The Carpenter !


cid:1.413193453@web110013.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

The Carpenter   
Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict. It was the first serious rift in 40 years of farming side-by-side, sharing machinery and trading labor and goods as needed without a hitch.

Then the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and it grew into a major difference and finally, it exploded into an exchange of bitter words followed by weeks of silence. 

One morning there was a knock on John's door. He opened it to find a man with a carpenter's toolbox. "I 'm looking for a few days' work," he said. "Perhaps you would have a few small jobs here and there I could help with? Could I help you?"

"Yes," said the older brother. "I do have a job for you. Look across the creek at that farm. That's my neighbor. In fact, it's my younger brother! Last week there was a meadow between us. He recently took his bulldozer to the river levee and now there is a creek between us.  Well, he may have done this to spite me, but I'll do him one better. See that pile of lumber by the barn? I want you to build me a fence an 8-foot fence -- so I won't need to see his place or his face anymore." 

The carpenter said, "I think I understand the situation. Show me the nails and the post-hole digger and I'll be able to do a job that pleases you."

The older brother had to go to town, so he helped the carpenter get the materials ready and then he was off for the day. The carpenter worked hard all that day -- measuring, sawing and nailing. About sunset when the farmer returned, the carpenter had just finished his job.

The farmer's eyes opened wide, his jaw dropped. There was no fence there at all.

cid:2.413193453@web110013.mail.gq1.yahoocom

It was a bridge .. A bridge that stretched from one side of the creek to the other! A fine piece of work, handrails and all! And the neighbor, his younger brother, was coming toward them, his hand outstretched..

"You are quite a fellow to build this bridge after all I've said and done." 

The two brothers stood at each end of the bridge, and then they met in middle, taking each others hand. They turned to see the carpenter hoist his toolbox onto his shoulder.

"No, wait! Stay a few days. I've a lot of other projects for you," said the older brother. 
"I'd love to stay on," the carpenter said, "but I have many more bridges to build."

Remember This...  
God won't ask what kind of car you drove, but He'll ask how many people you helped get where they needed to go. 

God won't ask the square footage of your house, but He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.  

God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet, but He'll ask how many you helped to clothe.   

God won't ask how many friends you had, but He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.  

God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived, but He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.  

God won't ask about the color of your skin, but He'll ask about the content of your character. 

God won't ask why it took you so long to seek Salvation, but He'll  lovingly take you to your mansion in Heaven, and not to the gates of hell.

The Enemy of Mankind - MAIDA !!

REPERCUSSIONS of consuming Maida :-


Consumption of Maida will have serious health hazards. It can be termed as Man's biggest enemy !!
Maida or refined flour clings to the entrails like cement and is next to impossible to get rid of it. Maida stays in the digestive system for a longer period and rots thereby causing lots of complications. It is responsible for many ailments and diseases viz., constipation, indigestion, malnutrition, diabetes and cancer. It is a contributing factor to heart disease, hiatus hernia, gallstones, colon polyps,cancer of colon and rectum, varicose viens, obesity and haemorrhoids. Maida causes lots of diseases in the human body.
Include atta (wheat flour) in your diet and say good bye to Maida. Atta has enough fibre to ensure proper and slow digestion. But when we remove the outer husk to obtain maida, we transform it into a dangerous substance, which we eat because of its taste. 


One must avoid the following Maida items viz; Noodles, pasta, Gulab Jamun, Samosa, patties, Spring Rolls, hot dog, macaroni, Jalebi, momos, swiss roll, Naan, Bhatura, papri, matthim, biscuits  and golgappa.


Stop consuming eatables made of Maida and switch over to Atta. Your system will be grateful to you forever. Consumption of whole wheat bread is good. People normally prefer maida preparations simply because of its taste. Besides, maida items have a more shelf life and is tastier. You must focus on your life rather than that of the food items. Remember that Maida is the number one enemy of Mankind. The sooner you abandon Maida the better !!! Converting Atta to maida will loose its major nutrients. Ironically we discard the useful part of wheat grain and give it as a fodder to animals and end up consuming the harmful residue for ourselves. Hence, beware and at once switch over to Atta from  Maida for your own good and the good of your family !!

LIFE'S LESSONS !!!

‎[1] Regular naps prevent old age, especially if you take them while driving.

[2] Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee.

[3] Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband!

[4] I believe we should all pay our tax with a smile. I tried - but they wanted cheque.

[5] A child's greatest period of growth is the month after you've purchased new school uniforms.

[6] Don't feel bad. A lot of people have no talent.

[7] Don't marry the person you want to live with, marry the one you cannot live without, but whatever you do, you'll regret it later.

[8] You can't buy love, but you pay heavily for it.

[9] Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.

[10] Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

[11] Marriage is give and take. You'd better give it to her or she'll take it anyway.

[12] My wife and I always compromise. I admit I'm wrong and she agrees with me.

[13] Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others.

[14] Ladies first. Pretty ladies sooner.

[15] A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

[16] You're getting old when you enjoy remembering things more than doing them.

[17] It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up with the same boss.

[18] Real friends are the ones who survive transitions between address books.

[19] Saving is the best thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you.

[20] Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something

[21] They call our language the mother tongue because the father seldom gets to speak!

[22] Man: Is there any way for long life?
Dr: Get married.
Man: Will it help?
Dr: No, but then the thought of long life will never come.

[23] Why do couples hold hands during their wedding? It's a formality just like two boxers shaking hands before the fight begins!

[24] Wife: Darling today is our anniversary, what should we do?
Husband: Let us stand in silence for 2 minutes..

[25] It's funny when people discuss Love Marriage vs Arranged. It's like asking someone, if suicide is better or being murdered.

[26] There is only one perfect child in the world and every mother has it.

[27] There is only one perfect wife in the world and every neighbour has it!

LORD NARADA'S DEVOTION !!

Once Narada (messenger in the Heaven) approached Lord Vishnu and asked who his best devotee was. He expected the answer to put him as the best. But to his surprise Lord Vishnu said that Arjuna was his best devotee. Narada was not satisfied with his answer. The Lord knew what went in Narada’s mind. Narada doubted the integrity and impartiality of the Lord. So Lord showed Narada two heaps of flowers and started explaining ‘’Look at the small heap of flowers. That is yours. What you have offered me all through your life is saved there. Look at the hill of flowers there. That is Arjuna’s. Now Narada became even more suspicious. He boldly opened his mouth to say, Well, I am Triloka Sanchari (Traveller of the three worlds). I have never seen Arjuna doing Puja (flower offering) to you. How do you explain this hill of flowers? Then Lord told him, you do the puja with your hands with great pride in your mind. But Arjuna does it in his mind. Whenever and wherever he sees beautiful flowers, he dedicates them to me saying ‘Krisna arpanam astu’ (Let all this go to Krishna). Narada realised that open rituals are far inferior to great mental purity. Hariom

UNPREDICTABLE WOMEN !!!

Women are unpredictable. Before marriage, she expects a man, after marriage she suspects him, and after death she respects him.

2.There was this guy who told his woman that he loved her so much that he would go thru hell for her. They got married - and now he is going thru hell.

3.A man inserted an 'ad' in the classifieds : " Wife wanted". Next day, he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing "You can have mine."

4. When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing: either the car is new or the wife.

5. It's easy to tell if a man is married or not. Just watch him drive a car with a woman sitting beside him. If both his hands are on the wheel, you can be sure he is married.

Sahasranamam's Grandson ( Fiction)

Ganesan was the ninth child in chronological order of Smt.Nagaratnammal; first eight children 
were girls. Sahasranamam's Joy knew no bounds when his daughter Ratnam as he affectionately 
called her, gave birth to a baby boy on the Eve of Vishu. The village Anamooli wore a festive look.People danced in Joy and merriment. They burst crackers and distributed sweets. The news spread like wildfire in the entire village that Sahasranamam has begot a grandson.


Anamooli is a small village where one can see beautiful Paddy fields, lush green forests, Mango groves, hills and small streams, betelnut trees besides coconut trees. There is an LP School at the top of the village hill. There was a small temple of Lord Subramanya also called as Murugan Koil in Tamil Language in the heart of the village. Devotees thronged the temple premises during evening hours to offer prayers.      
Lord Murugan 

Sahasranamam's house was know as Chengotta Madom. The house derived its name due to Red Colour of the Bricks which was used for construction of the house. The only Brahmin family in the entire village was that of Sahasranamam. He was a Vedic Scholar and an authority on religious matters. He had mastery over Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Saama Veda and Atharvana Veda. His son-in-law Shaktivel was appointed as the Chief Priest and Purohita of the Murugan Temple.

One can hear from a distance chanting of Vedic Hymns and Sacred Mantras and Shlokas flowing out from the house which rent the air during evening hours. Everybody in the village respected the family members of Sahasranamam.; who was the oldest man in the whole village. People used to consult him on matters of every day importance. He acted as an Adviser to all in the village. He was the only person who could converse well in Sanskrit and English with the same ease. Thus, he carved a niche for himself. Even the Britisher's respected him for his Intelligence, Sincerity and Honesty. He was a very simply and upright man. He stopped wearing Shirt soon after Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated. He wore only a simple Khaddar Dhoti, One Rudraksha Maala, One long Towel which hung on his shoulders like a snake on Lord Shiva's Neck besides a pair of slipper and a walking stick. He had only few hair on his head which he locked like a tuft. He had a long Nose, glittering face and sparkling eyes - a sign of Intelligence it seems ! Despite the fact that he had crossed 87 years of age, he could walk erect without anybody's help. Sacred Mantras chanted by Sahasranamam included the following :-
" Om Satyam, Om Tatsa Vithurvarenyam, Bhargo Devasya Dee Mahi, Dwiyo Yona: Prajodayaad, Om Bhurbuvaswaha" ! Sahasranamam had a melodious voice. During evening hours he chanted "OM MUKHEM NAMAH SHIVAYA" 1001 times daily.Ganesan learnt most of the sacred hymns from his grandfather.

Sahasranamam named his grandson as Ganesan after the name of Lord Vinayaka the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathy. When the boy was hardly five years old he was admitted in the local school. He went reluctantly to the school carrying his satchell which was almost his own weight !! Ganesan was a child prodigy.He mastered all the four Vedas by the time he was 9 years old. Even the senior pundits sometimes consulted him for his opinion; in case of a debate on some points. He gave his unbiased opinion without any fear or favor. Ganesan had powerful memory and used to recite Sanskrit verses fluently. Sanskrit came to him spontaneously like how a duckling takes to water. While, elders admired Ganesan, his peers and seniors were jealous of him. But he did not mind them at all. 

Only Kuttivelan had the privilege of visiting Chengotta Madom off and on; even though held as an outcaste, he belonged to the "Cheruma" community. Untouchability was very much rampant in those days. Kuttivelan had a pair of Buffaloes which he used to bring to the open courtyard of the Chengotta Madom for grazing.; where grass is abundantly grown. He was well behaved and noble hearted. Ganesan was fond of him because he narrated fairy tales and stories which included ghost stories and supernatural stories. He was well versed in Parables too !! Ganesan listened to the stories with rapt attention.

Kuttivelan was entrusted with the work of coconut felling, cutting of logs apart from kitchen gardening.He took great care of the plants which he grew in the garden There were Brinjals, cucumbers, chillies, tomatoes, lady's finger, bitter gourds, beans and pumpkins. Kuttivelan addressed Ganesan as " Kutty Thamburan " meaning young master.

Sahasranamam was the only octogenarian who survived among his contemporaries. People believed that he had some kind of supernatural powers. He knew magic besides, Mantra's and Tantra's. The place for construction of his house was given to him as charity (Dhaan) by a rich peasant who died without an heir.  He also received thirty acres of land and charity. 

His fortune began to decline when the land reform Act came into being. Consequently, he too lost his entire thirty acres of land to his tenant like many others. The richest landlord in the village was Karunakara Menon, who managed to retain over five hundred acres of land. He was very cunning as well as arrogant, besides being an athiest. Before, returning to the village, Menon had served an American Company as Chief Executive. He was very greedy and wanted to drive this Brahmin family from the village. Menon found no other way but to buy the Chengotta Madom from Sahasranamam. In fact, the place for construction of the house belonged to Menon's ancestors.
Thus, he bought the house at a throw away price. Sahasranamam's family moved to a rented house near the Murugan temple in the same village. Meanwhile, Ganesan had passed his 3rd standard. He was good at studies, even though he reluctantly went to school. He became the darling of his teachers and favorite of his friends. After the Vishu festival was over, the school closed for two months' vacation. Ganesan was very happy and he enjoyed playing with his friends in the neighbour hood. He often visited the Menon's house too.

During the 'Vishu' festival there is a practice of giving silver coins to young people and children which ranged from 25 paise to one rupee., by the head of the familly known as 'Karanavar' in the local dialect. The other recipients of coins were Tailors, Washer-men (Dhobi's),  Barber's and other servants. Ganesan too collected coins from elders and his collection turned out to be 
rupees twelve!! Ganesan went to Karunakara Menon's house as usual for playing not knowing what destiny was in store for him. Menon was busy supervising digging of a well at his newly constructed Bungalow. So many servants were busy digging the well. five rupees was missing, Mrs.Menon informed Menon who was near the well. Menon thundered at the servants and called each one of them and questioned. Everybody pleaded ignorance., thus, the missing coin shrouded in mystery. One could buy a bag full of vegetables in those days. Suddenly, Menon's eye fell on the playing children. Ganesan was one among them.He called Ganesan near him and demanded the money. Ganesan also pleaded ignorance like many others. Menon didn't hear his pleas. He soon called his muscle men and instructed them to extract the truth from the boy.They beat him up and tied him with a rope. He was taken to the middle of the well and made to stand in the mid-air without food and water.They rolled their eyeballs and threatened to take him to the Police station. What can an innocent boy of nine years, a student of 3rd standard do but cry. Ganesan wept until there were no more tears left in his eyes. At last, Ganesan was released in the evening. He ran home crying and explained his ordeal which he went through. His face turned pale, his eyes swollen  
and became red.

Nagaratnammal broke down uncontrollably. Tears rolled down her cheeks like pearls She had faith in her son. The boy never took even a small candy without her permission. How can he steal five rupees ? What can he do with the money ? She immediately rushed to Menon's house  dragging her darling son. His grandpa also reached Menon's house in defense of Ganesan . Menon didn't heed her words at all. He abused all the three of them and shooed them away.

Sahasranamam began an indefinite fast which lasted three days. He renounced not only food but also water.He chanted the sacred 'Gayathri' for three days constantly without a break. On the fourth day he was a bit relaxed. He prayed to God for saving his grandson from this ignominy.
He cursed Menon from his heart, and thereafter Menon had an untimely death as he was bitten by a mad dog. He died at forty years of age leaving behind his young wife and five children. The innocent child was branded a thief.The old man could not withstand the shock. He became in a state of soliloquy. After a couple of years he left for his heavenly abode at the ripe age of ninety one years. Though, the missing five rupees remained a mystery people still believe that Karunakara Menon's death was due to the pious Brahmin's curse.
