Once a horse tied outside a house ………..an Afghan stole it………. he was caught by the police……….. he was taken to a court of law ………..each one (the Afghan and the real owner of the horse) claimed the horse to be his………… in the test the Afghan failed and he was sent to the prison.

Ans:-                                       THE BLIND HORSE

Once upon a time, there was a very beautiful horse. It was tied outside a house. An Afghan passed that way. He saw the horse with eyes of greed. He wanted to get the horse at all cost.

He crept up to the horse. He loosened his bridle, rode the horse and galloped away. The owner who heard the horse gallop away ran after the thief. He raised a great hue and cry on the way. People also ran to catch the thief red-handed. The police, too, Came in. The Afghan was caught but he claimed that the horse was his. Now the police, too, was in a fix. The Afghan, the owner of the horse and the horse all the flute were taken to the court.

The judge heard the two parties very patiently. Then cross-examination began. The Afghan said, “Since the time when the ‘horse was a foal, I looked after him. How can I desert my claim to the horse?” The real owner at once, seeing no other alternative, threw his shawl on the face of the horse. Now he asked, ” Which eye of the horse is blind?” Without thinking twice, the Afghan said, “Left eye—surmising it to be a right guess.”

But actually, it was a wrong guess. The real owner became bold, removed the shawl and said, “No eye is defective. Both the eyes are all right” The owner got the horse and the Afghan thief got the jail.

Moral: Theft is theft.


           Dishonesty never pays.
