KISWAHILI: MBWA NA MBWA HAWASHIRIKI CHAKULA KWA KUTUMIA CHOMBO KIMOJA

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia mbwa. Mbwa ana ubinafsi kwa sababu yeye hayuko tayari kula chakula kwenye chombo kimoja na mwenzake. Kila mmoja hulia kwenye chombo malumu kwa ajili yake tu.

Hawawezi kulia chombo kimoja kwa kuchangia. Hata awe mtoto wake atamkatalia kwa sababu ya tabia yake ya kupenda kuwa na ubinafsi maishani mwake. Mbwa wana ubinafsi wa hali ya juu katika maisha yao.

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye ni mchoyo katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo hataki kusaidiana na wenzake, kwa sababu ya tabia yake ya kupenda kukaa peke yake. Mtu huyo atawaliwa na ubinafsi katika maisha yake.

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia ya ubinafsi. Tabia hiyo ni ile ya kupenda kukaa peke yao katika maisha yao. Ni vizuri kuwa pamoja na wenzao kwa kujijengea tabia ya kusaidiana nao. Umoja huo husaidia watu katika kuishi kwa amani na wenzao katika jumuiya au kijiji chao.

Zaidi ya hayo, methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuachana na tabia za mbwa, yaani ubinafsi. Wao wanatakiwa kujijengea tabia ya kuwajali wenzao katika maisha yao kwa ajili ya kuwawezesha kuleta maendeleo katika jumuiya zao. Inawabidi wawajali wenzao kwa kukubali kusaidiana na kushirikiana nao kwa upendo.

 DOGS CANNOT SHARE FOOD IN ONE BOWL

The above proverb looks at the selfish nature of dogs. A dog cannot share food in one bowl with a fellow dog because of their selfishness. Each has a separate bowl to itself.

They cannot share one plate, even with their puppies, because of their high degree of selfishness.dog-

The overhead proverb is likened to the character of a selfish person. Such a person is not supportive to others, and has a tendency to live in isolation. He/she is controlled by selfishness in his/her life.

The proverb teaches people against selfish behavior in their lives, and against seclusion. Instead, people are advised to embrace unity, which helps them co-exist in peace with their colleagues in their community.
