UBUNTU – A very nice story…!

The motivation behind name given to Ubuntu Operating System in Computer.

An Anthropologist proposed one game to the African tribal children.
He placed a basket of sweets and Candy’s near a tree.

And made them stand 100 metres away.

And announced that who ever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.

When he said ready steady go…

Do you know what these small children did?

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

When the Anthropologist asked them why you did so?
They said ‘Ubuntu’.

Which meant –
‘How can one be happy when all the others are sad?’

Ubuntu in their language means –
‘I am because, we are!’

A msg for all generations.
Let all of us always carry this attitude within us and spread happiness, wherever we go..

    I’d really like to know the name of the African “state” though. Because we’re actually a continent

    There is an interconnectedness that binds us to each other as a species. That’s why we are outraged by untold suffering and starvation in some parts of the world.
