    The Japanese have a great liking for fresh fish.
    But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades.
    So, to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.
    The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring back the fish.
    The longer it took them to bring back the fish, the stale they grew.
    The fish were not fresh and the Japanese did not like the taste.
    To solve this problem, fishing companies installed the freezers on their boats.
    They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea.
    Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer.
    However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish.
    And they did not like the taste of frozen fish.
    The frozen fish brought a lower price.
    So, fishing companies installed fish tanks.
    They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin.
    After a little hashing around, fishes stopped moving.
    They were tired and dull, but alive.
    Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference.
    Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste.
    The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish.
    The fishing industry faced an impending crisis!
    But today, it has got over that crisis and has emerged as one of the most important trades in that country!
    How did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem?
    How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan ?
    To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks.
    But now they add a small shark to each tank.
    The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state.
    The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move.
    And they survive and arrive in a healthy state!
    They command a higher price and are most sought-after.
    The challenge they face keeps them fresh!
    Humans are no different.
    L. Ron Hubbard observed in the early 1950's: "Man thrives, oddly enough, only in the presence of a challenging environment."
    George Bernard Shaw said: " Satisfaction is death!"
    If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy. Your challenges keep you energized.
    They keep you alive!

    Put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go!*__

    MORAL: If you look healthier, younger and energetic, then definitely there is a shark in your tank. Covid 19 is challenge encounter results in robust health.

    Whether the presence of covid 19 has made us strong and healthier-is a million dollar question!There should be some other shark of some other quality to make us thrive better.What is it and where is it?

    Thanks madam sister,
    Those who survived the COVID time till now are deemed to be strong and robust because they learnt how to dodge this shark.
    A more powerful virulent virus is likely to rule the world for 108 days from Xmas. This is according to Abinngyan the multilingual wonder boy.
