In a poor zoo of India, a lion was so much frustrated as it was offered not more than 1 kg meat a day. The lion thought its prayers were answered when one of Gulf countries Zoo manager visits the zoo and requests the zoo management to shift the lion to the Gulf Zoo.
The lion was so happy and started thinking of a central A/c environment, a goat or two every day and a residence permit also.
On it's first day after arrival, the lion was offered a big bag, sealed very nicely for breakfast.
The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained few peanuts. Then the lion thought that may be they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted from India.
The next day the same thing happened.
On the third day again the same food bag of peanuts was delivered.
The lion was so furious, it stopped the delivery boy and blasted at him,
"Don't you know I am the lion...king of the Jungle..., what's wrong with your management? What nonsense is this? Why are you delivering peanuts to me?"
The delivery boy politely said, "Sir, I know you are the king of the jungle but ......err....... didn't you know that you have been brought here on a 'monkey's visa."?
Her hair up in a pony tail,
her favorite dress tied with a bow
Today was Daddy's Day at school,
and she couldn't wait to go
But her mommy tried to tell her,
that she probably should stay home
Why the kids might not understand,
if she went to school alone
But she was not afraid;
she knew just what to say
What to tell her classmates,
on this Daddy's Day
But still her mother worried,
for her to face this day alone
And that was why once again,
she tried to keep her daughter home
But the little girl went to school,
eager to tell them all
About a dad she never sees,
a dad who never calls
There were daddies along the wall in back,
for everyone to meet
Children squirming impatiently,
anxious in their seats
One by one the teacher called,
a student from the class
To introduce their daddy,
as seconds slowly passed
At last the teacher called her name,
every child turned to stare
Each of them were searching,
for a man who wasn't there
"Where's her daddy at?"
she heard a boy call out
"She probably doesn't have one,"
another student dared to shout
And from somewhere near the back,
she heard a daddy say
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
too busy to waste his day."
The words did not offend her,
as she smiled at her friends
And looked back at her teacher,
who told her to begin
And with hands behind her back,
slowly she began to speak
And out from the mouth of a child,
came words incredibly unique
"My Daddy couldn't be here,
because he lives so far away
But I know he wishes he could
be with me on this day
And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know
All about my daddy,
and how much he loves me so
He loved to tell me stories,
he taught me to ride my bike
He surprised me with pink roses,
and taught me to fly a kite
We used to share fudge sundaes,
and ice cream in a cone
And though you cannot see him,
I'm not standing all alone
'Cause my daddy's always with me,
even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
he'll forever be here in my heart"
With that her little hand reached up,
and lay across her chest
Feeling her own heartbeat,
beneath her favorite dress
And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
her mother stood in tears
Proudly watching her daughter,
who was wise beyond her years
For she stood up for the love
of a man not in her life
Doing what was best for her,
doing what was right
And when she dropped her hand back down,
staring straight into the crowd
She finished with a voice so soft,
but its message clear and loud
"I love my daddy very much,
he's my shining star,
And if he could he'd be here,
but heaven's just too far,
But sometimes when I close my eyes,
it's like he never went away."
And then she closed her eyes,
and saw him there that day
And to her mother's amazement,
she witnessed with surprise
A room full of daddies and children,
all starting to close their eyes
Who knows what they saw before them,
who knows what they felt inside
Perhaps for merely a second,
they saw him at her side.
"I know you're with me Daddy,"
to the silence she called out
And what happened next made believers,
of those once filled with doubt
Not one in that room could explain it,
for each of their eyes had been closed
But there placed on her desktop,
was a beautiful fragrant pink rose
And a child was blessed, if only a moment, by the
love of her shining bright star
And given the gift of believing,
that heaven is never too far.

A family in Kerala was puzzled when the coffin of their mother arrived from United States. The Mother was in United States to visit her daughter.It was sent by one of the daughters. The dead body was so tightly squeezed inside the coffin, with no space left in it! When they opened the lid, they found a letter on top, which read as follows:-
With love from Lissy Mol
Dear brothers & sisters, I am sending our mothers body to you, since it was her wish that she should be cremated in the Forane Church cemetery. Sorry I could come along because nurses' salary is going to increase from next month so I doubt I will get it if I am not here.
You will find inside the coffin, Amma's body, 12 cans of cheese,10 packets of chocolates & 4 packets of badam. Please divide these among all of you. On the sides of her head there is a tin each of Nido & Tang. On Amma's feet you will find a new pair of Reebok shoes (size 10) for Biju. Also, there are 2 pairs of shoes for Lijju's & Ammani's sons. Hope the sizes are correct.
Amma is wearing 6 American T-shirts. The large size is for Biju & the others are for Tomy & Suresh. The 2 new jeans Amma is wearing are for the boys. The Swiss watch that Manju wanted is on Amma's left wrist.
Tangamma Aunty, Amma is wearing the necklace, earrings & ring that you asked for. Please take them. The 6 white cotton socks that Amma is wearing must be divided between Pradeep & Nikhil.
In Amma's pockets there are about 25 envelopes that are to be posted immediately. Some are drafts from the Exchange Company. Those marked "By hand" are to be hand delivered. (These letters are from my friends in the hostel-pisukkikal thanne enthu cheyyam?) and there is Rosamma's wedding album I brought to show (off) my friends in hospital on my last visit. Also, you will find some syringes & some other medicines which I don't know what for. But still I am sending them. Give it to the neighbours or Shanthamma, ok?
