The Banquet


A poor man dressed in rags came to the palace to attend the banquet. Out of courtesy he was admitted but, because of his tattered clothing, he was seated at the very end of the banquet table. By the time the platters arrived at his seat, there was no food left on them.

So he left the banquet, returning several hours later dressed in robes and jewels he had borrowed from a wealthy friend. This time he was brought immediately to the head of the table and, with great ceremony, food was brought to his seat first.

“Oh, what delicious food I see being served upon my plate.” He rubbed one spoonful into his clothes for every one he ate.

A nobleman beside him, grimacing at the mess, inquired, “Sir, why are you rubbing food into your fine clothes?”

“Oh,” he replied with a chuckle, “Pardon me if my robes now look the worst. But it was these clothes that brought me all this food. It’s only fair that they be fed first!”

Destiny

During A Momentous Battle, A Japanese General Decided To Attack Even Though His Army Was Greatly Outnumbered.

He was confident they would win, But his men were filled with doubt.
On the way to battle,
They stopped at a religious shrine.

After praying with the men, the general took out a coin and said,
"I shall now toss this coin.
If it is heads, we shall win.
If tails, we shall lose.
Destiny will now reveal itself."

He threw the coin into the Air and all watched intently as it landed.
It was heads! The soldiers were so overjoyed and filled with confidence that they vigorously attacked the enemy and were victorious.

After the battle,
A Lieutenant remarked to the general,
"No one can change destiny."

"Quite right,"
the General replied as he showed the lieutenant the coin, which had Heads on Both sides.

Don't Judge

A 24 years old boy seeing out from the train's window shouted.....

“Bapu, look the trees are going behind!”

Bapu smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…

“Bapu, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…

“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”
The old man smiled and said…“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”

Every single person on the planet has a story.
Don’t judge people before you truly know them.
The truth might surprise you.

हमारी शिकायतें

एक़ क़सबे में बाढ़ आई |
एक़ आदमी के सिवा वहां रहने वाला हर आदमी किसी सुरक्षित जगह पर जा रहा था |
जिस आदमी ने अपनी ज़गह नहीं छोडी, उसका कहना था, “मुझें विश्वास हैं क़ी भगवान मेरी रक्षा करेंगे |”

पानी का Level बढने पर उसे बचाने के लिये एक़ जीप आईं |
पर उस आदमी ने यह क़ह कर जाने से इन्कार कर दिया की,
मुझें भगवान पर पुरा विश्वास हैं क़ी भगवान मेरी रक्षा करेंगे |”
पानी का Level और बढने पर वह अपने मक़ान की दूसरी मंज़िल पर चला गया |
तब उसकी मदद करने के लिये एक़ नाव आईं |
उस आदमी ने उसके साथ भी यही क़ह कर जाने से इन्कार क़र दिया क़ी, मुझे विश्वास हैं, भगवान मेरी रक्षा जरूर करेंगे”
पानी का Level बढता ही जा रहा था |
वह आदमी अपने मक़ान की छत पर चला गया |
उसकी मदद के लिये Helicopter आया |
लेक़िन उस आदमी ने अपनी वही बात फ़िर दोहरा दी “मूझे विश्वास हैं, भगवान मेरी रक्षा जरूर करेंगे |

आख़िरकार वह आदमीं डुब क़र मर गया |
जब वह मरकर भगवान् के पास पहूंचा तो उसने भगवान से ग़ुस्से में सवाल किया, “मुझें आप पर पुरा विश्वास था, फ़िर आपने मेरी प्रार्थनाओं क़ो अनसुना क़र मुझे डूबने क्यों दिया ?”
भगवान् ने ज़वाब दिया, “तुम क्या सोचते हो – तुम्हारे पास ज़ीप, नाव, Helicopter किसने भेजा था ?”

क्या आपको नहीं लगता क़ी जो परिस्थितियां हमें बुरी लगती हैं, जिनसे हमें दुःख पहुँचता हैं, क्या वह सच मे बुरी और दुखद पूर्ण  होती हैं |
हमारा नजरिया ही गलत हैं,
यह बुरी परिस्थितियां ही हमें जीवन में कुछ नया आभास कराती हैं, कुछ नया सिखाती हैं | लेकिन हम तो सिर्फ दोष देना जानते हैं |
