Once upon a time, there lived a boy named Bast. He was a curious and naïve young boy, and his parents had taken great care of him. He was a happy and friendly child and everyone loved him.
One day Bast went to visit his grandmother who lived in a small village far away. As he was walking around the village he stumbled upon a beautiful garden full of colorful flowers. Bast was mesmerized by the beauty and ran into the garden to explore. As he was running, he came across a large banyan tree which was full of small fruits.
Bast’s curiosity got the best of him and he couldn’t help himself but to pluck one of the fruits. He was surprised to find that it was a sweet, juicy and delicious fruit. He couldn’t wait to tell his parents about his interesting discovery. He quickly plucked all the fruits from the tree and put them in his pocket.
When he returned home, his parents were very angry with him. They scolded Bast for stealing and warned him that there are consequences for such actions. But Bast didn’t understand why stealing was wrong.
His grandmother on the other hand, was understanding and explained to him why stealing is wrong. She told him that every human being has a right to privacy and that they don’t want others to take away their belongings without permission. She also explained that when one takes something that doesn’t belong to them, they become guilty of stealing.
Bast now understood why stealing was wrong and apologized to his parents for his mistake. From that day forward, Bast became determined to never to steal again and to always be honest.
The moral of the story is that honesty is the best policy. Everyone has a right to privacy and it is wrong to take something that doesn’t belong to you without permission. We should always be honest and respect others by not taking away their belongings.
