Post # 50 : The Balloon

Once there was a balloon seller. He was filling up balloons and setting them free in the sky.

A small kid, quite ugly than other kids around approached him and asked - "Your blue balloon flies, your red balloon flies, your yellow balloon flies too. But how does the black balloon fly?"

The balloon seller smiled and tapped on his head.
"Does the color matter?" He asked the kid.

"Of course, Yes. I'm not as beautiful as others are. So I'm not going to achieve as much HEIGHTS as they do."

The balloon seller went white faced on listening such a comment from an innocent kid.

Then he spoke gold -
"The heights you achieve are achieved only and only by what's inside you.

Well, maybe your color or shape matters today. It'll earn you praise if it may.
But praise is temporary. Respect is forever.

Beauty loses it's charm someday. Self-respect never.

Beauty is good. It gives you a head start at confidence. But, at the end, your teacher remembers with what you did in your test. Not your face."

And the black balloon rose, faster and higer than any other.

No more hates to Bill Gates.
