A BAD HABIT

A BAD HABBIT WHICH SOME OF US OR OUR CHILDREN MAY HAVE...

THE BELOW LEARNING THAT TOO ON DEEPAWALI IS A BEST TIME TO CHANGE.. SO TRY TO CHANGE IT...


Germany is a highly industrialized country.
In such a country, many will think its people lead a luxurious life.

When I arrived at Hamburg , my colleagues walked into the restaurant, we noticed that a lot of tables were empty. There was a table where a young
couple was having their meal. There were only two dishes and two cans of beer on the table. I wondered if such simple meal could be romantic, and whether the girl will leave this stingy guy.

There were a few old ladies on another table. When a dish is served, the waiter would distribute the food for them, and they would finish every bit of the food on their plates.

As we were hungry, our local colleague ordered more food for us.When we left, there was still about one third of un-consumed food on the table.

When we were leaving the restaurant, the old ladies spoke to us in English, we understood
that they were unhappy about us wasting so much food.

"We paid for our food, it is none of your business how much food we left
behind," my colleague told the old ladies.
The old ladies were furious. One of them immediately took her hand phone out
and made a call to someone. After a while, a man in uniform from Social Security organisation arrived. Upon knowing  what
the dispute was, he issued us a 50 Euro fine. We all kept quiet.

The officer told us in a stern voice, "ORDER WHAT YOU CAN CONSUME, MONEY IS YOURS BUT RESOURCES BELONG TO THE SOCIETY. THERE ARE MANY OTHERS IN THE WORLD WHO ARE FACING SHORTAGE OF RESOURCES. YOU HAVE  NO REASON TO WASTE RESOURCES."

The mindset of people of this rich country put all of us to shame. WE REALLY NEED TO REFLECT ON THIS.

We are from country which is not very rich in resources.
To save face, we order large quantity and also waste food when we give others a treat.

THIS LESSON TAUGHT US A LESSON TO THINK SERIOUSLY ABOUT
CHANGING OUR BAD HABITS.

"MONEY IS YOURS BUT RESOURCES BELONG TO THE SOCIETY."

An inspirational story

Poisoning Mother–In–Law

A long time ago in China, a girl named Li–Li got married and went to live with her husband and mother–in–law.

In a very short time, Li–Li found that she couldn’t get along with her mother–in–law at all. Their personalities were very different, and Li–Li was angered by many of her mother–in–law’s habits. In addition, she criticized Li–Li constantly.

Days passed days, and weeks passed weeks. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese tradition, Li–Li had to bow to her mother–in–law and obey her every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing the poor husband great distress.

Finally, Li–Li could not stand her mother–in–law’s bad temper and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it.

Li–Li went to see her father’s good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the problem once and for all. Mr. Huang thought for a while, and finally said, "Li–Li, I will help you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you." Li–Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do." Mr. Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of herbs.

He told Li–Li, "You can’t use a quick–acting poison to get rid of your mother–in–law, because that would cause people to become suspicious. Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspects you when she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. Don’t argue with her, obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen."

Li–Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her mother–in–law.

Weeks went by, months went by, and every other day, Li–Li served the specially treated food to her mother–in–law. She remembered what Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper, obeyed her mother–in–law, and treated her like her own mother. After six months had passed, the whole household had changed.

Li–Li had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost never got mad or upset. She hadn’t had an argument in six months with her mother–in–law, who now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with.

The mother–in–law’s attitude toward Li–Li changed, and she began to love Li–Li like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and relatives that Li–Li was the best daughter–in–law one could ever find. Li–Li and her mother–in–law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter. Li–Li’s husband was very happy to see what was happening.

One day, Li–Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again. She said, "Mr. Huang, please help me to stop the poison from killing my mother–in–law! She’s changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her."

Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li–Li, there’s nothing to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."

 

May all be happy , may all be free from disease ,

May all have well-being and none have misery of any sort
