No matter how vulnerable one is, one often searches for a more vulnerable person to blame for one's own inadequacies. Given the economic stress, many small entrepreneurs face enormous challenges in the market place. It is not easy to get payment on time for supplies made. In the light of everrising expectations of the clients, the quality control also requires considerable attention. Some of the problems are inherent in the processes and materials used for manufacturing different devices or components. In various meetings, it was common to hear small entrepreneurs blaming workers for leaving for better pastures after they were trained. It was alleged that they did not work hard, they were unwilling to learn and so on. It seemed that a large number of problems of small enterprises owed their origin to the rising aspirations of the workers and inability or the unwillingness of the entrepreneurs to meet those. read more

Once we approach the summer, cool breeze will set in. The moist breeze compels the male weaver birds to build compels the male weaver birds to build nests over wells and in the branches of dry tall trees, like the goddess Durga, the female weaver bird will come and inspect the nest; if not to her taste, she will destroy it and the male bird has to build the nest all over again. No matter how many colours he adoms himself with to lure her to his nest, it is not just his dress that she pays attention to. read more

Title - Why do Some Trees Disappear?

\"Why do some trees disappear?” Sonam asked his teacher. It was a beautiful, sunny morning and the teacher had taken the class to a monastery. His students were not surprised because the teacher would often take them out for a walk in the woods or along the river. This morning, the teacher had given them a giant task. He had asked them to bring their foot rulers and measure the length and breadth of the monastery. It was just a few more metres away, on the top of the mountain. The children ran towards the walls of the building and all of them started measuring from different ends. read more

Once there was a good old man who lived up on a mountain, far away in Japan. all round his little house the moutain was flat, and the ground was rich: and there were the rice fields of all the peple who lived in the village at the foot of the mountain. Every morning and evening, the old man and his little grandson, who lived with him, used to look far down on the people at work in the village, and watch the blue sea which lay all round the land, so close that there was no room for fields below, only for houses. The little boy loved the rice fields, dearly, for he know that all the good food for all the prople came from theml; and he often helped his grandgather to watch over them read more

I had to write a cover story and somehow no intriguing story was coming to my mind. Tired of thinking, I went to bed. In my dreams, I saw that the five fingers of my hand, which normally shared a warm friendship, got into a serious argument. Of course, the subject is the same old one that has been plaguing all living things since the dawn of time -who is the biggest of them all. The thumb responded first with a contemptuous look on its face and with a perceptible sneer wondering why there should be an argument at all about it. “Without me”, the thumb said, “you all are powerless. Try doing anything without my support and you will know!” The middle finger laughed out loud at this statement and said, “I am the tallest here and strategically placed at the middle. Haven’t you seen that in any group photo, the most important person occupies the middle seat? Do I need to say anything more?” read more
