Why do the Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer?

An Inspirational Story

Once, Arjun asked Lord Krishna, “Oh Lord! In this world, the Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer day by day. The comforts and luxuries of the rich keep increasing whereas the poor have to endure all kinds of hardships.”

Lord, you are the caretaker of the world, not a leaf moves without your will. Then what kind of illusion is this? Why is there injustice with the poor and your compassionate gaze upon the rich? How Does the Law of Nature Impact Us?

Lord Krishna smiled and said, “My friend, you will receive the answer to this in due time.”

A few days later, Lord Krishna and Arjun went for a walk in the forest.

As they were wandering, when it was noon, Arjun became restless with hunger and said, “Lord, we need to arrange for some food.”

Sri Krishna replied, “I have brought some raw grains with me. You arrange for some bricks so that we can make a stove and cook our meal.”

Arjun went a little far into the forest and saw a village, from where he brought some bricks. God made a stove out of those bricks and started cooking food.

Meanwhile, God sensed a hidden curiosity in Arjun’s mind but remained calm.

After the meal, God asked Arjun, “It seems that you have seen something strange in the forest which has sparked some curiosity in your mind.”

Arjun said, “Lord, I have truly seen something strange. When I was wandering in search of bricks, I saw that near the distant village, there were two wells right next to each other. One well looked very beautiful with brand new bricks, while the other well was completely broken.”

Surprisingly, the water in the beautiful and newly constructed well was hot and salty, while the water in the old and broken well was cool and sweet. How can the nature of water present in two wells located in the same place be opposite?

The Lord said, “The well whose water was cool and sweet quenches the thirst of people, while the other well serves no purpose for society. Due to excessive use, the well with cool water has been broken. Then Shri Krishna asked Arjun, “But tell me, from which well did you take the bricks to build the stove?”

Arjun replied in surprise, “From the same well that was broken because it lacked beauty. It didn’t seem right to me to spoil the beauty of the intact wells.

Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer

Shri Krishna smiled and said, “You have broken the broken one even more, and this is the same question you asked me a few days ago. The poor person serves society more. He may have a cool and clear mindset, but he is far from beauty.”

“No one sees the serenity of a poor man’s soul, nor do they consider their contribution to the construction of society. Just like that old well that is broken and shattered itself, but quenches the thirst of many with its cool and sweet water. This is the reason why in this world, the Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer. This is the cycle of the world, my friend, there is no illusion in it.”
