The Villager and the Spectacles

The Villager And The Spectacles

There was a villager. He was uneducated. He didn't have any idea how to read and write. He frequently saw people wearing spectacles while reading books or papers. He started wondering 'If I also have spectacles, I can also read like these people. I should go to town and purchase a pair of spectacles for myself.”

So one day, he went to a town. He entered a spectacles shop and asked the shop owner for a pair of spectacles for reading. The shopkeeper gave him different pairs of spectacles and a book. The villager tried all the spectacles individually. But he was unable to read anything. He told the shop owner that all those spectacles were useless for him. 

The shopkeeper looked at him suspiciously. Then he checked the book out. It was upside down! The shopkeeper said, "Maybe you don't know how to read.” The villager said, "No, I don't. I need to purchase spectacles so that I can read like others. But I cannot read with any of these spectacles." The shop owner controlled his laughter with great difficulty when he understood the genuine problem of his uneducated customer.  The shopkeeper then said, "my dear friend, spectacles only correct your eye defect, not your reading and writing ability. To study first, you should learn how to read and write”.

The Moral of the Story

The moral of the Villager And The Spectacles is that ignorance is blindness.

The villagers heard the yell and rushed to help him. But when they arrived there, they could see no lion and the kid was perfectly alright. The kid giggled at the fellow villagers saying, 'No Lion; I did it just for the sake of entertainment.' The villagers got highly irritated and returned with anger.

He was uneducated, that was the reason he was unable to read. We should not ignore the main reason behind the cause.

3. What is the meaning of the idiom “As you sow, so shall you reap”?

The idiom “As you sow, so shall you reap” means that the way a person behaves with others will determine how others will behave toward him. If a person has good thoughts about others, he will have everyone’s trust and if a person has negative thoughts about others, other people will never talk to him and he will be left alone.
