That day, in front of the window of a hotel in a city, I saw a team leaving a funeral. It seemed that I was on the way to the crematorium. I saw that there was no sorrow in the crowd. Maybe they were all confused, death, what it means…
A few years ago, I was fortunate to have gone to India with the original boss. In this country, more people may feel that they are mostly stupid people because of racial system, but when I saw a translator, I changed this view. .
That day, the interpreter received news that his grandfather died, and we were investigating investment intentions nearby. Because his family is considered to be moderate, his leader drove the car directly to his house after asking for our opinion. After we went, In the mood of understanding and respect, I waited for his leader to leave after the sacrifice, but I saw that they did not go out for a long time. I was concerned about this kind of thing, so I secretly looked at what happened in the courtyard. , I saw that people did not cry, but the adults took the children in line, and then touched the bodies of the dead, and the adults were whispering to the children, the children nodded, or fell Tears or Muran, etc., I was very surprised that they did this, but that kind of occasion can not ask more.
After the leaders came out, because there was no translator, we went directly back to the hotel and went to do our own thing.
In this way, after a day, the translation came back, and we continued to investigate. My question is still in my mind, but I never asked. On the last day, we will leave India. As a thank you, when we return to dinner, I endure Can’t help it, quietly asked the translator about the day.
The translator can’t see any sorrow. He said, that’s okay. We have the habit here, that is, when the grandparents are gone, the adults will tell the children that the grandparents have passed away, and touching the body of the deceased is to tell the children, this Is death!
Cognitive death? I asked with some consternation.
The translator nodded and said, yeah, it’s fundamentally to tell the children that life is limited, and learn to cherish every inch of your life.
I”oh” let me understand.
The translator looks at my stunned god, and then says that in fact, you Chinese may not understand it, because in your tradition, the concept of”death” is taboo, everyone likes to be said”longevity without borders”, but that is not to deceive yourself. ?
I nodded and said, yes, sometimes, we should learn to face reality, just as you taught children from childhood, how to face the death of a loved one.
The translator said that tradition is only good and bad, just like our caste system.
After I heard it, I admired him instantly. He saw my eyes and smiled, and said nothing…
In fact, no matter what, for an individual of human life, your life is all false. Only at the moment of death, you will feel that you have really lived, remember to cherish, but it is too late, as for the future Things, the things you tell others to do, are all vanity. If you have to say anything else, it is the most correct thing to teach your child what to face.
