2. Sorry, I didn’t hear you 

Think, and ask before you decide. Two sides to every story. 


This is the story of a Watchman. His life experience will restore your faith back and also teach you never to be judgmental toward anyone without knowing the full picture.

The Story:

There was a Watchman who always used to open and close the gates and then greet the house owner but the owner never responds to him. The Watchman thinks his owner is a little arrogant and doesn’t want to talk to some poor fellow.

Every day, after work, he searches the garbage for food. Whatsoever is left by the owners. 

One day, when he was searching for the food he finds a bag full of eatables in a well-packed poly bag. He didn’t understand who put it and why someone does it.

This goes on for several years until his owner has died. After his owner’s death, he searches daily but never got that bag again.

Without that food, it was again difficult for him to feed himself with the little salary he gets. So, he went to the owner’s wife to ask for a salary raise.

When he asked for the salary raise, the owner’s wife questions him why didn’t he come early and had been working with such a little salary.

He tells her about the polybag he used to get every day and for this reason, his salary was enough for his family. But now it stopped.

The owner’s wife got tears in her eyes and said ” you are the fifth one, Telling this story. My husband used to help everyone, he can. Don’t worry, you will have the raise.”

Again from the next day, he starts to get the polybag with eatables at the same place. This time he understands that it must be his owner’s son.

Every day, he greets the owner’s son and even he never replied to the Watchman. One day, nearly feed up with this, he shouted aloud to the owner’s son. ” Sir, thank you”.

The owner’s son turns and said ” Sorry I didn’t hear you. I have a hearing problem just like my father.”

3. Kill him, kill him

Once a man was walking by his rice fields. Suddenly he saw a big creature moving in the water. He watched carefully, and shouted ” Anaconda”.

It was a fat, large snake about thrice a man long, moving slowly in the rice fields. While the man waited for others to come, he saw the fat belly.
When all the farmers nearby gathered around, they started to encircle it. In the time, farmers encircled the snake, someone in the crowd shouted: ” it has eaten a man, see the size of its stomach “.
Everyone yelled, ” Kill him, kill him”.
The snake was dead in the moments. The animal was torn apart, what they saw shocked them, and their head dropped with guilt. 
They were eggs in the belly, she was a mother.
Moral of the story:

Never take the decision on the spur. First know, then decide. Your little misjudgment might take someone’s life and fill you with guilt for the rest of your life. Never always considered yourself to be right. There always two sides to every story.
