Enjoy The Coffee!

Sunday, February 24, 2008


Friends,this is a famous story which many of you must have read earlier somewhere.What’s more important is the moral of the story.Please read carefully…

A group of alumni of a reputed college, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for each of you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other’s cups. Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn’t change. Some times, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it.”

So, don’t let only the cups drive you… enjoy the coffee!!!!!!

“Your life is not defined only by what all you do,where you are,your possessions,your social image,n blah blah,what’s most important is the coffee,the quality of life!Always take care that your personal happiness is above everything,so always stay merry,stay cheerful,smile always!”

It’s the small cheerful things in life which matter…So Live Life King Size!
On a passing note,I want to say[couldn’t control my temptation 🙂 ],isn’t there a lot to learn from ‘Munna’ of Rangeela?Certainly there is… 😉
