Tale of a Balloon Seller!!
Once there was a small black boy.
Everybody would tease him for his black colour. Even his mother also would
curse her fate that she had so ugly looking child. Due to all this, he used to
feel very sad, disappointed and lifeless.
One fine day he was standing by his
window looking at other children playing in the ground. Then he saw a balloon
seller on a street corner. His eyes sparkled as he gazed at all the different
coloured balloons - red, blue, white, green, yellow. The colourful balloons in the
sky fascinated him so much that he rushed down the ground and stood near the
balloon seller for hours.
The old man selling the balloons saw the
boy hesitate, then gather his courage and approach. "Tell me mister;"
said the boy, "Do the black balloons fly as high as the others?" The
old man felt a tear forming in his eye. He picked the boy up, sat him on his
knee and said, "Look."

He let go off all the balloons. They
drifted up in a cluster, higher and higher into the blue sky, until they were
so high they disappeared.

balloon seller asked.
"Yes," said the boy.
"Did the black balloons fly as high
as the others?"
"Yes, Mister, they did."
"You see my boy, the balloons are
like people. The important thing isn't their color, or what they look like on
the outside. Rather, the important thing is what's inside. And what's inside you
makes all the difference in life."
