Ubuntu – I am because we are…

Ubuntu

Heard that there is this story behind the picture – not sure if its true but story caught the essence.

An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?

UBUNTU means I am because we are.

While looking at this, I remember Bob Marley’s quote “Open your eyes, look with in…Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?” We are blessed to have everything but not enough people around us and there, they have minimals to none, but they are together. Believe, its time to segregate between needs and wants.
