Cockroach Theory

Cockroach Theory

As it is rightly said by Sundar Pichai, “IT IS NOT THE PROBLEM THAT DISTURBS YOU IN LIFE BUT ITS YOUR INABILITY TO DEAL WITH IT”. This theory of life is very beautifully explained by Pichai in his Cockroach Theory. Once a cockroach flew into a restaurant and sat on a lady. That lady got very scared and in her panic, she tried to get rid of that cockroach. The cockroach got off that lady but landed on another lady who continued the same drama. Sudhar Pichai was very patiently watching this scene and observed that a waiter came to rescue that lady. The cockroach flew away from that lady and sat on the waiter. The waiter reacted to this situation in a very different way. He stayed still and very confidently got hold of that cockroach and left it outside the restaurants. This situation made Sunder Pichai ponder that was really cockroach responsible for the chaos created by the two ladies but if that is the case then why did the cockroach not affect the way the waiter reacted. This situation made it very clear that it is not the situation that compels you to get disturbed but it is the inability to handle the situation. What matters in your life is your attitude towards life and your ability to deal with any situation.

This is a perfect way to understand the life through Cockroach Theory. A person can be HAPPY not only because everything is happy in his life. He will be happy because his attitude towards everything in his life is happy.
