The Power of Speech

Thursday, 11th December 2014

A group of frogs were travelling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The
two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down
and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the
other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

This story teaches two lessons:

1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.

2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill them.     

Overcoming prejudice

Wednesday, 3rd December 2014


It was a partial cloudy day with little drizzling in the air. I stood at a road side waiting for a cab so I could go to the Railway Station. Everything was going on just the way it was when suddenly I felt a voice beside me; it was a boy with tattered clothes and a face that surely seemed like it was never washed at all. I felt so abhorrent at that moment that I literally tried to pull myself away from that little boy.

The boy kept following me shouting out "Bhaiya! Bhaiya (Big Brother! Big Brother!) but I was too obstinate to answer him at all. My inner self was cursing the country for its poor conditions, those unhealthy little people that we all see sleeping on the pavements - as homeless as they could be.  Always begging for money - it all kept creating a fuss inside my mind, making me feel more reluctant to answer that dirty little boy who kept calling out to me. "Bhaiya! Bhaiya!" I heard him call out again. This further exacerbated my anger at the little kid, and the people of his kind.

Then finally after a few minutes of maddening summons from the little kid - I shouted at him that I had no money to spare him. And the boy without even bothering to hear my words of despair, said to me, "Bhaiya, can you please help me cross the road?"

That moment I couldn't feel my legs. The sudden feeling of mortification had engulfed me from within. Was this how I had become? Had Pride and Prejudice engulfed me to such a level that I judged that little boy to beg for money and food?

I held the boy's hand firmly, and I helped him cross the road. This was the first time that I didn't have the feeling of disgust or distaste that he might not have taken a bath for days or weeks. That successful act of assistance created a new hope inside me. I realised that our being judgemental would surely create a devastating effect unless we overcome it.

Reach for the stars

Wednesday, 22nd October 2014

In the book "Reaching the Stars" by Ruchoma Shain, the following story is told:

Mrs. Shain was a general studies teacher in a Jewish school, teaching 1st grade. There was a child named Ruthie in her class whose parents were immigrants from Hungary. Ruthie's father, a bricklayer, had fallen off of a scaffold and injured his spine. He was confined to a wheelchair. Her mother with the burden of caring for the family singlehandedly, suffered a breakdown and was hospitalized. The children were shunted between relatives and friend, their lives falling apart in front of them. This young child, suffering and confused, came to school every day, but never spoke a word. Every attempt to coax the child out of her shell met with failure. Toward the spring Ruthie still had not uttered a word in class. During a game, the children were sitting on the floor near the radiator. Mrs. Shain noticed a puddle growing under Ruthie, and she knew what would happen to Ruthie if the other girls became aware that she had had an accident. The embarrassment would be a death blow to the child. The children were absorbed in their game and had not yet discovered what had occured. Mrs. Shain rapped on her desk with her ruler, and got everyone back to their seats. "The radiator is leaking badly and causing a puddle on the floor, and so you should get ready for dismissal." Mrs Shain never lied to her students, but in this case she made an exception. Another few minutes and the children were gone. The door opened and there stood Ruthie. "Uh... Uh... Mrs. Shain," she whispered. Those were her only words. Then Ruthie took Mrs Shain's hand, kissed it, and fled from the room.

When the opportunity presents itself, we should even try to prevent people from becoming aware of other's mistakes, shortcomings, and personality flaws.
