2. I Helped Myself.

    Here one more incident to appreciate men's good tactics which would be with good fun.

    For one son-in-law in a village" Ghee " is his all time favourite dish.It means whatever dishes he has, in it " Ghee "must be predominant for him.He is known as " Ghee Man the Great ".He is such a crazy man who has the ability to turn any dishes into the    "Ghee Related Dishes ". For his own sake his own house has a good number of cattle.So he reigns his " Ghee Department "as good and as elegant as possible.

   In villages,the people are having a good rapport with each other as they are known to each other for generations.So the people in his own street who happens to prepare some Ghee related dishes,the first call would come for him to taste the dish.His maternal and paternal relations never interfere his " Ghee Kingdom ".In fact they do their best to help him to rule his " Ghee Kingdom " elegantly.

   But when it comes with the relation of his wife part,they are not comfortable with this," Ghee Man the Great "character.Usually at villages,there are so many festivals, big or small are being celebrated throughout the year and the sons-in-law are often being invited along with their loving daughters as the gesture of respect.But this "Ghee Man the Great " would not be invited for any sort of  festivals at any cost.It is an open secret it seems.

    But his parents-in-law are very tactic to make him believe that as if he has many tight schedules to handle,he would find no time to visit all this sort of festivals.His friends are teasing him by saying that as his parents-in-law don't have sufficient Ghee for this " Ghee Man the Great ", they put  forward this lame excuse. Even his wife with no bothering,maintained the same lame excuse and she
rejoices herself very well by celebrating all the festivals at her birth place with her loving children and leaving behind her loving husband.

   As usual one such grand festival arrives.Fortunately it falls on the day,where the " Ghee Man " has the opportunity to attend this festival along with his family.As there is no other go,his parents-in-law invited him.He made his entry.

   The festival was indeed very grand.But his festival meals were not as grand as he expected.He didn't see any form of entry of his very favourite Ghee in any form of dish.His disappointment was beyond any explanation.Keeping his ' Son-in-law respect'  aside,he asked his mother-in-law for some Ghee." Oh dear! sorry! I totally forgot.Your favourite Ghee would be on its way".Then she went inside and brought a moderate size earthen pot,which was with full of Ghee ( but it was not melted ) and turned the pot and inclined it down completely just above his plate as if she drained all the Ghee into his plate and told with all fake concern in her voice," Help yourself my son"  and kept the pot by his side as if it was her son-in-law's own choice to have as much ghee as he could have.

   His wife was at the other side of the room as if she was busy with  the children,taking no care of her loving husband.Poor son-in-law.His stay over there for three days, it happened so.The fourth day he had to leave for his own village.The grunted son-in-law didn't know what else to do with this uncivilized family.

   The fourth day the mother-in-law laid the table.As usual, she
brought  the same earthen pot filled with not melted ghee and just held the pot and as if she was streaming down the whole ghee just above his meals.And kept the pot by his side and uttered the same dialogue," Help yourself my son " with the same fake smiles in her face.At that time God showered a good mercy on this son-in-law.Somebody outside gave an emergency call for her mother-in-law.She went out.Her daughter also accompanied her.When the son-in-law peeped through the window, he came to know that it would take some minutes for them to come back.

    The son-in-law acted quickly.He took the earthen pot and darted into the kitchen and managed to melt the whole ghee in the pot, in the morning ever green burner of the earthen stove.Then he brought back the pot with the melted ghee with good care and kept it by his side and took his seat as innocent as possible.The uncivilized hosts came back.With a good humble request the son-in-law pleaded,"some more ghee please! ". " All ghee is yours my son",his mother- in-law took the ghee pot and as usual held the ghee pot down.The whole melted ghee streamed down and filled her beloved son-in-law's plate to his heart content.

   The son-in-law looked into his mother-in law's face and with all real sparkling smiles in his face and with such a pride,he told " I  helped Myself very well Mom!as you told me ".

1.Good Tactics of Men


   In our country side this sort of fables and parables are well known ones.One such parable.Here it goes.

    One good rich man was destined to a selfish woman in the name of marriage where the cordial relations of husband and wife are supposed to be maintained as good as possible.But here in this family,the lady inclined to her birth place unconditionally and resorted to a total neglect of her husband's family.Her husband was unaware of it as he was working in a foreign country quite a period of time. 

    When he got back to his home town to settle down,he came to know all these unfortunate facts.The man had a lovely sister.When he visited her,he came to know about her poverty and her poor state of inability to get any sort of help from her sister-in-law in the absence of her loving brother.

   She said," My dear brother! once I went to seek some help from your wife,she didn't even ready to offer me some good meals.But I didn't understand the queer reason she put forward  for her inability to prepare some food for me".

   Perplexed brother wanted to know about that queer reason.His sister continued ,"Your wife said," I am unable to offer you some food.Because the three stones (which used to be as stove to
prepare food )are taken away by a rat.I am so sorry for you".So I came back with empty hands along with empty stomach but with heavy sick mind".

   The loving brother hugged her loving sister with a motherly concern," No need to worry sister!Everything will be all right.You are going to meet your refined sister-in-law soon".

   The other day the brother was sitting outside and was watching the passers by.Then he spoke as louder as possible as if he had been speaking to some one else and made sure that his wife was listening to him.It went like this."Oh my God! It is very unfortunate.Tell them not to worry.I will do my best to help them.In fact it is my
solemn duty to be their side at this time".

   Then he came back to his house as quickly as possible with such a gloomy face.On seeing this his wife asked for the reason."You see my dear.It is very unfortunate.I met your (Mentioned the name of one of her birth place man,who also had a close relative in the nearby village) outside who was on his way to visit his relatives to that nearby village.

   "He told that the past one week's heavy rain brought a big collapse to your whole village.The whole village's farm land grains which are about to get harvested are still inside the water which are of no use.I think your family is also undergoing with the same trouble.Even though,even after this one week they didn't ask for any sort of help,it is our moral duty to extend our help in time.So let me visit them first to analyse the situation.Going with bare hand at this state is not at all fair on our part.So let me have something to give them as helping gesture.So be ready as soon as possible with the things what you would like to give them. 

   It is a known fact that she was ready to load the things which a bullock cart could hold them.And it is also a known fact that the bullock cart was heading towards the man's sister's house.

   In the evening when the man came back,his wife asked with all concern about the welfare of her family.The man with the same undoubted gloomy face," What is there to say? If I say what happened, none would believe it.But you should believe".

   Perplexed wife looked at her husband with some panic in her voice,"What happened ?"." Oh my God I couldn't believe my own eyes.On the way,while I was stretching myself under a tree,in front of my own eyes it happened.Giving no chance to any sort of interruption,the man continued, "Do you know what happened?".
"An eagle took away the bullock cart with all the things and in such a speed it vanished in the thin air". 

   His wife with such a wrath,"Do you expect me to believe this?".
Pat came the reply."When you expect me to believe that a rat could take away the three cooking stones means what is wrong in me to expect you to believe this adventure of an eagle?".

  Then no other go for the wife except to mend her ways.

6. To Disclose.

      We people who belong to yesteryears generation,are fortunate enough to have more fun and having more good things to enjoy.As we were having good number of siblings and the joint family system that helped us to have a warmth family atmosphere.But the present generation, compared to us,they are very unfortunate indeed as they are missing abundant characteristic features of a joint family system and with good number of siblings.

   Good number of siblings who are having their own characteristic 
features are in fact a real strength.Indeed,one's inter personal needs and intra personal needs are taken care by their respective characteristic siblings in natural way.Hence almost all sort of problems would be solved among themselves.Only a few unsolved problems would be brought into the judiciary of their parents.So naturally we siblings lead a happy and comfortable and secured life in our own way under the wings of our parents.

   Many times we people wish that our children had enjoyed our way of life. IT IS POSSIBLE.When there is a will,there is always a way.The first step is to be suggested that we parents are to have a goodwill gesture to come forward to create the same warmth family atmosphere what we had experienced.For the sake of our children,
with the same goodwill gesture,we parents are to be ready to maintain a good rapport with our parents and with our own blood and flesh siblings.It is natural for the children to be easy and to feel secure with the relations where their parents feel good.

   The second step is to be suggested that, when we take notice of every family,there would be one big resource is vivid for the up - gradation of the respective family.It may be a movable asset or an immovable asset.The up - gradation is only possible with the open heart of the family members.When we are ready to respect that big resource of our own,our children would be able to come closer in presence of their parents.This closeness would get strengthened in the course of time and it would be strongly recognized even in the absence of their respective parents.It means,through their natural caring and sharing moments they would have a guarantee for a
secured bond among themselves.

   The third step to consider for the sake of children welfare is,we parents with our siblings are expected to come forward to invest a ten percent of their total income for a common venture after a good analysis.Regarding this our very often meetings would also help us to keep us and our children in a close circle of good understanding.
So that our children would have chances to face the things as they come in natural way.

    These suggestions are for the sake of the greater good for our children.As they are having a least chances of having good number of siblings and an unsecured dependence with the external world,
we parents are expected to pave way for our children to have sibling relationship with their maternal and paternal cousins through our own siblings.This is considered to be the first righteousness we give our children to make their days fear free and worry free and but letting them being as happy bees.
