"Nnanibaémaélianpö, Awachialiöñöaköröafele ( When two blind people share a dish, who gets more from the soup is a matter only the gods can decide)"
A better way to begin an understanding of this Annang saying is by explaining its etiology. The African dish popularly known as foo-foo among requires two separate dishes: one for the dough or foo-foo itself and the other for the soup. Since the Annang soup for the foo-foo requires lots of green vegetables, some individuals may exhaust such soup before the foo-foo. Good table etiquette requires that the soup be eaten well along with the foo-foo so that the former is not exhausted before the later. Community sharing of a meal allows individuals to keep an eye on each other and act as a check against those with a habit of finishing the soup before the foo-foo. With the blind, such a check is not possible because of the lack of sight. Thus the Annang saying that ascribes such responsibility to the gods is an acknowledgement that what is difficult for humans is not so with the divine. The saying was used to stress the divine attribute of omniscience in cases where proof and evidence was lacking. Sometimes, certain situations are beyond human control.
