A BOASTING Traveler

Posted on: October 9, 2012


  

Very long ago when there was no television and computers, people did not know much about other places, people or their way of living.

 

In those days, a young man loved to go from place to place to see the sights.  He loved nature and beauty. He traveled to different parts of the world. As he was one of the very few people from his village, which had been to so many places, he became very big headed.

 

Whenever he came back to his own village after his trips, he would constantly boast about his adventures. His neighbors and other villagers got bored of his long repeated tales. But he never stopped sharing his cherished experiences.

 

Every day he used to repeat the same story. He would excitedly say thumping his chest: “When I was in Rhodes, I made a most amazing high jump that the people there, had ever seen. I have witness to prove it, too. A beautiful and very rich girl there was so impressed that she wanted to marry me, but I refused.” He made up such stories to impress but it annoyed and bored the folk instead.

 

One evening when they all gathered after day’s hard work for chit chat, the traveler started to repeat the same story. Then one of the villagers who were already fed up of traveler’s boasts said:

 

“The events you performed in Rhodes may all be true but if you perform here in front of us, it will save our time and your energy too.”

 

The traveler failed to do so—as it was all made up story. He was not a good sportsman. He only wanted to get attention of others, so boasted.

 

 

 

MORAL OF THE STORY:

 

Self praise is no recommendation!
