The Farmer and his son

Updated on September 5, 2009


Once there lived a farmer in a village.  He was a good and honest farmer. He had four sons. All of them were lazy. They were foolish also. They never did any work. They always quarrelled with one another. The old farmer was sad. He wanted to make them work hard.

The old man fell ill. He called his sons to his side and said. My sons I am sick. I shall not live long. I have placed a box of gold in our field. I do not remember the exact place. You may dig the field and find the box. Live together. And enjoy the gold.

A few days passed. The old farmer died. His sons went to the field for the box of gold. They began to dig the field again and again. There was no box of gold anywhere in the field. The brothers were sad.

The whole field was dug. The brothers put seeds in the field. They had good rains that year.  There was a very good crop that year. They sold all the crop and got a lot of money. They were happy. They understood their father word only then. The box of gold was good crop. The good crop brought them gold. They lived together happily.

      In Madhanpur lived a very hardworking farmer named Gopal. He has three sons Ram, Laxman and Hanuman. All three were strong and healthy. But they were all lazy.

      Gopal was sad thinking about his sons and the future of his farmland.

      One day, Gopal got a flash of an idea. He called all his sons and said, "Ram! Laxman! and Hanuman! I have hidden a treasure in our farmland. You search and share the treasure among you."

      The three sons were overjoyed. They went to the fields and started searching Ram started from one end. Laxman searched from the other end. And Hanuman did so from the centre. They dug each and every inch of the field. But they could not find anything.

      Gopal said to his sons, “Dear boys! Now you have tooled and conditioned the field, why not we sow a crop!" Off went the sons to sow the crops.

      Days passed. Soon, the crops grew lushly green. The sons were delighted. The father said, "Sons, this is the real treasure I wanted you to share".

      MORAL : Fruits of hard work are always sweet.
