Hi friends,the advent of technology was to bring respite to our lives. On the contrary, we seem to be moving at a more frenetic pace than ever before. The TRICHY PLUS team is more ecstatic than ever. My daughter Ms.Sagarikka has gone berserk after her 10th and my wife Ms.Savitri, radiant as ever with her “broken back”.
With this phantasmagoric life, we would like to share essences and snap-shots before they fade away. We will be sharing in our blog, our experiences and our understanding of people, life, body, mind & the human spirit. In these 17 years journey of TRICHY PLUS, we have come across many gems & rathnas, who have had a deep impact in our life.
We will bring you stories of our students who took the “Road less traveled” and the fortitude of women who made a difference to the lives of people in Trichy.
Nice Story : A man went to Guruji and asked, “What’s the value of life?” Guruji gave him one stone and said, “Find out the value of this stone, but don’t sell it.” The man took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what its cost would be. The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, “You ca take 12 oranges and give me the stone.” The man apologized and said that the guru has asked him not to sell it. He went ahead and found a vegetable seller. “What could be the value of this stone?” he asked the vegetable seller. The seller saw the shiny stone and said, “Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone.” The man again apologized and said he can’t sell it. Further ahead, he went into a jewelery shop and asked the value of the stone. The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, “I’ll give you 50 Lakhs for this stone.” When the man shook his head, the jeweler said, “Alright, alright, take 2 crores, but give me the stone.” The man explained that he can’t sell the stone. Further ahead, the man saw a precious stone’s shop and asked the seller the value of this stone. When the precious stone’s seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a red cloth and put the ruby on it. Then he walked in circles around the ruby and bent down and touched his head in front of the ruby. “From where did you bring this priceless ruby from?” he asked. “Even if I sell the whole world, and my life, I won’t be able to purchase this priceless stone. Stunned and confused, the man returned to the guru and told him what had happened. “Now tell me what is the value of life, guru ji?” Guru said, “The answers you got from the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the Jeweler & the Precious Stone’s Seller explain the value of our life… You may be a precious stone, even priceless, but people will value you based on their financial status, their level of information, their belief in you, their motive behind entertaining you, their ambition, and their risk taking ability. But don’t fear, you will surely find someone who will discern your true value.” Therefore Respect yourself, You are Unique. No one is like you.
