The Ignorant Villager

Once upon a time in a hypothetical village named Palampur there lived a farmer Kishan. He did not know how to read and write. He was fascinated by villagers using glasses while reading and writing. He also wanted a pair for himself. So one day Kishan went to the town. He bought for himself a nice pair of glasses from the optical store. After buying it, he asked for a book from the shopkeeper to see whether the glasses were helping him to read. However, Kishan was disheartened because he could not read anything.

The Foolish BrahminThe shopkeeper noticed that Kishan was holding the book upside down and gave him a doubtful look. He said, “Perhaps you don’t know how to read”. Kishan told him that he bought the glasses in order to read like the other villagers.

To this, the shopkeeper replied, “Glasses are meant for improving vision and not for learning how to read; first of all, you must learn how to read and write, only then wearing glasses can help you.” Kishan walked away on realizing the truth.

Moral: Education is the only way to come out of ignorance.
