This is a true story that happened in Japan.
In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan tears open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet.
He sees this, felt pity for it, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was first built.
The lizard has survived in such a position for 10 years! In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind boggling.
Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years without moving a single step - since its foot was nailed!
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came from, another lizard appeared, with food in it's mouth.
Ahh! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 10 years...
Such love, such a beautiful love! Such love happened even with this tiny creature ...
What can love do? It can do wonders! Love can do miracles!
Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 10 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can't.
I was touched when I heard this story and started wondering about relationships between family members, friends, lovers, brothers and sisters. As information and communication technology advances, our access to information becomes faster. But the distance between human beings... is it getting closer as well?
