|A Short Story on a Magical Pot moral story|
Oh! I did not bring 100 spades. I just bought 1 spade. How come 1 spade becomes 100 spades? I don’t understand. Then he thought, this must be something to do with the pot. So he took away those 100 spades and took up a stone from nearby and put that stone in the pot and then when he looked inside the pot instead of that single stone there were 100 stones in the pot. That is when he realized that the pot was magical. So he brought the pot back home and kept it in the seal from that day on he used the pot to satisfy his needs. So whenever he wanted a cloth he would put a piece of cloth. And he will get enough of cloth for him to make his clothes. Whenever he was hungry he would put a fruit in that pot and he would get 100 fruits back from the pot.
That way gradually he started becoming rich. But the farmer was very honest. He never used the magic of the pot for satisfying his greed. He was not a greedy farmer!
However, his neighbor noticed that this farmer is getting richer and richer every day. So he tried to find out the secret of his richness. So one day his neighbor stood outside his window peeping into the house of the farmer to find out what this farmer is doing. That time, farmer kept a little spoon of milk inside the pot and he took out a liter of milk from the pot.
