Once upon a time there was a locksmith; he belonged to a very poor family. He had 4 children and old aged parents. His father was a patient of skin allergy. His wife was also earning money by working day and night and sewing clothes. He was living his life hand to mouth. Sometimes he used get fed up of it; but his wife always encouraged him to work hard with honesty and devotion. She always had a hope that one day they will be rewarded for their hard work and consistent dedication to their work.
There was another locksmith King City in the town, who was a very evil and dishonest person. He always used to look for money either it is to be acquired by fair means or by wrong way.
He had been using his skills of bypassing or unlocking the locks by duplicate keys to steal other’s cars. He was always struggling to get rich by unfair means. One day a wise man of the town came to the evil locksmith and he asked him to make a money box for him, which he had to fix on a tree. The aim of the wise man was to fix that box on a tree located in the center of the town. He wanted to collect money for charity from all the people of town and wanted to educate the poor children. The evil lock master made the box with a lock having two keys. He handed over the box to the wise man but kept the sketch of the key in his secret diary.
The wise man fixed that box on the tree with a board aside for charity appeal. He used to take out money from the box daily. After some days the evil locksmith made a duplicate key of the money box and stole all the money from the box. At the day the wise man was very astonished to see that the box empty. When the incident was repeated, the man got suspicion and he fixed a hidden camera. The next day evil locksmith came to steal money and was recorded in the camera. The wise man saw the camera recording and called the police to arrest the evil lock maker.
Then the poor hardworking and honest locksmith King City came to the wise man and asked him that he would make a money box which will be having a digital lock and the pin code for the lock would be only known to the wise man. The wise man was so impressed by the locksmith’s honesty and sincerity to the profession. He offered him a big reward. Then the lock master opened a big shop of locks and his wife also bought new automatic sewing machine. He also got his father medically treated and he got well. He was very happy that his honesty had made him live at his own. He was so happy and contented. Moral: Honesty is the best policy to be successful in life. Evil deeds always lead to an evil ending.
