An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole
which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and

always delivered a full portion of water

At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked

pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only

one and a half pots of water.

Of course , the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and

miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the

woman one day by the stream "I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in
my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house."

The old woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side

of the path, but not on the other pot's side?"

"That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower

seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you

water them."

"For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to

decorate the table.

Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to

grace the house."

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each

have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the

good in them.

SO, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell

the flowers on your side of the path!
Excellent story ! Great concept !
Maybe there was no FEVICOL or eeyam poosaravan , during the times of this story!
Agreed , people should be taken as they are , how they are , to avoid high expectations , turn out to be dejections.
Also the sender of this message has encrypted and addressed to all those of his kind ! good satire
