Tit For Tat

Once upon a time in the village of Ramapur, there lived an artist named Chitrasena. He had a small shop in the village,where he exhibited his paintings. Daily Chitrasena used to go to his shop and display his paintings in the shop and also on the tree in front of the shop to attract passersby. As his shop was located in a busy market, many people who passed by, stopped to look at his paintings and some times even brought them. Due to his excellent skills Chitrasena became a well known painter in the town though he did not earn much.
One day a business man was passing through Chritrasena's shop. He was amazed to see the skills of Chitrasena. He went in and said, "I am amazed with your skills. I am Sweatavana and I am here to offer you an interesting assignment. Back in my town I am constructing a big mansion I have purchased everything needed but till now I have not found any one who can complete the mansion. But today I found you." He said that Chitrasen's Job was to paint his mansion. The business man gave him the address of his mansion. Chitrasena went home to share the news with his family. The next day he went to the town and located the mansion. He was amazed to see such a huge mansion. The business man welcomed him and took him all over the house. He discussed about the work and then Chitrasena started the work immediately. It took him five months to paint the mansion. When Chitrasena asked the business man for his payment he told that he was a little busy that day and asked him to come back after a couple of days. That day Chitrasena went back home to meet his family after five months. After a couple of days, he went again to collect his payment but the guards of the mansion stopped him and did not allow him inside. Chitrasena made a couple of visits to the business man but everytime he avoided him with some or any other reason. Chitrasena understood that Sweatavana had no intensions to give him the payment. He decided to teach him a lesson. The next day he collected his paints and brushes and walked into the busy market. He cleared the middle of the road and started to paint. After he finished painting, the people around said that it was Sweatavana's face. Stray dogs and cars ran over the painting. This news reached Sweatavana and he realised his mistake. He apologised to Chitrasena and quickly gave him his payment. Chitrasena too erased the painting from the busy market and he also learnt not to blindly trust any one.
