Death is not greatest loss in life… Greatest loss is when life dies inside you while you are alive… Celebrate this event called life.
Santa was traveling in a crowded bus. He was carrying the passport-size photograph of his son for college admission. Accidentally, the photograph dropped down from his pocket. He started searching for it frantically found it on the floor below the ends of a woman’s saree.
He asked her, “Can you lift your saree? I want to take photograph”….
THE REST IS HISTORY…
He was beaten so badly that he had to be admitted to hospital. He was surprised to see Banta on the next bed to him in a worse condition.
Banta explained what happened to him. He had gone to a remote village to work. He finished late missed the last bus. He couldn’t find any hotel nearby.So he approached a nearby house asked the owner whether he can stay there for a night. The owner replied “I have 2 grown-up daughters. Sorry, you can’t stay here.”
Then he approached the next house and asked the owner whether he can stay there for a night. The owner too replied “I have 3 grown-up daughters. Sorry u can’t stay here.”
So he went to the next house asked “Do you have grown-up daughters?”
The owner asked “Why?” and Banta replied, “I want to stay for a night.”
THE REST IS HISTORY… boommmmmmmmmmmmm..!!!
The moral of the story is:
WORDS CAN SOMETIMES GET YOU INTO DEEP TROUBLE IF YOU DON’T USE THEM CORRECTLY …
A woodcutter was toiling to earn two meals a day. He met a monk. The monk advised him, ‘Drop being at the edge of the forest and go into the forest. Your daily hours of work will fetch you one month’s food.’
The woodcutter followed the advice. Deep within the forest, he found sandalwood trees. He was very happy. He expressed his gratitude to the monk for having guided him.
The monk advised again, ‘Take the risk of going still deeper into the forest. A day’s work will fetch you food for six months. Fortunately, this also turned out to be true; for he found a silver mine. He thanked the monk again, profusely. The monk further advised, ‘If you trust me and go further deeper into the forest, a day’s work will make you earn enough to fetch you food for a life time.’ This also turned out to be true; for he found a gold mine.
The woodcutter wondered, ‘why then does the monk still stay at the edge of the forest and not venture into the forest, as he has been advising me?’
He expressed his doubts to the monk. The monk replied, ‘If you want to be eternally happy, sit under this tree and I will teach you to go within. Then you will be eternally happy.’
To be outer winner, one has to explore the outside world. To be an inner winner, one has to go within oneself. The kingdom of heaven is within us.
One should balance being an outer and inner winner. Only then would one feel happy.
A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.” Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:
1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter’s Basilica
7. China’s Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list.
The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were so many.”
The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.”
The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World are:
1. to see
2. to hear
3. to touch
4. to taste
5. to feel
6. to laugh
7. and to love.”
The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we take for granted are truly wondrous! A gentle reminder – that the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man.
