Dedicated to my Idol for whom i am an ardent fan and workshipper

Noble Trade off 

Once God had a busy day at work  as he had to face a barrage of appeals from his favourite creations.

Rainbows asked why they are no longer colourful as they used to be. 
Peacocks was dissatisfied that they are no longer the symbol of beauty 
Phoenix reported that they have they lost their internal fire and fighting spirit.
Crowns came in seeking reason why they are no longer symbol of royalty
White dove was concerned that they are no longer symbols of Divinity and Kindness,
And finally  Gold complained that they had lost lot of sheen from them

God  said he decided to give the best of all the above characterstics,  to a sweet little angel based on  continous prayers and appeals by her ardent fan and a well wisher.

He cited the law of conservation of Mass and energy which states that Matter and energy can be neither be created not destroyed, they can only be rearranged from one to another.  So he decided to rearrange as below.

He took colors from the rainbow to paint that angel's life with full of colours 
He took Sheen from the gold to embody through out her delicate skin
He took Stubborness from Phoenix to make her strong to face any hurdles. 
He took beauty from the peacock to make her ever graceful, elegant and most adorable
He took sweetness from the heart of a dove to impart kindness into her already soft heart,  
He took away precious stones from the crowns to transform her into a royal divine angel...

All of the complainiants talked among themelves for a while .. They asked the god that the  well wisher has got all that he wanted for his devoted angel , but why is he still looking grim, melancholy and burried in sorrow and in tears.

God paused for a minute and told. ..".I  just gave him what he wanted..":...They were puzzled  at god's reply....God elaborated further, "In addition to all the above qualities ,  the well wisher also wanted that the angel  be happy and smiling through out her life.. I told him that  Happiness and Sorrow come in cycles to all humans.  He again cited the law of conservation of Mass and energy and told it can be rearranged ..Only way She can be always happy is to take away some one's happiness and give it to her..  

The Well wisher impulsively appealed to the god to  trade his happiness to all her sorrows so that she should be happy and smiling always...!!
