Let us Start
Young King Arthur was ambushed and Imprisoned by The monarch of a neighbouring kingdom.
The monarch could have killed him But was moved by
Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, The monarch offered him his freedom, As long as He could answer A very difficult question. Arthur would have A year to figure out The answer and, If after a year, He still had No answer,
He would be Put to Death.
The question was:
*What do Women really want?*
Such A question would perplex
Even The Most Knowledgeable man.
And to Young Arthur, It seemed An Impossible query.
But, Since It was Better than Death, He accepted the
Monarch’s proposition to have An answer by Year’s end.
He returned to His kingdom and Began to poll Everyone:
The princess, The priests, The wise men, and Even The Court Jester. He spoke with Everyone, But no one could give Him a satisfactory answer.
Many people advised Him to consult The old witch, For only She would have The answer. But the price would be
High as The Witch was Famous throughout The kingdom for the Exorbitant prices She charged.
The last day of The year arrived and Arthur had No choice
But to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer The uestion,
But first He would have to Agree to her price.
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, The most noble of the Knights of The Round Table, and Arthur’s closest friend. Young Arthur was Horrified.
She was Hunch-backed And hideous, had only One Tooth,
smelled like Sewage, Made obscene noises, etc.
He had never encountered such A repugnant creature in
All his life. He refused to force His friend to Marry her and
Endure such A terrible burden.
But Lancelot, Having learnt of the proposal, Spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was Too big of a sacrifice ompared to Arthur’s life. And the reservation of the Round Table.
Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and
The witch answered.
Arthur’s question thus: “What a woman really wants?”
She said, “A woman wants to be in charge of her own life.”
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth, and that Arthur’s life would be spared. And so it was. The neighbouring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him.
The most beautiful woman he had ever seen was sitting by the bed.
The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth become her horrible and deformed self only half the time,
And be The Beautiful Maiden The other half.
“Which would You prefer?” She asked him.
“BEUATIFUL During the DAY… OR At NIGHT?”
Lancelot pondered The predicament.
During the day, He could have A Beautiful woman
To show off to His Friends,But at night, In the privacy of
His castle, An old witch!
Would he prefer Having a Hideous witch During the day?
But By night A Beautiful Woman for him To enjoy wondrous moments with?
(If You are A man reading this)
What would YOUR choice be?
(If You are A woman reading this)
What would YOUR MAN’S choice be?
And Lancelot’s Choice is Given below…
BUT, Please Make YOUR choice First Before You
Knowing the answer
The witch gave to Arthur for his question, Sir Lancelot said that He would Allow HER To make The choice Herself.
Upon hearing this, She announced that She would be
Beautiful All The Time, Because He had respected Her enough to Let Her be In charge of Her Own Life.
What is The Moral to This
The moral is :
1. There is ‘Witch’ in Every Woman, No matter
How Beautiful She Is.
2. If You Don’t let A Woman have Her Own way,
Things are going to Get Ugly.
So, Be careful How You Treat A Woman and
IT IS EITHER “HER WAY” OR IT IS “NO WAY”!!!

- The Cockroach Theory for Self-development Response Vs ReactionAt a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady. She started screaming out of fear. With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.
Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky.
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but …it landed on another lady in the group.
Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.
The waiter rushed forward to their rescue.
In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter.
The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behavior of the cockroach on his shirt.
When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.
Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behavior?If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed?
He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.
It is not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that disturbed the ladies.
I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.
It’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.
More than the problem, it’s my reaction to the problem that creates chaos in my life.
Lessons learnt from the story:
I understood, I should not react in life.
I should always respond.
The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of, just and right to save a situation from going out of hand, to avoid cracks in relationship, to avoid taking decisions in anger, anxiety, stress or hurry.
