A beautiful speech by Sundar Pichai – an IIT-MIT Alumnus:
The cockroach theory for self development
At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and
sat on a lady.
She started screaming out of fear.
With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started
jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the
Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but …it
landed on another lady in the group.
Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue
The waiter rushed forward to their rescue.
In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter.
The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the
behavior of the cockroach on his shirt.
When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and
threw it out of the restaurant.
Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of
my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was
the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behavior?
If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed?
He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.
It is not the cockroach, but the inability of those people to handle
the disturbance caused by the cockroach, that disturbed the
I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or
my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the
disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.
It’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my
inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that
More than the problem, it’s my reaction to the problem that
creates chaos in my life.
Lessons learnt from the story:
I understood, I should not react in life.
I should always respond.
The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always
well thought of.
A beautiful way to understand…………LIFE.
Person who is HAPPY is not because Everything is RIGHT in his
He is HAPPY because his Attitude towards Everything in his Life
Family is the only place
where we are accepted with
all the drawbacks..!
“The Importance of Life..
The Unity & Trust of the Family”
Maintain your relationship in life

All the matters is to stay connected.
Ego and Love
Are the Branches
of the same tree,
Just the difference is,
Love always wants
to Say Sorry, and
Ego always wants
to Hear it…..
There was a bird who lived in a desert, very sick, no feathers, nothing to eat and drink, no shelter to live in. One day a dove was passing by, so the sick unhappy bird stopped the dove and inquired “where are you going?” it replied ” I am going to heaven”.
So the sick bird said “please find out for me, when my suffering will come to an end?” The dove said, “sure, I will.” and bid a good bye to the sick bird. The dove reached heaven and shared the message of the sick bird with the angel incharge at the entrance gate.
The angel said, “For the next seven years of its life the bird has to suffer like this, no happiness till then.”
The dove said, “When the sick bird hears this he will get disheartened. could you suggest any solution for this.”
The Angel replied, “Tell him to recite this verse “Thank you God for everything.” The dove on meeting the sick bird again, delivered the message of the angel to it .
After seven days the dove was again passing by and saw that bird was very happy, feathers grew on his body, a small plant grew up in the desert area, a small pond of water was also there, the bird was singing and dancing cheerfully. The dove was astonished. The Angel had said that there would be no happiness for the bird for the next seven years. With this question in mind the dove went to visit the angel at heaven’s gate.
The dove put forth his query to the Angel. The Angel replied, “yes it is true there was no happiness for the bird for seven years but because the bird was reciting the verse “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING” in every situation, his life changed.
When the bird fell down on the hot sand it said “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”
When it could not fly it said, “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”
When it was thirsty and there was no water around, it said, “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”
Whatever the situation, the bird kept on repeating, “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING” and therefore the seven years got dissolved in seven days.
When I heard this story, I felt a tremendous shift in my way of feeling, thinking, accepting and viewing life.
I adopted this verse in my life. WHATEVER the situation I faced I started reciting this verse “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”. It helped me to shift my view from what i did not have to what i have in my life.
For instance; if my head aches I THANK GOD that the rest of my body is completely fine and healthy and I notice that the headache does not bother me at all.
In the same manner i started using this verse in my relationships (whether family, friends, neighbours, colleagues ) finances, social life, business and everything with which I can relate. I shared this story with everyone I came in touch with and it brought a great shift in their behaviour too.
This simple verse really had a deep impact on my life, i started feeling how blessed I am, how happy I am, how good life is.
The purpose of sharing this message is to make all of us aware of how powerful the “ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE” is. It can reshape our lives…!!!
Lets recite this verse continuously to experience the shift in our life.
So be grateful, and see the change in your attitude.
Be humble, and you will never stumble.
– REMEMBER! “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”
If you put money and bananas in front of a monkey. it would choose bananas because it doesn’t know that money can buy bananas.
When you put happiness and money in front of humans they opt for money because they don’t that money can’t buy happiness.
…Short Inspirational Story …
I have heard about a man who remained unmarried his whole life, and when he was dying, ninety years old, somebody asked him, “You have remained unmarried your whole life, but you have never said what the reason was. Now you are dying, at least quench our curiosity. If there is any secret, now you can tell it, because you are dying; you will be gone. Even if the secret is known, it can’t harm you.”
The man said, “Yes, there is a secret. It is not that I am against marriage, but I was searching for a perfect woman. I searched and searched, and my whole life slipped by.”
The inquirer asked, “But upon this big earth, so many millions of people, half of them women, couldn’t you find one perfect woman?”
A tear rolled down from the eye of the dying man. He said, “Yes, I did find one.”
The inquirer was absolutely shocked. He said, “Then what happened? Why didn’t you get married?”
And the old man said, “But the woman was searching for a perfect husband.

Someone asked How to develop our personality ?
Answer : you have to spend five days to have these five experiences to really blossom your personality in life.
You have to play SINCERELY these five roles:
1. The first role which I would recommend to you is to be a School Teacher.
Being a nursery or primary school teacher, even for one day, you will see how you have to increase your patience.
2. Be a Gardener or spend a day with a Farmer.
You will value food and you will not waste food.
You know, what we do?
3. You should spend a day in the mental hospital
Whatever people talk in the mental hospital, you don’t mind.
If they scold you,
if they blame you,
if they curse you,
will you mind?
You don’t mind because you are aware that this person is mentally sick.
You know that many people are outside the hospital, but that does not mean they are mentally well.
So, in life, you come across people who blame you for nothing, who are jealous or angry, who say things that make no sense. Then, you know, you will have the patience to deal with them with a smile.
4. One day you must go to a prison. Maybe it is shocking to you.
You don’t have to do a wrong thing to go to a prison.
Just go visit a prison, spend a little time with the prisoners.
You will understand what compassion is.
What helplessness is.
Those people did a mistake without awareness.
So you will know how you must have a say on your emotions.
5. There are terminally ill people in the hospital
One day with them, and you will realize how precious life is.
And you will start valuing health.
You will eat better,
you will exercise.
You will do all that is needed to be more vibrant in your life.
I guess from these five days you will become
More Vibrant, More Alive, More Loving, Compassionate and Active.🌹
Five types of people to surround yourself with:
1. The inspired
2. The passionate
3. The motivated
4. The grateful
5. The open-minded📚📚
Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others’ prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.

The sea is same for all
Some find pearls,
Some find fishes,
Some just find there feet wet,
Life is common for all but
we can only get what we try for.
If the pressure in life are crushing
you down, think of the crushed
flowers. They produce the best perfume.
Let the pressures in life bring out
the best in you.
Life is like a camera…
Focus on what’s important,
Capture the good times,
Develop from the negatives, and if things don’t turn out,
Take another shot.
Be in the present moment.
Force yourself to focus on what’s really important in your life – your family, friends, health and the rest.
Being in the here and now is the only truth.
When you feel better about all of that, you’ll be more productive in your career, your business and how you handle your customers, colleagues and employees.
You don’t want regrets in life looking back and realizing that you missed the best time of your existence.
Patience & Silence Are Powerful Energies.
Patience Makes You Mentally Strong.
Silence Makes You Emotionally Strong.
The industrialist was horrified to find the fisherman lying beside his boat, chilling a pipe.
“Why aren’t you fishing? ” asked the industrialist.
“Because I’ve caught enough fish for the day.”
“Why don’t you catch some more?”
“What would I do with them?”
“Earn more money. Then you could have a motor fixed to your boat and go into deeper waters and catch more fish. That would bring you money to buy nylon nets, so more fish, more money. Soon you would have enough to buy two boats, even a fleet of boats, then you could be rich like me.”
“What would I do then?”
“Then you could sit back and enjoy life.”
“What do you think I’m doing now?”

5 Little Stories About The True Power Of Love
1- Today, two days after my partner’s funeral, I received a bouquet of flowers which he had ordered for me the week before. The note read, “Even if the cancer wins, I want you to know that you’re the girl of my dreams.”
2-Today I won a court case that lasted a very long time. 14 months ago, I found out that my neighbour regularly beat his dog. So, I kidnapped it, and I was arrested. I spent a lot of money on the trial, but today, when I woke up and felt the warmth of my shaggy friend at my feet, I knew it had all been worth it.
3- My daughter came home from school and asked me where she could learn sign language. I asked her why she wanted to, and she replied that there was a new girl at her school who was deaf and only knew sign language, and she had no one to talk to.
4-Today, I chose the wrong number and accidentally sent my dad a message saying “I love you, “which was meant for my husband. A few minutes later I got a reply:” I love you too. Dad.” It was so touching. We say things like that to each other so rarely.
5- My grandfather and I were looking through some photographs when we stumbled upon an old shot of him dancing at a party with my grandmother, who had died several years before. He put his arm around me and said, “Always remember that even if something doesn’t last forever, it doesn’t mean that it’s not worth your time.”
I liked the story no. 5 the most. Which one you liked?
