My blog took its birth on 3rd May 2008 and from then till date, it has not changed its looks... I was intending to do a makeover for a long time now! And, today is the day!

Don’t Change the World  

Posted by NoeL in


Here is a little story which I got from the 'ever inspiring' Pravs World. I loved it. Read it below.

Once upon a time, there was a king who ruled a prosperous country. One day, he went for a trip to some distant areas of his country.

When he was back to his palace, he complained that his feet were very painful, because it was the first time that he went for such a long trip, and the road that he went through was very rough and stony. He then ordered his people to cover every road of the entire country with leather. Definitely, this would need thousands of cows’ skin, and would cost a huge amount of money.

Then one of his wise servant dared himself to tell the king, “Why do you have to spend that unnecessary amount of money ? Why don’t you just cut a little piece of leather to cover your feet?”

The king was surprised, but he later agreed to his suggestion, to make a “shoe” for himself.

There is actually a valuable lesson of life in this story:

“To make this world a happy place to live, you better change yourself - your heart; and not the world.”
