THE HARE AND THE TORTOISE
GRANDMA’S OLDER VISION: One day, there lived a hare(rabbit) in a Jungle. It used to run very fast and he was so proud of his running capability. One day the hare saw a tortoise who walked very slowly. The hare started laughing and said, oh God..!! you have such a slow pace while walking. You can see my speed, not only I can walk fast but I can run at a rapid speed. Hearing this from the Hare, the Tortoise said, Hey!! My dear Hare..!! Let’s have a race to see who is faster than whom ..?? First, the rabbit started to laugh, and then he accepted the challenge. So, they both had the race. The hare ran very fast and he went very far. Then he turned back to see whether the tortoise came or not. The tortoise was far behind. The hare started thinking, “It will take a long time for the tortoise to reach the finish line before me, so he stopped there to take a rest for a while”. The Hare stopped under a tree and went to sleep. Meanwhile, the tortoise kept on walking the whole time and reached the finishing point. The tortoise slowly but steadily passed the hare and won the race. The Hare suddenly woke up and started the race again. It started to run very fast but the tortoise has already crossed the finishing line. The tortoise has already won the race. The Hare was very much disappointed to find that his competitor, who can’t even walk fastly, has won the race.
GRANDMA’S DIGITAL VISION: In today’s competitive world, humans turned into man-made machines or selfish people. We can see many people, who hop like a rabbit and run very fast in their field to reach their destination named success. So, people feel very proud for acknowledging these two methods of hopping and running to achieve success in their life. If any of a person, who hops and runs like a rabbit, and see a slow-moving human, like a tortoise or anyone who thinks of some new vision, for which that person works slowly, then, these man-made machines, start laughing at you and behaves in a very piggish way by dominating you and your ideas. Those man-made machines will start a competition for no reason with you and always annoy you to distract your focus from the work. Their main motive is they will win and you have to lose. But, one thing which they forget is they are just like computers or other man-made machines, whose mind gets refrained after a while. On the other hand, we, like a tortoise, move slowly and steadily, and keep on increasing our creativity and innovative ideas and never compromise with our enthusiasm towards the work. This is how the tortoise won the race by walking slowly and steadily, and we are also going to follow the same path by focusing on our work and not on any other unnecessary things.
GRANDMA’S ALLUSION ( NUSKE) :
- If a person’s self-respect is hurt, then that person will improve his skills and try to bring out the best from him. But, if a selfish person’s ego is hurt, then that person will only destroy his future because of his egoism. As how the rabbit did in the race, and because of his ego, he lost the race even though being one of the fastest runners.
- The people ( man-made machines), who live with this imagination, think that others are fools and their imaginary ways are quite low, by comparing with self.
- Your speed doesn’t describe how capable you are. It is your intensity, your patience, and your focuses on your work that describes your excellence.
- Those man-made machines’ minds will get refrained after a while, and, moreover, if anyone is trying to imitate your work or your ideas, but none will be able to copy your passion.
MORAL OF THE STORY: The rabbit lost the race because of his ego and over-confidence, which made him lazy. He underestimated the tortoise as it was not a strong opponent. The tortoise won the race as he walked slowly and steadily on its way. The tortoise showed everyone that if we fix our goals, then nothing is impossible.

THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER
THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER
These are on a series based popularly stories of grandma’s, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualize it, how much the technology has helped everyone’s day-to-day life, and whether these technical aspects are fruitful to us or not.
GRANDMA’S OLDER VERSION :
Once upon a time, there lived a shoemaker with his wife and they were very poor. Whatever the amount the shoe-maker got in return after selling the shoes, was the only source through which they got the food. The shoe-maker was very poor and on one fine day, he had only a little leather left out with which he could prepare only a
pair of shoes. So, the shoemaker decided to cut the leather and design the shoe in a very beautiful way to make it look like a beautiful pair of shoes. On the same day, a rich man came to the shoemaker and asked for a pair of shoes. The shoe-maker only had a single pair of shoes left with him and he showed it to the rich man.
Fortunately, the shoes fitted the man’s feet very nicely and he liked it so much that he gave him a good sum of money. With that money, the shoemaker brought enough leather to make two more pairs of shoes. On the day, the shoe-maker cut the designs of the shoes and kept them on the table. As he was so tired, he went to sleep.
He only cut the designs of the shoe but didn’t make it and during the nighttime, after he slept, something magical happened. When the shoe-maker got up the next day in the morning, he saw the shoes had already been made. He discussed this miracle with his wife, but neither of them understood how it happened. On the same day, a lady came and purchased both pairs of shoes and gave him a good sum of money.
The shoe-maker now brought enough leather to make four pairs of shoes and in the same way, he cut the designs and he kept it on the table, and went to sleep. To his surprise, when he woke up in the morning, he saw the shoes were made in a very wonderful way on the table. The wife of the shoe-maker was a bit surprised and even worried as to who did this last night ..?? Who came to our home..?? His wife came up with an idea that we will hide a full night behind the curtains and see who is coming to our house and making the shoes. Now, for this night, the shoe-maker as always cut the designs of the shoes and kept them on the table. The elves and the shoemaker hides.
He along with his wife hides behind the curtains to find the mystery. At midnight around, there came a group of tiny elves and they worked for the whole night and completed the making of the shoes. The elves were naked and seeing them the shoe-maker and his wife felt pity for them. The shoemaker’s wife made a few clothes, hats, and socks for
the tiny elves. On that night, they didn’t keep the cut leather for the shoes. Instead, they kept the prepared clothes, socks, and hats for the elves on the table. On that night, the elves came and were very happy to see the tiny clothes, hats, and socks for them. They cried they enjoyed, they wore the clothes and they even blessed the shoemaker’s family. From that day onwards, the elves didn’t come back but the blessing of those ELVES made the shoe-
maker, slowly a Richman.
GRANDMA’S DIGITAL VERSION:
In this digital version, I want to share a small story with you. Once, there was a man who prayed day and night just to meet the lord. After praying for so many years, one day God came into his dreams and said, “I’ll visit you tomorrow..!!”. The man was very happy and excited too. He keeps on wondering as to how he will meet God,
what he will ask, what he will hear from Him and many more things were simply run into
his brain like a wave. The next day morning, he was ready with all the arrangements to meet God like for offerings, foods, clothes and so much. At the time, a beggar came to his house and asked for food. The man said, Hey! wait..!! Who are you and why you come here..?? I’m waiting here for my God. He said to me in my dreams that he will be visiting me today anytime. So, I’m waiting for Him. You just don’t come here, Go, Get Lost..!! The beggar went.
After a few hours pass away, a pregnant lady comes to this man and asks for food and help. The man shouts at the pregnant lady and says her to go away in the same way how he told to the beggar. After some time, a boy comes to this man asking for food and clothes and the man behaves in the same way how he treated the pregnant lady and the beggar. Then, the man again started praying to God and asks him, Why you didn’t come to meet me..?? You promised me..!! The God replied, “I came to you, Son, but you didn’t recognize me. Every time I visited you, you only insulted me..!! The man understood that the beggar, the pregnant lady, and the boy were the persons who visited him, was his God. But he didn’t realize Him. So the elves and the shoemaker story ends here.
GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE):
Always pray to the spirit and not to the statue because God can come to you in any disguise. It doesn’t matter to him how he should meet his devotees. The only thing which matters is to God is His HOLY devotees. This is the grandma’s illusion of the elves and the shoemaker.
ETHOS OF THE STORY: The ethos of the story is to help, share, care, motivate everyone because we don’t know who is the person, in which disguise, who is asking help from us. Always try to do good for others but don’t ever try to hurt others.

THE HUNGRY FOX
THE HUNGRY FOX
GRANDMA’S STORIES DIGITAL VISION:
These are on a series based popularly stories of grandma’s, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualise it, that’s how much the technology has helped everyone’s day – to – day life, and the technical aspects are fruitful to us or not. This is a vision of the hungry fox.
GRANDMA’S OLDER VISION : Once upon a time, a fox was very hungry and he was searching for food here and there in the forest. But can’t find anything properly to eat. Finally, the fox entered the Vineyard and saw bunches of grapes, hanging on the branches of the trees. The grapes hanging in bunches on the branches of the tree were very up. It was not possible for a fox to reach the grapes. But, because he was hungry he started trying hard to reach the grapes. The fox starts to jump to reach the grapes. It jumps again and again for many times but could not reach the grapes. Finally, the fox gets tired and says, the grapes are sour in taste and it runs away.
GRANDMA’S DIGITAL VISION : Now in the present situation, every person is very hungry of success and wants to reach the utmost place. Everybody’s searching for success, here and there in the world. But don’t have – a proper planning, a correct execution technique and the most important is, how to maintain the success. But they will enter this competitive world and start adoring all the successful persons who have already achieved success. The most important mistake which almost everyone commits is – first is, they will start comparing themselves with others and second is, almost every person will see only the success of a successful person, but no one will see his level of planning, organising and executing the plan, patience, his strength, activeness and the success story behind his success will not be even noticed. Success is hanging in bunches in different fields and projects as different branches of a tree. It is also hanging up as grapes on the tree. As how it wasn’t easy for the fox to reach grapes, it is not easy and possible for all humans to reach success faster and sooner. But, because humans really want to achieve it, they also start jumping again and again. Few people may find the success but others continue to try. By trying continuously in one single direction, then finally, those people get tired and thinks, the business idea as very sour and drop the idea of their business. This is the digitise version of the hungry fox
GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE) :
- The major mistake committed by every person is – comparison. With whom are we going to compare our self, say me..??? With a person who has already raised his standard of living by growing so many years in the business, or with a person, who is in same level as ours. If we compare our self with higher side, we feel inferior and if we compare with same colleague, then the growth will stop.
- Let others do the comparison work, we should only focus on our work and everyday raise our efforts to achieve our goals.
- Just like a fox, how it was jumping again and again to reach the grapes. In the same way, we should also always try again and again to reach our destination..
- If we are trying many times and not attaining the goal, then don’t think it as sour and leave the work, instead make few changes in our work and again start from the beginning.
- Positive visionary towards the goals will give you good results. Always remember one thing, you are hiding one unique talent in you, just bring it out, scream loudly and stamp your signature.
MORAL OF THE STORY : The moral of the story is – it is always easy to give up or despise, but the real strength is built up when we fight for it until we succeed in our goals. So, never give up, instead we can find different ways or techniques to reach our motive. Start your day with new positive vibes and new ideas to achieve the target, instead of changing your goals everyday.

AKBAR AND BIRBAL – THE KICHIDI STORY
GRANDMA’S STORIES DIGITAL VISION:

BIRBAL’S KHICHDI –
AKBAR AND BIRBAL ..!!
GRANDMA’S OLDER VERSION:
We all know about Akbar and Birbal. Akbar and Birbal are one of the most repeated names in the stories.
Birbal is one of the most intelligent gems in Akbar’s kingdom. Akbar always used to get suggestions from Birbal relating to any state affairs.
Once, on a cold winter night, Akbar and Birbal were walking near a lake. Akbar touched the water by putting his finger in the freezing water and immediately took it out and said to Birbal, “I don’t think anybody can survive in this water for a night..??” It’s very cold.
Akbar then says to Birbal, I want to see, can anybody survive in this water for one night..?? He added, if anyone will stay in the water for the whole night and survive, then, I’ll pay a reward of 1000 gold coins. The next day, BIRBAL makes the announcement in the village as whoever will stay in this freezing water for one night will be rewarded by the King with
1000 gold coins.
Soon, a poor man was ready to take on the challenge of standing in the freezing water for the whole night. The poor man was guarded by two royal guards and he stood the whole night in the freezing water. The next morning, the guards took the poor man to the court to receive his reward.
The king asked the poor man, how did you stay the whole night in that chilled water..?? He said, Your Highness..!! I looked at a lamp that was burning at a distance and spent the night. On hearing this from the man, the Emperor got very angry and said, you are not eligible to receive this reward as you manage to stand in the cold freezing water because of the warmth from the lamp.
The Poorman was heartbroken and went to BIRBAL for help. After hearing this from the poor man, BIRBAL decided to teach the lesson of HOPE to the King in his technical way.
The next day, Birbal didn’t go to the court. Akbar waited for a while but still when BIRBAL didn’t
come to the court, He visited BIRBAL to find the reason.
When the king visited BIRBAL, to His amusement, He couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Birbal was sitting beside the fire with a pot hanging almost 6 feet above. When Akbar asked Birbal, what is this..?? Birbal replied, “your highness.!! I Am cooking KHICHDI“. Akbar started laughing and said, how can you cook khichdi in this way, this is totally impossible.
Birbal replied, “It is possible, my Lord..!!”. Akbar said to BIRBAL to explain it. Birbal replies, if a poor man can stay warm by looking at a burning lamp from a distance, then I can cook khichdi in the same way. Akbar understood the point of Birbal. He called the Poorman and rewarded him with 1000 gold coins for completing the challenge. Birbal said if we have hope, we get the inspiration to do any hard work.
GRANDMA’S DIGITISE VERSION: Grandma explains, “what is hope..?” On one hand, a family is living their life – no one is interested in caring, sharing, worrying, discussing, expressing, all are involved in their own work and don’t even think about those people who are living with them.
On the other side, a family is living – expressing everyone their pains, love, sorrow, care, worrying about everyone, discussing each in every decision, and most importantly respecting each other, no matter whether a person is big or small. So which family do you want..?? If you want the first family, then they are just surviving and if you choose the second one, then, whatever you want will come only because of hope.
GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE) :
1. Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. In short, a feeling of trust in others. The desire in you will give you a different expectancy to live life.
2. When Akbar was hoping that if anybody could stand in this lake for a night, He didn’t have to believe in it because He can’t do it by himself. Since the hope was without trust it became a challenge. When a poor man was able to stand for the whole night in the lake, Akbar was not able to believe it because it was not a feeling of trust but it was a challenge.
ETHOS OF THE STORY: The moral of the story says, Hope will start with a feeling of
expectation, desire, and trust, and these, in return will inspire you to do any kind of hard work.
How we say as –
“Where there is a will, there is a way”.
In the same way,
“Where there is a HOPE, there is an INSPIRATION”…

THE GOOSE AND THE GOLDEN EGGS
TITLE : THE GOOSE AND THE GOLDEN EGGS

These are on a series based popularily stories of grandma’s, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualise it, how much the technology has helped everyone’s daily life, and whether these technical aspects are useful to us or not.
THE GOOSE THAT LAID GOLDEN EGGS
GRANDMA’S OLDER VERSION :
Once upon a time in a village, there lived a farmer with his wife. They were very poor and had no kids, but a small little farm. The only way for their survival was to grow a few vegetables in the farm and sell it in the market and earn money.
Once, eventually, the farmer was able to save sufficient money and with that money he brought a goose to his house. He took the goose and made a nest for her to lay eggs. When the farmer went the next day to the goose to gather some eggs for his breakfast and to sell the remaining in the market, to his surprise the goose laid a golden egg. He tried to sell the goose and the golden eggs.
The farmer was very much surprised by seeing the golden egg. Everyday, the goose was laying a golden egg and soon the farmer and his wife became rich. One day, the farmer thought that everyday the goose is laying one golden egg. why don’t we cut her stomach and get all the golden eggs at a time and become rich..??
The seed of greed originated in the farmer’s brain. So, he went to the goose silently, picked him in his hand and cut the goose with the knife, which they were hiding from the goose. The couple cut the goose and opened it to find out how many golden eggs were inside her.
The goose was like any other goose and had no golden eggs inside of her at all. Now, the farmer realised that his greediness pays him back by losing the goose which laid a golden egg everyday. the goose and the Golden Eggs will never come back. The couple finally realised that they had lost the goose and now they will never be able to see the golden egg ever again in their life.
GRANDMA’S DIGITISE VERSION:
In this story, Grandma compares the farmer as a common man, the golden egg as the money and killing the goose to become rich to scam. Now-a-days, we can see there are many scams happening by prey upon the common man.
In the name of scams, many common man’s are getting robbed because the scammers give them greed in the form of a golden egg. The scammers will convince you as to how your money will get doubled fast if you invest, they cheat you in the name of lottery prizes and one of the biggest scam which Grandma feels in today’s life is the chain business.
In the name of business, they will convince you to invest money and then they will tell you to join others under you as your team. In all these ways, only a few those who have started up the business and those who have joined this business in the early level will be benefited.
But others are all going to lose their money. So, this is how the scammers greed the common man that every day they are benefitted from this business just like receiving a golden egg, but when the greed increases more (i.e) when people increase more, the goose is being cut down by the knife and nothing is there in her stomach.
In the same way, when many people join the business and investment increases, then, all the people are being cut down and this is how a scam happens. The Goose and the golden eggs are the perfect example for it.
GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE) :
1. It doesn’t mean that all the chain businesses are a scam. The first thing which a person has to see while joining a business is whether they are giving you greed or utilising your potential. There are many chain businesses which don’t ask you to invest, but still you will be benefited there, only by putting your efforts, working hard and showing your potential.
2. Don’t become greedy by seeing others money, because that is the reason where people will cheat you by showing the greed of a golden egg and this results in all your potential will never be noticed, utilised and it will go in vain. Just how the farmer became greedy about the goose and the golden eggs.
3. Believe in your potential, work hard, stay focused, put your efforts to the extreme and raise your standards. Don’t allow a scammer to make a scam by robbing or cheating you. Raise your standards to another extreme level where greed of a single golden egg will not manipulate your mind.
ETHOS OF THE STORY :
The moral of the story is, “Be happy with what you have, otherwise you will have to face the consequences”. If you want to bring a growth in your life, in your living standards, you have to stay focused on your work, or else, there are many scams to manipulate your mind and bring down to you on the zero level.
