  • We all are in the same Boat

     

    I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday and I love today.
     
    Noah’s
    Ark :  Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah’s Ark .
    ONE:  Don’t miss the boat.
    TWO
    :  Remember that we are all in the same boat!
    THREE
    :  Plan ahead.  It wasn’t raining when Noah built the
    Ark. 
    FOUR
    :  Stay fit.
    When you’re 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
    FIVE:  Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
    SIX:
      Build your future on high ground.
    SEVEN
    :  For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
    EIGHT
    :  Speed isn’t always an advantage.  The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
    NINE
    :  When you’re stressed, float awhile.
    TEN:  Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
    ELEVEN
    :  No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s alwaysa rainbow waiting.
    Most people walk in and out of your life,
    but FRIENDS leave footprints in your heart.

     A Touching Farewell

    A true and real story.

    It  is about a certain Mr Zavere Poonawala who is a well-known industrialist in Pune. He had a driver named Ganga Datta with him for the last 30 years on his limousine. This limousine was previously  ownd by Bhagwan Rajneesh and Mr Poonawala had bought from him.

    Ganga Datta passed away recently and at that time Mr Poonawala was in Mumbai for some important work. As soon as he heard the news he canceled all his meetings, requested the driver’s family to await him for the cremation and came back immediately by a helicopter.

    On reaching Poona he asked the limo to be decorated with flowers as he wished Ganga Datta should be taken in the same car which he himself  had driven since the beginning. When Ganga Datta’s family agreed to his wishes, he himself drove Ganga Datta from his home upto the ghat on his last journey.

    When asked Mr Poonawala was very sorrowful and replied that Gangadatta had served him day and night and he could at least do this being eternally grateful for him. He further added that Gangadatta rose up from poverty and educated both his children very well. His daughter is a Chartered accountant and that is so commendable.

    His comment in the end is the essence of a successful life in all aspects- All earn money which is nothing unusual in that, but we should always be grateful to all those people who contribute for our success. This is the sanskars we have been brought up with which made me do what I did.

    This  is s a superb example of humanity.
