India, a place where the people with golden heart live in here but somewhere in the race of making money we forget who we are? This below article is a classic example of that !
Who is rich? The one who is happy for his profit in business or the one who is happy for getting a 7000 salary job in this city. Who is poor? The one who is losing in his multi crore business or the one who is upset after losing his wallet in the market, even if it doesn’t have any money!
Who is poor? A wealthy woman goes to a saree store and tells the boy at the counter “Bhaiya, show some cheap sarees. It is my son’s marriage and I have to give to my maid.” After sometime, the maid comes to the saree shop and tells the boy at the counter “Bhaiya, show some expensive sarees. I want to gift my Mistress on her son’s marriage” Poverty is in the mind or in the purse?
Who is rich? Once, a lady with her family was staying in a 3-star hotel for a picnic. She was the mother of a 6 month old baby. “Can I get 1 cup of milk?” asked the lady to the 3-star hotel manager. “Yes madam”, he replied, “But it will cost you money.” “No problem”, said the lady. While driving back from hotel, the child was hungry again. They stopped at a road side tea stall and took milk from the tea vendor. “How much?” she asked the tea vendor. “Madam, we don’t charge money for kid’s milk”, the old man said with a smile. “Let me know if you need more for the journey”. The lady took one more cup and left. She wondered, “Who’s richer? The hotel manager or the old tea vendor?
Sometimes, in the race for more money, we forget that we are all humans. Let’s help someone in need, without expecting something in return. It will make us feel better than what money can. Coffee never knew that it would taste so nice and sweet, before it met milk and sugar. We are good as individuals but become better when we meet and blend with the right people…. Stay connected. “The world is full of nice people… If you can’t find one… Be one !
