Making A Difference

Yesterday, I was out whole day for attending a seminar. Heard a story, which i think wasn't new to me, and I don't even think to you too, but would like to share here with you....

An old man had a habbit of going for a walk every day at 5am. His house was just next to the shore and he used to walk around the shore everyday. This was one of such days that he came out for the walk. After walking some distance he saw a very young child dancing on the shore at some distance. He became curious that what at morning 5am, this child is upto. He increased his pace to reach to the boy.
When he reached, he realized that the boy isnt dancing but throwing the star-fishes into the water. He became amazed and asked the boy what he is upto! The boy replied that Sir, the sun will be out in some time, and then these star fishes will die because of the heat. So I am trying to put them into the water to save their lives.
The old man said, that there are thousands of star-fishes around you, how does it matter? The little boy just picked up a star-fish, threw it into the water, looked at the old man and said... Sir, I just made a difference!!!

The whole point of the story is that whether we put in small efforts or big, somehow they all matter. Thinking how will it, doesnt make any!!! :)

Also here I request all of you to help out the Bihar flood victims with whatever you can, rather than thinking how will it make a difference. You never know that the amount may be enough to save the life of a little child at least for one afternoon!!! :)

Leaving you, with the picture of the disaster.
