Once upon a time, in an Indian village, there lived a kind and helpful girl named Krishna. She lived with her family. Her father was a priest who told Lord Shree Krishna’s stories and her mother was a business woman.
One fine day, Krishna was hearing Shree Krishna’s stories. After some time, a lady beggar came and asked for alms. Krishna’s father told “Come tomorrow. I’ll give you as much food as you want”. Next day, the lady came and reminded the priest of his promise. The priest told “When? You liar!”. The lady walked away sadly. Krishna took her address when she was leaving.
When Krishna went home, she asked her mother “How will I become like you?”. Her mother replied, “Just study hard!” Suddenly, a girl came in and asked for rupees 100 for her school fees. Krishna’s mother told “I don’t have money to give you”. Krishna knew her mother was also lying. So, she smartly took the girl’s address when she was leaving.
After some time, Krishna went to her school. The teacher told everyone “Kids, tomorrow, a very learned sage will come to our Gurukul. When he asks about the chapter you are learning, tell him 48, even though the chapter you are really learning is 38.” “Okay, Guruji.” All of them chirruped.
The next day, Krishna refused to go to her school. When her teacher came to ask why, she told “All of you lie to those poor people”. “We never lied”, all three of them said. “Yes you did. Father lied to the poor lady. Mother lied to the poor girl and teacher lied to the learned sage”, Krishna said dejectedly looking at their addresses. All of them went to those poor people, apologized and gave them food and money.
Moral: You should always be truthful and help the poor and needy.
