The Choice

I REMEMBER...

Once in my third standard a boy was punished for stealing another student’s chocolate. The teacher had asked him to stretch his hands. He did. In one he was holding onto the half eaten chocolate while the other was open. The teacher boxed his ears and hit the open hand hard with a stick. And still the boy had smiled.


I HAVE REALIZED...

Whenever life gives us a chocolate in one hand it simultaneously hits our other hand hard. And it’s our choice (simple?) what we want to focus on: the pain generated by the stick or the pleasure of getting a chocolate.

Hi. I haven't read this post and I'm sorry. I just saw the address on the cover page of your book. A book that picked up randomly at a book store.

I have been reading it since then and to be really frank, I fell in love with it.

I haven't completed it but will do it tonight I guess. 12th is a tricky class.

But really, commendable book.I hate It everytime I have to leave it in the middle.

Hope to see your other books soon :)

And as I said, I finished reading it yesterday.

Amazing.

That is all. It is like a wirlwind of emotions. Love is a very deseptive word and so is realization. You actually explained the meaning of both.

Loved it. Truly.
