I was really moved by this story

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside. "Tha...t laundry is not very clean; she doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap." Her husband looks on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbor hangs her wash to dry, the young woman makes the same comments. A month later, the woman is surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and says to her husband: "Look, she's finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this? " The husband replies, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows." And so it is with life... What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look

  3. One day during winter of 2011 I was looking after my two Gersy Cows. As grasses had all dried up the cows were just wondering from place to place looking for green grasses. The next day I happened to be in the town for shopping. During shopping I came across an Optical shop and purchased two pairs of green glass goggles for my two cows. The next day I put on the goggles on my two cows and drove them for grazing. The cows grazed the whole day without moving unlike other days. They enjoyed the dried yellow grasses as green grasses!
