Story: The Kids' Race

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 meters 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 " I AM BCOZ WE ARE "

Sir,

Excellent story. Indians can never do this. Parents should teach this.
