Nail in Tree

Sunday, 19 January 2014

Long time ago, there lived a boy in a village. He used to get angry for every little thing. In anger, he used to shout at other people for almost no reason. Disappointed with this attitude, his father called him one day and gave him a bag full of nails. Then he said to his son, "Whenever you get angry at anything, just take one nail out of this bag and pierce it in the trunk of the tree outside our home."

The Leaf of a Rose Tree

Sunday, 5 January 2014

In a forest, there was a pond. Near the pond, there was a garden having different varieties of plants and trees. Tourists from various places used to visit the garden. They used to praise the garden for its beauty. A leaf on one of the rose trees daily used to see the tourists praising the beauty of roses on the tree. He thought that maybe some tourist would praise him also. Many days passed, but the tourists only used to praise the beauty of flowers. When nobody praised the leaf even after so many days, he started feeling himself in destitution. Many thoughts started coming all over his mind, "All these people are praising the roses and all other flowers but none of them ever appreciated me. Maybe my life is useless. I am nothing in front of these beautiful flowers...." Thinking all these things, he started remaining extremely sad.
