101 stories for you and me by Sri J P Vaswani.

I asked my dad, “Will God ever fulfil our wishes? Or is it only a belief and a myth? “As an answer to my querry, my dad narrated a small real time anecdote and
explained how God helps the Bhaktas. It was a real hair splitting story.

I was totally flabbergasted for a while. I questioned my dad again, “How do you know such a live, wonderful and heart rendering event? My dad told me that he read it in a book written by Poojya Sadhu J P Vaswani. The book is titled 101 stories for you and me. He further promised that he would get the book for my reading.

I happened to lay my hands on this miraculous book. I could not stop reading this book till the end. It opens up your heart. You will turn a new leaf in your life after reading this book.

Often, I used to argue with my dad, “What’s wrong if I eat chicken or mutton?” My peevish thoughts vanished, once I read the story given below.

How Much Flesh Do You Need?

A little girl came to Sadhu Vaswani and said, “I love your teachings more than words may tell. You have urged, again and again, that we must keep away from flesh diet. Meat eating, you say is murder. But what shall I do? I have tried to live on vegetarian diet. It is so tasteless. It kills my appetite.”

Sadhu Vaswani asked us to bring a big knife. It was quickly brought. Holding the knife in his hand, he said to the girl. “My child, tell me how much flesh do you need? I shall cut it from my body and give it to you. But pray, do not have dumb, defenceless creatures killed!”

The words moved the heart of the little girl. Tears trickled down her cheeks as she said, “I promise, I shall never touch flesh of living creatures!”

Now I am in class IX from Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s Public School, Jubilee hills, Hyderabad. If this book has done so much good to me, I am sure it will be of a great help to all readers. If you miss it, I am sure you are missing the most valuable thing in life.
