UBUNTU

UBUNTU is a very nice story from Africa.

The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture in Africa.

An anthropologist visiting Africa proposed a game to the tribal children …

He placed a basket of sweets near a tree.

And made the children stand 100 metres away. 

Then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.

When he said, ‘Ready steady go!’ …

Do you know what these children did?

They all held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.

When the anthropologist asked them why they did so,

They answered ‘Ubuntu’.

Which meant –

‘How can one be happy when the others are sad?’

Ubuntu in their language means –

‘I am because we are!’
