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.

Powerful Quote #177 : Rich and Poor

Rich and Poor

A poor man cannot give because he doesn’t have. If a rich man cannot give, then he’s also poor. ‘Giving’ is actually the only difference between a rich man and a poor man, not the bank balance!

A Thought can Change #2

Words by Din1

The Gap between the rich and poor is the simple reflection of a Society’s fortune. Evidently those countries which have lesser gap, enjoys a happy life. Philosophically, it is the truth that crime arises from two places, one from where money is excessive beyond needs and another where there is no money available even for a basic need.

Imagine, the origin of birth of a rich / poor kid is not in their hands. Since then, everything is different, what they eat, wear, commute, habitat, play, etc. Why not we just exclude education from it and make it equal for a better tomorrow? Why we designed such an educational system which favours only the rich with opportunities not the poor? The ball is in our court.

Appreciate : A Man provides Lunch for 1 Rupee for the poor : Venkatraman

“One day a woman from a Government hospital came to buy idlis for Rs 10. Since there were no idlis that day, she went away disappointed. She didn’t have extra money to buy something else to feed her ailing husband. That’s when I realized that there are people who actually survive on only Rs 10 a day”

Venkatraman500 kilometers from Chennai, in the small town of Erode, is this restaurant, a lifeline to the poorest of the poor who come for treatment at the Erode Government Hospital. Shri AMV Homely Mess run by Venkatraman serves lunch for a token amount of one rupee to the attendants of the unfortunate patients admitted at the hospital.

Venkatraman, said, “One day a woman from a Government hospital came to buy idlis for Rs 10. Since there were no idlis that day, she went away disappointed. She didn’t have extra money to buy something else to feed her ailing husband. That’s when I realized that there are people who actually survive on only Rs 10 a day. While other people waste so much money on unnecessary things. That’s when I decided that I should give food to the needy for one rupee.”

Venkatraman doles out 30 such tokens every day. “Though I am not very rich, I am able to manage this as other customers pay the full amount,” informs the son of a former railway employee. 

 Customer said, “Venkatraman’s Rs 1 lunch scheme has helped a lot of needy people. Nowhere else can we purchase anything for Rs 1 a day.” Venkatraman simple scheme has fed thousands of needy people. Other customers pay Rs 40 for the same lunch

But why should the token cost Re 1 at all? Venkatraman has a logic: “If we give something absolutely free to somebody, they won’t respect it. Only if they give something from their pocket, even if it is as meagre as one rupee, they will value it.”

Though this world is predominantly inhabited by selfish people, the acts of a few good souls make it a better place. Venkatraman is clearly one such good samaritan.
