DON'T SPEAK ILL OF OTHERS BEHIND THEIR BACK (Moral Story)




A long time ago there was a' Gurukul' (Hostel) in which children used to live and study. Among those children there were two kids who were brilliant in studies . They were favorite students of Guruji(The Teacher ).
 Both of them were  very good friends too . Many years passed by and now teacher decided to take the test of the children . All the children did well in the test specially the two favorites of him . The teacher found both of them equally good and they got equal marks too , he was very happy but he wanted to know that whether both students had put there knowledge into practice.

One day he called one of them and said to him "Dear, you and your friend did equally well in exam I am glad that the two of you are such good students , now I want to know that what do you think of your friend ? " The boy said " Guruji ", I have learned all the subjects by heart but he learnt them by rote, I think he has no brains he is like an" OX". Oh, never mind dear , experience will teach him every thing " said the teacher, "you can go now son".
After meeting the first student he called the second one and asked the same question to him . The boy said " Guruji I have gained my knowledge by understanding it, but my friend has achieved it by rote. He is just like a"CAMEL"."Oh , never mind. Experience will teach him every thing ," teacher repeated the same words and asked him to leave.
Next day their teacher  invited both  the boys for lunch . The two boys became so happy because it was a big honor for them .The lunch was served and what a shock ! while there was the normal meal was served for Guruji, but for the boys there were only leaves and grass !
The teacher said" you called each other  an ox and  camel so here is your food , grass for the ox and leaves for the camel".' Please have it'.
