two frogs

Not open for further replies.
A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them
fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit
was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The
two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit
with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop,
that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took
heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down
and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again,
the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He
jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the
other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to
them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the
entire time.

This story teaches two lessons:

1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging
word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it
through the day.

2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes
to kill them.

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your
path. The power of words... it is sometimes hard to understand
that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak
words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in
difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time
to encourage another.
Dear Nattu,

I do not know anything about frogs, their capacity to think and to speak (in any medium, just to convey their thoughts to each other).

But, since the story told is just allegorical, I can say this.

1. In any population, the good, bad and the wicked are all there.
2. Thankfully, the bad ones are less than 10%.
3. Any one is not always good and any one is not always bad.
4. Any good person is not 100% good and any bad person is not 100% bad.
5. Between the good and the bad, the neutral ones are greater in number.
But they are mostly passive, indolent, nonchalant and lackadaisical.
This quality is more dangerous than an openly manifest bad quality. For, if
I fall down, I know pretty well the bad ones will not help. But, I cannot say with
absolute certainty anything about the 'neutral' ones.
6. Over a period of time, the 'Namakkedhukku Vambu?' type is growing and this
causes great concern.

Things to learn from this story:

=> Frogs travel in groups

=> Frogs can also turn deaf; they reveal this only after going through an ordeal (not before)

=> Not to forget, that frogs can talk.

:D :D
