Pebble Tower

He walked on the shore
As the sun kissed the earth
And the sky filled with exuberant birds
As the whoosh of waters touched his feet 
And his eyes reflected the sea’s gleam
He went ahead to hold the sand
Which shied away from his breezy hands
A pebble tower he sat to build
For a young lad like years ago he did
Small, big, coloured, shapeless ones
A miniature he created that fell many times, but later stood tall under the sun.
His heart couldn’t contain its joy to watch his son happily cling to his body
Life had taken its course
Once a kid, now a Daddy!

This is one story which i heard recently and thought it was gr8 2 share with everyone.


In a small village, a man lived with his wife and kids. He earned a meager salary which he found difficult to feed his family or pay the school fees for his kids. This hand to mouth condition found him doing odd jobs to make ends meet. The problems in his life led to more stress and fights with wife. One such night, he stormed out of the house in anger and went to a nearby river. He sat there for a long time praying to God to take away his problems and get him get a better job and earn more. Besides him lay a sack of pebbles which he randomly threw into the river in desperation the entire night. He thought of how his life would have been if he was a rich man!!!!

The next day, he was still sitting by the riverside and held the last pebble in his hand. He noticed that the sun rays falling on the pebble made it shine. Suddenly, he realized that it was a GOLD COIN. It meant that he threw these Precious coins into the river. He choked with grief that he failed to notice the precious thing besides him which would have made him a wealthy man today!!!!

Thus, this story makes us realize that we fail to identify our inner beauty and strength and valuable things and people in our life rather than pleading for worldly pleasures of life.
