the choices we make are the variables that decide the kind person we are.. Good and bad are the only two choices, there is no optimum in it... either you do good or you do bad.. I sometimes wonder why do we have to think so much before doing something or deciding somethings in life?? the answer to this lies in the following example:
A boy named Purshottam was ready to row across the river, he dint stop until he heard a cry.. A cry of a crocodile.. crocodile which is trembling in pain.. Purshottam went in the direction of the sound of the cry, and found a crocodile stuck in the nets of fishermen..
the crocodile starts pleading Purshottam to help him let free from the nets.. Purshottam being a kind man, thinks about the plead.. He said "No! not on the last day of my life, will i free you... i cannot believe you crocodile, what if i free you and you eat me?" the crocodile started sobbing, not able to see the pain and suffering of the crocodile, kind Purshottam frees his head form the nets.. the moment he frees the crocodile, in a fraction of second the crocodile ceases Purshottam's leg in his powerful jaws...
trembling in pain, Purshottam asks him WHY??? I saved your life.. why?
the Croc Answered .."SUCH IS THE LIFE"
Purshottam saw birds in the nest above the banks, on a tree.... is the Croc right?? such is the life?? the birds said yes, such is the life.. we build our nest on the top most branch of the tree, still the snake always gets there and eat all the eggs.."SUCH IS THE LIFE"..
Purshottam asks an old donkey who was walking slowly, "tell me donkey, is the croc right??". donkey says yes.. when i was young, my master used to load on me lot of materials, i used to wear a velvet cloth on my back.. i was well fed always... now when i'am old and cat do any work, he abandoned me from his house...."SUCH IS THE LIFE"
Purshottam asks a Rabbit the same question, rabbit said NO.!! the crocodile is wrong.. he is an idiot.. the croc enraged, couldn't reply properly as he had Purshottam leg in his mouth.. He said to the rabit"I am not arguing just because I have his leg in my mouth, or i would teach you a lesson" Rabbit told, you crocs have such a strong tail.. you can kill the Boy if he tries to run.. Croc fell for this, released the boy.. Croc forgot that his tail is stuck in the nets..Boy ran into the safe.... rabbit smiles and says "SUCH IS THE LIFE"...
The fishermen caught hold of the Croc and killed it.. Purshottam now realized that yes "SUCH IS THE LIFE"....
