A bus full of passengers was traveling while suddenly the weather changed and there was a huge downpour and lightening all around. They could see that the lightening would appear to come towards the bus and then go elsewhere.

After 2 or 3 instances, the driver stopped the bus about fifty feet away from a tree and said, “We have somebody in the bus whose death is a certainty today. Because of that person everybody else will also get killed. I want each person to go one-by-one and touch the tree trunk and come back. For whomsoever death is certain will get caught up by the lightening and will die. But everybody else will be saved”.

They had to force the 1st person to go and touch the tree and come back. He reluctantly got down from the bus and went and touched the tree. His heart leaped with joy when nothing happened to him and he was still alive. This continued for the rest of the passengers who were all relieved when they touched the tree and nothing happened to them.

When the last passengers turn came, everybody looked at him with accusing eyes. This passenger was also very afraid and reluctant. Everybody forced him to get down and go and touch the tree. With a fear of death, the last passenger walked to the tree and touched it.

There was a huge sound of thunder and the lightening came down and hit the bus - yes the lightening hit the bus, and killed each and every passenger inside the bus. It was because of the presence of this last passenger that earlier, the entire bus was safe and the lightening could not strike the bus.

Sometimes we try to take credit for our achievements, but this could also be because of a person right next to us.

One day an aeroplane cleaner was cleaning the pilots’ cockpit when he saw a book entitled “How to fly an aeroplane for beginners. Volume One”.

He opened the first page which said, “To start the engine, press the red button.”. He did so and the airplane engine started. He was happy and opened the next page. “To set airplane moving press the blue button.” He did so and the aeroplane started moving at an amazing speed.

He wanted to fly so he opened the third page which read, “To let the aeroplane fly, please press the green button.” He did this and the plane started to fly.

He was excited!!!

After 20 minutes of flying, he was satisfied and wanted to land so he decided to go to the fourth page.

The fourth page read, “To learn how to land, please purchase Volume Two at the nearest Bookshop”!
