club were also high. But the club was having many facilities like Golf Court, Tennis court, Jogging Track, Gym, Spa, Library etc. And the club was having some strict rules, following which was possible only for wealthy men. For Sachindra getting membership of that club was a chance for getting new business opportunities. So he was trying for that.
Finally he met a rich man who was member of that club and he was ready to suggest Sachindra's name for club's membership. He gave him the necessary forms to fill up for membership and wrote a suggestion letter for Sachindra.
Finally on one day Sachindra got a call from "The Elite Club" and he was asked to come for an introduction. Sachindra was very busy in those days and in happy mood of getting the membership, he immediately went to the club. But alas! The man at the door stopped him while entering in. Sachindra asked him, "What happened? I have all papers with myself and an appointment with club's president."
That man said, "Sir, you are not following all the rules."
Sachindra cried, " I have followed all your rules. I have worn this suit worth Rupees twenty thousand. I have worn the tie also with club's tie pin on it. See my shoes which are of latest brand. See my expensive branded watch. Now why are you stopping me?"
That man answered, "Sorry Sir, but you have forgotten to clean shave your stubble. We do not give entry to members if they are not clean shaven. We follow our rules very strictly. So I will not allow to you to go inside. Please take appointment again for another day and come in clean shaven, well groomed look. Then only I will give you entry."
By that answer Sachindra knew that, it was his stubble came in way of his chance to make a good impression and he had lost one chance.
