The Magic Pot
The name of the story is The Magic Pot
Once upon a time there lived a farmer in a village.
He use to go to his farm daily and do his farming activities.
One day he was digging the farm to prepare it for sowing the seeds for coming monsoon.
All of a sudden he found a big Pot in the farm.
He took the pot out and he wondered what that pot will be useful for.
So he just kept that pot aside and started his usual activities again.
During the lunch time he just kept his spade in that pot while he was eating.
When the farmer finished his lunch. He saw to his surprise that his spade was multiplied to 100 spades in that pot.
He was really really surprised. He thought to himself
Oh! I did not bring 100 spades. I just brought only 1 spade. How come 1 spade become 100 spades.
I don’t understand. Than 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 that pot and than 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 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 that farmer was very honest. He never used 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 everyday.
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 this 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 litre of milk from the pot.
Hmmm! now I understand said the neighbor.
He said that the magical pot is giving him all the richness.
So, this wicked neighbor envious neighbor decided to steal this pot from this farmer.
That night itself he stole that pot from the farmers house.
and took it back home to his own house.
He was very eager to find out the magic of the pot.
But before that he wanted to find out if there is anything inside the pot.
So he put his hand in the pot but obviously there was nothing in the pot.
But to his surprise when he took out his hand he realized that now he has 100 hands to his body.
And now he was really scared because he was not knowing how to bring those 100 things back to 1 again
So next day has he came out of his house the people were really scared and they thought that he is some kind of demon with 100 hands on one side and one hand on other.
So the other villager started stoning him and they drove him away.
When this farmer saw all this happening that the neighbor must have stolen the pot from him and must have put in his hands into it.
So the moral of the story is,
Do not be envious of anyone and never ever steal things from anyone
