He Who Would Sow Well, Must Reap Well

He Who Would Sow Well, Must Reap Well

This saying has a positive effect, it encourages us to do good so that we also receive good from others and most of the time this statement holds its ground but not always. Recently we receive a stab on our backs by one of our close relatives which made me rethink about that statement.

Let me explain you the details. We ( my brother and I ) are manufactures of men's attire. We decided to open a retail outlet and since we both remained occupied in office and factory my brother decided to call our relative who at that time was facing financial crisis due to loss in business. Moreover we also observed that there were no chances in near future for him to recover those losses and came back on track. We offered him partnership in that retail outlet and when he asked about the investments we assured him keeping his financial condition in mind that it was not much while we made the initial investments.During this period he cleared most of his dues and started preparing for a manufacturing unit like us which we ignored. Lots of petty things happened in between and finally it was decided after three years that we would leave that shop because there was not much profit in it or I could say that he was looking for his own profit neglecting our investments.

It was during the time of accounts that he showed his real colors and blamed us for cheating with him. It appeared hilarious to us since he was maintaining the accounts by himself and all sales and purchases were first passed his eyes and then came to us only he could change those records. In these three years his condition has improved financially but I am sorry to say that he deteriorated morally. He changed his eyes and talked in higher tone. My brother hurt more by his behavior because he was the one who brought him for the shop and gave him partnership even after disagreement by me and our mother.

But anyways he took few lacks of money by some manipulations in accounts and his conscience. Loss of money is repairable but he has lost respect and reputation from us which is irreparable. Now coming back to the saying, ' He who would sow well,must reap well'. After looking back to the whole episode I think it is right we have reaped well in this, we have learned a lesson not to trust anybody blindly. In the end it is good heart and inner beauty of your character which matter the most. His face betrayed us but his soul exposed his character completely. 

All other relatives stand by us but we still gave him the desired amount of money. We got attracted and misguided by the superficial looks of a person but it's the inner soul which matters the most.So always do good for others but be cautious in today's world.

  1. I am sorry to learn of this bitter experience that you have had to face, Cifar.
    Sadly, this is fairly common.
    "Where wealth accumulates, men decay"
    You have rightly cautioned everyone to beware. Trust is at stake.
    I believe- Character & good values will triumph, if not in this world, then definitely in the next :)
    Bear wishes to all of us.

  2. looks always deceive and such people are always on a lookout for potential victims.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 

I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
