Ans:- The above line is taken from the autobiographical sketch "Strong Roots", written by A.P.J Abdul Kalam. When Kalam was a little boy, his used to take him to the nearby mosque for the evening prayer.

     When he came out of the mosque after the prayers, people of different religions would be sitting outsides and waiting for him. There are bowls, full of water in their hands. Kalam's father would dip his fingers in them and say a prayer. This water then carried home for invalids. The people also came to thank him after being cured. They believed that his father's prayer would cure the disease. On his enquiry, his father his father confessed that there is nothing mysterious about prayer. His father could convey complex spiritual concepts in very simple, down-to-earth Tamil. According to him, every human being is a specific element within the whole of the manifest divine Being. We should face our sufferings, difficulties. Because, adversity always presents opportunities for introspection.

     Then little Kalam asked his father why did not he tell the fact to the people who came. His father put his hands on his shoulder and looked straight in his eyes. He tried to judge him if he would understand his words. His wise father then answered, When we are in trouble, we always find a middle person who can consol us as well as make communication between God and us.

     The people who came to him in distress for special help, he tried to join their effort to propitate divine forces with prayers and offerings. Though he knew that it was not correct approach and it should not be followed. He didn't tell them as they were ordinary ignorant people as well as they didn't understand the complexness of the matter.
