Once Upon A Time...

... there was an old man who wanted to visit his daughter in another village. To reach there, he has to walk through a thick, dangerous jungle with many robbers, thieves and wild animals.

Since the journey will take him about 2 days, he prepared all the necessary and before he left, he bade everyone in his village goodbye.

The first day went well. He managed to reach the middle of the jungle safely.
On the second day however, out of a sudden and from out of nowhere, an arrow was shot and pierced the old man’s shoulder.

The old man fell and as he was writhing in pain, he cried, “Help! Help! I’m injured! Help! Help!” but no one came to his rescue.

After many hours of crying, a young man who happened to cross the jungle heard the old man. He rushed over and saw the old man on the ground, holding the arrow on his bleeding shoulder.

“What happen? What happen?”, asked the young man.

“An arrow came out of nowhere hit me on my shoulder! I didn’t see who and where was it from! Do you know?”, said the old man.

“No, I don’t. I just happened to pass by and heard your voice. Hold on. I will pull the arrow out!” said the young man.

Before the young man can reach the arrow, the old man grabbed the young man’s arm and said, “No! No! First you have to tell me who shot this arrow!”

The young man said, “I don’t know! I didn’t see anyone! Now let me pull this arrow out!”

“No! No! No! You have to tell me who shot me! I want to know why I was shot! Why is this happening to me? What did I do wrong? I’m innocent! What did I do to deserve this?”, cried the old man.

The young man again tried to pull the arrow out but the old man still keep insisting on wanting to know whom and why shot the arrow.

Many hours after that, the old man died, with the arrow still pieced on his shoulder.


Now boys and girls, can you tell me what’s the hidden lesson in this story? ☻
