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.
TREAT Others the Way You Want to be TREATED~ “Service to Humanity is service to God”
Whenever you want to know how rich you are,
Never count your currency or assets, just try to drop a Tear & count how many hands reach out to WIPE it. – That’s true richness.
Have a Nice Weekend!
With Best Regards,
