THE MIDAS TOUCH|मुफ्त लघु कथाएं
We all know the story of the greedy king
named Midas. He had a lot of gold and the
more he had the more he wanted. He stored
all the gold in his vaults and used to spend
time every day counting it.
One day, while he was counting a stranger,came from nowhere and said he would grant him
a wish. The king was delighted and said,
"I would like everything I touch to turn to
gold." The stranger asked the king, Are you
sure?" The king replied, "Yes." So the stranger
said, "Starting tomorrow morning with the
sun rays you will get the golden touch." The
king thought he must be dreaming, this
couldn't be true. But the next day when he
woke up, he touched the bed, his clothes, and
everything turned to gold. He looked out of
thought she would be happy. But before
he went to the garden he decided to read abook. The moment he touched it, it turned into gold and he couldn't read it. Then he sat to have breakfast and the moment he touched the fruit and the glass of water, they turned tto gold
. He was getting hungry and he said tohimself, "I can't eat and drink gold." Just about
that time his daughter came running
and he hugged her and she turned into a gold
statue. There were no more smiles left.
The king bowed his head and started crying.
The stranger who gave the wish came again
and asked the king if he was happy with his
golden touch. The king said he was the most
miserable man. The stranger asked, "What
would you rather have, your food and loving
daughter or lumps of gold and her golden
statue?" The king cried and asked forforgiveness. He said, "I will give up all my gold
. Please give me my daughter back
because without her I have lost everything wo
rth having." The stranger said to the king,
"You have become wiser than before" and he
reversed the spell. He got his daughter back in
his arms and the king learned a lesson that he
never forget for the rest of his life.
What is the moral of the story?
1. Distorted values lead to tragedy.
2. Sometimes getting what you want may be a
bigger tragedy than not getting what you
want.3. Unlike the game of soccer where players can
be substituted, the game of life allows no
substitutions or replays. We may not get a
second chance to reverse our tragedies, as the
