When Mahatma Gandhi was studying law at the University College London, a white professor whose last name was Peter, disliked him intensely and always displayed prejudice and animosity towards him. Also, because Gandhi never lowered his head when addressing him as he expected, there were always arguments and confrontations.
 One day, Mr Peters was having lunch at the dinning room of the university, and Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to professor. The professor said, "Mr Gandhi, you do not understand. A pig and a bird do not sit together to eat." gosh! what an insult. Gandhi looked at him as a parent would look at a rude child and calmly replied, 'you do not worry professor. I'll fly away," and he went to sit at another table. Mehn,what a reply. If it were you, you would have caused trouble. Mr Peters, angered with rage, decided to take revenge on the next test papers. if it was to be Nigeria, you know surely that you will never graduate again but,Gandhi responded brilliantly to all questions. Mr Peters, unhappy and frustrated, asked him the following question: "Mr Gandhi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom and another bag with a lot of money, which one would you take?".
Withhout hesitating, Gandhi responded, 'The one with the money, of course.".. omo, see sharp guy. So he should carry wisdom in this current economy situation?Mr Peters, smiling sarcastically said, I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom, don't you think?".
  Gandhi responded gently, 'That means you would have taken what you don't have."... (oboi, see reply...) Mr Peters, because of this, was so enraged that he wrote on Gandhi exam sheet the word: 'IDIOT' and gave it to Gandhi. Gandhi went to the professor and said to him in a dignified but sarcastically polite tone, "Mr Peters, you signed the sheet, but you didn't give me the grade.
 THE ANGRY PROFESSOR GAVE MR GANDHI HIS SCORE SHEET WITHOUT A GRADE! that was a crime and lack of wisdom..He became a victim of his anger. Anger and bitterness made him forget the needful. Such is life of millions on this planet. Don't let your anger lead you to sin. it's human and normal for US to get angry but don't let your anger lead you to sin.
  NOTE: Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than anything on which it is poured. Do you know that for every minute you are angry, you loose 60 seconds of happiness. No matter what you are facing, don't let secret anger weigh you down. Hold on to your creator and trust him.
