    Nice message….

    Imagine this..


    You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it's raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for a bus:


    1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.


    2. An old friend who once saved your life.


    3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.


    Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that

    there could only be one passenger in your car?

    Think before you continue reading...

    .............

    ...........



    This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part
    of a job application.

    * You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and

    thus you should save her first;


    * or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life,

    and this would be the perfect chance to ! pay him back.


    * However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.


    The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble

    coming up with his answer. Guess what was his answer?

    .........


    ........

    ...........



    He simply answered:

    "I would give the car keys to my Old friend and let him take the lady

    to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the

    partner of my dreams."


    Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought

    limitations. Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."


    Have a nice day,

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
