At some time or the other we all have spent some time and wondered to ourselves about how things change as we grow up! Haven't we? I was enjoying few such moments myself and i somehow overheard someone address his friend as a 'donkey'! N dat sent my thoughts running towards an altogether different direction. All of us as kids have had a particular animal as a favourite. Mostly with the boys it was one of the wild animals. The Lion, Tiger, Cheetah, Elephant... so on and so forth. Girls went mostly with the cuter ones. Dogs, cats, rabbits, cows etc. Mainly the basis of choosing was either power, speed, magnificience, beauty and other attractive qualities. But i had a favourite which til date, i haven't met a single person with my same choice! Care to guess??? It's the DONKEY! Yeah.... the 'hee-haw' one! I bet most of you (Out of the very few who read my blog :-P) let out a small laugh at this. Natural! I get that 'DONKEEEEEY???!' expression each time i ve told someone.
I got a lil curious and searched for some quotes on donkeys.And most with the word 'donkey' involved using them in a negative manner.I found just one quote in it's favor and found it to be Indian. N m really happy to say dat India is really one country where the old scriptures teach us to learn something good from each creature and every thing around! Every thing in this world, however inisignificant it might look, always has something significant, something good to share to this world!
“To carry his load without resting, not to be bothered by heat or cold and always be content: these three things we can learn from a donkey”.
I feel proud to say my favourite animal is a DONKEY. Not outta sympathy or pity, but because i respect donkeys and have learnt a lesson from them.The miracle i realised today is the 'thought' of a donkey that came to me! I've learnt no creature, no thing in this world can be looked down upon. Learn to recognise and respect and value the good in everyone! So next time, someone calls you a donkey, you know what to say! Don't you? No, it's not an insult.Take it as a compliment! For starters... hey guys, I am a donkey! Say heeeee-hawwww! :D
As i always say,
Believe in miracles......because, Miracles Happen!
