ALL IS WELL

Unable to bear his poverty, a priest went to the temple and begged the deity there for a solution. That night the deity left a golden pot in the courtyard of the priest's house. The priest found the golden pot with some water in it. He threw the water out and went to the market where he sold the pot to a merchant. With the money he received, he repaid all his debts and returned home a rich man laden with gifts for his family.

Soon after, his family fought over the vast wealth, everyone from his wife to his children to his parents and his siblings demanding their share.

Unable to bear the mental agony, the priest went back to the temple and complained to the deity. "You have added to my problem not solved it with the golden pot". And deity said, "Golden pot? What golden pot? I gave you the elixir of contentment( A divine Drink for making all is well), enough for you and your family. It happened to be contained in a golden pot. Did you not drink it?"

Every job is a golden container full of water. The pot is the salary that pays our bills and the designation that p leases our desire to feel significant. But in each job is potentially the opportunity to grow intellectually and emotionally. Each job contains the seed of learning that can germinate in our mind, if we allow it to. Unfortunately, jobs are seen more in economic terms (the pot) than in learning terms (the water).

What Indian advertisements taught me.??? 

1. Kareena has dandruff problem, Katrina has dry hair problem, Shilpa has hairfall problem and Priyanka has chip-chip.

2. If you've a hot wife, make sure your neighbor doesn't use a deodorant in your absence.

3. Your complexion is more important than your qualifications.

4. If there is no salt in your kitchen you can use Toothpaste.

5. Every second oral care brand is No. 1 and recommended by every dentist in India!!!

6. If your daughter is not Ready to Get married, take her to a jewelry/textile shop.

7. Only reason why men use deodorant is to get girls.

8. Most colas cure all kinds of phobias. You will be close to a superman, if you drink these regularly!!

9. All superstars are so poor that they prefer to risk life for a cool drink than to purchase it for Rs:10

10. The special effects in shampoo ads are greater than special effects in Avatar.

11. Fruit content in shampoo and soap is more than fruit content in 99% of juices.

12. Amul has better satirical cartoonists than people who make better milk products.

13. Most people buy vehicles to travel in bad roads but complain about roads in India.

14. You can't eat Dairy Milk Silk without spreading it all over you face.

15. Nobody uses motorbikes for commuting, its only to pick up girls.

16. All soaps kill 99.9% of germs. 

17. People believe that Bacardi makes music CD's and Directors special/Kingfisher make mineral water.

18. The only time mothers and daughters talk to each other, it's usually about hair oil.

19. No matter what kind of expert one is, he'll always wear a white laboratory coat.

And, finally a new word...........

14 short stories worth reading 

14 short stories worth reading, feeling and forwarding to all those dear to you..
 
1. Fall and Rise
 
Today, when I slipped on the wet tile floor a boy in a wheelchair caught me before I slammed my head on the ground.  He said, “Believe it or not, that’s almost exactly how I injured my back 3 years ago .
 
2. A father's advice
 
Today, my father told me, “Just go for it and give it a try!  You don’t have to be a professional to build a successful product.  Amateurs started Google and Apple.  Professionals built the Titanic
 
3. The power of uniqueness.
 
Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his 70’s – what his top 3 tips are for success.  He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.
 
4. Looking Back
 
Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class.  When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.
 
5. Try and U shall know
 
I am blind by birth. When I was 8 years old, I wanted to play baseball. I asked my father- "Dad, can I play baseball?" He said "You'll never know until you try." When I was a teenager, I asked him, - "Dad Can I become a surgeon?". He replied "Son, you'll never know until you try." Today I am a Surgeon, just because I tried!
 
6. GOODNESS GRATITUDE
 
Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug.  When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her.  She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”
 
7. LOVE CONQUERS PAIN
 
Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying.  And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.
 
8. A DOOR CLOSES TO OPEN ANOTHER
 
Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job.  I start tomorrow.
 
9. LOOKING BACK
 
Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”
 
10. AFFECTION
 
Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed.  About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.
 
11. INNOCENCE
 
Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, “Why?” She replied, “So you can help me save the planet.”  I chuckled again and asked, “And why do you want to save the planet?” “Because that’s where I keep all my stuff,” she said.
 
12. JOY
 
Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.
 
13. KINDNESS
 
Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me.  He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”.
 
14. SHARING
 
Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe.  He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy.  Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating.  The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”
 
Cheers to life

New Definitions; Funny ;) 

It seems that a lot of our old definitions for things are just that: Old.
So a group of scientists (and comedians) have decided to create a new list of definitions for the new year!

Here are some of the new definitions we loved the most:

School: An institute where the child goes to play while the parent goes to pay.

Life Insurance: A contract that leaves you poor while you live so you can die rich.

Nurse: A woman that wakes you up in the middle of the night to give you sleeping pills.

Tears: The hydrolic force that women use to defeat men.

Confrence: One man's confusion multiplied by the number of people there.

Father: The banker nature gave children.

Politician: Whoever shakes your hand before elections and your wallet after elections.

Doctor: A person who kills your disease with pills and you with bills. 

Compromise: The art of dividing the cake in a way that makes everyone believe they got the largest piece.

Mosquito: The only insect that makes you prefer flies.

Etc: The word that makes people think you are smarter than you really are.

Atom Bomb: The invention to end all other inventions.

Yawn: The only time married men are allowed to open their mouth.

Philosopher: A masochistic fool who will be considered a genius once dead. 
 
An adult: A person who has stopped growing from either end and now just grows in the middle.

Diplomat: A person who tells you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.

Chicken: The only animal we eat before it's born as well as after it's dead.

Fancy restaurant: The only restaurant that serves you cold soup on purpose.

Puddle: A small body of water that attracts other small bodies wearing dry shoes.
