There were 100 students in a hostel. “Singara” was served daily in their tiffin. But 80 out of 100 people did not want to eat the same food every day. They applied to the hostel supervisor for some other food in tiffin. But the remaining 20 people wanted to eat Singara every day.
Finally, the hostel authority organized a vote and said that the dish that got the most votes would be served in the tiffin every day.
The poll showed that those 20 students voted for Singara every day. The remaining 80 people voted exactly like this:
- Dhal puri: 18 people
- Parotta and Vegetables: 16 people
- Bread and Gram dal: 13 people
- Butter bread: 11 people
- Noodles: 10 people
- Vegetable Roll: 7 people
- Eggtoast: 5 people
As a result, Singara got the highest vote, and the hostel authority continued to serve Singara in Tiffin every day.
The moral of the story is:
As long as 80 percent of people are ambivalent about their interests, 20 percent of people will rule them.
