In a race, athlete Abel Mutai representing Kenya, was just a few feet from the finish line,

but he was confused with the signage & stopped thinking he had completed the race.

The Spanish athlete, Ivan Fernandez was right behind him & realising what was happening, he started shouting at the Kenyan for him to continue running;

but Mutai didn’t know Spanish didn’t understand.

Then the Spanish pushed him to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, “Why did you do that?”
Ivan replied, “My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life”.

The journalist insisted “But why did you let the Kenyan win?” Ivan replied, “I didn’t let him win, he was going to win”.

The journalist insisted again, “But you could have won!”

Ivan looked at him & replied, “But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honour of that medal?”

Ivan added “What would my Mom think of that?”

Values are transmitted from Generation to Generation.

Once in a Physics class, the teacher asked the students, “Why do we have brakes in a car?”

Varied answers were received:

“To stop”

“To reduce speed”

“To avoid collision” etc.,

But the best answer was,

“To enable you to drive faster”

Give it a thought.

For a moment assume you have no brakes in your car then how fast will you drive your car?

It is only because of brakes that we can dare to accelerate, dare to go fast and reach destinations we desire.

At various points in life, we find our parents, teachers, mentors and friends questioning our progress, direction or decision. We consider them as irritants or consider such inquiries as “brakes” to our ongoing work.

But remember, it is because of such questions (periodical brakes) that you have managed to reach where you are today. Without brakes, you could have skid, lost direction or met with an unfortunate accident.

I am deeply and sincerely grateful to all my priceless BRAKES .

Appreciate the “brakes” in your life. Without them we wouldn’t be where we are today.

One night Shankaracharya was desperately searching for something on the street outside his small hut.

When his pupil returned from his errand, he saw this and curiously asked the Master, “Aacharya, what are you looking for here on the street at this hour?”

Shankaracharya replied, “I lost my needle, I am looking for it.”

The pupil joined him in the search, but after searching for a while, he asked, “Can you try and recollect where you might have dropped it?”

Shankaracharya said, “Of course, I remember. I dropped it near the bed in the hut.”

The pupil, utterly astonished at the strange answer, said, “Aacharya, you say you lost it inside the house, then why are we looking for it outside?”

Shankaracharya innocently replied, “There is no oil left in the lamp, so it is pitch dark inside the house. Hence I thought of searching for it outside, since there is enough street light here.”

While holding back his laugh, the pupil said, “If you lost your needle inside the house, how could you even expect to find it outside?”

Shankaracharya simply smiled back at the pupil and said, “Isn’t that what we do? We run to far away temples and walk up mountains to search for what we have lost inside ourselves. We are all seeking outside what we have lost inside us. Why? Just because it is pitch dark inside.

Silly, aren’t we?”

“Light the Lamp inside you and find your lost treasure right there in.”

A pregnant mother asked her daughter, “What do you want- A brother or a sister?“
Daughter:- Brother
Mother:- Like whom?

Daughter:- Like RAVAN.

Mother:- What the hell are you saying? Are you out of your mind?

Daughter:- Why not Mom? He left all his Royalship & Kingdom, all because his sister was disrespected.
Even after picking up his enemy’s wife, he didn’t ever touch her. Why wouldn’t I want to have a brother like him?
What would I do with a brother like Ram who left his pregnant wife after listening to a “Dhobi” though his wife always stood by his side like a shadow? After giving “Agni Pareeksha” & suffering 14 years of exile.
Mom, you being a wife & sister to someone, until when will you keep on asking for a “RAM” as your son???

Mother was in tears.

Moral:- No one in the world is good or bad. Its just an interpretation about someone. Change YoUr perception.

REMEMBER: Not everyone who goes to a club is characterless and not everyone who goes to a temple is pure, so DON’T JUDGE!!

Once a Crow, holding on to a prey (piece of food), was flying to a place to sit & eat.
However, a flock of Eagles were chasing it. The crow was anxious and was flying higher and higher, yet eagles were after the poor crow.

Just then “Garuda” saw the pain in the eyes of the crow. Coming closer to the crow, he asked:
“What’s wrong? You seem to be very “disturbed” and in “stress”?”..

The crow cried “Look at these eagles!! They are after me to kill me”.
Garuda being the bird of wisdom spoke “Oh my friend!! They are not after you to kill you!! They are after that piece of meat that you are holding in your beak”. Just drop it and see what will happen.

The crow followed the instructions of Garuda and dropped the piece of meat, and there you go, all the eagles flew towards the falling meat.

Garuda smiled and said “The Pain is only till you hold on to it” Just Drop” it.
The crow just bowed and said “I dropped this piece of meat, now, I can fly even higher..”

There is a message for us from this story too:

  1. People carry the huge burden called “Ego,” which creates a false identity about us, that we create for ourselves saying “I need love, I need to be invited, I am so and so.. “etc…” Just Drop ….
  2. People get irritated fast by “others actions” it can be my friend, My parent, My children, My colleague, My life partner… and I get the fumes of “anger “…”Just Drop….
  3. People compare themselves with others.. in beauty, wealth, life style, marks, talent and appraisals and feel disturbed… We must be grateful with what we have … comparisons, negative emotions ..” Just Drop…

Some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, “This is for you, Daddy.” He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty.

He yelled at her, “Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, there’s supposed to be something inside it?”

The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, ”Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy.”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.
It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, as a human we have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love from our children, friends, family and may be from unknown persons. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold than real love. Feel , value and share it always !!
