Once, on the bank of a river, a monkey made a home for himself in a tree laden with fruit. He lived in it happily eating to his heart’s content the fruit of his choice. The monkey was happy but lonely and wanted a companion to talk to and share the fruits with. But there was no one around, not even another monkey, till one day a crocodile appeared on the riverside.

“Hello, there,” said the monkey. “Do you live in this river? Would you like to eat some fruit?”

“Good morning,” replied the crocodile politely. “I did come here in search of food for myself and my wife. Nice of you to offer me fruit.”

The monkey plucked some from the nearest branch and threw them down. The crocodile found them delicious. “Thanks,” he said. “May I have some on my next visit?”

“Certainly, as many as you like and some for your wife too,” said the monkey. “Do come again. I’m rather lonely here.”

The crocodile visited the monkey regularly and ate the fruits which his host threw down. He took some home for his wife. The monkey and the crocodile were now the best of friends. They talked and were never tired of talking. They talked about birds and animals, about the villages nearby and the difficulties villagers faced in raising good crops for lack of rain.

One day, the crocodile stayed with the monkey longer than usual. His wife was annoyed waiting and waiting managing the little crocodiles that had just been hatched. She said, “Who is this friend of yours you are so fond of?”

“Oh, he is a very nice monkey,” he replied. “He lives on a fruit-tree. He sends fruits for you everyday. You don’t expect me to climb trees, do you?”

“A nice monkey, I’m sure,” replied the wife with obvious sarcasm. “If you ask me, this monkey should be my food. I want to eat his heart so much.”

“What a foolish thing to say!” shouted the crocodile. “I can’t kill a friend, though I won’t mind a monkey occasionally for a change of taste.”

“You bring him here,” ordered the wife. “I want to see him.” “So you can eat him. Never!” declared her husband.

His wife was furious and she dived in to hide herself at the bottom of the river leaving the little ones to pester their father.

The crocodile was in a serious dilemma. He loved his wife and was very fond of his friend too. Finally, he decided to be on the side of his wife. She was his life-partner after all. ‘I know it’s a sin to betray a friend, but I have no choice,’ he said to himself. ‘I’ll invite the monkey home and hope for the best.’

“My wife wants you over for a meal, dear friend,” said the crocodile when he visited the monkey next. “You must come home with me today.”

“With pleasure,” said the monkey. “I’m no swimmer, but can ride on your back.” And they set out.

In the middle of the river, where the current was the strongest, the crocodile could no longer hide his intention. “Sorry, my friend,” he said hesitatingly, “but I have to go under water now. I’ve brought you here to kill you. My wife cannot survive without eating your heart. Good bye.”

The monkey was scared and distressed. But he was sensible and clever like all monkeys. He kept a cool head. Calmly he said, “I’d do anything for you and your family. You are my only friend. After all, what is a monkey’s heart compared with the life of a crocodile’s wife? But how foolish could you be? Why didn’t you tell me before? I’d have brought my heart along.”

“But where is your heart?” asked the crocodile innocently. “I thought you carried it all the time.”

“Of course not. It’s there on the tree. Let’s swim back at once and get it. Your wife must be waiting,” replied the monkey gaining confidence.

“Oh dear! What a mistake!” hissed the crocodile. They laughed loudly as the crocodile took a full turn to reach the tree.

On the river-bank, the monkey jumped on to the tree and heaved a deep sigh of relief. He plucked a fruit or two from the nearest branch and throwing them down said, “Let your wife have some fruit rather than my heart. Fresh fruits are good for mind and body. Good bye, friend, and if you don’t mind, we won’t meet again.” The crocodile, sadder and wiser, shed a few tears which were genuine and turned back to go home. He was in a hurry to tell his wife a thing or two.

Long ago, in a small village lived Vishnudutta, a poor Brahmin farmer. He worked hard but was not able to earn much. His son, Somadutta was always asking for more money. “Be satisfied with what you have, my son,” Vishnudutta would say.

One day, Vishnudutta was resting in his field after work . Suddenly, he noticed a snake on the nearby mount. On seeing Vishnudutta, the snake coiled and sat up with a raised hood. “It looks so calm and peaceful. May be it is a deity,” thought Vishnudutta. He brought a bowl of milk from his house and offered it to the snake.

Next morning, when Vishnudutta came to collect  the bowl, he found a gold coin in it. “I am sure this is a holy snake,” he thought. After that it became a regular practice for him to offer prayers and milk to the snake. And every morning he got a gold coin in the bowl near the mount. This made Vishnudutta a rich man.

Once, while Vishnudutta was away, his son Somadutta had to keep the bowl of milk near the snake. As usual, after some time, there was a gold coin in the bowl near the mount. Somadutta thought. “I guess there is a treasure of gold coins beneath this mount. If I can kill this snake and dig under the mount, I will get all the gold!” With gold on his mind, Somadutta tried to kill the snake. The snake bit Somadutta and managed to escape.

When Vishnudutta returned, his wife told him everything. “I always warned you against greed,” said Vishnudutta to his son. Then he ran towards the holy snake. With folded hands, he asked for forgiveness and offered milk to the holy snake.

But this time the holy snake did not accept it. “I spared your son’s life because of your kindness. You will have to pay for his greed. I shall not help you any more,” said the snake and disappeared.

There was a large forest which was made up of different species of trees. There were mango trees, peach trees, pine trees, teakwood, rosewood and oak trees. All the trees were very beautiful to look at. They were tall and green. Few of them bore wonderful juicy fruits while others bore lovely flowers. There was just one tree among all the beautiful trees which was very ugly. This tree neither had any colorful flowers nor bore any fruits. It had hardly any leaves left on it. Its branches were also very weak. Other trees were proud of their beautiful structure and would often make fun of this tree calling it ugly.

The poor tree regarded itself as an unfortunate tree and always thought, “Why did God make me so ugly? Why didn’t God make me beautiful and healthy like the other trees?”

One day, a woodcutter went to the forest in search of wood. He saw the tree and said, “What an ugly tree it is. Its branches are so thin and the trunk is so crooked. This tree is of no use to me and decided to cut down other straight and healthy trees”

So, the woodcutter cut down all the beautiful trees and took them along. The ugly tree now thought, “God is really great. I used to blame God all the time for making me ugly while there was a great reason behind it. My ugliness in fact
saved me. Whatever God does is for our own good.”

The Creator alone knows what is best for His creation. God alone knows the wisdom behind our pain and suffering. Never question God’s plan as it is always the best.

There was a man who loved his wife very much. The couple had 4 children. He could give her everything he could but the woman never appreciated. Though the man was not rich, he would share all that he had with her. He could buy for her clothes and the only thing his wife could say was that the husband was fulfilling his duty as a Husband.

The man would buy a dress but in reply, the woman would mock at him, because the dress was of low quality. The man would smile at his wife and tell her “one day, I will become rich and I will buy for you all the expensive things you need”. The woman could never make any phone call unless she was requesting anything from her husband and once her request was not granted, all she could do was to quarrel for days, sometimes fight.

One evening, the man was coming from work, he bought 1Kg of meat, happily the poor man expecting to surprise his wife, he reached home found the wife and showed her the package. Then she shouted: “eh! And you call yourself a man? Which husband, apart from you, do you think comes home with just one kilogram, no cooking oil, and no other ingredients? You better leave it, you’re a good-for-nothing husband.” Then she threw the meat in the bush and went back home. The Husband felt low but he never let down his love for her.

One day, the husband felt pain in his left foot…..then a Tumor appeared on the foot, it then emerged growing big and more painful. He went to the hospital after several months of pain and was found with cancer, he was poor to have a better medical care.

Though he was sick he tried much as he could to provide for his family. Two years later the condition worsened and he was put in the special care unit, he was operated and the foot was removed, but unfortunately it was too late, the Virus had affected more parts of the body and at last he called his wife and told him, “Take good care of my children, I feel I can’t live any longer even though I always wanted to be with you, may God help you”. He then breathed his last and died.

The woman, and four children cried, mourned his death and then buried him.Two months later, the wife was crying by her husband’s grave as she said these words:

“My love, you did all the best to me, you treated me well and gave me all you could, but all I could pay you, was endless quarrels and fights. I never realized your importance and your love until when you were gone, and when I’m the one to provide food, clothing, education and many others. I remember when I threw your one Kilogram of meat to the bush, but now i have nowhere to get even a Half a Kilo. They say ‘The Good Die Young’ that’s why you died when you were still young. A husband whom I could mock at but you only smiled at me. The husband who could care and had unending love.

I know you are no more in this world but still I ask you to forgive me for not appreciating all you did to me, when you were alive.

We are all missing your presence and your youngest daughter is always crying asking when you’ll be back. But you will never leave our hearts until we Join you.”

Moral:
* Always appreciate what you are given, whether small or big.
* Love is not all about how much we have, but its all about how we share the little we have.

Once a little girl went to a shop with her mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed her a jar full of cookies and said, "Dear child.You can take some cookies''.

But the child didn't take.The shop keeper was surprised.

Such a small child but why is  she not taking the cookies from the jar?.  Again he said take the cookies. Now the mother also heard this and said,  "Take the cookies dear''. yet she didn't take it.

The shop keeper, seeing the child not taking the cookies,himself took the cookies and gave them to the child. The child was ecstatic to have been given so many delicious cookies. While returning home the mother asked the child, ''Why didn't you take the cookies,when the shop keeper told you to take?.

Can you guess the response?.

The child replied, ''Mom! my hands are very small and if i take the cookies i can only take a few but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands how many cookies I got!''.


Moral: When we take we may get little but when God gives,he provides us beyond expectation more than what we can hold.

Oh It took so long to finish typing this story.It is so long. Thanks to Lj-cut i am able to post it without spamming your friends entries totally with my story. And this is the first time I am using that too. Now to the story...

There is a story many years ago of an elementary teacher )

There was once a washer man who had a donkey and a dog.One night when the whole world was sleeping,a thief broke into the house,the washer man was fast asleep too but the donkey and dog were awake.The dog decided not to bark since the master did not take good care of him and wanted to teach him a lesson.

The donkey got worried and said to the dog if he doesn't bark,the donkey will have to do something himself.The dog didnot change his mind and the donkey started braying loudly.
Hearing the donkey bray,the thief ran away,the master woke up and started beating the donkey for braying in the middle of the night for no reason.

Now take a new look at the same story..
.
The washer man was a well educated man from a premier management institute.He, had the fundas of looking at the bigger picture and thinking out of the box.He was convinced that there must be some reason for the donkey to bray in the middle of the night.He walked outside a little and did some fact finding,applied a bottom up approach,figured out from the ground realities that there was a thief who broke in and the donkey only wanted to alert him about it.Looking at the donkey's extra initiative and going beyond the call of the duty,he rewarded him with lot of hay and other perks and become his favourite pet.

The dog's life didn't change much,except that now the donkey was more motivated in doing the dog's duties as well.In the annual appraisal the dog managed ''Met Expectations''
Soon the dog realized that the donkey is taking care of his duties and he can enjoy his life sleeping and lazing around.

The donkey was rated as ''Star performer'' .The donkey had to live up to his already high performance standards.Soon he was over burdened with work and always under pressure and is now looking for a new job.

A turtle family decided to go on a picnic.The turtles,being naturally slow about things,took seven years to prepare for their outing.Finally the turtle family left home looking for a suitable place.During the second year of their journey they found a place ideal for them at last!

For about six months they cleaned the area,unpacked the picnic basket,and completed the arrangements.Then they discovered they had forgotten the salt.A picnic without salt would be a disaster,they all agreed.After a lengthy discussion,the youngest turtle was chosen to retrieve the salt from home.Although he was the fastest of the slow moving turtles,the little turtle whined,cried and wobbled in his shell.He agreed to go on one condition.that no one would eat until he returned.The family consented and the little turtle left.

Three years passed and the little turtle had not returned.Five years..six years then on the seventh year of his absence,the oldest turtle could no longer contain his hunger.He announced that he was going to eat and begun to unwrap a sandwich.

At that point the little turtle suddenly popped out from behind a tree shouting,'See! I knew you wouldn't wait.Now i am not going to go get the salt'.

Moral: Some of us waste our time waiting for people to live up to our expectations.We are so concerned about what others are doing that we don't do anything ourselves

    Last week my final results came for my last semester..I passed..So happy..FInally i can graduate from my college..Next is finding a job..I hope i'll get one soon..

    A teenage boy went to his mother and told her about his life and how things were so hard for him.He did not know how he was going to make it and wanted to give up.He was tired of fighting and struggling.It seemed as one problem was solved,a new one arouse.
His mother took him to the kitchen.She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.Soon the pots came to boil.In the first she placed carrots.In the second she placed the eggs and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.She let them sit and boil,without saying a word.

   In about 20 mins she turned off the burners.She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl.She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl..Turning to her son, she asked,'Tell me what you see?'.

  'Carrots,eggs and coffee'.he replied

   His mother brought him closer and asked him to feel the carrots.He did and noticed that they were soft.The mother then asked her son to take an egg and break it.After pulling off the shell,he observed the hard boiled egg.

  Finally,the mother asked the son to sip the coffee.The son smiled as he tasted its rich aroma.

 The son then asked,'What does it mean,mother?'.

 His mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity:boiling water.Each reacted differently.The carrot went in strong,hard and unrelenting.However,after being subjected to the boiling water.It softened and became weak.The egg had been fragile.Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior,but after sitting through the boiling water,its inside became hardened.The ground coffee beans were unique,however.After they were in the boiling water,they had changed the water.

 'Which are you?'.She asked her son.'When adversity knocks on your door,how do you respond?Are you a carrot,an egg or a coffee bean?.

 Which one are we? Are we the carrots that seems strong,but with pain and adversity do we wilt and become soft and lose our strength?.

 Are we the egg that starts with a malleable heart,but changes with the heat?.Did we have fluid spirit,but after a death,a break up,a financial hardship or some other trial.,have we become hardened and stiff?.Does our shell look the same,but on the inside are we bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?.

  Or we are like the coffee bean?. The bean actually changes the hot water,the very circumstance that brings the pain.When the water gets hot,it releases the fragrance and flavor.Are we are like the coffee bean.when things are at their worst,we get better and change the situation around us.When the hour is the darkest and trials are the greatest do we elevate ourselves to another level?.How do we handle adversity?.Are we a carrot,an egg or a coffee bean?.

 May we have enough happiness to make us sweet,enough trials to make us strong,enough sorrow to keep us human and enough hope to make us happy.

 Moral:
            The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything,they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past,we can't go forward in life until we let go of our past failures and heartaches.When we were born, we were crying and everyone around us was smilling..We need to live our life so at the end,we are the one who is smilling and everyone around is crying.

      May be we all be the coffee!!!!!!!!!

It's been more than a month since i update the livejournal..I was busy with my project final viva and my sister's wedding..Now i am free so i thought of posting a story..

   A water bearer in india had 2 large pots,each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck.One of the pots had a crack in it,and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master's house,the cracked pot arrived only half full.

  For a full two years this went on daily,with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his master's house.Of course,the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments,perfect to the end for which it was made.But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection,and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure,it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream.

"I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologise to you."
''Why? asked the bearer.''What are you ashamed of?.''
''I have been able,for these past two years,to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master's house.Because of my flaws,you have to do all of this work,and you don't get full value from your efforts,'' the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot,and in his compassion he said,''As we return to the master's house,I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.''
Indeed,as they went up the hill,the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path,and this cheered it some.But at the end of the trail,it still felt bad because it had leaked out half of its load,and so again it apologised to the bearer for its failure.

The bearer said to the pot,''Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path,but not on the other pot's side?.That's because i have always known about your flaw,and I took advantage of it.I planted flower seeds on your side of the path,and everyday while we walk back from the stream you've watered them.

For two years i have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to  decorate my master's table.Without you being just the way you are,he would not have this beauty to grace his house.''

Moral: Each of us has our own unique flaws.We're all cracked pots,But if rightly utilized our flaws can become our greatest assets.

Moral story

          Three friends decided to go to china for vacation. SInce they were new to the place they had to stay in a hotel. And their room ended up being on the 60th floor. The policy of the hotel was that at midnight the elevators were shut down. The next day,the friends rented a car and explored the city.

         They enjoyed themselves and arrived at the hotel past midnight. The elevators were shut down. There was no other way to get to their room but to take the stairs all the way to the 60th floor.

         One friend said: 'For the first 20 floors i will tell the jokes to keep us going. Then another could say wise stories for the next 20 floors.Then we will cover teh final 20 floors with sad stories'. So he started with jokes.With laughs and joy,they reached the 20th floor. Another friend started saying stories full of wisdom.They learned a lot while reaching the 40th floor.

        Now it was time for sad stories. So, the third friend started:'My first sad story is that I left the key for the room in the car'

Moral:
         This story resembles our life cycle. For the first 20 years, we spend time in joking and enjoying whatever is out there. Then,at 20, we go into the work force, get married,have kids and this is the time when we use our wisdom. Then,if we reach 40, we see the white hair and begin to realize that life is coming to an end and I need to prepare for the hereafter.

         Sadly,many have left the keys behind. It's better that we start life in the very beginning by remembering death rather than preparing for it at the end

A guy comes up to the border of the country on his motor bike.He has 3 large sacks on his bike.The official at the border crossing stop him and asks,''What is in the sacks?''

"Sand" ,answered the guy

The guard says,""We'll just see about that, Get off the bike''

The guard takes the sacks and rips them apart,he empties them out and finds nothing in them but sand.He detains the guy overnight and has the sand analyzed,only to discover that there is nothing but pure sand in the bags.The guard releases the guy and puts the sand into new bag,lifts them onto the man's shoulders and let him cross the border.

A week later, the same thing happens.The border offcial asks,''What have you got?''

''Sand'',says the guy

The official does his thorough examination and discovers that the sacks contain nothing but sand.He gives the sand back to the guy and the guy crosses the border on his motor bike.

This sequence of events repeats everyday for 3 years.Then one day the guy doesn't show up.The border official meets up  with him in a restaurant in the city.

''Hey,Buddy'',the official says,''I know you are smuggling something.It's driving me crazy.It's all I think about.I can't sleep.Just between you and me.What are you smuggling?"'

"Bikes'',the guy says!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
