  • Great inspiring stories Tanu.
    Keep it up. God's Positive Answers is wonderful. We might be weak, But not Thy. Nothing is impossible for him. It is we who fear to ask to grant our wish, because most of the times we know, What we are asking might be wrong in his eyes or against Law of nature/Karma, But only our Materialistic Desire.
    May Sai Bless You!

    कहानी - "आगे चलो"

  • आगे चलो

    एक गाँव में एक लकड़हारा अपने परिवार के साथ रहता था. वह दिन-रात परिश्रम करता, किन्तु फिर भी अभावो से घिरा रहता. उसकी आर्थिक दशा को एक महात्मा देखते रहते. एक दिन महात्मा ने उससे कहा- बच्चा! आगे चलो- आगे चलो- और आगे चलो....
    लकड़हारा जहाँ लकडिया कटता था, उस स्थान से थोडा आगे बढ़ गया. उसे वहां चन्दन का एक वन दिखाई दिया. वह चन्दन की लकडिया काटकर बेचने लगा. उसे चन्दन की लकडियों के खूब उचे दाम मिले.
    एक दिन उसे फिर वही महात्मा मिले. उन्होंने लकड़हारे को समझाया- बच्चा! जीवन में एक ही स्थान पर मत रुको.  तालाब के जल के सामान रुक गए तो सड़ जायोगे. इसलिए चलते रहो, बढ़ते रहो.
    लकड़हारा चन्दन वन से और आगे गया तो उसे ताम्बे की खान मिली. उस खान से उसने बहुत सा धन कमाया. आगे चलकर उसे चाँदी की खान मिली और वह मालामाल हो गया.
    पुनः महात्मा ने उसे समझाया- यही मत रुकना. जैसे आगे बढ़ते-बढ़ते तुमने धन- वैभव पाया है, वैसे ही धर्म के राज्य में होता है.
    अब  लकड़हारा और आगे बढा. परिणामस्वरूप उसे क्रमश सोने व् हीरे की खाने मिली और वह अति संपन्न हो गया. अब उसके जीवन में आभाव न था और वह प्रसन्न था.
    कथा का सार यह है की जीवन चलने का नाम है. निरंतर चलते रहने से ही प्रगति होगी. एक जगह रुक जाने से प्रगति तो रुकेगी ही, संतोष और शांति भी प्राप्त नहीं होगी, क्यूंकि कर्म की निरंतरता और नवीनता से ही उनकी उपलब्धि संभव है. रुक जाना जड़ता, अवसाद और विकासहीनता का जनक है जबकि आगे बढ़ना चेतना, प्रसन्नता और विकास का सृजन करना है.

  • Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind
    of scared so he asked his little daughter, "Sweetheart, please hold my
    hand so that you don't fall into the river."

    The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand."

    "What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father.

    "There's a big difference," replied the little girl. "If I hold your hand
    and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go.
    But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you
    will never let my hand go."


    In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its
    bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than
    expecting them to hold yours...

  • Selfless Love

    My wife called, "How long will you be poring over that newspaper? Will you come here and make your darling daughter eat her food?"

    I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. My only daughter, Sindu, looked frightened. Tears were welling up in her eyes. In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with Curd Rice.

    Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her age. She has just turned eight. She particularly detested Curd Rice. My mother and my wife are orthodox, and believe firmly in the 'cooling effects' of Curd Rice! I cleared my throat, and picked up the bowl.

    "Sindu, darling, why don't you take a few mouthfuls of this Curd Rice? Just for Dad's sake, dear? And, if you don't, your Mom will shout at me."

    I could sense my wife's scowl behind my back. Sindu softened a bit, and wiped her tears with the back of her hands.

    "OK, Dad. I will eat - not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this. But, you should…" Sindu hesitated, "Dad, if I eat this entire curd Rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?"

    Oh sure, darling'.

    "Promise?"

    "Promise."

    I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine and clinched the deal.

    "Ask Mom also to give a similar promise", my daughter insisted.

    My wife slapped her hand on Sindu's, muttering, "Promise", without any emotion.

    Now I became a bit anxious.

    "Sindu dear, you shouldn't insist on getting a computer or any such expensive items. Dad does not have that kind of money right now. OK?"

    "No, Dad. I do not want anything expensive."

    Slowly and painfully, she finished eating the whole quantity. I was silently angry with my wife and my mother for forcing my child to eat something that she detested.

    After the ordeal was through, Sindu came to me with her eyes wide with expectation. All our attention was on her.

    "Dad, I want to have my hair shaved off, this Sunday!' was her demand.

    "Atrocious!" shouted my wife, "A girl child having her hair shaved off? Impossible!"

    "Never in our family!" my mother rasped. "She has been watching too much television. Our culture is getting totally spoiled with these TV programs!"

    "Sindu darling, why don't you ask for something else? We will be sad seeing you with a clean-shaven head."

    "No, Dad. I do not want anything else", Sindu said with finality.

    "Please, Sindu, why don't you try to understand our feelings?" I tried to plead with her.

    "Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat that Curd Rice." Sindu was in tears. "And you promised to grant me whatever I ask for. Now, you are going back on your words. Was it not you who told me the story of King Harishchandra, and its moral that we should honor our promises no matter what?"

    It was time for me to call the shots. "Our promise must be kept."

    "Are you out your mind?" chorused my mother and wife.

    "No. If we go back on our promises, she will never learn to honor her own. Sindu, your wish will be fulfilled."

    With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a round-face, and her eyes looked big and beautiful. On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. It was a sight to watch my hairless Sindu walking towards her classroom. She turned around and waved. I waved back with a smile.

    Just then, a boy alighted from a car, and shouted, "Sinduja, please wait for me!"

    What struck me was the hairless head of that boy. Maybe, that is the in-stuff, I thought.

    "Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed!"

    Without introducing herself, a lady got out of the car and continued.

    "That boy who is walking along with your daughter is my son Harish. He is suffering from leukemia." She paused to muffle her sobs. "Harish could not attend school for the whole of the last month. He lost all his hair due to the side effects of the chemotherapy. He refused to come back to school fearing the unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates. Sinduja visited him last week and promised him that she would take care of the teasing issue. But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her lovely hair for the sake of my son! Sir, you and your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your daughter."

    I stood transfixed and then, I wept.

    "My little Angel, you are teaching me how selfless real love is!"

  • GENEROSITY

    Mahatma Gandhi went from city to city, village to village collecting funds for the Charkha Sangh. During one of his tours he addressed a meeting in Orissa. After his speech a poor old woman got up. She was bent with age, her hair was grey and her clothes were in tatters. The volunteers tried to stop her, but she fought her way to the place where Gandhiji was sitting. "I must see him," she insisted and going up to Gandhiji touched his feet. Then from the folds of her sari she brought out a copper coin and placed it at his feet. Gandhiji picked up the copper coin and put it away carefully. The Charkha Sangh funds were under the charge of Jamnalal Bajaj. He asked Gandhiji for the coin but Gandhiji refused. "I keep cheques worth thousands of rupees for the Charkha Sangh," Jamnalal Bajaj said laughingly "yet you won't trust me with a copper coin." "This copper coin is worth much more than those thousands," Gandhiji said. "If a man has several lakhs and he gives away a thousand or two, it doesn't mean much. But this coin was perhaps all that the poor woman possessed. She gave me all she had. That was very generous of her. What a great sacrifice she made. That is why I value this copper coin more than a crore of rupees."

  • Touching life story.....

    A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For
         many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's
         showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told
    him that was all he wanted.

         As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited
         signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the
    morning  of his graduation his father called him into his private
      study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine
    son, and  told him how much he loved him. He handed his son
    a beautiful   wrapped gift box.

         Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man
         opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily,
    he raised his voice at his father and said, "With all your money you
    give  me  a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy
    book.

         Many years passed and the young man was very successful in
    business.
         He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his
         father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He
    had   not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make
         arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had
         passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He
    needed   to come home immediately and take care things.
    When he arrived at  his father's house, sudden sadness and
    regret filled his heart.

         He began to search his father's important papers and
         saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With
    tears,  he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he
    read those   words, a car key dropped from an envelope
    taped behind the Bible.
    It  had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the
    sports  car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation,
         and the words...PAID IN FULL.

         How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not
         packaged as we expected?

  • DON'T WE ALL


    I was parked in front of the mall wiping off my car. I had just come
    from the car wash and was waiting for my wife to get out of work.
    Coming my way from across the parking lot was what society would
    consider a bum.
    From the looks of him, he had no car, no home, no clean clothes, and no
    money. There are times when you feel generous but there are other times
    that you just don't want to be bothered. This was one of those "don't
    want to be bothered times."
    "I hope he doesn't ask me for any money," I thought.
    He didn't.
    He came and sat on the curb in front of the bus stop but he didn't look
    like he could have enough money to even ride the bus.
    After a few minutes he spoke.
    "That's a very pretty car," he said.
    He was ragged but he had an air of dignity around him. His scraggly
    blond beard keep more than his face warm.
    I said, "thanks," and continued wiping off my car.


    He sat there quietly as I worked. The expected plea for money never
    came.
    As the silence between us widened something inside said, "ask him if
    he needs any help." I was sure that he would say "yes" but I held true
    to the inner voice.
    "Do you need any help?" I asked.
    He answered in three simple but profound words that I shall never forget.
    We often look for wisdom in great men and women. We expect it from
    those of higher learning and accomplishments.

     I expected nothing but an
    outstretched grimy hand. He spoke the three words that shook me.
    "Don't we all?" he said.

    I was feeling high and mighty, successful and important, above a bum
    in the street, until those three words hit me like a twelve gauge
    shotgun.
    Don't we all?
    I needed help. Maybe not for bus fare or a place to sleep, but I
    needed help. I reached in my wallet and gave him not only enough for bus
    fare, but enough to get a warm meal and shelter for the day. Those
    three little words still ring true. No matter how much you have, no matter
    how much you have accomplished, you need help too. No matter how little you
    have, no matter how loaded you are with problems, even without money or
    a place to sleep, you can give help.

    Even if it's just a compliment, you can give that.
    You never know when you may see someone that appears to have it all.
    They are waiting on you to give them what they don't have. A different
    perspective on life, a glimpse at something beautiful, a respite from
    daily chaos, that only you through a torn world can see.
    Maybe the man was just a homeless stranger wandering the streets. Maybe
    he was more than that.

    Maybe he was sent by a power that is great and
    wise, to minister to a soul too comfortable in themselves.

     Maybe God looked down, called an Angel, dressed him like a bum, then said, "go minister to that man cleaning the car, that man needs help."
    Don't we all?

  • Children loved visiting Gandhiji. A little boy who was there one day, was greatly distressed to see the way Gandhiji was dressed. Such a great man yet he doesn't even wear a shirt, he wondered. "Why don't you wear a kurta, Gandhiji?" the little boy couldn't help asking finally. "Where's the money, son?" Gandhiji asked gently. "I am very poor. I can't afford a kurta." The boy's heart was filled with pity. "My mother sews well", he said. "She makes all my clothes. I'll ask her to sew a Kurta for you." "How many Kurtas can your mother make?" Gandhiji asked.
    "How many do you need?" asked the boy. "One, two, three.... she'll make as many as you want." Gandhiji thought for a moment. Then he said, "But I am not alone, son. It wouldn't be right for me to be the only one to wear a kurta." "How many Kurtas do you need?" the boy persisted. "I'll ask my mother to make as many as you want. Just tell me how many you need." "I have a very large family, son. I have forty crore brothers and sisters," Gandhiji explained. "Till every one of them has a kurta, how can I wear one? Tell me, can your mother make kurtas for all of them? At this question the boy became very thoughtful. Forty crore brothers and sisters! Gandhiji was right. Till every one of them had a kurta to wear how could he wear one himself? After all the whole nation was Gandhiji's family, and he was the head of that family. He was their friend, their companion. What use would one kurta be to him?

  • After Gandhiji's return from South Africa, a meeting of the Congress was held in Bombay. Kaka Saheb Kalelkar went there to help. One day Kaka Saheb found Gandhiji anxiously searching around his desk. "What's the matter? What are you looking for?" Kaka Saheb asked. "I've lost my pencil," Gandhiji answered. "It was only so big."
    Kaka Saheb was upset to see Gandhiji wasting time and worrying about a little pencil. He took out his pencil and offered it to him. "No, no, I want my own little pencil," Gandhiji insisted like a stubborn child.
    "Well, use it for the time being," said Kaka Saheb. "I'll find your pencil later. Don't waste time looking for it now."
    "You don't understand. That little pencil is very precious to me," Gandhiji insisted. "Natesan's little son gave it to me in Madras. He gave it with so much love and affection. I cannot bear to lose it." Kaka Saheb didn't argue any more. He joined Gandhiji in the search. At last they found it-a tiny piece, barely two inches long. But Gandhiji was delighted to get it back. To him it was no ordinary pencil. It was the token of a child's love and to Gandhiji a child's love was very precious.

  • This incident occurred in Noakhali. After the Hindu-Muslim riots Gandhiji toured the area on foot to reassure and comfort the people. He would set off from a village soon after dawn and arrive at the next village after sunset. On arrival he would first attend to his work then he would take a bath. Gandhiji used a rough stone to clean his feet. Miraben had given this stone to him many years ago and Gandhiji had kept it carefully ever since. He took it with him everywhere. One evening after they had arrived at a village and Manu was getting Gandhiji's bath ready, she noticed that the stone was missing. She looked everywhere but could not find it. She told Gandhiji that the stone was lost and added, "It must have been left behind at the weaver's where we stayed yesterday. What should I do now?" Gandhiji thought for a moment. Then he said, "Go and fetch the stone. If you suffer once, you'll not forget another time." "Can I take someone with me?" Manu asked. "Why?" questioned Gandhiji. Manu was silent. She did not want to admit that she was frightened to go alone. The road to the village lay through forests of betelnut and coconut and it was easy to lose one's way. Besides, Manu was barely sixteen years old and she had never gone anywhere alone. But she could not think of an answer. So Manu took the path they had taken earlier in the day. Carefully following the old footprints she managed to reach the village and find the weaver's house. The old woman who lived there recognised her and welcomed her warmly. Tired and rather irritated Manu told her why she had come. But how was the old woman to have known that that bit of stone was so valuable? She had thrown it away with the rubbish. They both began to search for it. At last much to Manu's joy they found it. Many had left the house at 7.30 in the morning. By the time she returned it was past one in the afternoon. She had walked nearly fifteen miles. Worn out, hungry and irritated she went straight to Gandhiji and put the stone in the lap. Then she burst into tears. "This stone was a real test for you," Gandhiji told her gently. "Do you know that this stone has been with me for the last twenty-five years. It has gone with me everywhere, from jails to mansions. I can easily get another stone like it, but I wanted you to learn that it is bad to be careless." "I've never prayed as hard as I did today," said Manu. "I want to make women brave and fearless", Gandhiji said. "Today not only you but I too learnt a lesson." Manu did not say anything but she must have thought Gandhiji's methods were very unusual.

  • Mohan was very shy. As soon as the school bell rang, he collected his books and hurried home. Other boys chatted and stopped on the way; some to play, others to eat, but Mohan always went straight home. He was afraid that the boys might stop him and make fun of him. One day, the Inspector of Schools, Mr Giles, came to Mohan's school. He read out five English words to the class and asked the boys to write them down. Mohan wrote four words correctly, but he could not spell the fifth word `Kettle'. Seeing Mohan's hesitation, the teacher made a sign behind the Inspector's back that he should copy the word from his neighbour's slate. But Mohan ignored his signs. The other boys wrote all the five words correctly; Mohan wrote only four. After the Inspector left, the teacher scolded him. "I told you to copy from your neighbour," he said angrily. "Couldn't you even do that correctly?" Every one laughed. As he went home that evening, Mohan was not unhappy. He knew he had done the right thing. What made him sad was that his teacher should have asked him to cheat.

  • The night was very dark and Mohan was frightened. He had always been afraid of ghosts. Whenever he was alone in the dark, he was afraid that a ghost lurking in some dark corner would suddenly spring on him. And tonight it was so dark that one could barely see one's own hand. Mohan had to go from one room to another. As he stepped out of the room, his feet seemed to turn to lead and his heart began to beat like a drum. Rambha, their old maidservant was standing by the door. "What's the matter, son?" she asked with a laugh.

    "I am frightened, Dai," Mohan answered.
    "Frightened, child! Frightened of what?"
    "See how dark it is! I'm afraid of ghosts!" Mohan whispered in a terrified voice. Rambha patted his head affectionately and said, "Whoever heard of anyone being afraid of dark! Listen to me: Think of Rama and no ghost will dare come near you. No one will touch a hair of your head. Rama will protect you." Rambha's words gave Mohan courage. Repeating the name of Rama, he left the room. And from that day, Mohan was never lonely or afraid. He believed that as long as Rama was with him, he was safe from the danger. This faith gave Gandhiji strength throughout his life, and even when he died the name of Rama was on his lips.
