GREED A CURSE
Once upon a time there lived a cloth merchant in a village with his wife and twochildren. They were indeed quite well-off. They had a beautiful hen which laid anegg everyday. It was not an ordinary egg, rather, a golden egg. But the man was not  satisfied with what he used to get daily. He was a get rich-trice kind of a person.The man wanted to get all the golden eggs from his hen at one single go. So, oneday he thought hard and at last clicked upon a plan. He decided to kill the hen and  get all the eggs together.So, the next day when the hen laid a golden egg, the man caught hold of it, took a sharp knife, chopped off its neck and cut its body open.There was nothing but blood all around & no trace of any egg at all. He was highly  grieved because now he would not get even one single egg.His life was going on smoothly with one egg a day but now, he himself made his lifemiserable. The outcome of his greed was that he started becoming poorer & poorer day by day and ultimately became a pauper. How jinxed and how much foolish hewas.So, the moral of the story is- one who desires more, looses all. One should remain satisfied with what one gets.
 
UNITED WE STAND : DIVIDED WE FALL
Once upon a time three sons were engaged in merchantile business under the supervision of their father. They were very rich. Each son was proficient in his owndepartment. If one was good in sales, the other one was competent in purchases and similarly the third one in finance.Unluckily, one day the father got bed ridden and the sons decided to divide thebusiness under the fallacy that each of them were experts in their own way and canhandle their individual business solely.The father was glum and grumpy with their decision but was helpless and unfortunately the separation took place. As a result three of them became each others competitors. With the passage of time,they started having huge losses in their respective businesses. They tried all  possible ways to succeed but the situation became worse.Then they came to their father for a piece of advice. The father said when you all were doing the business jointly, the business ran successfully. But it was not any one of you responsible for the success of the business rather traits of all three of you put together made the business successful.The sons realized their mistake & got reunited.Moral: disunity always ruins.

She peeped into the well and saw the fox there.The goat asked what are you doing there, Mr. Fox? The sly fox replied, I came here to drink water. It is the best I have ever tasted.Come and see for yourself.Without thinking even for a while, the goat jumped into the well, quenched her thirst and looked for a way to get out. But just like the fox, she also found herself helpless to come out.Then the fox said, I have an idea. You stand on your hind legs. I'll climb on your head and get out. Then I shall help you come out too.The goat was innocent enough to understand the shrewdness of the fox and did asthe fox said and help him get out of the well.While walking away, the fox said, “Had you been intelligent enough, you would never have got in without seeing how to get out.”
