UNUSED RICHES ARE USELESS
Once there was a miser having a lot of gold. He melted it down in a lump and buried it in a pit. He was very happy that he had hidden his gold safely. So, he kept gloating over his treasure almost all the time. He used to visit the spot regularly where he had hidden the gold.
One of his friend's was keeping an eye on him and one day he discovered the secret. And one night he went to the pit and dug the gold lump for himself.
On his next visit to the spot, the miser lamented on finding no gold over there. Hearing his cries, one of his neighbours came to him and asked what the matter was
. The miser replied, "I am ruined. Someone has stolen my treasure.
" The neighbour consoled him and said, "Your money was lying useless. Now, at least it will be of use to someone."
