KISWAHILI: USINGIZI WA DOROME NI WA KUAMSHIA RUNGU.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia kondoo dume aitwaye dorome. Kondoo huyo huonesha mwenendo wa kondoo walio watembeaji sana. Wakizoea kwenda sehemu fulani, huwa hawatoki pale mpaka mtu awaendee na kuwapiga rungu ndipo waondoke pale. Kondoo hao huwa kama wamelala usingizi wa kuamushiwa rungu. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘usingizi wa dorome ni wa kuamshia rungu.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu wenye upole wa kushindwa hata kufanya kazi zao. Watu hao hujikuta muda wa kufanya kazi, zikiwemo zile za kilimo na zile za maofisini, umeisha. Mwenendo huo huwaletea matatizo yakiwemo yale ya kukosa chakula kwenye familia zao, na wengine hata kufukuzwa kazi na waajiri wao. Matatizo hayo, hufanana na kondoo dume kupigwa rungu ndipo aondoke anapotakiwa kutoka. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘usingizi wa kondoo dorome ni wa kuamshia rungu.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu  kuwa na bidii ya kufanya kazi zao ili waweze kujipatia mafanikio mengi maishani mwao. Bidii hiyo itawasaidia katika kuendelea vizuri na kazi zao ambazo ni muhimu katika kuwaletea maendeleo kwenye familia zao.

(Ufunuo. 5:6; Mithali 6:9-10; Yohane. 1:29).

 

 

ram sleeping

ENGLISH: A FAST SLEEPING RAM IS WAKEN UP BY A STRIKE OF A CLUB.

The origin of this proverb is a ram. The ram reflects the behavior of sheep that wander regularly. When they are used to going somewhere, they do not get out of that place until someone goes there and strikes them with a club as if they were fast asleep. That is why people say, ”A fast sleeping ram is waken up by a strike of a club.’

The proverb is used comparatively to refer to people who are extremely humane to the extent of being unable to even perform their tasks. Those people take much lingerly than is requied in creating time to work, including in agricultural fields and in office jobs. This behavior causes them problems, including food shortage in their families, and some even get dismissed by their employers. These problems are like a strike of a club to a fast sleeping ram, which makes it leave the place to which it had confined itself. That is why people say, ‘A fast sleeping ram is waken up by a strike of a club.’

This proverb teaches people to be diligent in doing their work so that they can make their lives more successful. Such effort will help them get on with their work that is important in bringing development to their families.

(Rev. 5: 6; Proverbs 6: 9-10; John. 1:29).
