1st May, Labor Day
I read a story written by Mubashar Ali Zaidi a while ago. He is an Urdu writer and journalist, He writes stories based on 100 words which is called “100 lafzon ki kahani (a 100 words story)”. The story that I read was “Mukhtalif (different)”. It is based on Labor Day.
So, on that day I would like to translate that story.
“There are two types of people in the world who are different from each other”.
Master Abdul Shakoor told me.
“Black and White”, I replied immediately.
“Do not talk about color ever, you dumb”.
I was ashamed.
Again I said, “Man and Woman”.
“Always think them as equals, Mr.”
“Muslim and Non-Muslim?”
“Difference based on religion destroys a society, my son”
“Punjabi and Non-Punjabi?”
“From where did you learn that racism, my dear?”
I was astonished.
Then Master taught me,
“There are two types of people in the world… Laborer and Employer”
