Story Of a DOOR.

We had to do some carpentry work in our school today. So our carpenter(Nandana) started his work and started telling us a story while he is working.

There is a famous Hindu temple in our area.They had a committee of 28 people to to manage the temple administration.One day they wanted to fix a door to the kitchen.Nandana was appointed there to fix it.They brought a big nice door and asked Nandana to start up his work.

So he fixed it nicely within an hour and was doing some finishing works.While he was busy one of the committee member came and evaluated his work.
"Nandana,This is not what we want. We want to cut this door horizontally and make it as two separate parts then it is easier for us to communicate through upper part without opening the whole door."

So Nandana cut the door into two pieces and fixed the door.Then another senior committee member came by   the way and looked at the door and told "Why the heck you cut this door in such a way? I want you to cut this vertically then it is easy for us to walk through"

Nandana cut the door vertically and fixed it thought now they can open the door by four ways so they will not complaint again. But unfortunately the priest came and told "why this door is in a funny way? we just want to have few square holes in the door then we can easily exchange things through those.So fix it in that way."

 Nandana got irritated really.He did some patch work and put the holes again.Next the manager came and told "Here boy, Who asked you to put the holes and all patches in this door.Do you know the value of this door?I don't care what you will do.I want this immediately to be fixed and I want the way I gave you the door."

Nandana was about to cry. "Sir, Priest only asked to make some holes.All wanted in their own way.What I can do?"
"See,He gone crazy.Don't listen to all his crap.You just listen to me.Else you pay the cost of the door and leave."

He put the patches and fixed the door somehow. He saw the owner of the temple running towards him angrily. "@$#%#^%&$%... What have you done  #%$&^$&%&^(* .... You know how much I spent to build this temple? You know how famous is this? If people see my door,what they will think?... Manager,Throw out this person and have a replacement immediately.Buy a new door and ask the new person to fix it properly"

Nandana fainted infront of the door.

LovE YoU

When I told my boss "I care about my parents than anything in this world", He was looking at me with amusement.
"Don't you care about your own life?"
"This is my life sir, My life is my family"

I'm going through a hard time in my life.My mom is ill.I was behaving like a small kid and my mom was pampering me all these time. But once my mom fallen ill,my world turned upside down. I have so many duties lined up. Too many expenses. Emotionally I'm broken.

I went to my boss and told him,I'm going to resign my job because there is nobody to look after my mom.I'm a hard worker and he knows it.He never wanted to lose me.Then only this conversation started.

"Don't think you can hold of your family,Parents forever.You have to settle down in your life. You can't wait until you are old"
"Yes, I know. But my parents were everything for me. They gave me everything. Now It is my turn.I'll have to give everything what they want"

"That is their duty."
"then this is my duty"

He was looking at me proudly and said "I'll pray for your mom.If there is any need for money or support which I can offer,you can always come to me"
"Thank you sir"

"I like this commitment of yours and care for your family.I wish, my children also have this for me and treat me the same.I'm proud of you child"
I know this is what all the parents in this world wish. It could be from any part of this world.Any level of the society.They want their child to make them feel so special and cared by them. Not the money But THE CARE.

I LOVE you MOM and DAD. More than ANYTHING in this WORLD. I CARE about you.

LifE SaveR

This story is from history.Well, I'm not quite sure whether it is a fictional or a real story.

In 1973, Mrs. Bandaranayke’s government decided to establish the Shipping Corporation and decided to buy a Ship. Srilanka's first  ship Mv.Lanka Rani inaugurated the first Liner service in Srilanka. 

All srilankans were so amazed and they went to see that as it is first ship.Everybody were allowed to go inside and have a look.It was crowded by lots of people. Suddenly one girl fell in to the sea from the ship.All were shocked.They didn't know what to do as there ain't any life saver equipments.

Most of the youngsters pretended as they gonna jump and save the girl but nobody did it.Suddenly an old man jumped from the ship and struggled to save that girl. Fortunately an Army life saver boat came by the way and saved both of them.

Once they are safe,all the press reporters rushed to that old man and tried to interview him.They asked "when all the others waited without giving a try to save that girl,even youngsters ,How could you tried?Which made you to do this amateur work?'

He replied "If I ever see the person who pushed me down from the ship,I'll cut him into the pieces.. @#%$%&% &%^#$$#"

Simple hitting. Blood pouring..

Nobody is perfect. NOBODY..Even the people who shows them as perfect,they do have some silly minus points.

This story is about a teacher and his language.I'm not writing this to insult teachers(even am not so good in languages).But a small funny note to share with everybody.

There was a teacher in a small school who is very poor in English language.But he was very smart in covering it up.

One day when he was teaching,the class next to his, was filled with of noises.He got irritated by the noise as he couldn't continue the lesson.So he went to that class.

When he went, he saw two class students got together and playing cricket inside the class room.He shouted at them angrily and told them not to make any noise.Once he gone,they started doing the same thing again.

He was annoyed to the extreme and came back. Angrily slapped one child. unfortunately,The child's ear started bleeding.It was a very small injury on outer ear.But all the students made the teacher scare saying it is bleeding from inside.

The incident was taken to the principal.He asked what exactly happened.So the teacher started explaining this way.

"Two classes....Small Children...Playing cricket....
Shouting shouting....
I,one time telling. No hearing...
two times telling. No hearing...
three times telling No hearing...
Simple hitting. Blood pouring..."

My Half Brother's Question

My Great Grand uncle passed away last week.Oh No,Don't sympathize that much because it was a happy news/incident for me(How cruel mined I am....).Because the funeral was in my home town which is far,far away.So it was a picnic after a long time(for me) :)

Not only myself.I could see all my relatives were in the same mood.I was quite happy about it otherwise I should pretend like crying(which I used to do in all the funerals).

My aunt's son,He is only 3 years old.A naughty brat though he is very quiet always.A silent killer.He has never been to any funerals.That is his first experience.He silently sat on a chair and noticed everything which was happening.Not even a single word he uttered.

After they took the coffin to the grave yard,he ran to me and asked. "Akki(Sister), Why they put our grand uncle inside a cupboard?And they are carrying him away as well.Are they going to throw him in to garbage pit?????He gonna smell bad when he returns home.Yuck....!"

I was speechless.

Boss's Birthday

Happy Birthday Boss!
Teamwork is not everyone carrying their jobs, it is when you tell them to do their job.

You inspire us, encourage us

And protect us from harm

You know when to turn up the heat

And when to stay calm

Hope you are happy with the birthday bash which we had today.

Happy Birthday to a wonderful person and a great boss.
