Learning from experience

Few days back I was in a supermarket with my parents. We all were picking up things we needed from different sections. When I looked over to see what my mother was up to, I saw her talking to a young girl. Curious to know who she was, I went there. That’s when I noticed that they were talking about mangoes.

The young girl had come alone to do her shopping. She was standing in front of a section of mangoes but she didn’t know how to select good ones. First she called her mom to ask how to select good mangoes. But even after asking when she couldn’t understand, she asked my mother to help her select good mangoes.

Mom was teaching her how to check whether the mango is good or not. They both seemed to be having a long conversation about it. In the end they selected few mangoes.

I couldn’t stop noticing the act of goodness my mom did. She gave the girl all her time and taught her how to select mangoes from the knowledge and experience she had. Selecting a mango may sound like a small thing but its the thinking that matters. My mom not only helped her select the mangoes but she also taught her how to select. So the next time the girls wants to buy mangoes she knows what to look for.

Just imagine if our elders shared all the knowledge and experience they had and the young people accepted it (after all logical reasoning), wouldn’t we become much wiser and wouldn’t this act of sharing become an act of goodness???

Here is what exactly happened.

My sister has taught my nephew to always share food and toys with his friends while eating and playing.  She has told him that he should always share his food with his friends if while eating his food, his friends are around him and also share his toys while playing with friends.  He was also made understand that even if any friend does not share his food or toy with him, he should continue sharing his stuff with that particular friend along with others.  This knowledge has gone…
