Sharing a very lovely anonymous story I read. Please, you should read it. The wise will understand its implications. The fools will ‘copy paste’ the same and forward to other WApp groups.
An Owner used to tie his Donkey in the nights to a tree so tgat it will not run away or disturb others. One night a Ghost cut the rope & released the Donkey free.
The Donkey went & destroyed the crops in an adjacent Farmer’s land. Infuriated, the farmer’s Wife shot the Donkey and killed it.
The donkey’s Owner was devastated at the loss. In reply, he killed the farmer’s Wife.
Angered by his wife’s death, the Farmer took a sickle and killed the donkey’s Owner.
The Wife of the donkey’s owner got so angry that she & her Sons set the farmer’s house on Fire.
The farmer, looking at his house turned into ashes, killed the Wife and Children of the donkey’s Owner.
Finally, when the farmer was full of regret, he asked the Ghost : “Why did it kill them all?”
The Ghost replied, “I killed ? No I killed nobody. I just released a Donkey that was tied to a Rope. It is you all who released the Devils within you which resulted into everything Bad that occurred thereafter.”
Today’s Media & Social Medias are like that Ghost.Unemployed and not knowing what to do, It keeps releasing the Donkeys on a daily basis and then people react & argue with each other, hurt each other, without giving a second thought.
In the end, the media & social media (like that Ghost) dodges all responsibilities by saying : “What did I do ? I only …..”
So, it’s our responsibility that we ‘Do Not’ react on every Donkey released by the Media & forwarded on Social Media by such infamous men who wish to sit behind and enjoy the ‘Donkey and the Farmer’ show.
I suggest we rather value & preserve our relationships with our friends and let the community of Ghosts die of boredom..
