The moral story of the honesty
Chintu and Banti were good friends. They had great confidence in each other. Banti was a very honest boy. Once, they decided to enjoy their holidays together. They went out to a hill station for a week.
Both enjoyed their stay at the hill station. After seven days, they planned to return. When they reached the station to board the train, they found a bag lying on the station platform. Chintu noticed it first and picked it up. He opened it and saw that it contained a lot of cash and jewelry in it.
Chintu tried to hide it in his suitcase. But Banti suggested, “Chintu, we are honest people. We should not keep it with us. Somebody has missed it. We should ask people at the station. If someone claims and can tell the exact details, we shall hand over this bag to him”.
Chintu said, don’t tell anyone, it will be foolish, and everyone will claim to us for this bag. We have fond it; then it is mine.
Banti said, “What are you talking? In case you do not want to give it to its owner, we should divide it into two equal parts. Both of us have found it. We have shared every moment, every food, and every joy here together. Therefore, we should divide the cash and jewelry also into two parts to enjoy together”.
“I don’t agree with you. I saw it first, and so it is mine”. Saying so Chintu kept the bag in his possession.
Meanwhile, the train arrived at the station. Chintu and Banti boarded it. Once they occupied their seats, they were at ease and began talking to each other. Time was rolling on. When the night fell, they started feeling sleepy. After some time the train halted at the next station. Suddenly they saw some police officers entering their compartment. Chintu was frightened to see them. He tried to put his suitcase behind his back.
Chintu whispered in Banti’s ear, “We are in great trouble. The police have come. They would arrest us and put us behind bars. You know, we have not stolen the bat”.
The police saw lines of terror in Chintu’s face and became suspicious about him. They searched his belongings and found the bag. They had come for searching the bag. They arrested him and sent him to jail. Now Chintu was repenting that he should have listened to his friend’s advice.
