My Diwali greetings to u all. In this festive occasion I would like to share something to u which I have received from my cousin brother from Vizag thro e mail. It really touched my heart and made me to think a lot about it. So I thought of sharing this with all my good and kind hearted blog friends.
It was a sports stadium.
8 Children were standing on the track to participate in the running event.
* Ready! * Steady! * Bang!!!
With the sound of a toy pistol, all the eight participating girls started running.
Hardly had they covered 10 to 15 steps, when one of the youngest girls slipped and fell down,Due to bruises and pain she was crying.
When the other 7 girls heard her, they stopped running, stood for a while and looked back; they all ran back to the fallen girl.
One amongst them bent, picked and kissed the girl gently and enquired,'Now your pain must have reduced, is it ok?'
All the 7 girls lifted this girl, pacified her; 2 of them held the girl firmly, and then all 7 joined hands and walked together and reached the winning post.
Officials were shocked, even as clapping of thousands of spectators filled the stadium.
Many eyes were filled with tears and perhaps it had even reached GOD!
YES, this happened in Hyderabad [ INDIA ], recently!
The sport was conducted by National Institute of Mental Health.
All these special girls had come to participate in this event and they are Spastic children.
Yes, they were mentally retarded and Challenged.
What did they teach this world?
Teamwork?Humanity?Equality among all?????
Successful people help others who are slow in learning so that they are not left far behind.
We can't do this ever, because we have brain!!!!!!!!!
