AIR, LIGHT & RAIN
Unexpected turns only make the Life interesting.
There was a farmer.He was fighting with the God.
"What do you know about crops? You are sending rain whenever you are thinking, sending the wind at the wrong time.You become a nuisance.It is better you handover your duties to a farmer!".
God said immediately, "O.k. Hereafter, Light, Rain, Wind all will be in your control", Gave a Boon and gone.
Farmer was so happy.Then came the next season.
"Hey Rain,Pour" he commanded and it rained.when he said stop,it stopped.He ploughed the wet land.After making the wind at a normal speed, he sow the seeds.
Rain, Light, Wind were obedient to his words.The crop was so green. The field looked so good.
Then came the harvest season.Farmer cut open a paddy,to his shock, nothing was there inside.He tried cut open one by one all the other crops, but all were empty.
He called God "Hey God!", "I used the Rain, Light, Wind all of them at a right ratio only,why the crops got spoiled?".
God smiled and said "When i had the control, wind was very fast.Then, all the crops sent their roots deep into the earth, just like a child embracing mother.Whenever there was a shortage of water, the crops would send their roots to all different directions for water.If there is a struggle, then only crops will protect themselves and grow strong.since everything was perfect,your crops became lazy.they grow god,but they didn't know how to produce a good crop."
"I don't want your rain or wind! keep it with yourselves" told the farmer and returned them to God.
Yes,if life is a smooth ride,it will be empty.Whenever you face problems,then only your talent will come out.
Challenges will make a human as a whole being.
