Who is poor?
I chanced upon a story which got me thinking. It impressed me hence I thought I had to share it here. Aren’t we all guilty of this? Haven’t we all been judgmental at some point or the other? Somewhere down the lane we forgot that “Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.
Now read on:
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….
“The world is full of nice people… If you can’t find one, be one
