We were generally talking about life and control on life. There is a celebration happening soon. When an uncle asked my mom to come for it, My Mom said “Agar Uparwala chahega, I will reach” (If the one staying above us is willing, I will come)
The uncle looked surprised and replied with a smile “Chaturvediji kuch nai bolenge, aap aaiye na”(Mr. Chaturvedi will not have an objection, Please come)
We all had a good laugh.
This got me thinking.
I was recently with my ngo kids. I shared this incident with them. We were laughing, At this time, one of the kids said “Didi, Humare toh upar bhi koi nai rehta” All other kids burst out laughing…except the kid who said it.
He missed the real joke I guess. or did he?
Isn’t it true, the reason they stay where they stay is because “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed.” We are all on planet earth to learn whatever we are here to learn and get the H@!! out. Each one is struggling with something or the other or we wouldn’t be here. Right?
The ones without uparwala struggle lot more than we do na? Lets hope we can help the ones who are without uparwala. Pls
