The New Recruit

"Do we perform best is worst situations?"

It was his first day onboard LISA, fondly called so by the ship’s captain.

Being eyed by everyone around, he was the new recruit. 
Always having faced favourable situations and proud of his achievements, he never failed in anything he did.

The captain walked towards him.
“Ever faced a storm onboard?”
“Gear up, boy. Today, we are expecting one.”

"No matter what we face,
there are only 2 choices: take it the way it is, make it the way you want.

The Last Pancake

Satish was a pancake seller. He was singled out by his fellow tradesmen in the alley as he kept to himself, the real reason being a disfigured face.

He had meager profits and ate 1 or 2 leftover pancakes as he lived alone. One day a family of street beggars went pass the stall. The children started wailing and throwing hunger tantrums.

“Give me pancakes for rupees 15” said the irritated mother. Satish counted the pancakes, only two were left. A single pancake was for rupees 15. He divided a pancake and gave it to the 2 children. The children vanished around the corner, after gulping down the pancakes, following the other members.

Now, a boy of 5 with a pockmarked face in tattered clothes, who apparently belonged to the recent visitors, came near the stall. He eyed the display counter with a hungry look. Satish as if having seen himself in a mirror gave him the last pancake with a mug of water.
