An Anthropologist proposed a game to a group of African tribal children.  He placed a basket of treats and candy near a tree. And made them stand 100 meters away.  And announced that who ever reaches first would get all the treats in the basket.
When he said ready steady go...  Do you know what these small children did?
They all held each other's hands and ran towards the tree together, divided the treats among them and ate them together and enjoyed it.
When the Anthropologist asked them why you did so?    They said 'Ubuntu'.
Which meant -  'How can one be happy when all the others are sad?'
Ubuntu in their language means -  'I am because, we are!'
This is a great message for all generations.
Let all of us always carry this attitude within us and spread happiness, wherever we go...
Let's have an Ubuntu Life.   I am because we are
Ubuntu  (/ʊˈbuːntʊ/uu-boon-tuu;  Zulu  pronunciation: [ùɓúntʼú]) is a Nguni Bantu term roughly translating to "human kindness."
It is an idea from the Southern African region which means literally "human-ness," and is
often translated as "humanity toward others," but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity".
