'Knowledge gained through experience is far superior to and many times more useful than theoretical knowledge.
Discuss the above statement in the light of the fact that the hermit did not answer the king's questions as soon as they were put to him.

Dear Student,
Given below are few points that will help you frame a complete answer. 
  • The hermit did not answer the three questions of the king as soon as they were asked.
  • On the other hand, he continued doing the task in hand and waited for the king to observe the situation he was placed in.
  • It was this involvement in the situation that helped the king to act accordingly.
  • The hermit did not hurry to explain what he was trying to show.
  • On the other hand, he waited for the day to end.
  • When the king asked the hermit the answers, the hermit responded that he, himself had found the answers.
  • The lesson is a reminder that knowledge gained through experience is far superior to and many times more useful than theoretical knowledge.
