Thinking today as the final day of life

                          Thinking today as the final day of life

These words may sound pessimistic. But it gives a strong boost to our will power. Impossible things look possible.

There was a theater in the city. Many plays ( dramas ) were  played there. There was an illiterate youth serving as the door keeper of theater.

He was watching every show. Even he was dreaming to take part in a play. But he didnt have prior knowledge of acting . He was the regular spectator of show , whether the hall is full or not ! By this way, he has bi hearted  every single word spoken in drama.

One day , a main artist of the play which was about to air , was suddenly fell ill. Owner of drama company didnt know what to do. Without the main artist , drama can not be played. News spread and our door keeper has heard the news.

He came near the owner and expressed his desire to play the part. Owner brushed away the thought and said " Play is about to begin. You dont know the dialogues to say. You dont look like a capable man. I cant trust you. "

Door keeper said he know all the dialogues. He insisted the owner to give a chance for acting .

Finally owner agreed . But he said this is going to be his first and last chance. In coming days , he must not ask for any chance to play a role.

Door keeper agreed. Play started. He began to play the role thinking that this time is the final time to play a role. All he remembered was , he has to do it right as it is his final chance. He did it with great enthusiasm and every one were dumb founded about performance.

After the play was over , owner came near the door keeper and said " You have done a good job, thinking that this is going to be your final chance. Now onwards , you are going to play the main role in the drama ".

Simple thinking has changed the life of door keeper.

What makes the curd to taste sour ?

Curd , if made naturally , tastes sour .

We add acidic substance like few drops of already available curd to milk to get fresh curd .

Milk contains lactose . A bacteria called lactobacilus converts this lactose into lactic acid , thus making it sour .

The build up of lactic acid because of bacterial activity , causes the pH of milk to drop . When pH of milk becomes less than 4.6 , the particles of milk protein casein coagulate , and form curd .

Curdling is due to milk becoming sour .

Tulu Saying ....

eru uppunaga ball ijji , ball uppunaga eru ijji .

ಎರು ಉಪ್ಪುನಗ ಬಲ್ಲ್ ಇಜ್ಜಿ , ಬಲ್ಲ್ ಉಪ್ಪುನಗ ಎರು ಇಜ್ಜಿ . 

Translation --------

eru =  ಎರು    = ox / buffalo
uppunaga = ಉಪ್ಪುನಗ   = when available
ball =  ಬಲ್ಲ್    = rope
ijji =  ಇಜ್ಜಿ    = is not there / available

Summary ----

It shows the paradox of life . We all have experianced this in our life. When we want something , at that time it is not there . But when the thing is available , we don't want that.

Here too , a farmer was having an ox. He wants to tie it . But he is not finding a rope at that time . Because of that , ox fled from the scene. Then he spotted the rope to tie the ox. But now ox itself is not there ! Then what is the use of it ?
