A Great Thought
In a restaurant, one well-known chef cooked very tasty Pulav using high-quality rice. As soon as the Pulav was ready, its aroma spread all over the place. Every mouth started watering 😋 Now all were eager to taste the Pulav.
About a hundred people were served the Pulav.
Just when everyone was about to take the first bite. The chef came and announced that there is a small stone left in the Pulav. As it was of the same color and size as the rice grain, he couldn’t find it. He warned people that the stone might injure them if it comes in between the teeth. So everyone should be careful while eating. The flavor of the Pulav was nice. The taste was also delicious but now the fun of eating had gone.
Everyone was forcefully swallowing one bite after another without paying attention to the taste while eating. The more they became aware, there was no talk, no gossip among them. All were quiet & silent. Before the start of the meal, it was fun to be together. Now even though they were together, one by one, they fell into a trance. Everyone ate until the end. Even the last bite was taken care of.
After completing the meal everyone sighed relief for not getting the stone. They washed their hands. Just then, someone noticed that no one got the stone 🤔😖
Then they called the chef & asked him, “You had said that one of us will get the stone while eating.”
The chef said, ‘I had removed most of the stones but if there was one left by mistake. I just wanted to warn all of you.” 😟
They started looking at each other. There were no discussions about the very delicious Pulav. Everyone was exhausted after the meal because the ease of eating had gone. They had found it was so hard to eat !!🙃🙃
At present, Due to this pandemic, our condition has become like that stone in the Pulav. It is not possible to say who will get this stone.
The ease of living has gone. Even with the helping hand which comes forward, we fear that we will get Corona. Milkman, vegetable vendors, grocer, while buying every necessity of life, we are worrying about what will come with it. This is how we are living our lives.
Earlier when one sneezed, we recite ‘God Bless’. But now we presume whether nature has pulled out our file? No one knows for how long it will go.
But it is a humble request not to let your happy life become useless like the delicious Pulav. Don’t read negative news and posts. Read motivating posts, infotainment, and books. Cultivate hobbies and buy happiness in kilos & tones just from yourself.
