Its a simple story again from my childhood, a very popular, but encouraging and has been lost as we grow from our childhood to our young age. This is a simple story of a very old Gardner, from the times when king used to rule the territories. This old gardner used to take care of the plants and plant one tree daily into his land.
One day, the king on this royal chariot goes out and watch this old Gardner working very hard in the shiny sun. The king stops there to get some water and the Gardner, thinking of its duty serves the king with water and the fruits from his garden. After a full good apetite, king ask the Gardner, why he plant new trees in-spite it has too many trees in his garden and go for a nice living without too much efforts.
Gardner gives a very gentle reply. He tells, when I was small, my grandfather and father used to plant new trees in order that when these trees will grow up, it will be used to serve it for me and my child in the future and I am following the same tradition. When my grand child will get bigger, they used to enjoy the same privilege, what I was enjoying now, given by my fore-fathers.
The story is very simple, it shows a very important message to the present generation…What we will left for our future generation, when we die. We have already enjoyed a very good privileges from what our ancestors has been left for us….fresh air, trees, lands to cultivate, a healthy environment, but the question is are we doing the same for our future and passing our culture to them.
The mentioned story teach us to left a good privilege for the generations to come, its a thought, which meant to give the same to our future, when we already enjoyed and lost it, because we haven’t reap the same on time. Through this, its a message to deliver that its the time, when we have to take decisions and plant new trees, so that our future will understand the lost culture and maintain the same for their future, so the cycle continues.Writer — Vibhore Goel
