The Road Not Taken

My favourite poem by Robert Frost, which I read in my childhood, and that has made all the difference.

 
This poem by Robert Frost (1874-1963) is probably one of the most famous and celebrated American poems. The poem depicts the agony of a decision making and the rewards of forging your own path. The subject of the poem is faced with a decision of taking the “safe” route that others have taken before or breaking new ground. He says that he took the “road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference”. He finds that making original and independent choices makes life rewarding.
 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

 

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

 

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

 

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Lovely Story

I just love this story!!! One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious.

When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner.

Following this conversation, President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you?” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her.

President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant?” Michelle responded, “No, if I had married him, he would now be the President Of The US.”

Believe it or not, sometimes it’s a woman that makes a man who he is! 🙂

So for the single men that are still searching for a wife, may God help you to find that help mate that will turn you from ” a nobody” into “a somebody”. For that single lady that is reading this, may you be that blessing no man can do without.

Two Wise People

Princess Suryaprabha, who was very beautiful and intelligent, wanted to marry a man who was even more intelligent and learned than her. She was not too concerned about wealth or looks. So she said to her father, ‘I have decided. Let any man ask me nine questions. If I am unable to answer even one of them, I will marry him.’

The king knew well how bright she was and was worried. ‘And what if you answer all the questions?’ he asked. ‘Then he will be rejected and will not get a second chance.’ The king had no choice but to agree to her condition and made the announcement in the kingdom. Many people arrived to try their luck. But the princess was too clever for them, and she answered each one’s questions in no time.

The king became more and more worried. He decided to talk to his most trusted friend, Ganapati Maharaj, who was a teacher, about this. Ganapati heard him out, then said he would send his brightest student Shashishekhar to question the princess.

The next day, a handsome young man appeared in court. He was dressed simply but his eyes shone bright with the light of knowledge. He announced that he had nine questions for the princess and, in no time, was sitting before her.

‘How many stars are there in the sky?’ was his first question.

Suryaprabha replied, ‘There are as many stars as there are hair on a goat.’

‘Which is the most beautiful child on earth?’

‘For every mother, her child is the most beautiful.’

‘What is the difference between truth and lies?’

‘It is the difference between our eyes and ears. Our eyes will always see the truth but our ears can hear both truth and lies.’

‘Which person has hands, yet is considered handless?’

‘A rich man who does not share his wealth.’

‘Who has eyes but is still blind?’

‘A man without compassion, who does not see the suffering that exists in this world.’

Then Shashishekhar showed her a picture of a crumbling palace and asked what it meant.

By now the princess was sure this was no ordinary man. But it did not take her long to give her answer.

‘A house without a proper foundation, be it a palace, will collapse.’

He showed another picture—of an old lady collecting firewood, while carrying a heavy load on her back.

The princess smiled and replied, ‘This picture depicts human greed. The woman has collected so much wood, yet she does not want to give up and go home.’

Now, the princess had answered seven questions accurately. There were only two left.

Shashishekhar then asked a very clever question: ‘Princess, which is the question you can’t answer?’

Suryaprabha was stumped. If she told him, Shashishekhar would ask that question as the last one,

and if she did not, she would lose anyway. She smiled and bowed her head. ‘I accept defeat.’

Thus it came to be that the two wisest people in the kingdom got married and lived happily.

Best Inspirational Story

A Businessman was deep in debt and could not see any way out.

Creditors and Suppliers were demanding payments. He sat in the park, deep in thought, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.

Suddenly an old man appeared before him and asked, “I can see that something is troubling you seriously”.

After listening patiently the old man said, “I believe I can help you”. He asked the man his name, wrote out a cheque and put it into his hands saying,

“Take this money, meet me here exactly one year from today… and you can pay me back at that time”.

Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.

The businessman saw in his hands a cheque for $ 500,000… signed by Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in the world.

“I can erase my worries instantly” he realized. But instead, the man decided to put the uncashed cheque in his safe, knowing that it might give him the strength to work out to save his business and to use this only in case of dire emergency.

With changed thinking he negotiated better deals, restructured his business and worked rigorously with full zeal and enthusiasm and got several big deals.

Within few months, he was out of debt and started making money once again.

Exactly one year later he returned to the park with the uncashed cheque.

As agreed, the old man appeared.

But just as the businessman was about to hand him back the cheque and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man. “I’m so glad I caught him” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you much. He always escapes from the mental hospital and tells people that he is Warren Buffet”, saying this she took the old man away.

The surprised man just stood there, stunned! All year long he had been dealing thinking that he had half a million dollars behind him…

Its not the money, real or imagined that turns our life around.

It is our Self-confidence that gives us the power to achieve anything & everything that we want.

Have a Confident life..!!
