Long long ago there lived a very rich man. He was so rich that he could easily afford to feed all the people of his town. The man was very proud of his wealth and thus boasted his luxurious life to his friends and relatives.
The rich man’s son studied in a far off land. Once, when his son came home on vacation, his father wanted to make his realize that how rich his father is. However his son was not fond of classy living.
The rich man planned a visit with his to the town just to prove that how well-to-do they are and how deprived other people were.
Having visited the town in a deluxe chariot, both father and son came home after two days.
The father was happy to see his son quiet during the visit seeing the sufferings of poverty and ailment. Father proudly asked his son;” Dear son, did you enjoy the trip?”
The son replied; “yes father for showing me that how rich those people are and how poor are we.”
The rich father was stunned to hear his son’s words. He was speechless.
The son started again saying, “Father true wealth is not money and property we have. It is more about friendship, relationship and compassion we share with them.”
Moral: Life and love is true wealth and more important than lifeless wealth
