Story : Poverty Cannot Limit Love

Poverty is no limit for love

A very poor man lived with his wife.

One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.

The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.

The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.

He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short haircut.

She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.

Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

Story : Remember the Duck! Forgive Yourself!

boy-and-duckThere was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was given a slingshot to play with, but only in the woods. He practiced in the woods, but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back to dinner.

As he was walking back, he saw grandma’s pet duck. Just out of impulse, he let it fly, and hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved. In a panic, he hid the dead duck in a woodpile only to see his sister watching. Sally had seen it all, but said nothing.

After lunch that day Grandma said, “Sally, let’s wash the dishes.” But Sally said, “Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen today didn’t you Johnny?” And then she whispered to him, “Remember the duck?” So Johnny did the dishes.

Later, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing, and Grandma said, “I’m sorry, but I need Sally to help make supper.” But Sally smiled and said, “Well, that’s all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help.” And she whispered again, “Remember the duck?” So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed home.

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s, he finally couldn’t stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessed that he killed the duck. She knelt down, gave him a hug, and said, “Sweetheart, I know that. But because I love you, I forgive you. But I was wondering just how long would you let Sally make a slave of you.”


Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done? And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc…)whatever it is.You need to know that:

God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has seen your whole life… He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven. He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.. The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness. He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved. Go ahead and make the difference in someone’s life today.

Coming Soon… “Blank Space : Filled with Inspiration”

It was just a dream… “A book of 100 inspirational stories penned by 100 people.” Many thought just another start but doubted the possibility for making it real. But now it is REAL. 🙂

We had nothing but silence as an answer. Now the journey of Propel Steps begins with the first step of the big journey ahead aiming to bring realistic social changes by enabling the youth via education irrespective of their economic and rural/urban differences.

A concrete and powerful kickstart, this would not have happened without you all 100 Incredible People who support us with patience and perseverance always. Especially some very special people who gave way for a few others, with so much understanding and smiles.

Final Cover BS(small)It has become a reality specially because of Pankaj HaramwarPreethi Venugopal, Barun Bajracharya, Karthikeyan Chandra Srinivasan , Balaji RajagopalanKarthikeyan Selvam, and Nijam Deen.

The list is so long if we mention all by name, we are concerned not to miss someone, hence we kept the list short. We have stories to share about everyone who helped us to make the book better. We will share those beautiful moments when we introduce the Authors.

Soon we will come up with 3 projects simultaneously following the release of Blank Space. (tentatively in the first two weeks of Jan 2015)

We need you support for making this project successful. Pre-orders beginning soon… 🙂

Speech : Aim of Education by Paul Yingling

This is one of the meaningful speech on Education. A lot of insights to ponder upon.

Story : 47°C

47 Degrees Celsius

47°C, heat literally sucked away his energy. 1Km distance seemed like a marathon, when he reached the hotel for lunch.

A fresher, a small company, an unknown city, a rude boss and all the donkey works with no choice were the cursing ingredients of his life.

“Meals? 60 Rupees! No money? Then get out” the man at the billing table shouted at an old lady.

He looked at his purse – exactly 60 rupees and some coins.

He bought a meal token and gave to her. She reluctantly accepted.

He smiled and continued walking, the ATM was just three kilometers away.
