This post will sure make a difference!!
One fine evening, wen I was orkuttin, I came across a video with titled “Value of Rs 500”. Its just a short merely 2 min video…wher ppl aging 10 to 60 ve been telling their views on “ wat thy ll do if thy get Rs 500”..indeed a gud quest…
I found d video to b interesting…so added to my fav list.. My mind started to think wat shall I do with 500 Rs…as many said n d video..just lik goin for buffet treat..or buy girlish stuffs etc..
But it was my friend “Prasad” wrkng n Infy in pune…who made a difference in my thought….
Presenting the below msg frm him wen asked him casually wat he ll do with 500 Rs…
B4 continue reading the post, just watch d video..
Tis s how his reply mail started…..
“”There s an add in infy notice board fr providing children with a school kit which costs 250 per student. I may ve given the money for it.
I wnt agree that i would ve surely done it. In reality i would ve spent it to my will. Since i ve seen this video, it will strike in my mind when i ll do some thing useless with that money. Tht's y i say this video is a true awareness.
We spend money lot of time on party or treat but we dont think of ppl who are there without basic food for a day.
We should start doing the following …Never waste food.
When we have a opportunity to help for someone’s education do it with out a second thought.
When you want to share your happiness on somedays like your birthday or some happy occasion try doing something for the unable like an orphanage or a old age home spend the day with them at the EOD you will feel your happiness has multiplied to infinity (Trust me on this i have done it once).
I know it is easy to say but difficult to follow but no harm in giving a try.
I don’t know will i do this from now on, but i am sure my mind will ping me when i try to do some unwanted spending. so i may reduce it and do as said above.
If you are already doing it continue, else think about it.””
Without a doubt, it’s a very gud msg….a msg which made me to think….kudos to him..
The video doesn’t convey to stop spending...ther shud be mix of spending, saving & lending… There are millions of blessings that we enjoy everyday. We take all of them for granted and hence don't attach any value to it.
If this blog post helps some one like me to think about what 500 rupees is to someone indirectly need of it, it's worth the effort…..
