Once there lived a poor woman across a street. She lived in a cold house, for she had nothing above and the wind whistled through that, even though the largest cracks were stuffed with straw and rags. Her thin hands were always numb with cold. But she never cared because her love and life was her son, Amar. The poor woman used to work in rich houses by doing household chores and spent the earned money on Amar's education.
Amar was a smart boy. He gave all his time to studies and teachers were very proud of him. Amar had many friends. They were from a high-class family background but never let Amar lonely. Amar was overjoyed with their company. Whenever school dispersed, Amar and his friends went into a sweet shop and took sweets. Amar did not have any money so his friends gave him sweets.
One day Amar told his mother that he wanted some money to buy sweets as he did not like taking sweets from his friends every day. But his mother said that they did not even have money to eat food, sweets was a lot away. Amar sadly entered his room. Suddenly, he got an idea.
When the next day, they went to the sweet shop, Amar silently took two ladoos and kept it into the pocket. The shopkeeper not knowing what Amar had done, continued to be in a cheerful mood.
When he went home, he told his mother that he had stolen two of them. The mother, instead of scolding him, started praising him for what he had done because they did not have any money and Amar got two sweets.
Slowly slowly, he started to steal things from his friends and soon came to be known as "THUG AMAR". All the people in the city were scared of him because he used to take away all the things they had.
Soon, Amar was caught by the police. He was trialed in the court and was given death punishment. Just before hanging him to death, the judge asked him his last wish. His wish was to see his mother. As soon as his mother came in front of him, he cut her nose with a knife. When the judge asked him why did he do so, he answered, "If my mother had not scolded me when the first time I had stole two ladoos, neither I would have been punished, nor her nose would have been cut off."
