Murthyabout Stress Management Bye till next week.. Rtn. Raghavendra Thank You The True Life Partner Once upon a time, there was a rich merchant whohad 4 wives. He loved his fourth wife the most, becauseshe was the most beautiful one amongst his other wives,and gave her a lot of his riches and wealth. This man was very proud of his third wife and alwaystried to introduce her to all his friends, though he wasalways worried if his wife would run away with other guy.He loved his second wife very much, because she waspatient and understanding. Whenever he had aproblem, he always asked for her opinion; she was theone he could rely on. Through difficult times, the secondwife always helped and was always by her husbandsside. His first wife was a faithful partner. She alwaysbrought goodness for the family. She was the one whotook care and organized her husbands business.Unfortunately, the merchant did not love her that much.Although the first wife loved the merchant so much, hedid not really care about her. One day, the merchant was very sick and realizedthat he was going to die soon; so he called for all hiswives. He asked his fourth wife, You are the one I lovethe most, I gave you beautiful dresses and jewelleries.Would you accompany me? His wife was stuck shut, then she answered him, Of course I wouldnt! thenshe left without another word. That answer hurt themerchants heart so much. Then, he asked his third wife,I too love you with all my heart and, this time, my life willbe over. Would you go with me? The wife answered,Life is so beautiful here, I will marry again if you die.The merchant was very struck with her saying. Again, he asked his second wife, I always turned toyou every time I have problems and you always helpedme. Now, I really need your help. If I die, would you standbeside me? The wife quietly answered, Please forgiveme, she said, I cannot help you this time. I can only seeto your grave. However, Ill make a beautiful burial plotfor you. The answer was like a striking lightning. Themerchant felt so hopeless. Suddenly, he heard a voice,I will stay with you. Ill go wherever you go. I wont leaveyou; Ill be faithful to you. The merchant looked to hisside and saw his first wife there. She looked so thin, likea person in starvation. Feeling very sorry, the merchantwhispered, If only I could take care of you while I could,you would not look like this, my wife. ~~~~~ </li> <li> 3. 3 14-3-2012 A NITE TO REMEMBER Much is already commented in FB, about theAcoustics, Golf Club, etc. All credit to the evening andits Master, Rock, for carrying the program with greatinnovation which induced inquest.
