Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, 's positive attitude

Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, the great philosopher and former President of India, made his first visit to the United States when John F. Kennedy was the President.
The weather was dark and stormy in Washington; and when Dr. Radhakrishnan alighted from the plane, it began to rain cats and dogs, as the ex-pression goes.
The young American President greeted his Indian counterpart with a warm handshake and a smile. "I'm so sorry we have such bad weather during your visit,"
he remarked courteously.
The philosopher- statesman smiled. "We can't change bad things, Mr. President," he observed. "But we can change our attitude towards them."
