Indian Dish

                 The image is from https://zhuanlan.zhihu.com/p/23713514.

An Indian man, Kumar, went to the Sabrina Hotel in Kathmandu to order a meal. He  decided to sit down by the window. When the meal was delivered, he saw two pairs           of eyes staring at the food on his table outside the window.

The eyes belonged to two kids who made a living collecting recycling materials to sell. Kumar waved to them to come in and asked them what they wanted to eat. The boy  pointed to the dishes on Kumar’s table, and Kumar ordered two identical sets of dishes     for them.

When the hot dishes were served to the children, the younger sister politely pulled on      the sleeve of her brother’s coat and said:

“Maybe we should wash our hands first!” So they all washed their hands first and then quickly ate the delicious food in front of them.

Kumar, too, was happy as he watched the siblings’ expressions of satisfaction. The         little brother and sister got up after they had finished, thanked him politely, and left.

Kumar asked the waiter for the bill. However, when he received it, he saw that there       was no price on the bill. Instead, there was only a sentence that made Kumar start    crying:

“We can’t bill for human decency at the cash register.”

無法計算的人性價值

印度一男子庫瑪(Kumar)到加德滿都Sabrina飯店點了餐後,便選了靠窗的位置坐下,                    當餐點靠近時,他看到窗外有兩道視線緊盯著自己桌子的美食.. ....

庫瑪揮揮手要他們進來,問他們想吃什麼,男孩指了指庫瑪桌子的菜,於是庫瑪點了兩份                    一模一樣的餐給他們。

熱騰騰的菜能讓孩子們面對,妹妹卻有教養地拉拉哥哥的衣角說:

“或許我們應該先洗洗手!”於是他們都先去洗了手,然後很迅速地把眼前的美食吃完。

小兄妹吃完後起身,很有禮貌的道謝後離開了。

庫瑪向服務生要了帳單,一看帳單上面沒有價格,只寫了一句讓庫瑪熱淚盈多餘的話:

“我們收銀機無法計算人性的價值”。

連我也被感動了,視線變的模糊了!
真正的台獨,是思考、發現台灣人民與土地的永續發展關係。也唯有當妳(你)用心思考、發現這種關係之後才能明白:妳(你)的未來在哪裡。
