There was a tree beside which a saint lived they both were known to solve people’s problem. Give tree the problem and consider it solved. Procedure was very simple you provide tree some water and that tree will give you its fruit. The fruit will have the answer for you situation. You wish and you are provided with the solution like if your Wife and mother are quarrelling you will be provided with two fruits and the saint will tell you to give one to your wife by saying your mother brought this for her and another to your mother saying it’s from your wife. Similarly, same tactic for quarrel between Husband and wife Property quarrel you give one fruit one party and other to another party in form of peace treaty Job issue you provide your boss fruit for his good health by saying sir your health is the most important thing for company. Marriage issue give this fruits to opposite party as good luck. The old saint used this simple old trick to solve the condition which was considered most tedious. Few years later, a wise man heard of this tree visited and found out what the saint was doing he questioned why is he cheating people? Old saint said humans believe in level of comfort so for them anything helping them to solve issue with ease is miracle, they are the one who stopped using their intellect and believes in superstition over their common sense. Soon the people got to know that this tree was not at all magical they got offended felt cheated and criticised saint calling it a shameful act. At this moment only thing they felt was frustration and irritation of being made fool off making them forgot how desperate they were in problem, they forgot that there was a day when their last hope was this tree. But on continues bickering of villagers saint replied very calmly he said “we people will only consider someone importance till we are in trouble, once the problem Is sorted we walk away. This tree was in the secluded area of village for more than 30 years visited by everyone once a year, nobody bothered to water it in summers rather broke its branches for fuel woods and fun, everybody visited it when it flowered fruits. This tree was the symbol of any selfless thing that helped people in problem. Now you people visit this tree every day, respect it and water it then only enjoy its fruit. You feel dejected and cheated when a human does such an act and call them selfish but when you do the same you feel it’s right because a tree doesn’t have any feeling. Everybody needs something in return for anything. You need answers this tree needs water. We all work in sync. If somebody goes off the radar it’s our job to get them back on track. That tree was not at all magical but the real magic was the saints way he wanted people to have taste of their own medicine he used tree as his agent.
This is the bitter truth of our so called modern society, we all do this once in our life, using people for our advantage and then dumping them. It’s a human nature to run for betterment, but not at the cost of others sentiment. Those people who we don’t bother about had wasted an ample amount of time for us. They were present both mentally and physically even at certain moments emotionally also. But we returned their favour by saying a thankyou or even the worst “I never told you to do this, you did it “. We humans will only work if we get something in return say it in office we work hard to earn respect and income in relationship we will only work hard if we are reciprocated will equal emotion. We are so engrossed in our own problem pain suffering that we don’t bother about others suffering, We will never think about other parties mental status if they don’t laugh at you joke or if they don’t cry on your breakup we consider them foes, but what if that person is suffering from heavy baggage that maybe you can share and solve. We agree or not everyone has faced this scenario once in their life and felt dejected this attitude of opposite party made us do the same thing of disregarding someone in need the same way we suffered. This vicious cycle never ends unless we all try to put an end to it. Even a small act of thankfulness without consideration for return will bring happiness to both the parties and may help someone to relieve themselves from excess baggage.
