Happiness when shared, is doubled

 

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up on his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain off fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had o spend all his time flat on his back.

These men became friends and they talked for hours on end.

They talked of their wives,children,homes,jobs,and what not.

Every afternoon,when the man on the bed by the window,could sit up, he would pass his time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man on the other bed began to live for those one hour periods,everyday,where his world would be enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour. Thus a fine view of the city skyline could be seen at the distance.

As the man by the window described all the exquisite details ,the other man would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

Days ,weeks and months passed.

One morning the nurse arrived to bring water for the bath of the two patients. She was awestricken to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take away the body.

In the meanwhile the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse did the same.

Slowly the man managed to get a view out of the window. But he was surprised to find a blank wall outside. Out of curiosity , he asked the nurse what could have compelled the deceased man, to describe such wonderful things outside this window, which actually do not exist.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said humbly, “perhaps he just wanted to encourage you”.

What is deduced from this incidence???

Is it strong enough to through some impact on us?

Well it is genuine, that you get tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite your own situations. And this is the best modesty one can do.

“shared grief is half the sorrow; but ,

Happiness when shared, is doubled”.

We have so many sharing media today, why to refrain yourself from sharing? Try to bring smile on other’s faces, you will find your wrinkles vanished.

The real controller of humans…is the virtual world.

These days the supreme controller of the human being is no one else but the technology.

In today’s time if one is so much attached to anything then it is his or her virtual possessions. Or you may say that those possessions can be his mobile phone ,tablet, laptop, i-pad, computer, smart watch, and Google glass.

And at the same time if the human is afraid of anything then again it’s the same virtual possessions. For example today one is not afraid of losing, gold and silver, or property that much but loosing “Facebook password” or “g-mail account” , failing to update his tweets, etc….. it sounds funny but it is perhaps true.

The virtual world is everything to us. We ourselves have moved to it. Today if one has a time to spare ,after spending exhausting hours at his workplace, he wishes to relax and log into to his Facebook account, whats app, twitter, we chat etc to check the notifications. One important thing to notice is that people remember to log out of the professional sites, even the e-mail account, but they do not wish to log out of their social sites. Strange !!! but true. Youngsters are so much concerned about their privacy today that they fight with their parents for a separate room. Why??? It’s not just that they have to continue with their friends on phone call for hours, speaking aloud. But to enter the virtual world. Today even the couples don’t want to talk for so long on mobiles , instead they want to hangout on so many options like Whats app, Google+, Facebook messenger and so many others.

One can forget to wish “good morning” to their teachers or parents but never forget to write on wall of the facebook to wish their friends. Time has come to this happening also that today the employees drop a message of good morning to their bosses. Just to leave an impact that how much punctual they are, no matter via virtual world.

It’s funny that one can sleep without a pillow but not without their mobile sets under their pillow.

If parents ask their children as to what they want as a present for their birthday …they immediately say a smart phone or a tablet, instead of any other gifts.

Even the elders are not behind in showing their eagerness towards adapting to this virtual world. They might not replace their clothes, shoes, or carry bags etc but they can’t resist themselves from replacing their smart phones with the latest versions. This is the transformation.

Now it is important for us to consider that how we are actually utilizing our time in this virtual world. Because time gone cannot be reverted in real life.

THE ADVANCEMENT ……IS GOOD AT TIMES

Time passes on so quickly. If we look around we can see and perceive that how time has changed everything. What was once the need of the time today has been replaced by its advanced model. This is the era of technology that has encapsulated us all. I was just cleaning my store room one day, and was amazed to find something before my eyes, and it was nothing new and unique but an old piece of telephone set.

Remember ? those big and heavy boxes which had a mouthpiece for answering and receiving calls. I just cleaned it up and carried away with me to my room. For few seconds i was just staring at its every part as if i was looking at it for the first time.

Well i just want to say that gone are the days when talking to someone over a telephone was not that easy as it is today with our smart phones. I remember there was just one phone set in my house. And it was a craze at that times to call someone even without the necessity. And wait for hours so that it rings.

It was not possible to maintain the utmost privacy in those times, because it was not a mobile device. But there are many interesting experiences of those days with the landline sets.

When so many people are sitting in the living room, almost your complete family,busy gossiping, and at time when you are anxious about the phone call.

We could not anticipate ,this was the biggest drawback in those days. So as soon as the phone rings…..every body turns around to receive it. And you feel to run to it quickly so that no one else should receive it….this was funny!!!

And when you attend a call in rush, you are a bit perplexed. And you don’t get word to speak out. Amazing were those days ,when one had to talk to his /her friend,and every body was staring at the phone,so curious to lknow what was going on. And weused to repeat the same words like “ yeah everything is fine here…..i m good, i have done my work…..fine will do that……” and so many such common phrases.

Perhaps this was the only time for many of us to talk to a friend(may be a girlfriend/boyfriend) about studies and all, but unwillingly, because everyone else in the surroundings was keeping an ear and eye at us.

Another interesting part was when there were several blank calls given through these sets. And these calls are attended by our elders. It was the most difficult situation, when our expressions did wonders. At such situations we felt most of the times “ why is it ringing now only?” remember there was not a vibrator mode at that times. Thank god for the technological advances !!!

We also could not change our numbers in those days to get rid of those unwanted calls. How tedious was life I wonder.

Then i took out my mobile phone in my hand and kissed it deliberately and thanked to technology . My words were “ who discovered this mobile device,,,,, thanks to him/her” .

Today life is entirely different as we all know. Privacy is maintained and we are just used to it. I am sure nobody will like to go back to that era of landline telephone, in today’s life. Just IMPOSSIBLE !!!!

So this is the changing time……which has brought so many rigorous transformations in our daily life that we have become accustomed to it, we don’t want to go back. One has to change with the changing times…..!!!
