Honesty Never Goes in Vain Completing Story
Honesty Never Goes in Vain Completing Story. Long long ago, there was a cloth trader who did business in a shop in a far away market. His home was two or three districts away. He had a boy shop assistant who did not know where his master’s home was. One day, on some emergency, the trader quickly left the shop for home entrusting the boy with his business for a few days. Days, months, years passed by but there was no trace of his master.
The boy cherished the hope that one day the master would come. Every morning he came and opened the shop and sold goods to the customers until he closed it at 10 o’clock at night. He saved the money earned from selling goods in order to give it to the master. He had all chances to take it for himself, but he did not adopt any dishonest means. His good behavior and honesty brought more and more customers to the shop; the number of public interest increased day by day.
One day after many years the master came back. He had grown old and his appearance had changed in those years. He introduced himself to the assistant boy. He recognized his master and handed over all the money he had obtained from the business. The master was overwhelmed with gratefulness to the boy; he made the boy the owner of the shop and blessed him from the bottom of his heart.
