“A grocer and a fruit seller” ~ Completing Story For Class 9-10 (IX-X) & 11-12 (XI-XII)

Opera_One day a grocer borrowed a balance and some weights from a fruit seller. After a few days, the fruit seller asked the grocer to return his balance with weights to him. The grocer desired not to return his balance and weights. Rather he said to the fruit seller that the mice had eaten into his things. The lame excuse of the dishonest grocer made the fruit seller very angry. But he controlled his temper and told him that it was his bad luck. But the fruit seller was thinking of a plan to teach him a good lesson.

Once the fruit seller requested the grocer to allow his son to go with him to the town for some shopping. The grocer allowed his son to go with him. The next day the fruit seller returned alone from the town. The grocer asked him about his son. The fruit seller replied that a crow had carried his son away. At this the grocer grew very angry and calling him a liar asked him how a crow can carry his son away. The fruit seller instantly replied that it carried his son away in the same way as mice could eat into his balance and weights. The grocer understood the whole thing and requested the fruit seller to pardon him for telling lie.  He returned the balance and weights to the fruit seller. After that the fruit seller also sent the boy to his father.

😉 Thanks…
