Greed – The Biggest Vice
Once upon a time a man lived in a large farm. He used to rear animals for his living. He had a caring wife and a sweet lovely daughter.
One day, during their customary evening walk, the daughter noticed that a hen had come to their farm. It was hiding behind a bush. Daughter drew attention of her parents towards it. Mother brought it into their house. They fed it with grains and water. Soon the hen had gained strength.
One fine morning the daughter noticed something shining near the hen. Eagerly she took the shining piece to her mother. It was a golden egg.
Next day the hen laid another golden egg. Every day the hen used to lay a golden egg. Within a month they had become rich.
But the man became greedy. He wanted to acquire huge wealth quickly. So he wanted to slit the hen to take out all the gold from it. His wife advised him not to do so.
But his greed had overcome the logic. One evening he slit the hen. Alas! He could not find anything. Now he lost the opportunity of getting one golden egg every day.
Moral: Greed kills logic.
