Climax of Jealousy

This incident happened 20-25 years ago. We won’t say where this happened. But, we will share about what happened.
An art lover built a large mansion and wanted a good art piece to be displayed in the hall. At that time, XYZ was a famous artist. But, people were jealous of him. They would imitate his art and would apply black magic on him so that he could not progress and flourish.
However, the art lover booked an art gallery to hold an art competition. His intention was to buy the best art. All the artists reached at the right time. They did not allow the invite meant for XYZ to reach him. But, man proposes and God disposes. The art lover’s assistant met XYZ by chance and asked, “Why are you not at the competition?”
XYZ replied that he had not received his invite. The assistant said, “I sent it myself. Go there fast. Your fortune will turn for the better.”
XYZ went there as soon as he could with his art materials. There were just 15 minutes left for the competition to get over when he reached there. The other artists had left 3 feet distance on the wall in a corner and a few rags for him to use.
XYZ took his canvas there and drew a few lines on it. Then, he placed the rags on the canvas and left the place. Everybody began to laugh from their comfortable positions.
The art lover came. He saw all the paintings. They were all beautiful. His attention was attracted by the rags. He shouted at his servants, “What are these dirty cloths doing here?”
A servant ran to remove the rags. In the meantime, all the artists were confident that the art lover would be buying one of their paintings. The moment the rags were removed, everybody saw that a beautiful lady’s portrait welcomed them.
The art lover began to ask, “Where is this artist? Why is this painting hidden behind dirty cloths? Bring the artist to me.”
The assistant went to find XYZ and the other artists left the place with pitiable faces.
A similar incident happened with Raja Ravi Verma, the artist. Whenever a great man comes to live with ordinary people, this is what happens. A doctor couple belonging to another religion shared this with us.
