Live for others

Long time ago, an old man was planting mango trees. His son asked him,”What are you doing?” The old man politely replied, “I am planting mango trees.” The son asked his father,”Do you know that you will not get mango from these trees as they have grown old.” The father replied,”I know that very well. But the mangoes which we are gathering were not planted by us, someone else has planted them. so we are planting for others.”

The moral of this small story is that we should live for others rather than living for ourselves.
