A LESSON THAT HAS ITS OWN 'UNIQUE VALUE!'


A Father took out a piece of Paper and colored the whole of it with Saffron..
In the middle, he drew a big Circle and colored that with Grey..
Next, he drew a smaller concentric Circle in it and colored it with Red.. 
Finally, he drew a number of small Circles within the Red Circle and colored them all Green..

Pointing to that drawn on the paper the dad said,
  • “Dear Children! This Green Circle is our home.. It is a sacred place where we, a few close family members live together.. Here, each individual living has his/her own Rights and and the grown ups in addition have their responsibilities.. The members in their home live all along with a caring attitude alone and nothing less of it.. Like this many homes are there around us represented by the other Green Circles.. And here the Green is a symbol of one’s freedom and peace in life..
  • The Red Big Circle you see, is called the State in which many such families live together.. The State has certain rules to be followed amidst the interactions between family members and outside the family circles and all those have to be adhered to in total else the State can physically stop me from acting further.. Here Red forever stands as the symbol of caution and discipline..
  • Further to this, the bigger Grey Circle encompassing the Red represents the moral and ethical responsibilities of me beyond the State rules where it's equally a duty with me to be answerable to the Almighty on the additional good done by me for people around beyond my minimum duties.. Here the Grey Color for ever stands for that additional giving and serving..
  • Finally the Saffron Color you see in the entire page represents certain sacrifice from me towards the people around me and living with me.. Here, I purposefully forego some of my own rights and become useful to people beyond their expectations and thus become one among them.. This too would automatically become my duty when part of the ignorance falls off from me wherein the distinction between ‘Mine’ and ‘Not Mine’ lessens to some extent.. The Saffron Color here represents the sacred qualities of sacrifice and containing..”
The father concluded,

“Our Green is thus ever influenced by the Red, Grey and Saffron as we live in the world.. It's ever better we live in our life with a mixture of this Green, Red and Grey and further look up for Living in Saffron Zone too at our own Freedom where feasible and thus flourish!"
