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.
