    Inspirational Story "Last 3 Wishes of King Alexander...

    This might be an old and repeated many times, but still human nature needs a reminder.....

    There is very instructive incident involving the life of Alexander,
    the Greek King.


     


    Alexander, after conquering many kingdoms, was returning home.
    On the way, he fell ill and it took him to his death bed. With death staring
    him in his face, Alexander realized how his conquests, his great army, his
    sharp sword and all his wealth were of no consequence.

    He now longed to reach home to see his mother's face and bid her his last
    adieu. But, he had to accept the fact that his sinking health would not permit
    Him to reach his distant homeland. So,

    The mighty conqueror lay prostrate and pale, helplessly waiting to breathe
    his last. He called his generals and said, "I will depart from this world soon,

    I have three wishes, please carry them out without fail." With tears flowing down .
    Their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their king's last wishes.

    "My first desire is that," said Alexander, "My physicians alone must carry my
    coffin." After a pause, he continued, "Secondly, I desire that when my coffin is
    being carried to the grave, the path leading to the graveyard be strewn with gold,
    silver and precious stones which I have collected in my treasury.

    "The king felt exhausted after saying this. He took a minute's rest and continued.
    "My third and last wish is that both my hands be kept dangling out of my coffin.
    "The people who had gathered there wondered at the king's strange wishes.
    But no one dare bring the question to their lips. Alexander's favorite general kissed
    his hand and pressed them to his heart. "O king, we assure you that your wishes
    will all be fulfilled. But tell us why do you make such strange wishes?"

    At this Alexander took a deep breath and said: "I would like the world to know
    of the three lessons I have just learnt.

    Lessons to learn from last 3 wishes of King Alexander...

    I want my physicians to carry my coffin because people should realize
    that no doctor can really cure any body. They are powerless and cannot
    save a person from the clutches of death. So let not people take life for
    granted..

    The second wish of strewing gold, silver and other riches on the way to the
    graveyard is to tell People that not even a fraction of gold will come with me.
    I spent all my life earning riches but cannot take anything with me. Let people
    realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth.

    And about my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, I wish
    people to know that I came empty handed into this world and empty handed
    I go out of this world."
    With these words, the king closed his eyes. Soon he let death conquer him
    and breathed his last. . . . .


    Never take some one for granted,
    Hold every person Close to your Heart because you might wake up one
    day and realize
    that you have lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones."
    Remember this always in life.
