Set your “PRIORITIES”…………

WHEN  I become free from my work…….., I use to watch inspirational movies. one day I saw in a HOLLYWOOD movie, A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else. The small stuff.”
“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.

Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

हे मनु के वंशज, तुम कब सुधरोगे?

जो छुपा ले गरीब के गम को,
हमने तो वो इंसान नहीं देखे..!!
कैसे जाती है बात घर से बाहर,
हमने तो दीवार के कान नहीं देखे..!!
मिटा दे जो सदियों की दुश्मनी दिलो से,
हमने तो वो गीता वो कुरान नहीं देखे..!!
अरे अभी भी संभल जाओ बद-दिमागों,
दावा करो होश की,
क्या सब के सर एक ही आसमान नहीं देखे..!!
न पकाओ नफरत की आग पे स्वार्थ की रोटी,इंसानियत रहने दो,
इस आग में जलते हुए मकान नहीं देखे..!!

‘‘अठारह वर्ष से कम उम्र के बच्चों को तम्बाकू या तम्बाकू से बने पदार्थ बेचना दंडनीय अपराध है।’’शहर में पान की दुकानों पर यह तख़्ती लगी थी। स्कूल के छोकरे सिगरेट पीना चाह रहे थे।
‘‘ओए, जा ले आ सिगरेट।’’
‘‘मैं नहीं जाता। पान वाला नहीं देगा।’’
‘‘अबे, कह देना, पापा ने मँगाई है।’’
‘‘स्कूल में.....?’’
‘‘चलो, शाम को नुक्कड़ पर मिलेंगे।’’
‘‘ठीक है।’’
.............
‘‘भइया, एक सिगरेट का पैकेट देना। हाँ, गुटखा भी।’’
‘‘बच्चे, तुम तो बहुत छोटे हो। तुम्हें नहीं मिल सकता।’’
‘‘अंकल, मेरे पापा ने मंगवाई है। ये लो पैसे।’’
‘‘ओह! तुम तो शुक्ला साब के बेटे हो।’’
पान वाले ने सहर्ष उसे सामान दे दिया।
कुछ दिन बाद....।
‘‘राम–राम शुक्ला जी।’’
‘‘लीजिए साब। आजकल बेटे से बहुत सिगरेट मँगाने लगे हो। हर रोज शाम को आ जाता है।’’
सुनकर शुक्ला साब के हाथ से सिगरेट छूट गई......।
