Blind man with a put out lamp
(I have read about how blind people walking in the dark should carry a lamp for others to see them.
But no one told me that a blind person cannot see whether light is burning or not. Each of us have handicaps and we manage with them with our own resources. If we borrow resources of others u it is not permanent. Took the idea from the post of my friend Pasupathi Nathan in face book. Thank you sir.)
Ramu gave shelter to a blind man for a few days,
And after that the blind man started towards his home,
After the dusk had set in and there was darkness all around.
Then Ramu told him , “ It is dark, go tomorrow morn.”
The blind man laughed and told him , “to me it is always dark.”
And then Ramu gave him a lighted lamp to take with him,
And said , “You may not need it , but people who can see,
Would be able to see you coming and give you way.”
The blind man took the lighted lamp and started walking .
And suddenly after some time was past ,
Some one big dashed on him and blind man was hurt.
And he asked that man. “I am carrying this light only for you to see me.”
That fat man felt very sorry and told the blind man ,
“That lamp has got extinguished and no one can see you now.”
The blind man sought excuse and told him , “No borrowed thing,
Would help you till the end” and resumed his journey with his white stick.
