There lived a man named “The man”. Since birth, he is greedy. He has a great desire for money. When he was a kid, he lost his parents but not his greediness. He entered into twenty and lost his teenage but not his greediness. He married a rich girl named “L. Devi”. He lost his virginity but not his greediness.
One day, the couple went to a village named “The village”. There Devi promised to donate her property to the village. The man denied her decision and shouted in front of the people that she was a stupid. There he lost his respect but not his greediness.
On their way home, it became very dark. They found a hotel named “The hotel” near a forest named “The forest”. They booked a room in the name “Devi.L”. The man had started thinking of the property. He lost to his conscience but not his greediness. He got frustrated and lost his sleep but not his greediness. He secretly murdered his wife with a knife and buried her body in the forest. He lost his wife but not greediness.
Few days later, he found that a password that can give access to his wife's property is known by his wife only. He tried hard for that but failed. He tried again and again but failed. He lost his hope but not his greediness. Later he found a witch named “The witch” who can talk to the ghosts.
The man, along with the witch drove to the forest. As it became dark, they have decided to stay in a hotel. They found the same hotel. The witch denied to enter into the hotel with no reason. He got the same room in which he stayed previously. He booked the room in his name “The man”. Several thoughts accompanied him into his room. He made himself into a deep sleep. He can hear nothing except the clock sound....tik...tok...tick...tock....tik...tok
He heard a deep voice. It was the voice of a woman crying. It was loud enough to shatter his dreams and dragged his attention towards it. The voice was approaching him rapidly. Suddenly, the voice turned into a laughter. The man realized, "Yeah! there she is......my wife". He jumped into his feet and rushed down to catch her. On his way, he saw the receipt of his room. The name in the receipt changed to “Devi.L”.
The sound of the laughter was moving away from him. The sound disappeared into the forest that was drenched with darkness and silence.
"The darkness has many colours to see and the silence has many sounds to hear".
The man stepped out of the hotel and turned back. The dreadful look of the hotel generated some signs of fear in him. He saw the name of the hotel in the lighting of a lightening. Shockingly it got the name “Devi.L Hotel”. He lost his courage but not his greediness. He saw the witch sleeping under a tree named “The Friendship”. The man felt that she was the only friend left for him. After talking to the witch, he lost his fear but not his greediness.
Both of them followed the sound of the laughter in the path of darkness with a signboard of fear.....It was very cold out there. The chillness was biting the skin of them.
On their way, the man felt very heavy. He left his coat of self-respect but not his greediness and started moving forward. Whenever he felt heavy, he left something and only followed his greediness . He left his humanity but not his greediness. He left his loyalty but not his greediness. He left his honesty but not his greediness. He left his mercy but not his greediness. He left his integrity but not his greediness........
They just followed the laughter of pride and crossed the boundaries of greediness.
At last, the laughter taken them into a palace...Yes! a gold palace. The palace was shining in damn gold. The glitter of the gold pumped the desire inside the man.
They entered into the palace. The witch has thrown a spell and the fog around them turned into a burning spirit. It was Devi.L. The man shouted, "Honey! you can't use your property. You are already dead. Give it to me. I am the right person to use it. Is this palace yours. I want this too". Devi.L said only two words "Take it" and disappeared. Suddenly, the palace caught fire. The fire was ferocious and surrounded them rapidly. Both of them were finding ways to escape. Meanwhile, The man saw a rat falling into the fire. He was amazed as it turned into a gold statue. Immediately, man collected few bodies of some small insects and throwed the bodies into the fire. Yeah!!! his amazement continued as the bodies turned into gold. Suddenly, the fire started disappearing and the man got no bodies left. He tried the same with wood neither it turned into gold nor increased the fire. He started worrying as he got less gold. He lost the satisfaction but not his greediness.
He started shivering and looked here and there . Suddenly, the man smiled and pushed the witch(his only friend) into the roaring fire and ran out of the forest by dragging the golden statue of his only friend. He lost his only friend but not his greediness.
He took the car keys out of his pocket while running towards the car, the keys fell down accidentally. The car started suddenly. The lights from the car got intensified and fell into his eyes. He lost his eyes and keys but not his greediness. He bent down in search of his keys and started moving his hands over the ground.
He heard some footsteps approaching him. He searched for his weapon named “WISDOM” and realised that he forgot the weapon in his hotel room. Now the “real fear” started in him. Fear of losing....Fear of losing the gold....Still he continued searching the keys. He felt something in his hand. It was a knife. Something approached him rapidly....He suddenly lifted the knife and stabbed the one in front of him with three massive blows.
He heard a deep voice. It was the voice of a woman crying. It was loud enough to shatter his dreams and dragged his attention towards that. The voice is approaching him rapidly. Suddenly, the voice turned into a laughter. The man realized, "Yeah! there she is......my wife". The man felt some pain in his body. He noticed some blood over his bed. He found a knife stabbed into his stomach. The man yelled out of pain, "Oh God!!! I have stabbed myself while dreaming. This was the knife with which I killed my wife. I am bleeding someone please help me.......". The man slowly lost his ears, voice and vision. He lost all his senses but not his greediness. He jumped into his feet and fell down.
The sound of the laughter is moving away from him. The sound disappeared into the forest that is drenched with darkness and silence.
"The darkness has many colours to see and the silence has many words to listen".
At last, the man lost his life but not his greediness.............................
