Story : Poverty Cannot Limit Love

Poverty is no limit for love

A very poor man lived with his wife.

One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.

The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.

The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.

He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short haircut.

She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.

Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

Snippet Thoughts : Money is a Spoiled Brat of Human Parents

I would like to call money a spoiled brat of human parents.

When everyone wait in a queue money cries to jump the queue and it will get special premium entry to worship GOD.

When justice remains same for all on book, money cries and ensures justice remains only on books.

When a talented kid lacks the opportunity to learn in a good infrastructure, money cries and buys seats for donations.

When an ethical man follows any procedure, money cries and make him a fool by dealing under the table.

When people starve need help desperately, money cries and goes to hibernate on illegal bank accounts.

When a life is at stake in a hospital, money cries and plays business with death.

When a woman is cornered, money cries and pushes her into selling herself.

When humans earn for living, money cries and pushes them to live for money.

When morality gets sick, money cries and redefines immorality as morality.

At last When society got selfish and then also money cries. It wants them to be more greedy for possessing it.

Write and feed a child for an Year #1 : Money and Poverty vs Education and Children

I would like to begin this with an expert “As per UN reports, about 21,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes. This is one person every four seconds. Most of the victims are children.”

My first question to you, yes the one who reads this. “Have you ever been hungry?” may be when you skip a meal or your breakfast. Some worst cases you might have missed food a day or more, which would be an unlikely experience that you ever had.

So how does it feel to die without food? Horrible isn’t it. It is the cruelest way to die I would say to starve till death.

Another shocking information, it is not that we do not have enough food in this world to feed those who die of starvation. It is a social and economic stipulation which stops them from accessing the food.

The most important reason is MONEY. We need money to buy anything and everything to eat. Those who have less money are prone to hunger. We call it poverty. Hopefully, we all may know who are poor and who are rich! Because they do not live in a second world or in Mars. They live right beside us in our neighbourhood.

But why we do not think about them? Why are not we helping them?

hunger

You may counter me with a “NO” But if we are helping them really then why there are poor people still who die without food? So logically we are either not helping them at all or our helps are not helping them actually.

When you spot someone poor, the immediate recovery solution is money. We can help them with some money to buy some food. What’s next?

Shall we continue to help the one with a constant supply of money? Well, we may do if government grants us permission to print money on own. Even our bank balances are limited.

We need to create them opportunities to earn money. It is not a help that an individual can do but together we can do it. We need to build a system. Organisations like the UN and so many genuine NGOs are trying to do the same. However, still poverty exists.

Sadly, we are the very reason for that. As a society, we need to make so many radical changes in our routine way of living and perspective about life.

I can keep talking about the reasons and why and how this system works and leads to poverty, which I am not going to do. Because whatever I may share, you already knew it. Something is wrong with our system, which we need to correct.

But where that change begins? The change begins with learning. i.e. Education. More we understand our system of life with an intention to remodel it effectively and aim for a better society, more changes we can inculcate.

Who need to be educated? Not everyone actually. The prime focus should be on the younger generation. Children needs proper education. A proper education means not just attending the mark factories to get a job and to do the same old mistakes what we are doing now! They need an education for life. To bring a change to this world. To invent an alternate for this money-centric world. This a different topic which I will write later in detail. Now the actual problem is, not all our children get access to education.

Reason – Again Poverty – Money. The cycle remains the same. What is the immediate antidote for those kids who were sent to work instead of schools? They need monetary help as step 1.

Once they get education, it is a well-known fact that they will eradicate poverty from their respective families. Maybe we need to help a generation with direct money, till they get their opportunity to stand on their own.

Organisations like Akshayapatra are doing the same, with monetary help to kids to get their food. Though various state and national governments. also doing such food schemes, still nothing wrong to reach out more kids, who are still missing the radar of rescue of the Govt.

Even for writing this post they’ve committed for helping a kid by donating food. Their purpose is not to gain popularity or raise funds via such posts, but to engage people and increase awareness of helping one another. So I am sharing this first post now. I will come up with four more posts as one can post a maximum of five posts in their blog.

If you are a blogger. Please post five posts and feed five kids. Your words may give them a smile. The change may not be radical, but we will be remembered as forefathers who had begun the change process.

Documentary : Can we Remove Money?

This Documentary talks…

“Countries everywhere are facing debt crises today, precipitated by the credit collapse of 2008. Public services are being slashed and public assets are being sold off, in a futile attempt to balance budgets that can’t be balanced because the money supply itself has shrunk. Governments usually get the blame for excessive spending, but governments did not initiate the crisis. The collapse was in the banking system, and in the credit that it is responsible for creating and sustaining.

Contrary to popular belief, most of our money today is not created by governments. It is created by private banks as loans. The private system of money creation has grown so powerful over the centuries that it has come to dominate governments globally. But the system contains the seeds of its own destruction. The source of its power is also a fatal design flaw.
The flaw is that banks advance “bank credit” that must be paid back with interest, while having no obligation to spend the interest they collect so that borrowers can earn it again and again, as they must in order to retire the debt. Instead, this money is invested in various casinos beyond the borrowers’ reach. This leads to a continual systemic need for more new bank credit money, more debt with more interest attached, to prevent widespread defaults and deflationary collapse.”

If you do something kind to anyone, knowing that they can’t do anything to you in return, then that is a pure Love. Rest all is fake, which fades along with money and time.
