Be Patient. Trust Life. I Love YOU.
Little Ramesh came from school on Saturday and told his father, my teacher has given us home-work to hug 10 people and tell them – “Be patient, trust life. I Love you.”
The Dad said – “Ok, we will go to the Mall tomorrow morning and do it”.
The child woke up all spirited up in the morning, got ready. Went to his Dad and said – “lets go!”
The father said – “There is heavy rainfall, I fear nobody might be there”.
Little Ramesh still insisted. So the father drove in the horrible rainy weather to the mall.
They stood in the mall for one hour, and the little Ramesh hugged 9 people and conveyed the message.
His father then said – “Ramesh, now lets go, its raining heavily and we shouldn’t get stuck!”
Sad, the son went along with his father’s orders. As they where driving past, the child pointed at a random house.
Said – “Please dad, just 1 person is remaining, I will go to that house and complete my homework!”
The father smiled and pulled the car over. Ramesh went to the door and began to ring the bell and pound the door strongly with his knuckles. He kept waiting. Finally the door was opened gently.
A lady came out with a very sad look and gently asked:
“What can I do for you, son?
With radiant eyes and a bright smile Ramesh said:
“Ma’am my teacher has told to hug 10 people and tell them – _”Be patient, trust life. I Love you”.
“I have hugged 9 people. May I hug you and pass the message to you.”
The lady embraced him, and started crying profusely. On seeing that the Boy’s father came out of the car. He went to the lady and asked – “Any problem madam?”
She composed herself, took them inside, gave them a cup of tea and then told his father –
“My husband died a while ago leaving me totally alone in this world. Today morning the loneliness took over me. Since morning I have been thinking that this is the end of the road for me.”
“Then I took a chair and a rope to my bedroom and decided to end my life. As I was seeing the world for one last time, I begged for forgiveness to Lord Krishna and then heard this knock. I thought to leave it. But then nobody comes to visit me.”
When I opened the door, I couldn’t believe what my eyes saw this little child.
And when he said, “Be patient, trust life. I Love you.”
“I knew it was a message from God. Suddenly I realised I don’t want to die anymore, and have decided to make something productive of my life.”
Wishing you Happy and Successful Friday! May you succeed in your life’s purpose.
