Once when Mahatma Gandhi Aka Bapu was 8 years old, he reached late to his school. It was rainy season and the dark clouds covered the whole sky. Gandhiji reached late and his teacher asked, “Why are you late?”. Gandhij innocently said, “ Due to the dim light of the sky, I was not able to judge the time, therefore got late”. The teacher said, “ I dont think this is a valid reason, please give 1 Ana (money used earlier in INDIA) for coming late.
Gandhaji started to cry. His friends asked him why is he crying, as his father is rich and can give that punishment amount. Gandhiji said, “ I am not crying because of the money to be paid, I am crying because the teacher thought I told him a lie”.
A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed.
The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.
That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.
Moral of the story: If you don’t give your hundred percent in a relationship, you’ll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like love.
Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully.
