{تفريح و سرگرمي}, [22151] Moral Story of Day

Be Content About Your Life

Wonder if any of you ever had the feeling that life is bad, real bad…
and you wish you were in another situation? Do you find that life
seems to make things difficult for you, work sucks, life sucks,
everything seems to go wrong?
It was not until yesterday that I totally changed my views about life;
after a conversation with one of my friends.
He told me despite taking 2 jobs, and bringing back barely above $1000
per month, he is happy as he is. I wonder how he can be as happy as he
is now, considering that he has to skimp his life with the low pay to
support a pair of old-age parents, in-laws, wife, 2 daughters and the
many bills of a household.
He explained that it was through one incident that he saw in India.
That happened a few years ago when he was really feeling low and was
touring India after a major setback. He said that right in front of
his very eyes, he saw an Indian mother chopped off her child's right
hand with a chopper. The helplessness in the mother's eyes, the scream
of the pain from the innocent 4 years old child haunted him until
today. You may ask why did the mother do so, has the child been
naughty, was the child's hand infected??
No, it was done for two simple words — to beg. The desperate mother
deliberately caused the child to be handicapped so that the child can
go out to the streets to beg. I cannot accept how this could happen,
but it really did, just in another part of the world which I don't
see.
Taken aback by the scene, he dropped a small piece of bread he was
eating half-way. And almost instantly, flock of 5 or 6 children swamp
towards this small piece of bread which was then covered with sand,
robbing of bits from one another. The natural reaction of hunger.
Striken by the happenings, he instructed his guide to drive him to the
nearest bakery. He arrived at two bakeries and bought every single
loaf of bread he found in the bakeries.
The owner is dumb-folded, but willing, sold everything. He spent less
than $100 to obtain about 400 loaf of bread (this is less than
$0.25/per loaf) and spend another $100 to get daily necessities. Off
he went in the truck full of bread into the streets. As he distributed
the bread and necessities to the children (mostly handicapped) and a
few adults, he received cheers and bows from these unfortunate. For
the first time in life he wonder how people can give up their dignity
for a loaf of bread which cost less than $0.25. He began to ask
himself how fortunate he is as a Singaporean. How fortunate he to be
able to have a complete body, have a job, have a family, have the
chance to complain what food is nice what isn't, have the chance to be
clothed, have the many things that these people in front of him are
deprived of…
Now I begin to think and feel it, too. Was my life really that bad?
Perhaps…no… it should not be bad at all…
What about you? Maybe the next time you think you are, think about the
child who lost one hand to beg on the streets.
