Just got this. Amazing show of how positive an effective early insistence on and teaching of good neighbourliness can have!! Caring does lead to sharing!!! My eyes misted over!!
“UBUNTU – A very nice story from Africa … The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture in Africa. An Anthropologist proposed a game to the African tribal children.
He placed a basket of sweets near a tree, and made the children stand 100 metres away. Then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.
When he said ‘ready steady go!’ Do you know what these children did? They all held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.
When the Anthropologist asked them why they did so,
They answered ‘UBUNTU’.
Which meant –
‘How can one be happy when the others are sad?’
Ubuntu in their language means –
‘I am because we are!’
A strong message for all family members. Let all of us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go. Let’s have an Ubuntu Life.
I AM BECOS WE ARE!”
Good Day 4 God Dey.
