AROUND THE GLOBE TALES

Disputed Waters

A man sold a well to a farmer, but when the farmer went to draw water from it, stopped him and said:
"I sold you the well but not the water. You will have to pay separately for the water."
The farmer of course refused and the case was taken to a Kazi (judge). After hearing both sides the Kazi said to the man who had sold the well:
"Since you sold only the well, you have no right to keep your water in it. Pay a rent to this farmer for using his well or take your water out at once!"
The man realised that he had been outwitted, and bowing to the Kazi quietly left the court.
