A Poor Woodcutter Story
Once upon a time, a poor woodcutter lived in a small village. Every day he used to go to the nearby forest to cut the trees. He used to collect the Woods and sold them in a local market. With his little earnings, he was very happy.
One day he was cutting a tree beside a river. Suddenly his axe slipped from his hand and it fell into the river. There was deep water in the river so he could not take his axe out. He had only one axe. He was very sad as he would not be able to cut wood anymore to earn his livelihood. Losing his one and only axe, he started crying piteously. Hearing his cry the water fairy took pity on him. She appeared before the woodcutter and asked the woodcutter why he was crying. The woodcutter told him everything.
Then water fairy dived into the water and came out with a golden axe. She showed the golden axe to the woodcutter and asked, “Is this the axe that you lost?” The woodcutter examined the axe and replied ‘No’. The water Goddess again dived into the water and came out with a silver axe. She showed the silver axe to the woodcutter and asked, “Is this the axe that you lost?” The woodcutter examined the axe and again said, ‘No’. The water fairy dived into the water for the third time and came out with an iron axe. She showed the iron axe and asked, “Is this the axe that you lost?” The woodcutter saw the iron axe and jumped up in joy, saying: “It’s mine, its mine!” The water fairy was very pleased with the honesty of The woodcutter. She gave him not only his own axe but also the other two as a reward for this truthfulness.
Moral: Honesty is the best policy.
