50 rupees

A must read short story of HELP :
“I lost Rs. 50 somewhere on the road!

On my way I found a piece of paper tied to an electric pole, with a small note on it.

I was curious to know what was written, hence went closer and read it. “I lost Rs. 50 somewhere on the road. If any of you find it, please give it to me at this address. My vision isn’t great so please help.”

I was to follow that address and found an old hut in shatters with an older woman sitting outside. She was frail and asked who is it, following my footsteps.

I said I came by this way, found Rs. 50 on the road so wanted to handover to you.

She began crying on hearing this. She said “my dear I have had atleast 30-40 people come over and give me Rs. 50 saying they found it on the road. I didn’t write that note; I cannot even see properly nor do i know to read and write”

I said it’s OK amma you keep it. She asked me to tear that note off on my way back.

I walked back with a million thoughts as to who could have written that note? She would have asked everyone to tear that note but none did. I mentally thanked that person and realised that we just have to feel the need to help, there are many ways to do.He/she just wanted to help this old woman

Someone stopped me n asked, “Bro, can you help me with this address? I found a 50 rupee note, want to handover””

Ubuntuย 

*UBUNTU* – 
UBUNTU IS a very nice story from Africa …
The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture in Africa …
An Anthropologist proposed a game to the African tribal children …
He placed a basket of sweets near a tree
And made the children stand 100 metres away. 
Then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.
When he said ‘ready steady go!’ …
Do you know what these children did?
They all held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.
When the Anthropologist asked them why they did so,

  

They answered ‘Ubuntu’.
Which meant –

_’How can one be happy when the others are sad?’_
Ubuntu in their language means –

_’I am because we are!’_
A strong message for all generations !!!!
Let all of us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go.
Let’s have a *_Ubuntu_* Life … … *I AM BECAUSE WE ARE…*

Prayer worth

Martha, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. 

She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would give  her a few groceries on credit. 

 

She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

 

The grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once.

 

In desperation, she pleaded: ‘Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.’

 

The grocer told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store. 

A well-dressed stranger standing beside the counter, overheard the conversation between the two. He walked forward and told the grocer that he would pay for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, ‘Do you have a grocery list?’

 

Martha replied, ‘Yes sir.’     ‘O.K’ he said, ‘put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.’

 

Martha hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

 

The eyes of the grocer  showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.

 

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the stranger and said begrudgingly, ‘I can’t believe it.’

 

The stranger smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.

 

The grocer stood there in utter frustration.  Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it in great amazement.

 

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

 

‘Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.’

 

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.

 

Martha thanked him and left the store. The stranger who was Jesus, handed a Gold coin to the grocer and said the Creator  knows how much a prayer weighs.’

 

THE POWER: When you receive this, say a prayer. That’s all you have to do.

 

Just stop right now, and say a prayer of thanks for your own good fortune…

 

I believe if you will send this  out with prayer in faith, you will receive what you need God to do in you and your families’ life..

 

So dear friend,  trust God to know your very own needs, heal the sick, provide food for the hungry, clothes and shelter for those that don’t have as we do. 

 

*My prayer for you today*:

 

_*The eyes beholding this message shall not behold evil, the hands that will send this message to others shall not labor in vain, the mouth saying Jesus Saviour to this prayer shall laugh forever. Remain in God’s love as you send this prayer to everybody on your list. Have a lovely journey of life! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will never fail you because He is LOVE*_!

 

TAKE 60 SECONDS and send this on quickly and within hours, you will have caused a multitude of people to pray to God for each other. Then sit back and watch the power and love of God  in your life.

Mom my angel

This is too beautiful not to share. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸA Newborn’s๐Ÿ‘ถ Conversation with God ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ

           

๐ŸŒธ๐ŸA baby๐Ÿ‘ถasked God,๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,  but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ 
๐ŸŒธ๐ŸGod said, ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž”Your angel ๐Ÿ‘ผwill be waiting for you and will take care of you.” ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ

๐ŸŒธ๐ŸThe child ๐Ÿ‘ถfurther inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ 
๐ŸŒธ๐ŸGod said, ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž”Your angel ๐Ÿ‘ผwill sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s ๐Ÿ‘ผlove and be very happy.” ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ

๐ŸŒธ๐ŸAgain the small child ๐Ÿ‘ถasked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ
๐ŸŒธ๐ŸGod said,๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž”Your angel๐Ÿ‘ผ will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel ๐Ÿ‘ผwill teach you how to speak.”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ

๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ”Who will protect me?” ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ
๐ŸŒธ๐ŸGod said, ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž”Your angel ๐Ÿ‘ผwill defend you even if it means risking her life.”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ 

๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ”But I ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿžwill always be sad because I ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿžwill not see you anymore.”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ

๐ŸŒธ๐ŸAt that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child ๐Ÿ‘ถhurriedly asked, ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿž”God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s๐Ÿ‘ผname.”๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ

Indian salesmanย 

A young, well qualified PSU Bank Officer left the job, emigrated to Canada for better prospects and applied for a salesman’s job at Vancouver’s premier downtown department store. It was the biggest store in the world: you could get anything there.
The boss asked him, “Have you ever been a salesman before?”
“Yes sir, I was a salesman in India. I sold…

PMJDY

PMSBY

PMJJY

GOLD COINS

ASHIANA SCHEME

DREAM CAR SCHEME etc.”
The boss liked him and said, “You can start tomorrow. Learn fast and do well.”
The first working day was long and arduous for the young man, but he got through it.
Finally 6 pm came around. The boss duly fronted up and asked, “How many sales did you make today?”
“Sir, I made ONE sale!” said the young salesman rather happily.
“Only one sale?!” shot back the boss. “No! No! You see, most of my staff make 20 or 30 sales a day.
If you want to keep this job, you’d better be doing better than just one sale.
By the way, how much was your sale worth?”
“933005 dollars ,” said the ex-banker.
“What?! How did you manage that?” asked the flabbergasted boss.
“Well,” said the salesman, “this man came in and I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium hook and finally a really large hook.
Then I sold him a good fishing rod and some fishing gear.
Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast.
So I told him he’d be needing a boat, so I took him down to the boat department and sold him that 20-foot schooner with the twin engines.
Then he said his Volkswagen wouldn’t be able to carry it, so I took him to our automotive department and sold him that new Deluxe 4X4 Blazer.
I then asked him where he’ll be staying and since he had not decided, I took him to camping department and sold him a six-sleeper camper tent.
Then he said I should throw in about $200 worth of groceries and two cases of beer.”
The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, “You sold all that to a guy who came in for a fish hook?!”
“No, sir,” answered the young man, “he came in to buy a headache relief tablet and I convinced him that fishing is the best remedy for headache.”
Boss: “In which bank did you work?!”
“State Bank of India, sir.”
Boss: “Please take my chair. I want to join your old organisation.” ๐Ÿ˜…

Running Crab

Once upon a time there was a crab who was  running on the sea shore and was admiring its beautiful footprints* *Suddenly a huge wave splashed and washed away the footprints.* *The crab was very angry and said to the wave,* *”I considered you as one of my best friends, who knows me so well , so what made you do this?* *” The wave replied, As you were admiring your foot prints, A fisherman on the shore was following your footprints, that’s why I cleared it off*…  *”Relationships mean caring beyond imagination*”. *Value your friends  and don’t ever doubt the intentions*. *Never hurt those who value you in life*

Dog fight

๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚The Americans and Russians at the height of the arms race realized that if they continued in the usual manner they were going to blow up the whole world.

One day they sat down and decided to settle the whole dispute with one *dog fight.* They’d have five years to breed the best fighting dog in the world and whichever side’s dog won would be entitled to dominate the world. The losing side would have to lay down its arms. The Russians found the biggest meanest Doberman and Rottweiler dogs in the world and bred them with the biggest meanest Siberian wolves. They selected only the biggest and strongest puppy from each litter, killed his siblings, and gave him all the milk. The used steroids and trainers and after five years came up with the biggest meanest dog the world had ever seen. Its cage needed steel bars that were five inches thick and nobody could get near it.

“When the day came for the fight, the Americans showed up with a strange animal. It was a nine foot long Dachshund. Everyone felt sorry for the Americans because they knew there was no way that this dog could possibly last ten seconds with the Russian dog.

“When the cages were opened up, the Dachshund came out and wrapped itself around the outside of the ring. It had the Russian dog almost completely surrounded. When the Russian dog leaned over to bite the Dachshund’s neck, the Dachshund leaned up and consumed the Russian dog in one bite. There was nothing left at all of the Russian dog.

The Russians came up to the Americans shaking their heads in disbelief. `We don’t understand how this could have happened. We had our best people working for five years with the meanest Doberman and Rottweiler dogs in the world and the biggest meanest Siberian wolves.”

“That’s nothing”, an American replied. “We had our best plastic surgeons working for five years trying to make an alligator look like a Dachshund.'”๐Ÿ˜

Never forget your friend

I never sat on a sofa with my father & after my marriage, he had already left me…….

“Many years ago, after I got married I was sitting on a couch on a hot, humid day, sipping frozen juice during a visit to my father.
As I talked about adult life, marriage, responsibilities, and obligations, my father thoughtfully stirred the ice cubes in his glass and cast a clear, sober look at me.
“Never forget your friends,” he advised, “they will become more important as you get older.”
“Regardless of how much you love your family and the children you happen to have, you will always need friends. 
Remember to go out with them occasionally, do activities with them, call them …”
“What strange advice!” I thought. “I just entered the married world, I am an adult and surely my wife and the family that we will start will be everything I need to make sense of my life.”
Yet I obeyed him; kept in touch with my friends and annually increased their number. Over the years, I became aware that my father knew what he was talking about!
In as much as time and nature carry out their designs and mysteries on a man, friends are the bulwarks of his life.
After some years of life, here is what I learned:
Time passes.

Life goes on.

The distances increase

Children grow up & and become independent and although the it breaks the parents’ heart but they are often separated from them.
Jobs come and go.
Illusions, desires, attractions, sex … weaken.
People do what they should not do.
The parents die.
Colleagues forget the favors.
The races are over.
But, true friends are always there, no matter how long or how many miles they are.
A friend is never more distant than the reach of a need, reaching out to you intervening in your favor, waiting for you with open arms or with blessings for your life.
When we started this adventure called LIFE, we did not know of the incredible joys or sorrows that were ahead. 
We did not know how much we would need from one another. 

Love your parents, take care of your children, but keep a group of good friends.
Dedicated to all my Friends.โคโคโค

Parents live forever

Parents live forever…
They say when parents die, the world comes to an end. The house looks empty. But I feel that parents live forever and they stay with us. It’s we who forget them.
The fact of the matter is that a brother has the eyes of the beloved father, a sister’s pretty face is like that of your compassionate mother, a sibling smiles like dad or a sister cooks like mom.
Parents don’t die. They never leave us. The live among us. They live in us.
We’re  reflections of our parents. Despite their physical absence, they continue to live in us.
When you want to remember your parents or you want to see them, when you want to be with them, simply gather your siblings around you. And you’ll find the mesmerizing smile of your mom in one sibling, the soothing voice of your dad in another. You’ll feel them very close to you. All around you. Deep inside you.
The garden of love that our parents cultivate and grow with love, from the time we’re born, with their blood, sweat and tears will continue to bloom, unaffected by the cycles of tough weather. They shelter us in tough times. 
But there are times, when we forget all their hard work and destroy the paradise they built, with our selfishness, hatred, and opportunistic attitude. 
Parents don’t die. We put them to death.
Love your parents. Love your siblings. Continue to feed the garden that your parents cultivated with love and compassion so that it never ceases to bloom and blossom. 

You’ll make your world a living paradise on earth. A heaven that only knows love, compassion, care, respect… with your loved ones around you.
