In 1912 the British Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his men were caught in a fierce blizzard and perished while returning to their base camp, after reaching the south pole. Their tent, buried under snow was discovered the following year by Sir Ernest. He handed over a letter written by Scott to his author – friend, James Barvie. After describing the blizzard and their impending doom, Scott wrote that he and his colleagues were spending the time singing songs and making pleasant conversations. Below these lines he had also written in bold letters, one word- COURAGE. When he returned to England, Shackleton handed over the letter to Sir James Barvie who read it and kept it in a box.
A few years later Sir James developed some defect in his right hand because of which he could not hold a pen. The author despaired of ever being able to write again. One day, in a despondent mood, he took out Scotts letter and read it again. It lifted his spirits and set him thinking. If Scott and his men could remain cheerful in the face of death, could he too not learn to face adversity bravely? He picked up his pen and began practicing writing with his left hand. In a few weeks he could write perfectly well with it.
