Inspiring Story :The wooden bowl...

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in- law, 
and a four-year old grandson. The old man's hands trembled, 
his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. 

The family ate together nightly at the dinner table. But the 
elderly grandfather' s shaky hands and failing sight made eating rather difficult.
 Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.

When he grasped the glass often milk spilled on the tablecloth. 
The son and daughter-in- law became irritated with the mess. 
"We must do something about grandfather, " said the son. 

I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor. 
So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, 
grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner 
at the dinner table. Since grandfather had broken a dish or two, 
his food was served in a wooden bowl. 

Sometimes when the family glanced in grandfather' s direction, 
he had a tear in his eye as he ate alone. Still, the only words 
the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork 
or spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing 
with wood scraps on the floor. 

He asked the child sweetly, "What are you making?" Just as sweetly, 
the boy responded,
"Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and mama to eat your food 
from when I grow up."
The four-year-old smiled and went back to work. 
The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. 

Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, 
both knew what must be done. 
That evening the husband took grandfather' s hand and gently led him 
back to the family table.

For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. 
And for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer 
when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled. 

Children are remarkably perceptive. Their eyes ever observe, 
their ears ever listen, and their minds ever process the messages they absorb. 
If they see us patiently provide a happy home atmosphere for family members, 
they will imitate that attitude for the rest of their lives. 

Lesson from the Story:

The wise parent realizes that every day that building blocks 
are being laid for the child's future.

Beautiful Inspiring Story: Never Give Up...

Amir Taimur, was someone who was so firm and unfaltering 
in every predicament, that he did not cower from any misfortune. 
When the reason for this was sought from him, he said:

"Once, having fled from my enemies and seeking refuge in the ruins
 of a worn down and dilapidated building,

I was reflecting over my future when my eyes suddenly fell upon 
a small and weak Ant, carrying a grain bigger than itself, 
endeavoring to climb to the top of a wall.

"Looking carefully and counting accurately, I found that 
the grain had dropped from its clutches sixty seven times 
before the Ant finally managed to make it to the top of 
the wall with it. The spectacle of this effort on 
the part of the Ant infused within me strength of 
such great magnitude that I am never able to forget it."

"I said to myself: O' Taimur! You are by no means inferior to an Ant. 
Arise and get back to work. I got up and gathered my resolve till 
I eventually came to acquire the courage that I now possess."

Moral of the Story: Falling down is not defeat...
defeat is when you refuse to get up...

Inspiring Story that has changed my Life..

Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in 
a timber merchant,and he got it. The pay was really good 
and so were the work conditions.

For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. 
His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he 
was supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees

"Congratulations," the boss said. "Go on that way!" Very motivated 
for the boss' words, the woodcutter try harder the next day, 
but he only could bring 15 trees. 

The third day he try even harder, but he only could bring 10 trees. 
Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.

"I must be losing my strength", the woodcutter thought. 
He went to the boss and apologized, 
saying that he could not understand what was going on.

"When was the last time you sharpened your axe?" 
the boss asked. "Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. 
I have been very busy trying to cut trees...

Lesson from the Inspiring Story:

I think you have already got the point from the above story. 
Many Job seekers do the same mistake. Its not at all a hard thing 
to find various job requirements on internet but to get a job 
what exactly you have to do is Sharpening your axe. 
What does that mean? If you are a fresher
 instead of keep on applying for jobs first focus & improve your skills 
on Aptitude, Reasoning, GD, HR & puzzles etc.

If you are really good at above topics you need not worry about 
getting a good job.My dear friends, today many people are rich 
in this world because they are not rich in money from childhood 
but they are rich in Attitude. 
Attitude, that creates an altitude in your life.

It doesn't matter how much % you got in your previous degree or 
in which college you studied. It's all about focusing on your weaknesses 
by introspecting yourself. Turn your weaknesses into strengths. 
Winners don't do different things but they do things differently.

Finally to make a difference, to reach your goal what all we need is 
Burning Desire, Determination, Dedication, Positive attitude & commitment .

Inspiring Story :Last 3 Wishes of King Alexander..

There is very instructive incident involving the life of Alexander,
 the Greek king.Alexander, after conquering many kingdoms, was returning home.
On the way, he fell ill and it took him to his death bed. 
With death staring him in his face, Alexander realized how his conquests, 
his great army, his sharp sword and all his wealth were of no consequence.

He now longed to reach home to see his mother's face and bid her his last adieu. 
But, he had to accept the fact that his sinking health would not permit Him 
to reach his distant homeland. So,

The mighty conqueror lay prostrate and pale, helplessly waiting to breathe his last. 
He called his generals and said, "I will depart from this world soon,

I have three wishes, please carry them out without fail." With tears flowing down .
Their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their king's last wishes.

"My first desire is that," said Alexander, 
"My physicians alone must carry my coffin." After a pause, he continued, 
"Secondly, I desire that when my coffin is being carried to the grave, 
the path leading to the graveyard be strewn with gold, silver and precious stones 
which I have collected in my treasury.

"The king felt exhausted after saying this. He took a minute's rest and continued. 
"My third and last wish is that both my hands be kept dangling out of my coffin.
"The people who had gathered there wondered at the king's strange wishes. 
But no one dare bring the question to their lips. 
Alexander's favorite general kissed his hand and pressed them to his heart. 
"O king, we assure you that your wishes will all be fulfilled. 
But tell us why do you make such strange wishes?"

At this Alexander took a deep breath and said: 
"I would like the world to know of the three lessons I have just learnt.

Lessons to learn from last 3 wishes of  King Alexander:
I want my physicians to carry my coffin because people should realize 
that no doctor can really cure any body. They are powerless and cannot save 
a person from the clutches of death. So let not people take life for granted.

The second wish of strewing gold, silver and other riches on the way to 
the graveyard is to tell People that not even a fraction of gold will come with me. 
I spent all my life earning riches but cannot take anything with me. 
Let people realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth.

And about my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, 
I wish people to know that I came empty handed into this world 
and empty handed I go out of this world."
With these words, the king closed his eyes. Soon he let death conquer him 
and breathed his last. . . . .

Inspiring Story: A Parable of the Rose ..

A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and 
before it blossomed, He examined it.  He saw the bud that would soon blossom, 
but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought,

"How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with 
so many sharp thorns? "Saddened by this thought, he neglected 
to water the rose, and before it was ready to bloom, it died.

So it is with many people.  Within every soul there is a rose. 
The God like qualities planted in us at birth 
growing amid the thorns of our faults.  
Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns,the defects.  
We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. 

We neglect to water the good within us, 
and eventually it dies. 

We never realize our potential.
Some people do not see the rose within themselves; 
someone else must show it to them. 

One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is
to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within others.

Lesson from the Inspirational Story:

This is the characteristic of love---to look at a person and 
know their true faults.  Accepting that person into your life, 
while recognizing the nobility in their soul.  Help them to realize 
that they can overcome their faults.  If we show them the rose, 
they will conquer their thorns.  Only then will they blossom many times over.

Our duty in this world is to help others by showing them their roses 
and not their thorns.  Only then can we achieve the love 
we should feel for each other; only then can we bloom in our own garden.

Beautiful Inspiring Story: Whom To Blame

A Boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. 
They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. 
When the boy was around two years old, 
one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open. 

He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle 
and keep it in the cupboard. 
His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter. 

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle 
fascinated by its colour and drank it all. 
It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. 
When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, 
where he died. The mother was stunned. 
She was terrified how to face her husband. 

When the distraught father came to the hospital 
and saw the dead child he looked at his wife 
and uttered just five words. 


1. What were the five words? 
2. What is the implication of this story? 

Scroll down... 








The husband just said "I am with you Darling" 

The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. 
The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. 
There is no point in finding fault with the mother. 
Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, 
this would not have happened. 

No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. 
What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy 
from the husband. That is what he gave her. 

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, 
there would be much fewer problems in the world. 
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." 
Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiven, selfishness, and fears. 
And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think. 


Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame,
 whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. 
By this way we miss out some warmth in human relationship.

Inspiring Story: Acres of Diamonds...

There was a farmer in Africa who was happy and content. 
He was happy because he was content. He was content because he was happy.
One day a wise man came to him and told him about the glory of diamonds 
and the power that goes along with them. The wise man said, 

"If you had a diamond the size of your thumb, you could have your own city. 
If you had a diamond the size of your fist, you could probably own your own country." 
And then he went away. That night the farmer couldn't sleep. He was unhappy 
and he was discontent. He was unhappy because he was discontent and 
discontent because he was unhappy.

                            The next morning he made arrangements to sell off his farm, 
took care of his family and went in search of diamonds. 
He looked all over Africa and couldn't find any. He looked all through Europe 
and couldn't find any.  When he got to Spain, he was emotionally, 
physically and financially broke. He got so disheartened that 
he threw himself into the Barcelona River and committed suicide.

                            Back home, the person who had bought his farm was watering 
the camels at a stream that ran through the farm. Across the stream, 
the rays of the morning sun hit a stone and made it sparkle like a rainbow. 
He thought it would look good on the mantle piece. He picked up 
the stone and put it in the living room.

That afternoon the wise man came and saw the stone sparkling. 
He asked, "Is Hafiz back?" The new owner said, "No, why do you ask?" 
The wise man said, "Because that is a diamond. I recognize one when I see one." 
The man said, no, that's just a stone I picked up from the stream. Come, I'll show you.

There are many more." They went and picked some samples and sent them 
for analysis. Sure enough, the stones were diamonds. They found that 
the farm was indeed covered with acres and acres of diamonds.*

What is the moral of this story? There are five morals:

1. When our attitude is right, we realize that we are all walking on acres 
and acres of diamonds. Opportunity is always under our feet. 
We don't have to go anywhere. All we need to do is recognize it.

2. The grass on the other side always looks greener.

3. While we are dyeing the grass on the other side, there are others 
who are dyeing the grass on our side. They would be happy to trade places with us.

4. When people don't know how to recognize opportunity, 
they complain of noise when it knocks.

5. The same opportunity never knocks twice. The next one may be 
better or worse, but it is never the same one.
