 A city boy, Raj, moved to the village and bought a donkey from an old farmer for Rs.1000. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. 

The next day the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry Rajji, but I have some bad news, the donkey died while I was bringing him here."

Raj replied: "Well then, just give me my money back." The farmer said: "Can't do that. I went and spent it already." 

Raj said: "OK then, just unload the donkey." 

The farmer asked: "What you are going to do with him?" 

Raj: "I'm going to raffle him off." (Note: To raffle is like lottery - draw lot to a group of people each paying the same amount for a ticket and there is a big prize for the people who win.)

Farmer: "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!" 

Raj: "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead." 

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?" 

Raj: "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at Rs. 10 each and made a profit of Rs 4990 with the donkey worth Rs. 1000 as the prize.

Farmer: "Didn't anyone complain?" 

Raj: "Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his Rs. 10." 

Moral of the story - No situation is so bad that it cannot be turned around. You need to just think hard. So look at your glass always as half full (positive attitude ) rather than half empty. Do not lose hope.
