We cannot exist for long in
this wide world without the help and support of so many others.
Just try to find how many different persons were involved in
bringing to you your morning tea today:
tea garden owners, managers, technicians, tea tasters, labour,etc.
many people who helped transport and deliver the tea to your town.
People who work for the railway or trucking company in many capacities.
Don't forget the original inventors!
tea distributors and retailers in your neighbourhood, their
wife, mother, or domestic who went and bought the tea.
count of people who helped bring your morning tea already goes to
several thousands. However, to make the tea and drink it you also needed
- Pots, lids,
- Kettle or
stove to boil the water
electricity or other energy
inventors and scientists who originally conceived or discovered or
designed all these things
of people who helped you get the morning tea would already have
exceeded a few hundred thousand (or lakhs) !
If you have patience toattempt to find the number of different people,
living or dead, who helped you get so many other commodities,
materials, devices, etc. to supply your "simple daily needs" you
would, most likely lose count somewhere, but would firmly
come to the conclusion that even your eventless daily life involves the
contributions and support of millions of people!
Far from having compensated them, you may not have even have been able
to identify or count them.
All you can
do is to remember that every minute of your existence depends on so
many other people. You would then feel grateful, and try to be helpful
and kind to all you meet.
