I would have become a thief today if my dad had not walked with me that day :-)

Cimplicityrockss 7 – I would have become a thief today if my dad had not walked with me that day 🙂 i know this title is very big to fit in but it is not just a title ………………..it is a fact

 

It was almost 8 PM on a weekday and on the main busy street of Majestic bus stop in Bangalore i walked holding my dad’s hand to visit our family doctor…this happened some years back. Those who have visited this oldest business center of Bangalore can actually get a clear picture of what am talking…..

The street was filled with darkness as it was 8PM but had enough light for all the road side businesses ….Just to give a glimpse of  how this street looks i have to tell you that this place is one of the very oldest business center with lakhs of people earning their food be it in big shops or on the corner of the road…..plenty of carts, plenty of buses, groups of people sitting on the road and selling different things…..hmmmm It is in this place you can actually see different faces of our life 🙂

I walked on this road holding my dad’s right hand and my right hand was waiting to do something mischievous. When my dad’s eyes were busy looking straight and ensuring safety while walking my eyes noticed a heap of peanuts on a cart . The cart owner stood behind the heap and was looking for customers. I was a small girl (mostly 8 years old )and went unnoticed to the seller..this became an advantage for me and within no seconds i lifted one hand full of peanuts without giving any clue………and walked happily with dad…

It was only after walking 15 minutes away from the cart i showed my dad the stolen peanuts with a face filled with sense of smartness. My dad immediately stopped me and asked “where did you pick this from ?”and i replied smilingly thinking that he will be happy seeing my cleverness but he immediately held my hand much tighter and took me back to the same cart and asked me to drop all the peanuts which i had stolen. The peanut seller was watching me and my dad and dad smiled at him and we walked our way back…..Am sure the seller had understood what had happened…:-)

Friends here i have to tell you that i was just a kid and my dad could have done any of these below listed options

  • My dad could have thought that i was a kid and just laughed and continued walking
  • My dad could have hit me for stealing
  • My dad could have thought that it was 15 minutes far and does not make sense to walk back all the way to that cart
  • My dad could have thought that the peanut seller might fight with us for stealing and it would be wise not to go back  

My dad did not do any of these and instead chose to walk with me straight back to the seller and teach me a lesson….I would have become a thief today if my dad had not walked with me that day 🙂

I learnt a beautiful lesson from my dad long back 🙂 Did you ?

Guest or ghost at green villa?

This is a little green story for all of us who are yet to go green


  Long long ago 🙂 there was a cute little family of 4 …..Mom – earth, father – Sky and 2 little kids – water and air. All the 4 lived very happily. They were so good hearted that they never gave room in their family for any kind of fights, anger, hate and sorrow . All that they knew was LOVE. Mom earth was extremely broad minded and very caring, she never said no to anything, gave her love to everyone but never asked it in return. Father sky loved his wife a lot  but was very innocent he just  knew to protect his family and spread love everywhere.. Both the kids water and air were very cheerful, pure at heart, and extremely happy. All 4 were so well bonded and colourful from heart that they always looked like a beautiful green bud blooming with colours of life and yes their house was named as “GREEN VILLA”.

One sudden day  there was these uninvited guests “A man and a woman “ who knocked the door of this “Green villa” . Mom earth opened the door and came to know that these guests had stopped at green villa for a short time shelter. She was extremely happy to see some one at her place asking for shelter. She whole heartedly welcomed them and introduced sky and her two kids. The “green villa” family offered everything to guests with at most love and affection.Mom earth arranged for best of best place for guests to stay comfortably, Kid water gave them sweetest of sweetest drink to serve their thirst, kid air gave them purest of purest air to breath in, father sky gave them safest of safest protection to stay fearlessly and the entire family offered them healthiest of healthiest food to their taste. Guests were completely over joyed with what they had got.

After a while, the family and guests went for a walk around green villa on a casual chat. This is the time when the guests got to see the real treasure of  “Green villa” family. They saw huge big trees full of green bent down to give fresh fruits , next to it was over filled and happily flowing river with nectar , they smelled the freshness of purity in wind which blew in melody. East west north south everywhere it was fresh and green. The guests had never ever seen such a wealthy and healthy place even in their dreams.

The guests thought for a while and decided “why leave this place when such a wealth has come to us as a boon. It is a life time opportunity for both of us, lets make a plan and divide this family forever so that we can occupy this “green villa” and enjoy it forever and ever.”

So what was the plan all about ??

The guests left green villa on that day and returned back next day again.

Guests :      We are so happy and fortunate to have met your family who are so good hearted, we felt that even our son has to get this opportunity to meet you all.

Green villa family:   We are happy too serve your family again

Guests:  Here he is , our only son – PLASTIC

This is the last time the “Green villa” family was seen healthy and happy

Kid air died as plastic smoked hazardous gas (Polluted air)
Kid water died as plastic dived in the river of nectar (Polluted water)
Mom earth fell ill seeing her kids killed by plastic (earth quakes)
Father sky  cried as he couldn’t protect his family from plastic (Uneven rain fall)

Now you decide whether we are “guests or ghosts at green villa????

Am learning to be GREEN ….please give your simple GREEN suggestions to
GO GREEN
