The Ant and the grasshoper

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.


The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.


Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.


*Indian Version:**


The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.


The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.


Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.


NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next

to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.


The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?


Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.*


Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter.


Mayawati states this as `injustice' done on Minorities.


Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.


The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance) .


Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for 'Bengal Bandh' in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.


CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers.


Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.


Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the winter.


Arjun Singh makes 'Special Reservation ' for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services.


The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, it's home is confiscated by the Government and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.


Arundhati Roy calls it 'A Triumph of Justice'.


Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice '.


CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden '


Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly. **


Many years later....**


The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley, 100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India ,




As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the grasshoppers, India is still a developing country.

Be the Coffee

You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again after reading this …


Go ahead and read this interesting fact .. its  long narration but a real eye opener for all of us who have

Gone thru failures, lost some one we loved , broke up with someone we loved , deceived by someone

Whom we trusted our lives and future  with  and the list  can go on and on and on ….


"A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and

how things were so hard for her She did not know how she was going to

make it and wanted to give up She was tired of fighting and struggling.

It seemed as soon as one problem was solved, a new one arose.


Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with

water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the

first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last

she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without

saying a word.


In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished

the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and

placed them in a bowl.


Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning

to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see."


"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.


Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots.

She did and noted that they were soft.. The mother then asked the

daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she

observed the hard boiled egg.


Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The

daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked,

"What does it mean, mother?"


Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the

same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. . The carrot went

in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the

boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile.

Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after

sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The

ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling

water, they had changed the water.


"Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks

on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee



Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong,

but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my



Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes

with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup,

a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and

stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and

tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?


Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot

water, the very circumstance that brings the pain.. When the water gets

hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean,

when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation

around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest,

do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity?

Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?


May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials

to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to

make you happy.


The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of

everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their

way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you

can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures, mistakes ,

assumptions and heartaches.


Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and

everyone around you is crying.

Missing Someone

There was once this guy who is very much in love with his girl. This
romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of paper cranes as a gift to his

Although, at that time he was just a small fry in his company, his
future didn't seem too bright, they were very happy together. Until
one day, his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come back. She also told him that she cannot visualize any future for the both of them, so they went their own ways there and then... 

Heartbroken, the guy agreed. But when he regained his confidence, he worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make something out of himself.

Finally with all the hard work and the help of friends, this guy had 
set up his own company ..

You never fail until you stop trying. One rainy day, while this guy
was driving, he saw an elderly couple sharing an umbrella in the rain walking to some destination. Even with the umbrella, they were still drenched. It didn't take him long to realize they were his girl's 

With a heart in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the 
couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He wanted them to know that he wasn't the same any more; he had his own company, car, condo, etc. He made it! What he saw next confused him, the couple was walking towards a cemetery, and so he got out of his car and followed...and he saw his girl, a photograph of her smiling sweetly as ever at him from her tombstone and he saw his paper cranes right beside her... 

Her parents saw him. He asked them why this had happened. They
explained, she did not leave for France at all. She was ill with
cancer. She had believed that he will make it someday, but she did not want to be his obstacle... therefore she had chosen to leave him. 

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. She had wanted her parents to put his paper cranes beside her, because, if the day comes when fate brings him to her again...he can take some of those back with him... 

Once you have loved, you will always love. For what's in your mind may escape but what's in your heart will remain forever. 

The guy just wept...The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting
right beside her knowing you can't have her, see her or be with her 
ever again.........hope you understand.

Find time to realize that there is one person who means so much to 
you, for you might wake up one morning losing that person who you
thought meant nothing to you.

Paid in full with one glass of milk

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?" 

"You don't owe me anything," she replied

 "Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness." He said.... "Then I thank you from my heart." 

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger
physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit. 

Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly (gynecology) was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor's gown he we nt in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life.

 From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the 
business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked 
at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her 

She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her
life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught ; 
her attention on the side as She read these words.....

"Paid in full with one glass of milk." (Signed) Dr. Howard Atmond Kelly. 

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."

American Courts

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

>>>All of these lawyers must be in Washington D.C.<<<

WITNESS: No, I just lie there.

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget.
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

ATTORNEY: Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?

WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

How you see things !

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help." There were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. 

Soon the hat began to fill up.. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign cam to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps & asked, "Were u the one who changed my sign this morning? What did u write?"
The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what u said but in a different way." 
I wrote: "Today is a beautiful day but I can not see it." 

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the 1st sign simply said the boy was blind. The 2nd sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind.  Should we be surprised that the 2nd sign was more effective? 
Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what U have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently & positively

When life gives u a 100 reasons to cry,
show life that u hav 1000 reasons to smile. Face ur past without regret. Handle ur present with confidence.    Prepare for the future without fear.    Keep the faith & drop the fear

The most beautiful thing i
s to see a person smiling
Even more beautiful is, knowing that u are the reason behind it !!!

GOD will provide

A  young woman brought her fiancé home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother told her father to find out about the young man. 
The father invited the fiancé to his  study for a talk.
"So what do you do for a living?" the father asked the young  man.

"I am a biblical scholar," he replied.
"A Biblical scholar. Hmm........" , the father said. "Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in?" 

"I will study," the young man replied, "and God will provide for us."

"And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?" asked the father.

"I will  concentrate on my studies," the young man replied, "God will provide for us."

"And children?" asked the father. "How will you support children?"

"Don't worry Sir, God will provide," replied the fiancé.

The conversation proceeded like this and each time the father questioned, the young idealist insisted that God would provide.

Later, the mother asked, "How did it go Honey?" 
The father answered, "He has no job, no plans and he thinks I'm God!!"


Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. 
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: 
"Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"? 
To this Arthur Ashe replied: 
"The world over -- 50 million  children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the  grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, 
                    When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD 'Why me?'. 
                    And today in pain I should not be asking GOD 'Why me?'..... " 
"Happiness keeps you Sweet, 
Trials keep you Strong, 
Sorrow keeps you Human, 
Failure keeps you humble and Success keeps you glowing, But..... 
Only Faith & Attitude Keeps you going....... 

Law of the Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.

We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, 
'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined 
Your car and sent us to the hospital!'  

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,

'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around 
full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.  

As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll 
dump it on you. Don't take it personally. 

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. 
Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,

So ... Love the people who treat you right.

Pray for the ones who don't

is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

A Beautiful message from George Carlin

A Beautiful message from George Carlin - How True

his is a master piece.  If you have not read it take the time to read it now.  If you have read it take time to read it again! 
GEORGE CARLIN (His wife recently died...) 

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate. 
 A Message by George Carlin: 
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. 
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. 
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. 
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. 
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. 
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete... 
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. 
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. 
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent. 
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. An embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. 
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. 
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. 


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. 

If you don't send this to other people....Who cares? 

                     George Carlin

Written by a 90 year old...the 45 lessons life taught me.

This is something we should all read at least once...
