One day, the King came upon a servant who was singinghappily while he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he......theSupreme Ruler of the and..........unhappy and gloomy, while a lowlyservant had so much joy.
The King asked the servant, " How come you are sohappy?"
The man replied, " Your Majesty, I am nothing but aservant, but my family and I don't need too much............just aroof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies ."
The king was not satisfied with that reply. Later inthe day, he sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearingthe King's woes and the servant's story, the advisor said, " YourMajesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99Club."
" The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?" the Kinginquired.
The advisor replied, " Your Majesty, to truly knowwhat The 99 Club is...........place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave itat this servant's doorstep."
When the servant saw the bag.......he took it into hishouse. When he opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy.......wow....so many gold coins!
He began to count them. After several counts.....hewas at last convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, "What could've happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99coins! "
He looked everywhere he could..... but that last coinwas elusive. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going tohave to work harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete hiscollection.
From that day....the servant's life changed. He wasoverworked, horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for nothelping him make that 100th gold coin. He felt so unhappy all the time.... hestopped singing while he worked.
Witnessing this drastic transformation....the King waspuzzled. When he sought his advisor's help, the advisor said, " YourMajesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club. "
He continued, " The 99 Club is a name given to thosepeople who have enough to be happy but are nevercontented.......because they're always yearning and striving for that extra 1....... tellingthemselves: "Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happyfor life .."
We too can be happy with very little in ourlives.......but the minute we're given something bigger and better...... we needto watch out for our monkey minds ........ which may want even more!
We lose our sleep........our happiness......we hurtthe people around us.......all these as a price for our growing needsand desires.
So dear friends........its all up to us.......whetherwe want to join 'The 99 Club' ........or not!

Kuttappan is a --!!--
Kuttappan was bragging to his Boss one day, "You
know..... I know
everyone there is to know. Just name someone,
anyone important, and
I'm sure Iwill know them."
Tired of his boasting, his Boss called his bluff,
about Tom Cruise?" Kuttappan replies "Sure, yes,
Tom and I are old
friends, and I can prove it."
So Kuttappan and his Boss fly out to Hollywood and
knock, on Tom
Cruise's door and sure enough, Tom Cruise shouts,"
Hey Kutz!! Great
to see you! You and your friend must come in and
join me for lunch!"
They have a blast of a time. Katie Holmes even
personally packs 2
sets of Masala Dosas, which is of course specially
made by their
South Indian chef. They bid each other farewell.
Although impressed, Kuttappan's Boss is still
skeptical. After they
leave Cruise's house, he tells Kuttappan that he
knowing Cruise was just
lucky. Kuttappan says "No, no, you go ahead and just
"President Bush!" his Boss quickly retorts.
Kuttappan says "Yes, OK,
but I am telling you I don't like him very much, he
is very cunning,
anyway let's fly out to Washington."
And off they go. At the White House, Bush spots
Kuttappan on the
tour and motions him and his Boss over, saying,
"Kuttans! What a
surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting. The CIA
just informed me
Osama is heading for the Pakistan Border, Hey
Kuttans, are you still
on speaking terms with Osama, maybe you could
confirm the information
for me? Oh never mind! You and your friend come on
in and let's have
a cup of coffee first and catch up."
Well, the Boss is much shaken by now, but still not
After they leave the White House grounds, he
expresses his doubts to
Kuttappan who again implores him to name anyone
else. "The Pope!"
his Boss replies.
"Sure! This I like,
I've been meaning to see him, he is not keeping too
well y'know" says Kuttappan. "And I have a lot of
friends in Vatican;
it's like my second home! And me and the Pope go
back a long way,
surely this will be a good trip"
So off they fly to Rome. Kuttappan and his Boss are
the masses in Vatican Square when Kuttappan says,
"This will never
work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these
people. Tell you
what, I know all the guards, so let me just go
upstairs and I'll come
out on the balcony with the Pope."
The Boss shakes his head unbelievably and says "Yeah
Still so, Kuttappan disappears into the crowd,
headed towards the
Vatican. Sure enough, half an hour later Kuttappan
emerges with the
Pope on the balcony, waves to the crowds with the
Pope and takes
But by the time Kuttappan returns, he finds that his
Boss has had a
heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
Walking his way to
his Boss' side, Kuttappan asks him, "What happened?"
His Boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until
you and the Pope
came out on the balcony and the man next to me said,
and "Who's that
on the balcony with Kuttappan?
