A small story to remember.... by doctor srinivasulu
A 6 year old boy was in the market with his 4 year old sister.suddenly the boy found that his sister was lagging behind. He stopped and looked back.his sister was standing in front of a toy shop and was watching something with great interest.the boy went back to her and asked do you want something. The sister pointed at the doll.the boy held her hand and like a respensible elder brother ,gave that doll to her.the sister wears very happy.
The shopkeeper was watching everything and getting amused to see the matured behavior of the boy.now the boy came to the counter and asked the shopkeeper what is the cost of the doll sir. The shopkeeper was a cool man and had experienced the odds of life.so he asked the boy with lot of love and affection , well,what can you pay
The boy took out all the shells that he had collected from the seashore,from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper.the shopkeeper took the shells and started counting the shells as if he was counting the currency.then he looked at the boy.the boy asked him worriedly, is it less.
The shopkeeper said,no no these are more than the cost.so I will return the remaining.the boy very happily kept the shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister.
A servant in that shop got very surprised watching all these.he asked his master,sir you gave away such a costly doll for just 4 shells.
The shopkeeper said with a smile,well ,for us these are just mere shells.but for the boy these shells are very precious.and at this age he does not understand what money is,but when he grows up he defenitely will.and when he would remember that he purchased a doll with the shells instead of money,he will remember me and think this world is full of good people.it will help him develop a positive attitude and he too in turn will feel motivated to be good.
Whatever emotion you infuse into the world,it will further spread.if you do good,goodness will spread..if you do bad,negativity will spread.realize you are a very powerful source of energy..your good or bad will come to you magnified.not in the ways you want it, and not in the ways you can understand it.but it will come back.
It's beautiful story.i loved it so posted it.
