Once a person asked me, what exactly is moral support?
I told him to come with a bicycle the next day.
Next day I took him to a play ground which had a walking way (pagdandi) by the side barely one and a half feet wide.
I asked him to drive his cycle on it as fast as he can without touching the play ground. He drove very easily and very fast keeping the cycle in the center. He didn't touch the play ground even once.
Then I took him to a roof nearby from which a one and a half feet wide level wall was going to an other roof some 100 feet away and asked him to drive his cycle on this wall and go to the other roof. He declined saying he would fall.
When told "but you did drive on one and half feet wide pagdandi earlier without even touching the adjoining ground not to talk of falling..." he began to think.
What that adjoining ground provided without in anyway interfering but by just being there is what is called moral support... I told him.
In the same way there are some people who give moral support to others by not interfering in their lives but by just being there .
