An old man was very tired. He was walking on the road. A tree was grown up on the road side. The man sat under it. He slept soon.
A disturbing noise woke him up. He opened his eyes and saw around. However, no one was there. The man was about to sleep again. However, that strange voice again hit his ears.
He jumped on his feet looked around but found no one. He said in a fearful voice, “Who’s there? Tell me.”
He jumped and a sound came, “It’s me below you.” The man looked down and he was astonished. The road was talking to him.
He jumped and the road said, “Hey, how are you?” The man afraid but said in a low voice, “Hi, I’m good. Thank you.”
The road asked, “You seem too sad.” The man said, “Yes, my friend. I’m very sad. There’s no one in my life. I’m alone.” Tears rolled down his eyes.
The road thought for a moment and said, “Don’t worry dear, I’m alone too. However, I meet new people every day. I stick to one place. However, people come to meet me. I give them direction to reach their destinations.”
“If you’ll give values to people’s life, they’ll connect more with you. I think, so. You should follow this rule.”
The old man understood everything, the road told him. He made a hut for him. He used to help every traveller who went near him. He felt very happy by serving people.
