Once, after giving a discourse on the power of creative thinking, a teacher thought of examining the learning of his students. He took them near a sea and handed them a sieve. The students were inquisitive about the new activity. One of them asked, "What do you intend us to do with this Sieve, Sir?" The teacher threw a challenge and demanded to fill the sieve with water. Confused little minds moved towards the sea and started with their attempts of filling the sieve. They tried every possible way but it was nearly impossible! Exhausted by the repeated failed attempts, the students showed disappointment "This is an impossible task, Sir. Why would you demand us to do something that cannot happen?" The teacher smiled at them and asked "Are you sure, it cannot happen?" The students nodded in acceptance. read more

There was once a heavy storm in an idea land, situated in the Tequatorial region with a lot of sunlight. This place was also called sometimes as land of the sun because of abundant sunlight and wind. But the storm this time was very strong and a lot of trees were uprooted, and a few flag poles had also fallen down. There was thankfully no loss of life. After the storm, people started rebuilding the damaged structure. One young girl popularly called Mini was assisting her mother in cleaning the debris in the garden. After a while, she noticed that storm had brought lot of pages of a torn book. She was very happy when she saw on each page an interesting innovative idea of some young student. She collected all the pages and made a few small paper wind mills. When the mill run, she could feel the flow of wind in the garden. A lot of other children also gathered seeing her so happy, they were intrigued to see so many new innovative ideas printed on each wing of the wind mill. It seemed the pages had been torn of an art or idea book? Which was this book? read more

Alone traveller was walking through the mountains. He did not have to Awalk alone, since he was part of a group which used to walk through different parts of the country to learn and share, be indifferent sometimes, and care. But he was feeling a bit sad inside recalling something, so wanted to walk alone for a while. But as he was growing old (so did people say, he did not want to believe that), he wanted to spend more and more time alone. On a turn through the mountains covered with rich green vegetation, comprising creepers, some bushes finding space among cracked rocks, he saw a leaking water pipe. The water was oozing out like a fountain. He was worried that this will reduce the pressure of the water and may be, some people living at the end of the pipeline might not get enough clean water. read more
