a moral short story for kids
Long long ago a little boy asked his father ‘Daddy what is the difference between Gods & Demons?” The father replied “son, i will organize a big banquet at our residence where i will invite both Gods & Demons”. At the end of the banquet, you will get your answer. As he said, a lavish banquet was organized and the demons because of their impatient nature wanted VIP treatment and wanted to have their food served first. The host agreed to their request on one condition that the demons will have to tie a wooden plank to both of their hands at the time eating food.The demons asked that the same condition should be applied to the Gods. The Demons sat on the floor with tied hands and delicious food was served. It was the best smelling soup in the bowl with spoons.Since their hands were tied, they were not able to drink the soup properly so they started fighting among themselves.Some of the demons wanted to beat up the host.
At the end, Demons left the banquet without having food.Now it was the turn of Gods and delicious soup was served. Since their hands were tied as well so it was not possible to take the spoon straight to their mouths so they turned towards each other and started feeding each other, using their wisdom. They enjoy the most delicious five courses of meal. They presented gifts to the host and went peacefully. The father told to the son” the only difference between Gods and demons was of attitude- The attitude of giving and taking”. The demons thought only of their self interest whereas Gods thought selflessly.
Moral of the story- When you open your heart and give selflessly, you will receive more than you give. Everyone must have the attitude of giving. The foundation of human race is based upon the principle of giving and helping others, serve the nation and serve the society.
