TALES FROM READERS

Speaking Garden and Speaking Well

A farmer named Vashram Bhuva lived in a village. He had a garden of vegetables. One greedy man named Dala Tarvadi also lived in the same village. He always found ways to buy things cheap.
One day Dala Tarvadi was passing by Vashram Bhuva's vegetable garden. He saw there was nobody in the garden. So he decided to steal some vegetables. He went near the Brinjal plant (also known as Eggplant). He told himself that stealing is a sin so he should take permission of the garden.
He asked the garden:
“Garden O Garden!”
Then he himself replied as a garden:
"Yes Dala Tarvadi!"
Then he asked the garden:
"Should I take 3-4 Brinjals?”
Again he replied as a garden:
"Why 3-4? Take 10-12!”
Thus he picked up few brinjals and satisfied himself that he had not stolen the brinjals but taken the permission of the garden.
He did this daily and picked up different vegetables from the garden. The owner of the garden Vashram Bhuva noticed that everyday some vegetables are being stolen from his garden. So he decided to keep a watch.
He stood behind a big tree to see who was stealing the vegetables. Dala Tarvadi entered the garden. He took the permission of the garden to take some vegetables. Then he himself replied as the garden and gave permission to take vegetables.
Vashram Bhuva caught Dala Tarvadi. Dala Tarvadi told him that he was not stealing the vegetables but taking permission from the garden. Vashram Bhuva became very angry on this thief. He decided to teach him a lesson. He took him to the well.
Vashram Bhuva asked the Well:
"Well O Well!”
Then he himself replied as a well:
"Yes Vashram Bhuva!”
Vashram Bhuva asked the well:
"Should I pour water on Dala Tarvadi 3-4 times?"
Then again he replied as a well:
"Pour 10-12 times”.
Vashram Bhuva poured 10-12 times water on Dala Tarvadi's face. Dala Tarvadi started crying and told Vashram Bhuva that he will never steal again.
Thus Vashram Bhuva used the same trick as Dala Tarvadi to teach him a lesson.
