Heading back from a tiring day, I noticed some trees (usually which you see around the roads while traveling). One thing which stuck my attention was – even if they (trees) are neighbors to each other, the kind of leaves (green or yellow) and whether there are fruits or not and for that matter, if there are even leaves or not – depends on the “Nature” of the tree.
Ten different trees – kept under same circumstances i.e. provided with good environment, water and sunlight, have different “Nature”. One would flourish and be green, another would bear fruits or flowers but still there would be one section – without leaves or fruits or flowers. Cactus would be one example to support this point – it would give back thrones even if it were taken care by the richest man in the world. Rose is another good example, which gives beautiful flowers along with thrones.
The one, who’s “Nature” is to flourish – to give back some good to the world and at the same time be humble about it – would at least give shade in a ‘killing summer’ noon, even it was grown at an average place.
Similar concept applies to the mankind. ‘Have’ or ‘Have-not’ will not affect, if one is ready to bring a change. Whether god had been really kind to have not given a chance to be Ambani’s sons or daughters, brothers or sisters – a Malala, taking birth in one of the worst places in the world – facing maximum difficulties, would still be able to stand up and become an international ‘piece of inspiration’ for all.
What’s more dangerous – is to always be ‘complacent’ or always feel ‘dissatisfied’. Both are extremely opposite emotions, but equally responsible for anyone’s devastation.
The only solution to the issue is to be more open-minded, flexible and accept that there is ‘scope for improvement’. At the same time, one should be ‘thankful’ and have ‘gratuity’ in what one has – be it knowledge, money or social status.
With the technological advancements, and people being more active on social networking sites – where one gets a chance to peek into other’s life, just remember that each one of us is an ‘individual with different mindsets and backgrounds’. Our ‘Nature’ is different – so is our destiny. It will not be fair to make comparisons in any two – whether one belong to any class of society.
All we need to do is – ‘be respectful’ for today, always ‘be reminded’ of yesterday and ‘be optimistic’ about future.
