Good vs Evil: Good Samaritan Teens / Teen Rapists

Good vs Evil: What prevails more in our society? Good or Evil? We leave the choice to you to evaluate the society you belong to. However in this new section ‘Good vs Evil’ we bring out the two extremes of the social incidents. The good one which sets an example and ensure we raise our kids like them. And the evil one which makes us aware and ensure we raise our kids unlike them and enable them to protect themselves from such evils.

The Good: Good Samaritan Teens

The three teenagers from Ontario, Canada, went for a drive and spotted a stranger’s broken car. She was struggling with no help at the highway, who can’t afford to tow the vehicle. The boys decided to help her by pushing her car till her home. Interestingly, her home is not at the next street, but 7 miles far. But the good Samaritans did it. (Read the full story here)

The Evil : Teen Rapists

Rape-accused

In India, rape has become a routine crime and going on like it has no full stop. According to a report about 1,752 rape incidents are reported every year in the Indian state of Odisha, alone. But it saddens us, when the crime is committed by teenagers whom we can still call as boys next door.  A college student was allegedly gang-raped in Odisha’s Sundargarh by five youth, including three of her classmates, who dragged her into a forest on her way back to home after college.

Bottom line: Every kid is born with a blank soul, it is us the society and the parents who script their character. Teach them Good and make them practice it. Make them aware of the Evil and help them fight it.

 

Comment your thoughts… Ideas to bring up good character in kids.

Story : Gift Some Love

Gift some Love

“Hey, this will look awesome for you” he showed that lovely Knee Length Pink frock with flowers to her.

“Look what I have selected for you!” she presented to him that cute Pants with braces in excitement.

The twins have chosen dresses for each other from that large pile of donated clothes. They both are happy after a long time, as their parents are no more to gift a new dress for their birthday.

Their smiles worth a billion thanks to some unknown kind human being.  


Moral: No matter how big or small, nothing is more valuable than that one random act of kindness & love which bring those beautiful smiles in others.

Story : On time – An Employee’s relinquishment

“What happened Peter?, will it take more time?”

“Karan, seems I need a mechanic to fix it!”

“Ok, let’s do something I catch up an auto, you arrange a mechanic. I have to be there on time”

“Hmm.. Sounds better, you go fast the meeting will commence in another 30 mins, I will handle this. You must be there”

“Auto!” one arrived at his service immediately. “Go to Crescent IT park”

He heaved “What a day! Breakdown, when there is no traffic jam!” he thought.

Vehicles moved a little faster than usual. He hoped to make it on time.

“Excuse me, sir!” the auto driver slowed down to the left.

“What happened?, you too don’t say a break down story again” Karan felt panic about the meeting, he must be there on time to give the presentation.

The auto has stopped, the driver stepped out with his water bottle and sipped some water.

“It’s getting late?” Karan chafed.

“Sorry, Please get another auto sir!” the driver fought for breath.

“What? Crazy man! Why the hell, then you…!” Karan, not much interested to argue with him and got out of the auto and his mobile was ringing.

Karan answered “Yes, Sir, I am on the way… I will make it on time… Actually the car broke down. Not a problem sir, Thank you, no need to send any car, Yes sir, I’ll be there. See you there”.

Karan glared the auto driver and walked a couple of feet. “Auto!” he called up for another one and there was no scarcity of autos in the city.

“Crescent Towers.” he was about to get in. He wanted to give an ultimate accusing look at the previous driver and looked at his direction.

“My God!” Karan’s anger crumbled to see that auto driver collapsed on the roadside. With no delay, he jumped out of that auto and rushed to him. Blood was oozing out of his nose and he seemed unconscious. He called out the other auto driver to help moving him inside the auto.

“Go to the nearest hospital!” he urged the auto driver.  The fierce auto was chasing the other vehicles; towards the hospital.

“Sorry sir, I cannot make it, please send the car to Peter and he can handle the presentation. I explain everything later, sir!” Karan spoke out “NO” to his boss for the first time and he made it to the Hospital on time.

Story : Coffee on the Wall : Must Read

coffee

I sat with my friend in a well-known coffee shop in a neighboring town of Venice, Italy, the city of lights and water.

As we enjoyed our coffee, a man entered and sat at an empty table beside us. He called the waiter and placed his order saying, “Two cups of coffee, one of them there on the wall.”

We heard this order with rather interest and observed that he was served with one cup of coffee but he paid for two.

When he left, the waiter puts a piece of paper on the wall saying “A Cup of Coffee”.

While we were still there, two other men entered and ordered three cups of coffee, two on the table and one on the wall. They had two cups of coffee, but paid for three and left. This time also, the waiter did the same; he put a piece of paper on the wall saying, “A Cup of Coffee”.

It was something unique and perplexing for us. We finished our coffee, paid the bill and left.

After a few days, we had a chance to go to this coffee shop again. While we were enjoying our coffee, a man poorly dressed entered. As he seated himself, he looked at the wall and said, “One cup of coffee from the wall.”

The waiter served coffee to this man with the customary respect and dignity. The man had his coffee and left without paying.

We were amazed to watch all this, as the waiter took off a piece of paper from the wall and threw it in the trash bin.

Now it was no surprise for us – the matter was very clear. The great respect for the needy shown by the inhabitants of this town made our eyes well up in tears.

Ponder upon the need of what this man wanted. He enters the coffee shop without having to lower his self-esteem… he has no need to ask for a free cup of coffee… without asking or knowing about the one who is giving this cup of coffee to him… he only looked at the wall, placed an order for himself, enjoyed his coffee and left.

A truly beautiful thought. Probably the most beautiful wall you may ever see anywhere!

Random Act of Kindness: True Story of Bill

A true story from John W. Schlatter. We always say a random act of kindness can be meant a lot to others and make them view their life totally new and positive. Here we share one more beautiful story proving the same moral

2friendsMark was walking home from school one day when he noticed the boy ahead of him had tripped and dropped all of the books he was carrying, along with two sweaters, a baseball bat, a glove and a small tape recorder.

Mark knelt down and helped the boy pick up the scattered articles. Since they were going the same way, he helped to carry part of the burden. As they walked Mark discovered the boy’s name was Bill, that he loved video games, baseball and history, and that he was having lots of trouble with his other subjects and that he had just broken up with his girlfriend.

They arrived at Bill’s home first and Mark was invited in for a Coke and to watch some television. The afternoon passed pleasantly with a few laughs and some shared small talk, then Mark went home.

They continued to see each other around school, had lunch together once or twice, then both graduated from junior high school. They ended up in the same high school where they had brief contacts over the years. Finally the long awaited senior year came and three weeks before graduation, Bill asked Mark if they could talk.

Bill reminded him of the day years ago when they had first met. “Did you ever wonder why I was carrying so many things home that day?” asked Bill.

“You see, I cleaned out my locker because I didn’t want to leave a mess for anyone else. I had stored away some of my mothers sleeping pills and I was going home to commit suicide. But after we spent some time together talking and laughing, I realized that if I had killed myself, I would have missed that time and so many others that might follow. So you see, Mark, when you picked up those books that day, you did a lot more, you saved my life.”
