Life from another perspective

A Father took his son to a village to show what poverty is all about.


After the trip, he asked his son about poverty…

The son replied :

We live as a nucleated family, they live in big extended families…

We have only 1 dog, they have a farm full of animals…

We have a small pool, they have a long river…

We’ve lamps, they have stars…

We’ve a small piece of land, they have large fields…

We buy food, they grow theirs & eat fresh…

They have many friends to play, we have less friends & no time to meet them, so we have to play with Computers & PS2…

Their fathers have time for their children & our fathers don’t…

They have happiness, we have money…

The boy’s dad was speechless…

Then the boy said ”thanks dad for showing me how poor we are…”

Life is all about how we see, interpret and accept things..!
