A short event in the history which is described for a success in life, a motivational story.

Motivation by a spider

Defeat 17 times

After his 17th defeat in his attempt to conquer Somnath Temple situated at the shore of western Gujarat state of India, the Mogul King Muhumud Ghazni got fed up with his invasion and was resting in a cave. He got vexed and tired of further attempts. Keeping his eyes closed, he was thinking other options need to be tried to win the temple and how he could execute the next course of action, he was disturbed by a din outside the cave, that moment he noticed a cob web being built by a spider over his head. Normally any person would want to remove it immediately but this Mogul king was not so impregnated with that idea of removing it but he sharpened his eyes in watching the activities of the spider.

Cob Web
The spider was building its home and once completed the cob web, it was sitting at the centre. The king tore half of the cob web purposely with his sharp knife. The spider not resented to jump out but resumed to build its web again. Upon seeing this, the king tore and destroyed again and again expecting the spider would vacate that place. But the spider did not quit its effort in building the fome to a finish, remained in that place and rebuilt every time it was destroyed. The king got enthused and found charming to see the spider was untiring in its effort in rebuilding its home and tried again and again motivated him for the 18th attempt.
Untiring attempts
This untiring attempt of the spider flstory
in his mind, the king decided his 18th last attempt to conquer the temple at the western part of India in Arabian Sea. He moved quickly with his army and captured the temple and succeeded in his last attempt. This is history.
Remember this story
Continual effort will bring success. Every defeat is a stepping stone for a success. Keep on trying without losing hope until the victory is achieved.

motivation can sure come from where we least expect it, even from a spider web.

How interesting - this legend is also told about the Scottish king, Robert the Bruce. However, the chances of the story being true are extremely small!

It's like King Alfred Bruce's story. Somehow I never heard of it.
I liked the way you presented it.

King Alfred Bruce? That's a new one on me! King Alfred was the "cakes", Robert the Bruce was the spider - with several centuries in between (and both stories are almost certainly later inventions).

This was very motivational. It is good not to let failure stop us from still trying to achieve our goals.
