“There were five blind men working as soothsayers in a rural market. One day, they heard the people in their market telling each other that there was an elephant from a circus passing through the market. Being blind from birth and growing up in the countryside, they were only able to understand something they could hear or touch. They knew what an elephant was but they had never had a chance to touch one. In their imaginations, they believed an elephant must be a huge animal, but they could not imagine its shape or its size. So, when the circus elephant was nearby, their curiosity was aroused. They pooled their money and then gave it to the mahout and asked him to stop his elephant right at the market so that they might touch it.
