Once there lived a poor farmer who worked very hard to maintain his big family.But he could hardly manage two squares meals a day.One day while working in the field he found a basket. He picked it up and carried it home. His wife became very pleased to see it. She thought the basket contain some valuable things. By selling those things, they could overcome their poverty and enjoy happy days. But the farmer was an honest man. He was not at all interested to use anything inside the basket. His wife opened it and found fifty thousand taka in a paper packet covered with some ragged clothes. She told the farmer to use all the money for themselves. The farmer was in a great problem. However, he announced in the market that a basket was found by him. The real owner could take it from him showing/proving his/her real identity. At last the owner was found. He gave the farmer ten thousand taka being very pleased with him. With the money the farmer started a small business. In course of time, he became a rich man. His poverty disappeared and he became a happy man. Thus his honesty was rewarded.

Once an old man was walking by the riverside. In course of walking, he suddenly fell to the ground and then rolled down to water. The old man was not in a position to rescue himself. At that moment a little boy was bathing nearby in the river.The little boy saw this incident and started shouting. A passer-by was going by the river but he was not responding to the shouting of the boy. Most provably the man was deaf. However, the boy continued shouting and he was at a loss what to do. He suddenly found a piece of banana tree floating near him. He jumped and clasped the tree. Then he swam to the man and helped him catch the banana tree. Then they two somehow managed to reach the shore. There exiting and fearful sound drew the attention of another two passer-by who happened to walk through the road by the river. They came forward to help them. They all together took the old man to his house. All the members of his family appreciated the little boy highly.

Once there lived a famous king.He was fond of knowing his future.He often invited the best astrologer of the kingdom.A good astrologer happened to stop at his capital on his way to Beneras.The king called on him to know his future and the astrologer said something unpleasant.At this the king got furious and condemned him to death saying,”Men like you should not live to spoil the peace of the world.”But another thought crossed his mind before the astrologer was removed for execution.”How long would you live?”asked the king.This astrologer mused for a while for some way of escape,as he was sure the king would prove him a liar putting him to death then there,if he would live longer than that day.With ready wit he said,’’The stars declare that I shall die only a week before your majesty.So,good-bye.I shall wait to receive your Majesty where you have been sending me”.At this the king turned pale as dead and shouted,”Drive this wrech away,let him not come again.”
