    A LOVELY MESSAGE :


    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 color
    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.





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

    ANSWER :




    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,unforgiv eness, selfishness, and fears. And
    you will find things are actually not as difficult as you
    think.




    MORAL OF THE STORY
    This story is really worth reading. ..... 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 something.

    What do you think.....

    Hi,
    Nice and unbelievable story. I cannot believe
    the reaction of the husband eventhough he is great.
    In real life situations we should take control of our
    emotions.Must use head rather than heart.

    Thanks Vidhyalakshmi.
    At the time of distress or joy, using the head in place of heart work wonders!

    Thanks Madhu!

    Hey, thats a classic ! Sure, blame games are no solutions, they cannot undo the done. Wish there were more human beings of that sort around.

    hello srini

    have read this before
    whether it was imagined
    or true..
    there sure is a message
    for me and you...
    in times of stress
    strain or imagination
    with your heart and head
    say
    something soothing
    and leave aside
    what you cant undo

    sathya
