Miser And His Gold:
Once upon a time, there was a miser. He hated spending gold. So he never used any gold he had. He had dug up a hole and used to bury the gold near the tree in is garden.
Every day he goes near the tree to dig it up and look at the gold happily. He always thought to himself, “I am so rich. I own this much gold.” This made him very happy.
One day, a passerby saw him digging up and happened to see the gold hidden by him. The passerby – “Gold under the tree! I should wait till it gets dark.” The robber waited till the night time to dig up the gold. He took all the gold buried under the tree.
The next day the miser came back to look at his gold. The miser- “Where is my gold? Where is my gold?” The miser digs a big hole where he used to hide his gold. But he couldn’t find any gold in the hole. The miser started crying, “Who stole my gold?” Listening to the miser crying, all his neighbors came running to his house.
The neighbor asked him, “What happened? Why are you upset?” The miser showed them the hole and told everything about the gold he used to hide under the tree. Then another neighbor asked him, “Did you ever spend any of your gold?” The miser replied to him, “No, I would only dig it up. Looking at it made me happy.”
Then neighbor- “You never used anything at all! The gold was of no use to you because you had it in the ground. Just look into the hole and think that the gold is still inside it. Then you will be as happy as you were before.”
Neighbors started to laugh and left him with the empty hole.
