Check The Time....

Buying An Hour...

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year-old son waiting for him at the door...

Son: "Daddy, may I ask you a question"

Daddy: "Yeah sure, what it is?"

Son: "Dad, how much do you make an hour"

Daddy: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?"

Son: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"

Daddy: "I make Rs. 500 an hour"

"Oh", the little boy replied, with his head down.

Looking up, he said, "Dad, may I please borrow Rs. 300?"

The father was furious,
"if the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some moneyto buy a silly toy or other nonsense, then march yourself to your room and go to bed.Think why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior"

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions.How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down,and started to think:"May be there was something he really needed to buy with thatRs. 300 and he really didn't ask for money very often!"

The man went to the door of little boy's room and opened the door.

"Are you asleep, son?" He asked.

"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.

"I've been thinking, may be I was too hard on you earlier", said the man,"It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you.Here's the Rs.300 you asked for"

The little boy sat straight up, smiling "oh thank you dad!" He yelled.

Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled some crippled up notes.The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at his father.

"Why do you want money if you already had some?" the father grumbled.

"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.

"Daddy I have Rs. 500 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."

Tell me Sumthing.........

Why are looks so decieving?? Why do we happen to judge a person by our first encounter with him/her and then seem to interact with him/her according to that and finally when we come to know the person more and more, we find that are mistaken???
Maybe this is the law of the universe or the human nature, but whatever it may be, it is applicable in every walk of our life.
It often happens that we are a bit too much infatuated by someone's outer appearance or show and start thinking the world about him/her. Finally when we realise the void inside the person, we are disillusioned. This incident leaves us in such a state that we often stop trusting anyone else, with a faint hope lingering in our minds that someday that person may come up to our expectations and justify our feelings.

But it never happens.
Someone has rightly said " The Modern World worships only three Gods, I, Me and Myself." No one thinks about others. No one care for anyone or anything else other than their ownself and their commercial interests.
The poor, unthinking human heart never seems to realise this. As Rabindranath Tagore puts it "Error will not go away, logic and reason are slow to penetrate. We cling with both arms to false hope, refusing to believe the weightiest proofs against it, embracing it with all our strength. In the end it escapes, ripping our veins and draining our heart's blood; until, regaining consciousness, we rush to fall into snares of delusion all over again."
Sometimes it is just the opposite. We seem to take people too much for granted.
However in this way we are often deprived of some of our greatest friends in life. We never realise that the person whom we have a not-so-good opinion about can be really the person we were waiting for. We tend to avoid that person and never try to understand him/her properly.
Some people believe that everyone is destined in this world and has another person who has been sent to this earth for him/her. I dont know how much true this is but all of us need someone to care for and be cared by in life. However it is for us to find that right person out, we cant expect that person to come and knock at our door and say "Dear Sir/ Madam, I am the one made for you." We are supposed to find out him/her from the innumerable people we happen to encounter everyday.
However, because of our taking people for granted, we never seem to realise when this person, we are waiting for, walks into our life and when he went away. When we finally realised that, its often too late to do anything. We have already lost him/her and our life seems to be drowned in a deep valley of darkness.
Human realationships are one of the most complex things in this world and it is often beyond our capability to understand them.
So let them take what course they want to take????
Obviously NO.
There is something we can do about it....
I have realised that the best way to deal with this is to perhaps follow this...
Never take someone for granted,
Hold every person close to your heart
because you might wake up one day
and realize that you've lost a diamond,
While you were busy collecting stones......

Hope you people find out what you should follow before things get worse...............
So long........ENJOY !!!!
