The Ant and the Elephant

Sometimes it so happens that the ant gets carried away by the image of an elephant and warms to his role to such an extent that does not notice how he gets under the elephant’s legs. Moreover he shifts the blame for it to the elephant, saying, “Hey, don’t you see where you are stepping?”

The same happens during the period of reforms, especially when they are long. Some regions get so carried away that forget to look at the stars, the sky, the clouds and below until they see themselves in this hierarchy.
