Happy learning to you all.
Let me tell you a little story of a rich Goan landlord who once asked his parish priest-- 'Why does everybody call me stingy when everyone knows that when I die I will leave everything I have to this church?'
The priest said; 'There once was a pig and a cow in this village. The pig was unpopular and the cow was loved by all in the village. This puzzled the pig. The pig said to the cow, 'people speak warmly of your good nature and your helpful attitude. They think you are very generous because each day you give them milk, butter and cheese. But… What about me? I give them everything I have. I give them the famous Goa sausages, bacon and ham. I also provide ingredients for mouth-watering sorpotel. Yet no one likes me. Why is that?'
The priest continued: ' Do you know what the cow answered? '
The Cow said, ' Perhaps it's because I give while I am still living.'
Employers should read this story and understand that if they appriciate their employees when they are still working with them is worth rather than remembering their good work when they r left ...

Really this is a very valuable lesson - that till the time we are on this earth we know that what we give will be valuable, useful and for the benefit of manking, but after we leave this universe - whatever maybe the value of service we render will not really be counted as good deeds.
This teaches us to share and love - when animals can do it why cant we???
