Give More Receive Less It was at a rural bus terminus. Filled to the brim, the bus bound for my home-town. I was sitting by the window began reading a book. A little girl of about ten years came to me and said, "Sir, please buy these pens, five for Rs.10. I am very hungry, I will get to eat something". A half-naked-toddler-boy with matted head glued to her, may be her brother. I said, "My dear - I don't need now a pen." She responded with a question in soft tone, "Then how will we get to eat something?" I said, "I don't need pen, but you will definitely get to eat something." Telling that, I extricated from my fat soiled yellow-cloth bag two handy packets of biscuits in and handed it to her. But I was in for a total surprise beyond limit when she returned one packet and said, "Ayya! One is enough, I will share it with my brother" I was awed to hear this! I said again, "It's okay, you keep both. It doesn't matter." I was astounded with girl's response. She said, "Then what will you eat?" I was taken aback indeed! In this world, where people full of greed work for their self-aggrandizement, keep humanity aside and rob poor people left & right in the name of success, here in a laid back village, a hungry girl taught me the ultimate lesson of humanity. I said to myself, this is what soul-satisfied people look like... Don't take so much from someone out of greed that we eat their share as well. There is a fundamental principle- give more than take.
