WINNOW AND SIEVE (VALUES FOR LIFE)
Panchatantra compares the winnow and sieve with the qualities of a person.
A sieve lets go and allows all the good things to pass through its pores while retaining the waste things in it. On the contrary, a winnow discards the husk, stones and dust to let go and retains only the good and useful things.
The winnow retains what is useful while the sieve retains what is useless.
One should “be like a winnow retaining the positive things of life and not like a sieve which retains all the negative aspects of life!”
