Ubuntu: A very nice story...!

An Anthropologist proposed one game to the kids of African tribal children.

He placed a basket of fruits near a tree.

And made them stand 100 meters away.

And announced that whoever reaches first would get all the fruits in the basket.

When he said ready steady go...

Do you know what these small children did?

They all caught each other's hands and ran towards the tree together, divided the fruits among them and ate the fruits and enjoyed it.

When the Anthropologist asked them why you did so?

They said 'Ubuntu'

Which meant: 'How can one be happy when all the others are sad?'

Ubuntu in their language means: 'I am because we are!'

Let's all of us always carry this attitude within us and spread happiness, wherever we go...!
