The P̳R̳O̳F̳E̳S̳S̳O̳R̳ 👨‍🏫 began his class by holding 🆙 a glass 🥛with some water💦 in it. He held it🆙 for all to see👁 & asked the S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳👨‍🎓 “How much do you think this glass🥛 weighs⚖️❓S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳S̳👨‍🎓 answered 50g͎m͎s͎…100g͎m͎s͎ ....125g͎m͎s͎ ...
“I really don’t know unless I weigh ⚖️it,” said the P̳R̳O̳F̳E̳S̳S̳O̳R̳👨‍🏫, but, my
What would happen if I held it 🆙like this for a few minutes❓.
‘Nothing’ …..the S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳👨‍🎓said..‘
🆗what would happen if I held it 🆙 like this for an hour⌛️❓The P̳R̳O̳F̳E̳S̳S̳O̳R̳ 👨‍🏫asked.
Sir,Your arm 🤳would begin to ache’ said one of the S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳👨‍🎓
You’re right✅, now what would happen if I held it for a day⛅️❓
Sir,Your arm 🤳could go numb; you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to hospital 🏨for sure!
Ventured another S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳👨🏾‍🎓& all the S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳S̳👨🏼‍🎓 laughed😆.
“Very good.
But during all this, did the weight ⚖️of the glass 🥛change asked the P̳R̳O̳F̳E̳S̳S̳O̳R̳👨‍🏫.
‘No’…. Was the answer.
Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress❓.
The S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳👨🏼‍🎓were puzzled😕.
What should I do now to come out of pain😧❓asked P̳R̳O̳F̳E̳S̳S̳O̳R̳👨‍🏫again.
ᑭᑌƬ ƬℎƐ Gᒪᗩᔕᔕ 🥛ᗪOᗯᑎ⤵️!” said one of the S̳T̳U̳D̳E̳N̳T̳👨‍🎓“Exactly!” said the P̳R̳O̳F̳E̳S̳S̳O̳R̳👨‍🏫.
Life’s problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head🧠 & they seem 🆗.
Think🤔 of them for a L͌O͌N͌G͌ time & they begin to ache🤯.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.
It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to ‘PUT THEM DOWN⤵️’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep💤…
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh🆕 &strong 💪🏻& can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!👣.
So, when you start 🔘your day☀️ today, Remember to ‘PUT THE GLASS 🥛DOWN ⤵️! .

Goodmorning!😊 Saturday

So, it all started one lazy Sunday afternoon☀️ in a small town.Two school-going friends 👬had a crazy idea💡. They rounded up ƬℎᖇƐƐ
goats 🐐from the neighborhood and painted 🖌the number1️⃣ , 2️⃣and 4️⃣on their sides. That night 🌃they let the goats🐐 loose inside their school building🏢.
The next morning🌅, when the authorities entered the school🏢, they could smell👃 something was wrong. They soon saw goat🐐 droppings on the stairs 📶and near the entrance and realized that some goats🐐 had entered the building🏢.
A search🔍was immediately launched and very soon, the ƬℎᖇƐƐgoats were found. But the authorities were worried😟,where was goat🐐No.3️⃣? They spent the rest of the day ⛅️looking 🧐for goat No.3️⃣.

Gradually there was panic😨and frustration😠. The school 🏢declared classes off for the students 👨‍🎓for the rest of the day⛅️. The teachers👨‍🏫, helpers💁🏻‍♂️, guards 👮‍♂️, canteen staffs 👨🏻‍💼, boys👦🏻were all busy looking 👁for the goat 🐐No.3️⃣, which, of course, was never found.

Simply because it did not exist.

Those among us who inspite of having a good life are always feeling a "ᒪᗩᑕƘ OF FᑌᒪFƖᒪᗰƐᑎƬ"are actually looking for the elusive, missing, non-existent goat 🐐No.3️⃣.

Whatever the area of complaint 😤or search🔍 or dissatisfaction may be - relationship👨‍👩‍👦‍👦, job🏭-satisfaction, materialistic achievement🎖...... An absence of something is always ᒪᗩᖇGƐᖇ than the presence of many other things.
Stop ✋worrying 😟about goat 🐐No.3️⃣

GoodMorning!😊 Friday

Once a hunter 🏹lost his way deep inside jungle 🌴🍃. He used all his navigation skills but neither did he find any way out of the jungle 🌴🍃nor could he find any food to eat for 8️⃣ days at a stretch. He started feeling so damn hungry 🍽 that he could eat an entire elephant🐘 at one go. Disappointed🙁, he lost 😔all hope. And that is exactly when an apple 🍎tree caught his sight👁. He collected a dozen apples 🍎to feed him for the rest of his search.

As he ate🍴 the 1️⃣st apple🍎, his joy😄 knew no bounds and he just couldn't stop feeling grateful 😌and blessed😇. He thanked 🙏life. He thanked 🙏God. He could not believe his luck when he ate the 1️⃣st apple 🍎but he was less grateful while having the 2️⃣nd apple 🍎and even lesser grateful when he had the 5️⃣th apple🍎. Somehow, with each passing apple🍎, the hunger 🍽still kept on increasing ⬆️and the joy☺️ kept on reducing ⬇️drastically. He just could not enjoy the 🔟th apple🍎.

Why? 🤔He had already taken for granted the gift 💝of having found an apple 🍎tree in the middle of a forest🌴🍃 after 8️⃣long days of wandering 🚶‍♂️with hunger. When he took the 🔟th apple🍎in his hand, he was still very hungry🍽 but he just did not feel like having it any more. Economics calls this D͌I͌M͌I͌N͌I͌S͌H͌I͌N͌G͌ M͌A͌R͌G͌I͌N͌A͌L͌ U͌T͌I͌L͌I͌T͌Y͌ . in simple words, it can be called taking things for granted. Or let’s just call D͌I͌M͌I͌N͌I͌S͌H͌I͌N͌G͌ G͌R͌A͌T͌I͌T͌U͌D͌E͌ 👉the 🔟th apple 🍎effect-.
The 🔟th apple 🍎did not lack taste😋, it did not lack the potential to satisfy his hunger 🍽 but the only thing lacking was his gratitude for finding food 🍲in the middle of the jungle🌴🍃.

The hunter 🏹represents us. And the apple 🍎represents the gifts💝that L͌I͌F͌E͌ gives us. The 🔟th apple 🍎represents our lack of gratitude for these gifts💝 of life and our ‘take everything for granted’ attitude. As we continue receiving the gifts 💖of life, our hunger, our greed keeps on increasing⤴️ and the joy we get from these gifts 💖diminishes⤵️.

The 10th apple 🍎is as sweet as the first apple🍎. If the 🔟th apple🍎 fails to give you as much pleasure as the first one, nothing is wrong with the apple🍎, everything is wrong with you. If you get bored on a dull day, it is not because the day is dull 😶and boring😴. It is because your gratitude has become dull and boring. The gift 💝of life for another day cannot be taken for granted. The 9th year of life should seem as exciting as the 16th year, as the 25th year, as the 50th year.

Never let the 🔟th apple effect’ make you take these gifts 💝of life for granted. Never let your gratitude🙌 for L͌I͌F͌E͌ fade away.

GoodMorning!😊 Thursday,6 September 2018

A 6 year old boy👦 was in the market with his 4 year 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 the 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 💁‍♂️was watching everything and getting amused to see the matured behavior of the boy.
Now 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 & affection, “Well, What can you pay?” :)
The boy took out all the shells 🐚that he had collected from sea shore🌊, from his pocket 👖and gave them to the shopkeeper💁‍♂️. The shopkeeper 💁‍♂️took the shells🐚 and started counting as if he were counting the 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 went away with his sister. 👧:
A S͌E͌R͌V͌A͌N͌T͌ in that shop got very surprised 🤔watching all these. He asked his master💁‍♂️, “Sir ! You gave away such a costly doll just for 4️⃣shells 🐚?”
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 world is full of Good people.
It will help him develop a positive 👌attitude and he too in turn will feel motivated 👍to be Good.” :)
M͌I͌N͌D͌ M͌A͌N͌T͌R͌A͌– Whatever emotion you infuse into the world, it will further spread. If you do good, goodness will spread. If you do bad, negativity will spread.
☝️Realize you are a very powerful source of energy !
☝️Your good or bad will come back to you magnified. Not in the ways you want it, and probably not in the ways you can understand it. But it will come back.
☝️A simple act of caring creates an endless ripple that comes back to you one day :)

Goodmorning! Wednesday

Once a man👨 got lost 🙄in a desert🌵🐪. The water💧in his flask had run out 
2️⃣days ago, and he was on his last legs. He knew that if he didn't get some water 💦soon, he would surely die💀. The
 man 👨saw a small hut 🏡ahead of him. He thought💭 it would be a mirage or maybe a hallucination, but having no other option, he 👨moved toward it. As he 👨got closer , he realized it was quite real. So he dragged his tired 😓body to the door 🚪with the last of his strength💪.
The hut 🏡was not occupied and seemed like it had been abandoned for quite some time⏳. The man👨 entered into it, hoping against hope that he might find water💦 inside.
His heart 💗skipped a beat when he saw what was in the hut 🏡- a water hand pump...... It had a pipe going down through the floor, perhaps tapping a source of water deep under-ground.
He began working the hand pump, but no water 💦came out. He kept at it and still nothing happened. Finally he gave up from exhaustion😓 and frustration😩. He threw up his hands in despair🙆‍♂️. It looked as if he was going to die 💀after all.
Then the man 👨noticed a bottle🍶in one corner of the hut🏡. It was filled with water 💦and corked up to prevent evaporation.
He uncorked the bottle🍶 and was about to gulp down the sweet life-giving water💧, when he noticed a piece of paper 📃attached to it. Handwriting on the paper📄read : "Use this water 💧to start the pump. Don't forget to fill the bottle when you're done."
He had a dilemma. He could follow the instruction 📝and pour the water 💧into the pump, or he could ignore it and just drink the water💧.
What to do? 🤔If he let the water 💧go into the pump, what assurance did he have that it would work? What if the pump malfunctioned? What if the pipe had a leak? What if the underground reservoir had long dried up?
But then... maybe the instruction📝 was correct✔️. Should he risk it?🤔 If it turned out to be false, he would be throwing away the last water💧 he would ever see.
Hands 👐 trembling, he poured the water💧into the pump. Then he closed his eye👁, said a prayer🙏, and started working the pump.
He heard👂 a gurgling sound, and then 💦water came gushing 🌊out, more than he could possibly use. He luxuriated in the cool and refreshing stream. He was going to live
After drinking his fill and feeling much better, he 👨looked around the hut🏡. He found a pencil ✏️and a map🗺 of the region. The map 🗺showed that he was still far away from civilization, but at least now he knew where he was and which direction 👉to go👣.
He 👨filled his flask for the journey ahead. He also filled the bottle 🍶and put the cork back in. Before leaving the hut🏡, he added his own writing ✍️below the instruction:📝 "Believe me, it works!"
👉This story is all about life. It teaches us that We must GIVE before We can RECEIVE Abundantly.
More importantly, it also teaches that FAITH plays an important role in GIVING.
The man 👨did not know if his action would be rewarded🏆, but he proceeded regardless.
Without knowing what to expect, he made a Leap of Faith.
💧Water in this story represents the Good🌿 things in Life
Give life some Water to Work with, and it will RETURN far more than you put in........!!

Central government to amend EPF scheme to enable members buy homes

Central government to amend EPF scheme to enable members buy homes

Government will amend EPF scheme to enable around 4 crore members of retirement fund body EPFO to withdraw up to 90 per cent of their fund for making down payments while buying homes, Parliament was informed today. The amendment in the scheme will also allow the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) subscribers to use their EPF accounts for paying equated monthly instalments (EMIs) of home loans.
Under the new proposed provision in the EPF scheme, EPFO subscribers would have to form a cooperative society with at least 10 members for availing the facility. “The Government has taken a decision for modification in the Employees’ Provident Funds (EPF) Scheme, 1952, to add a new paragraph 68 BD,” Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said in a written reply to Rajya Sabha on a query about Housing Scheme for the members of EPFO.

The minister told the House that the new proviso provides that “a member of Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) being a member of a co-operative society or a housing society having at least 10 members of EPF, can withdraw upto 90 per cent from the fund for purchase of dwelling house/flat or construction of dwelling house/acquisition of site.”

The proposed proviso also provides that “monthly instalments for repayments of any outstanding payments or interest may also be paid from the amount standing to the credit of the member, to the Government/housing agency/primary lending agency or banks concerned.”

The minister also told the House that the proposed paragraph to be inserted in EPF scheme has not been notified, therefore, no targets have been fixed (for giving advances under this facility). The minister told the House that the total number of EPF member accounts as on March, 31, 2016, as per Annual Report for 2015-16, is 17.14 crore.

He further said that on an average, contributions have been received in respect of 3.76 crore members during the year 2015-16. The withdrawal facility from the Provident Fund (PF) account under the Scheme will be available to only those PF members who fulfil the conditions prescribed, he said.

Govt caps prices of coronary stents in huge relief to heart patients

Govt caps prices of coronary stents in huge relief to heart patients

The National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) on Tuesday capped prices of coronary stents, a move that will provide major relief to cardiac patients. A stent is a tiny expandable metal scaffold to open up narrowed or blocked arteries.
According to a notification on NPPA’s website, the ceiling price of bare metal stents has been fixed at Rs7,260 per unit and that of drug eluting stents and biodegradable stents has been fixed at Rs29,600 per unit. The ceiling price excludes local tax and will come into effect immediately. This price is also applicable to all stocks in the trade channel.

NPPA carried out consultations with stakeholders for fixing the ceiling price of coronary stents and considered all available information and data on prices.

“During deliberations, it was found that huge unethical markups are charged at each stage in the supply chain of coronary stents resulting in irrational, restrictive and exorbitant prices in a failed market system driven by information asymmetry between the patient and doctors pushing patients to financial misery,” NPPA said in the notification.

The Union health ministry, following the recommendations of an expert sub-committee, notified the decision to include coronary stents under the National List of Essential Medicines (NLEM) in July 2016. As per the law, drugs and devices listed in the NLEM must be sold at the price fixed by NPPA.

A bare metal stent costs Rs7,000-20,000. Drug-eluting stents, which are inserted into diseased coronary arteries and release drugs to prevent cell proliferation, make up almost 95% of the market and cost Rs30,000-80,000, while the price of a dissolvable stent in India is Rs2-3 lakh.

Almost 60% of the stents market, valued at about $500 million, is shared by multinational firms such as Abbott Laboratories, Medtronic, Meril Lifesciences Pvt Ltd and Boston Scientific Corp.

The health care industry had been lobbying hard to block the government’s move to cap stents prices as it would hurt margins.
