Suitable Title for passage
FACT Based – 3
A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.
After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. “Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?” “I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.
The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.” Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it somewhat. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again it apologized to the bearer for its failure.
The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house.

Shortened version of the following story:Nasruddin Hodja took his donkey to the market place and sold it for 30 dinars. The man who bought it immediately put it up for auction. “Look at this fine animal!” he shouted to passersby. “Have you ever seen a better specimen of a donkey? See how clean and strong it is!” And he went on to list the many qualities of the animal. At the end of his sales talk a man said he would give 40 dinars for it. Another man offered 50. A third offered 55. Hodja who was watching was amazed at the interest everyone was showing in the donkey. “What a fool I was to think it an ordinary animal,” thought Hodja. “It is an incomparable beast, one in a million…” He suddenly realized that the owner had received a good offer and was about to close the bidding. “75 dinars once…” said the man.”75 dinars twice…” “80 dinars!” said Hodja.
