To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness...
Friday, December 15, 2006
A kindergarten teacher has decided to let her class play a game. The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates.
So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5 potatoes. The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go for 1 week.
Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. Besides, those having 5 potatoes also had to carry heavier bags. After 1 week, the children were relieved because the game had finally ended.
The teacher asked: "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for 1 week?" The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.
Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime???

Moral of the story:
Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry sins for a lifetime. Forgiving others is the best attitude to take! Life is to be fortified by many friendships.
To love & to be loved is the greatest happiness. Fate determines who comes into our lives. The heart determines who stays………………….

A nice story that I have come across in recent times.... Life is too short, Try to make it as sweet as possible... :-)... Keep smiling... Life will smile upon you...

Music Playing -
Maine dil se kaha, dhoond laana khushi
Nasamajh laya gum, to yeh gum hi sahi

Bechaara kahan jaanta tha
Khalish hai yeh kya khala hai
Shehar bhar ki khushi se
Yeh dard mera bhala hai
Jashna yeh raaz na aaye
Mazaa toh bas gam main aaya hai...
That is one lovely song from Rog.....

    Good story Rajitha.

    On a lighter note (quoting Oscar Wilde): Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much ;-)

    Forgiveness is almost a selfish act because of its immense benefits to the one who forgives.
    Lawana Blackwell,

    The hatred you're carrying is a live coal in your heart - far more damaging to yourself than to them.
    Lawana Blackwell,


    The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
    Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
