Short Story – Being Rich 5/5 (1)

One day a rich man took his son out to a remote village with the motivation behind to show how unfortunate and poor that people can be. They spent 3 days in a hut, near open farm, what could be considered very poor.

On their return, the man asked, ‘How was the trip?’

‘It was extraordinary, Dad’ his son answered.

‘Did you notice how poor and less blessed individuals can be? ‘ the rich man asked

‘Goodness ! Yes’ said the son.

‘So what did you observe? ‘ asked the man.

His son replied – ‘I saw that we have one dog and they had 4 dogs. We have a pool that compasses to the center of our garden and they have a spring that has no closure. We have imported lights in our nursery, and they have the stars around in evening time. We have a little space to live on and they have fields that go past our sight. We have maids who serve us, but they serve others. We purchase our food, however they grow their own. We have long walls and lockers around our property to secure us, they have companions to secure them.’

After listening it, the rich man was speechless and his son concluded, ‘ Thanks Dad for showing me how poor and less lucky we are’
