Yesterday, when I was mylotting, I received a text message in my mobile. It was really touching. It's the only sms that made me think a lot. This is thee sms... A 10 year old boy went to an ice-cream shop & asked: How much a cone costs? Waiter said, "Rs. 15". The boy started counting how much he had in his purse. Then he asked, "How much a small cup cost?". Waiter said, "Rs. 12". Then the boy ordered a small cup. He had it, paid the bill and left. When the waiter came to pick the empty plate, he was touched! The boy had left Rs. 3 as tip for him! This is the humanity of a small boy. You might have noticed. Kids are more innocent, loving, sympathetic and affectionate. But when they grow up they lose this innocence, humanity, love and affection much. Why do this happen? I have this doubt for a long time. When we were children, we had these qualities. But when we grew up, we have turned a little bit cunning and selfish. What is the reason for this? I can't find a proper reason. Could you?

that is a really tocuhing story, I think that while you grow up, you grow to be a part of the society, which learns you that you can't trust anybody, that you need all your money and you need few selected best friends in order to protect yourself..but as a child you usually don't think about this kind of stuff, that's the best explanation I can give you

Well life teaches us its lessons so that we stand a chance in the survival of the fittest. Its not our fault but you can say, nature promotes and supports only the fittest so we in turn have to learn a little bit of cunningness and selfishness. Also when we are small, we don’t earn the money ourselves so we have no problem in parting with it…but as adults we earn money with our hard work so we appreciate it better. In any case, this boy has good manners too, as its nice if you leave a tip at the restaurant.
