    *The Corn Story*

    *There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning CORN. Each
    year he entered his CORN in the state fair where it won honour and prizes.
    *
    Once a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learnt something interesting
    about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his
    seed corn with his neighbours'.
    "How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when
    they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter
    asked.

    "Why sir, "said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from
    the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow
    inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will
    steadily
    degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my
    neighbours grow good corn."

    The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn
    cannot improve unless his neighbour's corn also improves. So it is in the
    other dimensions! Those who choose to be at harmony must help their
    neighbours and colleagues to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must
    help others to live well.

    *Success does not happen in isolation. It is very often a participative and
    collective process. *

    * *

    *If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, then you
    and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an
    idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas*

    *- G.B Shaw*

    Never search happiness in others which will make you to feel ALONE.
    But search it in yourself, you will feel happy even you are left ALONE.
