Once upon a time there was a small-time businessman from a small village who sold butter in the nearby town. A big shop owner in the town was his regular customer.

The villager would deliver every month to the shop owner the required butter in 1Kg blocks and in return he got grocery items like sugar, flour, and rice etc from the shop owner.

One day, the shop owner decided to weigh the butter and to his surprise each block of butter weighed only 900 grams, instead of 1kg.

So, the next month when the villager came to supply the Butter, the shop owner was very angry and told him to leave the shop at once. To this, the villager replied courteously: "Sir, I am a very poor villager, I do not have enough money to even buy the required weights for weighing the butter, I usually put the 1Kg sugar you give me on the one side of the Weighing scale and weigh the butter on the other side."

MORAL: This beautifully illustrates that what we give to others comes back to us.
