A man with a lamp
Once upon a time, there was a man who couldn’t see and lived by himself in a small town. Even though he was blind, he carried a lamp with him whenever he went out at night.
One evening as he was coming home, he came across a group of young travelers. They saw that he was blind and noticed he was carrying a lamp. They started talking and making fun of him. One of them asked, “Hey man! If you’re blind and can’t see anything why do you carry a lamp?”
The blind man replied, “I might not be able to see anything but the lamp is for the people like you who can see. You may not see a blind man coming and end up running into me. That is why I carry a lamp”.
The group of travelers were embarrassed and apologized for their behavior.
Moral: Think before judging others. Always be polite and try to see things from others’ point of view.
