Two Stories!!

Today I went across a couple of stories which were funny as well as thought provoking. one from Panchatantra Tales and the other from Arabian Nights.. I thought to keep them down in my blog so that I can read them in future..

Lion & Sheep: Long long ago, in a jungle, there lived a lioness. when it was about to deliver a cub it went on to hunting. In the middle of the jungle, the lioness delivers a cub and passes away. Now this little cub wanders around and ends up along with some sheep. With time passing on, this cub eats with sheep, plays with the sheep and finally behaves exactly as sheep. After some time, another lion comes to hunt the sheep and it realizes that the cub is running away from it. So this lion goes to the cub and asks the reason for its fear. Cub innocently replies that, but for running it will be eaten by the lion.

Nearly  eight decades ago something very unusual happened.. three young men who are around 25 happily sacrificed their life just to make this world understand that there is something in this planet which is superior to human selfishness.. seeing the courage and valor of those three men even  Mt.

the quake & Tsunami have caused a real damage to Japan.. seems the death toll is in thousands and the financial damage may amount to Billions of dollars..

Pray that enough strength should be given to people who are fighting the evil stroke.. pray that all  humans would realize the need of living as one family and show solidarity to Japan..

We should stand by Japan.. WE SHOULD!!!
