A simple story with great moral, told by a kid, about the donkey and the horse.
Once upon a time there was a man who had a donkey and a horse. Both the donkey and the horse were the slaves of this man. They helped this man to transport a lot of goods from one place to another.
The horse was much stronger than the donkey, but both of them always carry the same weight of goods as the owner always distributed evenly to both of them.
To the horse, the weight of the goods was nothing to him as he was very strong, but for the donkey he was quite weak, but the donkey did not complain, till one day he discovered that he had gone beyond his limit and could not carry such heavy stuff anymore. He pleaded the horse to help him carry just some of the goods, but the horse refused. The horse said “hey, be fair and square okay, we both carrying the same weight of goods, why should I carry more than you, don’t take me for granted!” The donkey was disappointed so he continued to struggle with the load. He should request his owner instead but, well, animals cannot talk to human beings. At last the donkey collapsed and died of fatigue.
After the donkey died, the owner, instead of getting another donkey to replace, transferred all the goods to the horse’s back , in another words, the horse had to carry all the goods, and also to make matter worst, he had an additional item to carry, that is, the donkey’s skin which the heartless owner had removed from the dead donkey, for selling.
Moral of the story :
Not everything can be fair and square. If we can help others, we just help, within our limit. If you don’t help others, you may be the one who suffer eventually.
