डर के आगे ही जीत है
एक गुंडा शेविंग और हेयर कटिंग कराने के लिये सैलून में गया.
नाई से बोला -”अगर मेरी शेविंग ठीक से से बिना कटे छंटे की तो मुहमाँगा दाम दूँगा ! अगर कहीं भी कट गया तो गर्दन उड़ा दूंगा !”
नाई ने डर के मारे मना कर दिया. गुंडा शहर के दूसरे नाइयों के पास गया और वही बात कही.
लेकिन सभी नाईयो ने डर के मारे मना कर दिया.
अंत में वो गुंडा एक गाँव के नाई के पास पहुँचा. वह काफी कम उम्र का लड़का था.
उसने कहा – “ठीक है, बैठो मैं बनाता हूँ”.
उस लड़के ने काफी बढ़िया तरीके से गुंडे की शेविंग और हेयर कटिंग कर दी.
गुंडे ने खुश होकर लड़के को दस हजार रूपये दिए.
और पूछा – “तुझे अपनी जान जाने का डर नहीं था क्या ?”
लड़के ने कहा – “डर ? डर कैसा? पहल तो मेरे हाथ में थी…”.
गुंडे ने कहा – “‘पहल तुम्हारे हाथ में थी’ का मतलब नहीँ समझा ?”
लड़के ने हँसते हुये कहा – “भाईसाहब, उस्तरा तो मेरे हाथ में था…अगर आपको खरोंच भी लगती तो आपकी गर्दन तुरंत काट देता !!!”
बेचारा गुंडा ! यह जवाब सुनकर पसीने से लथपथ हो गया।

एक छोटा बच्चा जूते के शोरूम के बाहर खड़ा डिस्प्ले में रखे जूतों को देर से निहार रहा था। वहां कई डिजाइनों में झक सफ़ेद से लेकर अलग-अलग रंगों के ढेर सारे जूते रखे थे। वह कभी किसी जूते को देखता, कुछ सोचता, कुछ बुदबुदाता और कभी दूसरे जूतों को।
अचानक एक महिला उसके पास पहुंची। उसकी उम्र 40-45 वर्ष की रही होगी। चेहरे-मोहरे और पहनावे से वह संभ्रांत परिवार की लग रही थी। बच्चे को ध्यान ही नहीं था कि कोई उसके पास खड़ा है, लेकिन जब महिला ने उसके सिर पर हाथ फेरा, तो उसने चौंककर देखा। महिला ने पूछा, ‘तुम इतने ग़ौर से क्या देख रहे हो?’ बच्चे के मन में जो था, उसने साफ़-साफ़ बता दिया, ‘मैं भगवान को मना रहा था कि काश! वह एक जोड़ी जूते मुझे दिला दे।’
उसकी बात सुनकर महिला मुस्कराई और उसका हाथ पकड़कर शोरूम के भीतर ले गई। वहां उसने बच्चे के माप के 10 जोड़ी मोजे निकालने का आदेश दिया। बच्चे को बड़ा आश्चर्य हो रहा था। फिर उस महिला ने दुकानदार से पानी भरी बाल्टी और तौलिया मांगा। उसके बाद वह बच्चे को लेकर दुकान के पीछे ले गई और साबुन-पानी से उसके पैर अच्छी तरह साफ़ किए। फिर उन्हें तौलिए से सुखाया।
इसके बाद उसने अपने हाथों से बच्चे को मोजे पहनाए और बाक़ी मोजे उसके झोले में डाल दिए। फिर वह उसे लेकर डिस्प्ले में गई और पूछा कि वह किस जूते के लिए कह रहा था। बच्चे ने जिस जूते की ओर इशारा किया, उसने निकलवाकर ख़ुद उसे पहनाया और उसके चेहरे की ओर देखने लगी। हैरान बच्चे ने उससे पूछा, ‘क्या आप भगवान की पत्नी हैं?’Read Details
I was walking around in a Big Bazar store shopping, when I saw a Cashier talking to a boy who couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old.
The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll. Then the little boy turned to me and asked: ''Uncle, are you sure I don't have enough money?''
I counted his cash and replied: ''You know that you don't have enough money to buy the doll, my dear.'' The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.
Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to. 'It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much. I wanted to Gift her for her BIRTHDAY.
I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.' His eyes were so sad while saying this. 'My Sister has gone to be with God. Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister.''
My heart nearly stopped. The little boy looked up at me and said: 'I told daddy to tell mommy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.' Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me 'I want mommy to take my picture with her so my sister won't forget me.' 'I love my mommy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister.' Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.
I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. 'Suppose we check again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?''
'OK' he said, 'I hope I do have enough.' I added some of my money to his with out him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some spare money.
The little boy said: 'Thank you God for giving me enough money!'
Then he looked at me and added, 'I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy could give It to my sister. He heard me!'' 'I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mommy,
but I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose. My mommy loves white roses.'
I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started. I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind. Then I remembered a local news paper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl. The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma. Was this the family of the little boy?
Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the newspaper that the young woman had passed away.. I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial. She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest. I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed for ever.
The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him.

Once a boy went to a shop with his mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said 'Dear Child.. u can take the sweets.but the child didn't take.
The shop keeper was surprised.such a small child he is and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle. Again he said take the sweets. now mother also heard that and said.. take the sweets.. yet he didn't take...
The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets... he himself took the sweets and gave to the child...... the child was happy to get two hands full of sweets .When they returned home Mother asked child...
Why didn't you take the sweets.when the shop keeper told you to take.Can you guess the response:
Child replies... Mom! my hands are very small and if i take the sweets i can only take few.. but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands.... how many more sweets i got!
Moral: When we take we may get little but when God gives... HE gives us more beyond our expectations.more than our thoughtRead Details
A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: "Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 yr. old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together." So the doctor said: 'Ok, and what do you want me to do?' She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.' The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: "I think, I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.' She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request. Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms. The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child! 'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution. The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!Read Details
