Good is always tortured to become the best
(Please do not end your life)
(Many and many of my friends have written this story in Tamil without mentioning the original author.Thanks to all of them)
One day , walking through a thick forest ,.
A sage noticed that a man was trying to.
Hang himself on a tree and die and the saint ,
Prevented him and asked”Why son?
He said, “I always faced defeat in this world,
I was born poor, and I did not how to earn money,
I was unfortunately honest , People deceived me ,
Paid me less , paid me late and we all starved”
“I am poor but poverty is definitely not a crime,
Though I work hard, I face only sorrow and sufferings ,
In this life and so I thought , I would end this life,
But unfortunately you have stopped me, Oh saint”
The saint smiled and told , “Gold is a very costly metal,
And normally pure but people when they want to use it ,
Break it , beat it , bend it and burn ii again and again,
Even though they know that it is good, valuable and useful.”
“Among the crops Sugar cane is extremely sweet ,
But people cut it , crush it , press it and then,
Take it through hard to pass wheels ,
Before they take juice to drink from it .”
“So it is natural that good things in the world,
Go through these tedious punishments ,
And I feel that it is good such punishment is given.
Because the purest and best possible comes out of it.”
“Take the cow’s milk . It is heated till it is boiled,
It is fermented and curd is made out of it,
This curd then churned for along time to get butter ,
And again this butter is heated to get the ghee.
“Have you thought why? Simply because milk is good,
And similarly a good and great men are churned ,
Tormented , troubled , made to work hard and made to starve,
And the wise people do not bother about it at all.”
“It is because they know they will eventually become the best and ,
Valuable like pure gold , sweet juice and tasty honey and so you please go home ,
Soon the final result will come on an unexpected day,
Through an unexpected person in an unexpected way.”
That man , suddenly realised that all the problems,
Are only purifying him and he would one day,
Be recognised and ultimately reach God and when,
I watch increasing suicides all over , I wish that sage would come.
