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

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!

Moment of Redemption

...During my university days, one of my professors told me the story of an eagle. It is said that the eagle lives for over 70 years.   But during its 40 th year, it has to make some hard decisions.   Its long and flexible talons can no longer grab its prey. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. Its old, aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then, the eagle is left with only two options: either to die or go through a painful process of change which lasts for over six months. The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountaintop and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back. Then it will pluck out its talons The talons are what an eagle uses to catch food. To pluck them out would not only be extremely difficult and painful, but would also take away their ability to provide food for themselves. When it's new
