The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs
The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs :
Once in a village lived a poor man. He had a goose. It laid eggs. But these eggs were different from the eggs laid by other eggs.
The poor man’s goose laid a golden egg everyday.
The poor man took the egg to the town and sold it.
He got a lot of money by selling the golden egg. He was a happy man.
One day he said to himself, “I get one golden egg only everyday. Why not I have all the eggs at a time. Then I will become very rich. So, I will kill the goose and take all the eggs."
And so the poor man killed the goose.
And what did he find?
The goose was like any other goose. He could not find a single golden egg. The goose died.
From that day the man did not get his golden egg, he used to get everyday.
