The Giver and the Taker

The Giver gives and his ego says

what a great person I am!

The rich entrepreneur turns into a philanthropist,

the public sings paeans about his charities and

he is exalted to a pedestal, where he can see all the

ants scrambling up to the grains thrown by him!

The actor gets a huge applause, the surgeon saves a life;

their ego interprets the clamor around to think of themselves as Gods

That you are in a position to Give is your huge efforts combined with

so many factors happening right simultaneously to provide you

the passage to the position of Giver!

Be grateful, bow down in humility to the Takers, who have provided you

with this unique opportunity to Give!

This is one of the most coveted roles, you have been

chosen to enact!

Strange is the case of Taker…

He looks seemingly happy…….

But he is full of contempt, full of rage for

the Giver,

In his heart, he waits for the day, when

his Giver’s position crumbles down to be at par with his…..

He accepts at the worst with hatred and

at the best with self pity!!!

Let the Taker take with his hands joined and full of gratitude

It is his share which is being passed through the Giver…

Who said that Taking was much easier job than Giving!

Whether a Giver or a Taker in life,

Play both the roles to the hilt!!!

  1. Amazing! The words aptly describe human psychology in both situations – when he is a ‘Giver’ and a ‘Taker’
    Emotions & thought processes in both situations have been beautifully weaved into words. Keep writing, Nisha!
