An anthropologist showed a game to the children of an African tribe …
He placed a basket of delicious fruits near a tree trunk and told them:
The first child to reach the tree will get the basket.
When he gave them the start signal, he was surprised that they were walking together, holding hands until they reached the tree and shared the fruit!
When he asked them why you did that when every one of you could get the basket only for him!
They answered with astonishment: Ubuntu.”
That is, how can one of us be happy while the rest are miserable?”
Ubuntu in their civilization means: I am because we are.
That tribe knows the secret of happiness that has been lost in all societies that transcend them and which consider themselves civilized societies ……. !!
One thought on “Ubuntu – African Civilisation”
