Humanity is a quality of an individual that is being gifted by nature to one and by which one is distinguished from other beings. Being human does not mean that an individual possesses humanity. The quality of humanity take note of what he/she do for people who give nothing back in return to the favour they had offered. Extra ordinary humanity in a human being has been portrayed beautifully by Mother Teresa as she had created glorious example of humanity across the world and particularly in India. ''The world is full of nice people if you don't see one, be one. ''
Humanity means helping others at time when they need that help the most, humanity means forgetting your selfish interest at times when others need your help. It means extending unconditional love to each and every living being on earth.
A perfect example of humanity can be demonstrated by the story of a king. A king with a kind heart once saw a pigeon and an eagle fighting. He possessed the ebility of communicating with the birds and animals. The pigeon asked the king to save him from the eagle. The king told the eagle that he is ready to pay price in return for saving the pigeon. The eagle asks the king to chopping off his own flesh equal to the flesh of pigeon. After donating a little bit of his flesh he still finds the pigeon is heavier. Finally he surrenders the whole of himself to the eagle to eat. That is the moment when both the eagle and the pigeon turns into angels who appeared on earth to test the extend of king's humanity. The king is now rewarded with most precious rewards and heaven after life for his deed of humanity.
Serving the poor and the disabled is one of the greatest humanitarian help an individual can provide in his/her lifetime without any caste, creed, colour and religions. It is essential to understand the fact that we are extremely lucky to have everything we desire at any point of time we need. Serving the needy means you yourself think that you have more than enough resources for disposal.
People who always think that they don't have sufficient facilities available despite having everything can never provide humanitarian services because if one has the mind set of not being self sufficient how can he/she help someone else. One is always remembered for his/her good deeds and it is essential to understand that there is no better deed than overwinding services for humanitarian causes. If eating and having fun is only what we were born to do then we should keep one thing in mind that even animals can do such activities, if God has made us humans there has to be some reason behind it.
Humanitarian activities should never be perfomed in order to achieve fame or to gain a status symbol. One can easily achieve fame by the work you do. Lifting the heavy bag of an old woman is humanity, helping a disabled to cross the road is humanity, helping your mom doing work is humanity, in fact helping anyone who is in need is humanity. As one understand the importance of humanity in day to day life, the purpose for which we are on earth is automatically fulfilled.
Every religion tells us about humanity, peace and love that is why no religion is higher than humanity or against humanity. One should like to help everyone whitout caste, creed and colour. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate or despise one another. In this world there is a room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide everything for everyone.
