 Who is Rich ??

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 100 bucks". "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.

thanks Laxmanji for sharing this real time needed post and thanks the writer friend too.
In both the cases the course of action is taken from the mind and the individual mind which has created images for every person and thing deals with it forcibly and quite conditionally when the situation for dealing arises.

in the first instance the rich lady and the maid goes to buy sarees, the difference in their selections were due to images in their mind for each other. of course the maid remains number 1 due to her kindness.

the second instance,the tea vendor also remain No. 1 due to his sheer kindness.

Both the instance clearly show that those who consider human value and respect them would not give no. 1 to the money and money made status.

This is really indian culture of living.

great thoughts have more value only when they are put into action. Many have great humane ideas but they fail to practice them, hence this disparity among rich and poor.
