The River and The Gold


Once upon a time, there was a village, at the bank of a river. People in the village had the belief that the river sometimes used to bring pieces of gold and leave at the bank of the river.

There lived a small child, who heard about the tale of the river and the gold. He then decided to make his fortune from the gold that the river brings. He therefore spend much of his times at the bank of the river searching for the gold and waiting for the gold. Days past and years past. The child grew up to a young man and as he grew up, his believe became more and more stronger. He believed “in these past many years gold has never been brought by the river, so it will be brought soon at any time, why not to wait some more”. He made a hut at the bank and lived there waiting the day that the river will some day bring the piece of gold flowing and he could make his fortune. Years passed and decades passed. He grew old and died, but the river never brought the gold flowing to him.

He believeb so desperately on the tale of the river that he could never think about quiting to wait for the river. He waited his whole life for the river, he saw various size and changes in the river and water year by year. He prayed the river for years, then blamed and then cursed still then he could not stop himself from expecting a fortune from the river. He could have done many things to make his fortune on his own, but he never tried because he could never give up the mindset he had in his mind to make the fortune.

There are many such mindsets in the mind of Nepali people that I see daily making people look upon other to make self fortune.

I have listed below the major two mindsets that reminded me the tale of the :”The River and the Gold”

1. Government should think of the good and bad of its people. It should be responsible in creating the employment opportunity to its people. It should be powerful enough to bound the people in its plans and strategy to bring prosperity and fortune to every people.

I just question myself: Should government think of the good and bad of me or me myself? Who can think better about me, myself or some other people in government? Should I look at the government to feed my two inns? Am I to hide my weakness to compete to find the job you want and blame government to not to find the job you want? Should the government be that much powerful to bring prosperity and fortune to you or other people? What if it becomes powerful and corrupt handles it?

2. One should get the value of education. If I have completed a bachelors/ masters degree and I do not find a job in the place I want with the salary and other benefits, people do not know the value of education. It is just because I did not have proper family background and / or links to support me.

I just question myself: Which is valuable education or knowledge ? or skills? Do we need an automated system of life style to fix up study this subject and get your job there with that salary and benefits? If so, what will be difference in some sort of software and human life? Do not I have to look at myself and analyze why I am not getting a way to employ? Does it mean, if I do not find the job of my criteria, people around are wrong or the system is wrong? Or do
I have to filter my criteria? Is my family background everything to support my employment or I lacked some thing others too to fail. Is it the fault of the links to not to be in your accessible or my fault to create and or manage the links?
