A GUY FROM NGO: Do you know this Monday we distributed chocolates among poor children? *HR: Why?
THE GUY FROM NGO: What why? Don’t you understand? Those are poor kids. They don’t get to eat chocolates often. And you must see the smile on their face when we gave them the chocolate? I would donate every penny I have just to make those smiles eternal. HR: Good.
THE GUY FROM NGO: What? HR: Donate every penny you have!
THE GUY FROM NGO: What do you mean? How would you know? You never donate. You can never enjoy the joy of giving? HR: may be.
THE GUY FROM NGO: what? HR: I don’t find it logical what you call giving.
THE GUY FROM NGO: What? Do you know what are you speaking? HR: yes. I am speaking about the thing you did on Monday.
THE GUY FROM NGO: What? What about it is illogical? HR: How much nutritive value does a chocolate have?
THE GUY FROM NGO: I don’t know. But why do you want to know about a chocolate’s nutritive value? HR: What was the price of chocolate you distributed?
THE GUY FROM NGO: 15 rupees. Their parents will never buy them those costly chocolates. HR: What is the price of 1Kg apple of good quality?
THE GUY FROM NGO: hmmm…. 80 Rupees per kilo. HR: How many apples do you get in a kilo?
THE GUY FROM NGO: 4 to 5. HR: Let us be on the lower side. Say 4 in a kilo. Do you think the nutritive value of an apple is more than that of the chocolate?
THE GUY FROM NGO: Yes. HR: Do you think the poor people you are helping can afford a 20 Rs apple to their children?
THE GUY FROM NGO: No. HR: Good.
THE GUY FROM NGO: But….we were just helping them. HR: still you think you really did?
THE GUY FROM NGO: But we didn’t think that much. HR: Did someone tell you not to think?
THE GUY FROM NGO: You talk as if you never make mistakes. We are humans we make mistakes. HR: yes I do. But I never try to alleviate the guilt by making others realizing that they also do mistakes.
THE GUY FROM NGO: It is impossible to converse with you…Okay!!...What now?. What according to you I should do now? HR: You still don’t want to think yourselves?
THE GUY FROM NGO: Isn’t it your responsibility to propagate such ideas? HR: What did I do right now?
