A man had 3 sons. He gave them 100 rupees each and asked them to get something that will fill a whole room.
All boys thought what to buy which could fill the whole room?
One son went to the market and bought the grass for 100 rupees but when he tried to fill the room with it, it couldn't fill the room.
The second boy went to the market and bought cotton but as he started to fill the room with it, it again remained empty.
The third son bought one candle for just 1 rupee and as he lit the candle in the room, the whole room was full of light.

It is not necessary that only voluminous things can fill the space, light, fame are also such things which fill the space without taking keeping anything in the space.

God's Wife

An eye witness account from New York City - on a cold day in December, some years ago: A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said, "My son, why are you in such deep thought staring in that window?"
"I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes." was the boy's reply.

The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked him if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her. She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel. By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes. She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him... She patted him on the head and said, "No doubt, you will be more comfortable now." As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears in his eyes, asked her - "Are you God's wife?"

Our little help to a needy can give him a great relief.

1st he thought of marrying her to the Moon.... (he thought he was the most handsome in the Universe).... so he went to him with the proposal. But The Moon replied that his beauty was not his own, he depended on the Sun.... so the Sun is mightier than him (of course the girl was not satisfied with the saint's proposal to the Moon)

2nd he went to the Sun as the Moon told him, so thinking that the Sun was mightier than the Moon.... He got the reply form the Sun that the clouds were mightier than him, because the clouds could block his rays by shadowing him (of course the girl was not satisfied with the saint's proposal to the Sun)

3rd he went to the cloud, but he replied that the air was more powerful than him because he could drift the cloud anywhere in the sky with his might (of course the girl was not satisfied with saint's proposal to Megh Raaj)

4th he went to Vaayu but the Vaayu told him that the Parvat Raaj were more powerful than him as he could stop him from blowing (of course the girl was not satisfied with saint's proposal to Vaayu Dev)

5th he went to Parvat Raaj (Himaalaya) thinking that this time he would be able to settle her marriage to him... but to his surprise Parvat Raaj replied that a mouse was more powerful than him as he could drill a hole into him so Mooshak Raaj is more powerful than him (of course the girl was also not satisfied with saint's proposal to Parvat Raaj)

So finally he came to Mooshak Raaj....  and Lo what happened? The girl's cheeks turned pink by seeing Mooshak Raaj.....

It is very difficult to change the nature of a person. Since she herself was of mouse species, she could not have chose anybody else, however good he was, than a mouse as her husband.
