Harvest - Chitra

Harvest

Once upon a time there lived a very powerful king of the kingdom of swarnapuri. It was a very prosperous state and people were very happy.

 As years rolled by the kingdom came by a difficult time and they had to cut short the expenses.

 One of the ministers came up with the idea that the old people over the age of seventy should be sent away. Since they added upto twenty five percent of the population, sending them away would save the cost of maintaining them and therefore be helpful for the economy.

 The king was taken by this idea and he passed an ordinance stating that all the people over seventy in his kingdom should go away to live in the nearby forest.

All the people felt very sad but could not disobey the king, so everybody sent away their parents except for one man who hid his father in the cellar below and secretly maintained him there. Every day he would go give him food and talk with him for some time and come away.

 Winter set in and the whole place was covered in snow. One of the days the king found out that there was not enough grains in stock to pull through the winter season. So he announced a large sum of money for the idea to grow crops in winter. Our hero went to his father with this piece of info and the old man gave him a solution which he promptly told the king. The idea was to clear all the snow from either sides of the road and plough it. Miraculously after sometime they saw crops coming up there. So our hero was called upon and was given the reward when he owned up saying that it was his father’s idea. The king realized his fault and brought the old man to the court and asked him directly as to how he came upon this idea, the old man said that it was a simple fact that the carts carrying grains would have spilled them on the roadsides.

The king thanked him and took back the ordinance and all the senior citizens came back to live happily with their kith and kin.

குழந்தைகள் சிறப்பு #சிறுகதை - வாய்மையே வெல்லும் - அக்ஷயா
ஏமாற்றத்தில் இருந்த சுரேஷால் அமைதியாக இருக்க இயலவில்லை.
“சார், கதிரவன் என் காலை தடுக்கி விட்டதால தான் நான் இரண்டாவது வந்தேன் சார்” என்று குமரேசனிடம் புகார் அளித்தான்
இதை எதிர்பார்த்திருந்த கதிரவன் பதிலையும் தயாராக வைத்திருந்தான்.
“சார், அவன் ஜெயிக்கலைன்னு வீணா என் மேல புகார் சொல்றான் சார். அவனுக்கு அந்த அளவுக்கு அந்த முதல் பரிசு வேண்டுமென்றால் அதை அவனே வைத்துக் கொள்ளட்டும்” என்று நல்லவனை போல பேசினான்.

கதையை படிக்கத் தவறாதீர்கள் பிரென்ட்ஸ்!

காடும், காட்டை ஒட்டிய பகுதியுமாயிருந்த அந்த ஊரில் ஒரு சில குடும்பங்களே வசித்து வந்தன. அங்கே ஒரு விதவை தாயும் அவரின் மகளும் மகனும் வசித்து வந்தனர். அவர் பெயர் மீனா, மகள் பெயர் ரமா மகன் பெயர் சுரேஷ். அவர் காட்டை அடுத்து இருக்கும் மற்ற ஊர்களில் தினமும் பலகாரங்கள் சுட்டு எடுத்துக் கொண்டு போய் விற்று பிழைப்பு நடத்தி வந்தார்.

மீனா அந்த காட்டை கடந்துச் செல்லும் போதெல்லாம் ஒரு சிங்கம் தொந்தரவு செய்து வந்தது.
