There were once six blind men who stood by the roadside every day and begged from the people who passed. They had often heard of elephants, but they had never seen one. How could they; they were blind?
It so happened one morning that an elephant was driven down the road where they stood. When they were told that the great beast was before them, they asked the Mahout to let it stop so that they might see it.
Of course they could not see the elephant with their eyes, but they thought that by touching it they could learn just what kind of animal it was.
The first one happened to put his hand on the elephant's side. "Well, well!" he said, "now I know all about this beast. It is exactly like a wall."
The second felt only the elephant's tusk. "My brother," he said, "You are mistaken. It is not at all like a wall. It is round and smooth and sharp. It is more like a spear than anything else."
The third happened to take hold of the elephant's trunk. "Both of you are wrong," he said. "Anybody who knows anything can see that this elephant is like a snake."
The fourth reached out his arms and grasped one of the elephant's legs. "Oh, how blind you are," he said. "It is very plain to me that it is round and tall like a tree."
The fifth was a very tall man, and he chanced to take hold of the elephant's ear. "The blindest man ought to know that this beast is not like any of the things that you name," he said. "It is exactly like a huge fan."
The sixth was very blind indeed, and it was some time before he could find the elephant at all. At last he seized the animal's tail. "Oh foolish fellows," he cried, "you surely have lost your sense. This elephant is not like a wall or a spear or a snake or a tree, nor is like a fan. But any man with a particle of sense can see that it is exactly like a rope. Then the elephant moved on, and the six blind men sat by the roadside all day and quarreled about it. Each believed that he know just how the animal looked, and each called the other unkind names because they did not agree with each other.
