Do you carry a stone in your heart ... ? 

Nasrudin’s boss was a tyrant who used to bully and harass the docile Mulla Nasrudin. He had made made Mulla Nasrudin's life miserable.

One day the boss suddenly died of a heart attack.

Just before his funeral all members of his staff went to pay their last respects to the departed soul.

Suddenly Nasrudin picked up a big stone and threw the stone at the dead body of his boss.

Everyone was shocked and surprised at Nasrudin’s strange behaviour, but before anyone could say anything Nasrudin calmly explained, “All these days I was carrying a stone in my heart. Today I have cast it out.”

Do you carry a stone in your heart ... ? 

Just throw it out...!!!
