9 short stories worth reading, feeling and forwarding to all those dear to you

  1. FALL and RISE
    Today, when I slipped on the wet tile floor a boy in a wheelchair caught me before I slammed my head on the ground. He said, “Believe it or not, that’s almost exactly how I injured my back 3 years ago .

    Today, my father told me, “Just go for it and give it a try! You don’t have to be a professional to build a successful product. Amateurs started Google and Apple. Professionals built the Titanic

    Today, I asked my mentor — a very successful business man in his 70’s — what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.

    Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.

  5. TRY and YOU shall KNOW
    I am blind by birth. When I was 8 years old, I wanted to play baseball. I asked my father- “Dad, can I play baseball?” He said “You’ll never know until you try.” When I was a teenager, I asked him, — “Dad Can I become a surgeon?”. He replied “Son, you’ll never know until you try.” Today I am a Surgeon, just because I tried!

    Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9–11–2001, you carried me out of world trade centre.

    Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”

    Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

    Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”

Great Pointers Hitesh!! With a proper title and appropriate tags, the blog can attract a lot of people.


‘#android’ is an irrelevant tag to the blog and confuses people.


Thanks for pointing it out, I didn't put it intentionally.


Yeah. I also thought so. Now the blog title and tags makes a lot of sense. 👍

Was reading articles tagged with android and was thrown in confusion in the first time when I read the blog.

Thanks for understanding, I am an Android application developer and I just started to write about Android, but this is something about of syllabus and its not my word but its something which touch my heart so I decided to put it on dev.to but due to hurry I couldn't cross check all the thing and I made mistake, sorry for that, and Thanks again for draw my attention.
