A 6 yr old boy was in the market with his 4 yr old sister.
Suddenly the boy found that his sister was lagging behind.
He stopped and looked back.
His sister was standing in front of a toy shop and was watching something with great interest.

The boy went back to her and asked,
‘Do you want something?’

The sister pointed at a doll.
The boy held her hand and
like a responsible elder brother,
gave that doll to her.

The sister was very very happy.

The shopkeeper watched this and was amused to see the mature behaviour of the boy.
Then the boy came to the counter and asked the shopkeeper,

‘What is the cost of this doll, Sir!’

The shopkeeper was a cool man
and had experienced the odds of life.

So he asked the boy with a lot of love and affection,
‘ Well, What can you pay?’

The boy took out all the shells
that he had collected from the sea shore,
from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper.
The shopkeeper took the shells
and started counting as if he were counting currency.

Then he looked at the boy.
The boy asked him worriedly,
‘Is it less?’
The shopkeeper said,
‘No,No..
These are more than the cost.
So I will return the remaining.’

Saying so,
he kept only 4 shells with him and returned the remaining.

The boy,
very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and left with his sister.

A servant in that shop was very surprised watching all these.

He asked his master,
‘Sir..! You gave away such a costly doll just for 4 shells..???’
The shopkeeper said with a smile,
‘Well, For us these are mere shells.
But for that boy,
these shells are very precious.
And at this age he does not understand what money is,
but when he will grow up,
he definitely will.

And when he would remember
that he purchased a doll with the Shells instead of Money,
he will remember Me and think that the world is full of Good people.
He will develop positive thinking…Thats it…’

Think positive, be positive
