Story of #UBUNTU!

The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture in Africa.

An Anthropologist proposed a game to the African tribal children.

He placed a basket of sweets near a tree and made the children stand 100 metres away.

Then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.

When he said ‘ready steady go!’

Do you know what these children did?

They all held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.

When the Anthropologist asked them why they did so, They answered ‘Ubuntu‘.

Which meant – ‘How can one be happy when the others are sad?’

Ubuntu in their language means – ‘I am because we are!’

A strong message for all generations.

Let all of us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go.

Let’s have a Ubuntu Life.

The Story of an Eagle living with Chicken!

Once upon a time, at a large mountainside there was an eagle nest with 4 large eagle eggs inside.

One day, an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down to a chicken farm, located in the valley below.

The chickens knew that they must protect the eagle egg. Eventually, the eagle egg hatched and a beautiful eagle was born.

Being chickens, the chickens raised the eagle to be a chicken. The eagle loved his home and family but it seemed his spirit cried out for more.

One day, the eagle looked to the skies above and noticed a group of mighty eagles soaring. “Oh,” the eagle cried, “I wish I could soar like those birds.”

The chickens roared with laughter, “You cannot soar like those. You are a chicken and chickens do not soar.” 

The eagle continued staring at his real family up above, dreaming that he could be like them.

Each time the eagle talked about his dreams, he was told it couldn’t be done.

That was what the eagle learned to believe. After time, the eagle stopped dreaming and continued to live his life as a chicken.

Finally, after a long life as a chicken, the eagle passed away.

Fly high like Eagle

Moral: You become what you believe you are. If you ever dream to become an eagle, follow your dreams, not the words of chickens.
