The other side

A father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him.

Trying to keep her busy, he tore out one page on which was printed the map of the world. He then tore the page into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with the perfect map…

When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh… Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper… I made the face perfect to get the map right.” She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.

Reflection:

There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. This story indirectly teaches a lesson. i.e. whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side… You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.

    Amazing. Similar to a driving truck getting caught under the bridge because the truck is couple of inches higher than the normal minimal bridge height in USA (13 feet 6 inches).

    The structural engineers and Mechanical engineers are at the scene wondering how to fix the problem. Some suggest lifting the bridge (immense cost and time) while other suggest taking apart the truck piece by piece.

    In a nearby car kid is watching this and asked his mother what are they doing? She explains the dilemma and says it will hours to fix the problem.

    The kid simply says. “Mom why don’t they just take the air out of the tires?

    THERE IS ANOTHER MORAL OF THIS STORY…

    We all say that this world is not good…..full of selfsame people…. BUT IF WE CAN CHANGE PEOPLE, THE WORLD WILL BE CORRECTED AUTOMATICALLY, AS THE SAME THAT WAS BY THAT LITTLE CHILD … HE ARRANGED THE MAN AND THE WORKD GET CORRECTED.

    There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world, AND THIS IS WHAT I HAVE LEARNED.

    You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem. 🙂

    Yes true..the most important thing is to handle things and do them the way we see them, the way we understand..not the way others point of view.

    Life isn’t as difficult as we sometimes picture it; everything depends on our mindset, our attitude and our belief.
