Father , Son and Elephant
This is a folk story from rural villages of Tamilnadu , India.
Son : Daddy , What is this ?
Father : This is Elephant , son !
Son : But , what these people are doing ?
Father : They are killing it , my child
Son : But … why they are killing the elephant ?
Father : They are killing the elephant , so that they can cut the ivory task and make elephant statues out of it “
Simple but powerful. Short but power packed. How neatly and crisply it riducles the acts of men !!!!
Am not going to interpret the story. I leave it to you. Think about it , relate it to you , me , we , society in general , look around you , look at the world ……. find the meaning of the story from what you see in this world nowadays.
