Are you crazy or something?


A snake fell on fire and could not get out. A man saw it and tried to get it out of the fire. The snake bit the man while getting it out of the fire and he was forced to let it down on the fire because of the pain. Suddenly, the man looked sorrowful and thought that it was his fault. He helped the snake out again. A woman was standing close to the scene and she came to the man and said, "Are you crazy or something?" 

The man answered, "No, it's my nature to help."  The woman was surprised and could not believe her eyes. Any messages from that short story!!!

  • Let me think.....people should act wisely, if you are crazy to save a snake or a tiger, you must be treated badly becuse they can not not judge your intention....but I feel  very bad now and then thinking some incidents where and when humans are so mean....

    • Valo achi tumi, Bet! We have to act wisely. Do you think that guy was crazy? Thanks for your nice comment on the discussion.


    People who are kind to animals, they are kind to each other, too.

  • After reading this story I ponder.. it's better to be good than evil, but, anyway,  be prudent doesn't hurt!

    Thanks for sharing, Dara!


    • Terima kasih kembali, Nan! Sekali! I agree with you, being good is better than being evil. I really appreciate your nice and sincere words. 

  • Hello Teacher Dara,

    This is a peristent will to help. So great example. However, generally, not many people can do that. It's not easy. Not impossible, though.

    I may persistent, but I will see again the situation.

    Thanks for sharing this discussion.
