ill-treated

A Quote by V. T. Neelkantan on mango grove, fossil, story, attitude, mango, benefactor, ill-treated, world, and fruit

The world has continued to demonstrate the ridiculous attitude of men. There is the story of a man condemned as an "old fossil", and called crazy because he thought of planting a mango grove. No one helped him plant, in fact, all deserted him, scoffing and mocking him. Years rolled by, the mango trees grew and brought forth delicious fruit and all the sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters and great-greats ran to the grove and placed up a sign board saying, "This Mango grove belongs to us!"

That's the world. The world has never once thought how it has ill-treated its benefactor.
