(Part 1)

Once upon a time in the city of ASHA there was a small town called USHTA.

In this small town lived two very prominent kids whose names were VOHU-MAN and POK-U-MAN.

VOHU-MAN and POK-U-MAN had heard a lot about each other but never had an opportunity to meet each other.

VOHU-MAN always focused on doing nice things and POK-U-MAN tried to slice and dice the nice things.

One day, VOHU-MAN and POK-U-MAN were both invited to the same party.

When they met each other for the first time, VOHU-MAN said "Hi" to POK-U-MAN.

In return, POK-U-MAN started misbehaving with VOHU-MAN by passing nasty remarks.

But to his amazement, the more he misbehaved the happier VOHU-MAN became.

This intrigued POK-U-MAN!

After a while, he just could not stand this HAPPY attitude any more.

So, at the end of the party being in a state of awe, POK-U-MAN asked, " VOHU-MAN, I really do not understand the nature of this HAPPY behavior of yours!"

And VOHU-MAN said, "You see, we all came to this party with a gift. You have yours and I have mine. We can choose to dislike each other’s gift, but we can still respect each other. Now, tell me POK-U-MAN, if I were to give you a gift and you choose not to accept it, then what would happen to that gift?"

"YOU get to KEEP it," said POK-U-MAN.

"Exactly," said VOHU-MAN. "Likewise, the same thing happens to your insults. I CHOOSE NOT TO ACCEPT YOUR INSULTS, SO ‘YOU’ GET TO KEEP THEM."

And POK-U-MAN said, "WOW, I like that concept. I would like to get to know a little bit more about you. Can we meet again!"

"It will be my pleasure," said VOHU-MAN, "How about a picnic on the GOOD-IES Harbor?"

"GOOD-IES Harbor! What’s a GOOD-IES Harbor?" said POK-U-MAN.

"Its a place where people meet to harbor GOOD THOUGHTS, GOOD WORDS and GOOD DEEDS," said VOHU-MAN.

"So, how do you get there?" asked POK-U-MAN.

"Well, its pretty simple. First, you get on the path of GOOD THOUGHTS, then using your good mind you make a right into the lane of GOOD WORDS, then you follow your heart until it merges into GOOD DEEDS, and eventually you end up at the GOOD-IES Harbor," said VOHU-MAN

"OK, How about if I bring the sandwiches, you bring the refreshments and we see each other tomorrow at seven in the evening?" asked POK-U-MAN.

VOHU-MAN blew a hug and POK-U-MAN winked an eye, to bid goodbye.
