A short story with a beautiful message…

Here is a short story with a beautiful message…

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,
‘Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.’
The little girl said, ‘No, Dad. You hold my hand.’
‘What’s the difference?’ Asked the puzzled father.
‘There’s a big difference,’ replied the little girl.

‘If I hold your hand and something happens to me,
chances are that I may let your hand go.
But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens,
you will never let my hand go.’

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

So hold the hand of the person who loves you rather than expecting them to hold yours…
This message is too short……but carries a lot of Feelings.

Short Motivational Story: A POUND OF BUTTER

A POUND OF BUTTER

There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he found that he was not. This angered him and he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, amour Honor, I am primitive. I don’t have a proper measure, but I do have a scale.” The judge asked, “Then how do you weigh the butter?” The farmer replied “Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker.”

What is the moral of the story? We get back in life what we give to others. Whenever you take an action, ask yourself this question: Am I giving fair value for the wages or money I hope to make? Honesty and dishonesty become a habit. Some people practice dishonesty and can lie with a straight face. Others lie so much that they don’t even know what the truth is anymore. But who are they deceiving? Themselves

 

Journey Special…

Ladies and gentlemen,
As I write this, I am moving on the wheels of Indian Railways.
Well, the first declaimer is that, the title of this writeup has came from Richa, my wife who is accompanying me in this journey today.
Ok so moving on, this is our first journey after the Rail Budget, before talking anything on current RM Suresh Prabhu, let me thank Ex RM Lalu Yadav who did only (probably) good thing in his political inning spread over decades by running Garib Rath Trains. Cheap & Best. Here I am not being concerned with it’s Air cooled  atmosphere but I like the way it is treated by Railway allowing it running on time and it’s matching speed with Rajdhani Train, however it is still a dream to see time being respected by Railway for all Trains. ”If you are student or working professional, you won’t like wasting half of your sanctioned holidays in transit/journey”
In this budget announcement of no new trains have given a hope that Minister Prabhu have kept all energy reserved to strengthen customer service.
My one sincere advise to Prabhu. ”Dear Minister, Target customer delight and your people may reach up to customer satisfaction (Delight is a distinction thing here)
Like every time when ever i start and end up going deep in my say on politics…
Oh yes, garmagarm samose is here, for which Richa was waiting since she took her seat in the train, she ordered.. as i am ending this she placed a piece of samosa into my mouth ☺

The Dirty Laundry

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning, while they are eating breakfast, the young woman watches her neighbour hang the washed laundry outside. “That laundry is not very clean”, she said, “she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbour would hang her washed clothes to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: “Look! She has learnt how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.

” The husband said: “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows!” And so it is with life: What we see when we are watching others, depends on the purity of the window through which we look. Our life is a creation of our mind !! So let us remember this Story of ‘Dirty Laundry’ and clean our windows before commenting or concluding on others and Your Life will surely give a better view!

Little Things & Big Difference – Short story

IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE

 Starfish

There was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn’t understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, “What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?” This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, “It makes a difference to this one.”

 

What difference are we making? Big or small, it does not matter. If everyone made a small difference, we’d end up with a big difference, wouldn’t we?
