No Matter What, I Will Always Be There For You! – FATHER

This is a True Story based on earthquake in 1989.

In 1989, an 8.2 (on Richter scale) earthquake almost flattened Armenia, killing over 30,000 people in less than four minutes. In the midst of chaos, a father left his home and rushed to the school where he had left his son that morning. Only to discover that the building had been totally destroyed.

The father remembered the promise he had made to his son

‘no matter what, I will always be there for you!’

Tears began to fill his eyes as he looked at the pile of debris that once was his son’s school.

He began to concentrate on where he walked his son to class that morning. Remembering that his son’s classroom would be in a particular spot, he rushed there and started digging through the rubble.

Other parents who had gathered told him that he was wasting his time and energy, but the father would only say, “Are you going to help me?” and carry on digging.

The fire chief showed up and tried to pull him off the debris saying, “You are in danger. We will take care of it. You go home.” To which the Armenian father’s response was, “Are you going to help me find my son?”

The police came and urged the man to give up. But the distraught father courageously proceeded alone, because he needed to know for himself ‘is my boy alive or is he dead? He dug and pulled back boulder after boulder for thirty-eight hours non-stop and suddenly when he was pulling a boulder he heard his son’s voice.

“ARMOND, are you there?” He responded, “Dad, it is me, Dad! I told my friends that if my Dad is alive we would be saved! I told them you had promised me — no matter what, I will always be there for you! You did it, Dad!”

“What is going on there son?” the father asked. “We are fourteen of us, Dad. We are scared, hungry, thirsty, and thankful you are here. When the building collapsed, it made a wedge, like a triangle, and it saved fourteen of us!” The son explained.

“Come out my boy!” “No Dad! Let the other kids out first, cause I know you will get me! No matter what, /i know you’ll be there for me!”

The fireman, the police and the crowd could not believe what they saw! The man whom they had considered as traumatized with anxiety and fear was actually responding to love and was pulling one boy after another until he pulled out and embraced the 14th boy, his son Armond!

Moral: Indeed genuine love can never be understood by human measurements. God cannot be measured, God is Love! If human love can at times give us an inkling of what love is all about, what marvel God’s love for us must be! Love is patient, love is kind. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Love never fails..

Peace of Mind is not a Tough Job

The true story of the followers of Buddha. What he taught to his followers.

Once Buddha was traveling with a few of his followers. While they were passing a lake, Buddha told one of his followers, I am thirsty. Do get me some water from the lake.

The follower walked up to the lake. At that moment, an ox cart crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy.

The follower thought, How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink?

So he came back and told Buddha, The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink.

After about half an hour, again Buddha asked the same follower to go back to the lake.

The follower went back and found that the water was still muddy. He returned and informed Buddha about the same.

After some time, again Buddha asked the same follower to go back.

This time, the follower found the mud had settled down, and the water was clean and clear. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the follower and said, See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be, and the mud settled down on its own, and you have clear water.”

Your mind is like that too! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.”

Having ‘Peace of Mind’ is not a tough job, it is an effortless process so keep ur mind cool and have a great life ahead…

Master (k) Masterpiece

Write about your first name: Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself?

The day which I grown up, at the maturity level I hate my name. (My name is Sathish) Didn’t get my name after anyone and no stories associated as well.

I do want to change my name with a letter “R”. So I’d like to change my name as “Rajni”. Just like it and its with “R”…

When I told to my parents they were unhappy to hear this. they are not ready to change my name. That has been move as big issue I scolded everyone. Then my mother told me a story behind my name, my name is the logo of future. The name which represents the power of succeed and honest. My grandpa was the man who honest and succeed of his whole life he made his way. he is innocent to poor he helped them. Everyone salute him and Pride him. That name has to replaced to me.

After I knew all this, I used to wonder why they gave me a short and uncommon name. But now that there is a story behind it, I feel good about it.

If I could rename myself, I wouldn’t take it. I mean, after hearing the story, I realized how much thought they put into it and it’s exciting for any parent. I myself think of that even when I personally don’t want to have one. Now I’ll embrace this name all the way. 🙂
