​*Dilemma*

A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other is not.

Only one child is playing on the unused track; the rest on the operational track.
A train is coming, and you are just beside the track changer. You can make the train change its course to the unused track and save most of the kids.
However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the unused track would be sacrificed.
Or would you rather let the train go its way?
Let’s take a pause to think what kind of decision we would make… 
Have you thought enough??? 
Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child. Save most of the children at the expense of only one child is a rational decision most people would make, morally and emotionally.
But, have you ever thought that the child who chose to play on the unused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?
Nevertheless, he was to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.
This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the RIGHT is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how far-sighted and knowledgeable the wise are.
The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track were aware that the track was still in use, and that they would run away when they hear the train’s sirens.
Now, If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never expects that a train could come over on the unused track!
Further, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe. If the train was diverted to such a track, we may put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And in our attempt to save few kids thinking that the train may run over them, we might end up sacrificing hundreds of people.
While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decision may not always be the right one.

The decisions you take shapes your destiny, so keep them away from influence of anger, frustrations, hatred, arrogance etc.

A carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop.
The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and accidentally bumped into a double-edged metal axe and got very slightly injured.
In anger and seeking revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Instead the cobra’s mouth started bleeding.
Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried its best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself very tightly around the blades.
The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a seriously cut, dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades.
The cobra died not because of someone else’s fault but faced these consequences merely because of its own anger and wrath.

· Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as time passes by, we realise that we have caused more harm to ourselves.
· For a happy life, it’s best we should learn to ignore and overlook some things, people, incidents, affairs and matters.

· It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding or reacting to.
· Lets Treat people with kindness even if they hurt you.
· People that show no inclination to change, are best handled with silence and prayer.
The decisions you take shapes your destiny, so keep them away from influence of anger, frustrations, hatred, arrogance etc.

You have one life. Create stories worth telling.

A mind that is stretched by new experiences can never go back to its old dimensions.

Stop chasing the wrong one. The right one won’t run.
