Once upon a time, in a village, there lived a farmer and his family. They had a special hen that laid a golden egg every day. The farmer, however, was not satisfied with just one egg each day. He wanted to be rich instantly.
One day, the farmer came up with a plan. He thought that if he could get all the golden eggs at once, he would become very wealthy. But to do that, he decided to kill the hen.
The next day, when the hen laid its golden egg, the farmer took a knife and sadly killed the hen. He was hoping to find all the golden eggs inside. But when he opened the hen, there was nothing but blood. There were no eggs at all. The farmer felt really sad because now he had lost the hen and wouldn’t get any more eggs.
Before, the farmer had a good life with one golden egg every day, but because of his greed, he had made himself poor. Every day, he became poorer and poorer until he had nothing left. He realized how foolish he had been and regretted his actions.
Moral of the Story: Don’t be greedy, appreciate what you have.
