An old man lived alone in Margao . He wanted to dig his vegetable garden, but it was very hard work for him. His only son, who would help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation.

Dear son,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because your mother always loved planting vegetables . I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all troubles would be over. I miss you.

Shortly the old man received this telegram, “For Heaven’s sake, Dad don’t dig up the garden!! That’s where I buried the GUNS!!!”

At 4 a.m the next morning, a dozen policemen and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.

Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son, telling him what had happened and asked him what to do next.

His son’s reply was “Go ahead and plant your vegetables, Dad. It’s the best I could do for you from here”.

No matter where are you in the world, if you decided to do something deep from your heart, you can do it. It is the presence of mind or thought that matters the most!
