KISWAHILI: MIKONO NI MZAZI WA MTU

Chanzo cha methali hiyo kinaangalia mikono na mtu. Mtu akiwa mtoto mdogo husaidiwa kwa kubebwa mikononi mwa mama yake au mikononi mwa walezi wake. Lakini mtu huyo akikua huwa na uwezo wa kujilisha mwenyewe kwa kutumia mikono yake. Ndiyo kusema kwamba, ‘mikono ni mzazi wa mtu.’

Mikono hulinganishwa kwa mzazi wa mtu anayefahamu kumtunza mwanae. Mzazi mwenye huruma huwafundisha vizuri watoto wake namna ya kuitumia mikono yao kwa kulijiletea maendeleo.

Mzazi huyo hutumia mikono yake katika kuwafundisha watoto wake hao namna ya kufanya kazi kwa bidii ili waweze kuifikia hatua ya kupata mafanikio ya kujilisha wenyewe na kuwatunza wenzao maishani mwao. Ndiyo maana watoto hao hukua wakiwa na ufahamu wa kuitumia vizuri mikono yao katika kujipatia mahitaji yao ya kila siku na ya wenzao.

Ndiyo kusema kuna ukweli kwamba ‘mikono ni mzazi wa mtu,’ kwa sababu ya utunzaji anaoupata mtu huyo kutoka kwenye mikono yake.

Methali hiyo huwafundisha watu juu ya kuitumia vizuri mikono yao ili iweze kuwapatia maendeleo maishani mwao. Inapiga vita tabia ya uvivu au ile ya kuwa na utegemezi katika kufanya kazi zile ambayo mtu huyo anaziweza kuzitekeleza mwenyewe.

Zaidi ya hayo, methali hiyo huwafundisha watu juu ya kuwapatia wanafamilia, au wanajumuiya na wananchi wote kwa ujumla, malezi mema yawezayo kuwaletea maendeleo maishani mwao.

 ENGLISH: HANDS ARE A PERSON’S MOTHER

The overhead proverb relates to a human being’s hands. While still in infancy, a baby is taken care of in his/her mother’s hands, or in the hands of the babysitters. But when he/she grows up, the adult is able to feed himself/herself using his/her own hands. As such, ‘hands are a person’s mother.’baby1

Such proverb is likened to a parent who knows how to take care of his/her child. A compassionate parent teaches his/her children how to be self-reliant or how to use their hands to bring them development.

Such a parent uses his/her hands to teach the children to work hard and achieve their own goals, and to care for fellow human beings. That is why the children would grow up with the good habit of using their hands to provide themselves and their peers with daily needs.help

In essence, it is a fact that ‘hands are a person’s mother’ because of the care that he/she gets from the mother’s hands.

The proverb teaches people on how to use their hands in a resourceful way in order to improve their lives. It discourages the tendency of being lazy or dependent upon others in undertaking tasks that can be accomplished by them alone.share

Furthermore, the proverb instills in people the importance of proper training of family members, the community and society in general for the sake of bringing about progress in their lives.
