“Why don’t you say this to people who come to you for help and advice?”-Who asked this and to whom? What answer did the speaker get?

Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam asked this question to his father, Jainulabdeen.
Dr. Kalam’s father said that in every weal and woe human beings look for a special helper suitable for a particular purpose. A lonely person looks for company, a man in trouble looks for a helper. Whenever human beings reach an impasse, they search for a guide to show them the way out. For people in distress he himself was a mediator in their attempt to please demonic forces with prayers and offerings. But he did not approve of this approach. He spoke about twofold vision of destiny-(1) destiny is fate and (ii) character is destiny. He urged all to distinguish between the two.
