KISWAHILI: HINDI NDIKO ZITOKAKO NGUO NA WAENDAO UCHI WAKO.

Chanzo cha methali hii chaangalia nguo ambazo hutoka Hindi. Nguo hizo hutengenezwa huko kwa wingi ili kuwawezesha watu wengi kuzipata kwa kuzinunua, ikiwezekana kila mmoja azipate, na zingine kufikia hatua ya kuuzwa nje ya nchi.

Watu walioko nje ya nchi hiyo hudhani kwamba, kila mmoja katika nchi itengenezayo nguo hizo huvaa nguo hizo. Lakini kumbe hata watu watembeao uchi kule wapo. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, Hindi ndiko zitokako nguo na waendao uchi wako.

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu waishio ndani ya nchi yenye utajiri mwingi, na wenye bidii ya kuutumia utajiri huo, wamekuwa matajiri. Lakini pamoja na nchi hiyo kuwa na utajiri mwingi hivyo, waishio bila kupata mahitaji ya lazima yakiwemo yale ya nguo, chakula na malazi, wapo.

Zaidi ya hayo, methali hiyo hulinganishwa na Kanisa kwa sababu ndani yake kuna baraka na neema nyingi. Lakini pamoja na uwepo wa baraka hizo ndani yake, watu waishio bila baraka hizo wapo.

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu  kuwa na bidii ya kuutumia utajiri uliomo ndani ya nchi yao vizuri, au kuwa na bidii ya kuzipata na kuzitumia baraka na neema zilizoko ndani ya Kanisa. Bidii hiyo itawawezesha kupata mafanikio mengi maishani mwao. “Lakini utafuteni kwanza Ufalme wa Mungu na haki yake na haya yote mtaongezewa” (Mathayo 6:33).

weaving clothes

ENGLISH: EVEN IN INDIA WHERE CLOTHES COME FROM, THERE ARE THOSE WHO WALK NAKED

The origin of this proverb is clothes from India. The garments are manufactured locally in large quantities to enable more people to buy them, preferably for everyone to acquire, and sometimes to the point of exporting.

People outside the country think that everyone in the country that produces such garments has clothes to wear. However, there are people who go without decent clothes. That is why people say that even in India is where clothes come from, there are those who walk naked.

The proverb is used comparatively to refer to people who live in a rich countries; those who are eager to use the riches have also become rich. However, despite the countries’ immense wealth, those who do not live on basic necessities, including clothing, food and shelter, also exist there.

Moreover, the proverb is used to refer to the Church, because it has enormous blessings and graces. However, despite the presence of such blessings in the Church, people who live without those blessings exist in the same Church.

This proverb teaches people to be diligent in making use of the wealth present within their reach, or to be diligent in applying the blessings and graces present within their Church. That effort will allow them to achieve immeasurable successes in their lives. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Matthew 6:33.
