KISWAHILI: KIENDACHO TUMBONI HAKIKAI

Chanzo cha Methali hiyo huangalia chakula, ambacho mtu hukila na baada ya hapo chakula hicho hukaa tumboni kwa muda mfupi tu, na kutupwa nje. Kwa maana hiyo, mtu akijivunia kupita kiasi chakula alichokula, au akikataa kula chakula fulani, ambacho kwa macho hakipendezi, huambiwa na wenzake kwamba, ‘kiendacho tumboni hakikai.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu wawadharauo wenzao ambao ni maskini na hukataa kula chakula chao wakikiona kama chakula kibaya. Wao hujivunia kula vyakula vyao ambavyo ni vya kitajiri.

Zaidi ya hayo, watu hao pia hujivunia vitu ambavyo ni vya muda mfupi tu na huviacha ambavyo ni vya kudumu. Watu hao husahau kwamba kiendacho tumboni hakikai.

Methali hiyo hufudisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia ya kuwadharau watu walio masikini. Huwakataza kujivunia vitu vipitavyo, kama vile vyakula vizuri au mafanikio fulani. Watu hao hutakiwa kujijengea tabia njema ya kushirikiana kwa upendo na watu wote, bila kuwabagua. Tabia hiyo, itawakumbusha watu hao juu ya umuhimu wa kuyazingatia yale yasiyopita, yakiwemo yale yamhusuyo Mungu aliyewaumba.

ENGLISH: WHAT GOES INTO THE STOMACH DOES NOT STAY

The above proverb focuses on the food that a person eats, and the fact that it stays in the stomach for just a short time, soon to be expelled. Thus, if a person is too proud of what he/she has eaten, or declines to partake of certain foods which he/she dislikes, the person is told by colleagues, ‘what goes into the stomach does not stay.’

The proverb is compared to people who despise their poor counterparts. For instance, they will turn down a poor person’s food offer because they consider it (the food) bad. They take pride in taking only the kind of food that is associated with opulence.

Moreover, such people adore things that are merely temporary or short-lived, and ignore those that are durable or long lasting. This asserts the gist of the proverb: ‘What goes into the stomach does not stay.’

The proverb is used to discourage people from despising the poor. It cautions against boasting of things that are temporal, such as good food or a certain level of success. People are encouraged to cultivate good habits of sharing with others lovingly and without discrimination. Such pleasant attitude will remind them about the virtue of only focusing on critical issues, including what entails the place of God who created them.
