Story of Man’s cost

Advertisements

A boy working with his father in an iron shop suddenly asked his father – “Dad, what is the price of a man in this world?”

The father was surprised to hear such a serious question from a small child.

Then he said, “Son, it is very difficult to judge the value of a man, he is priceless.”

Children – are all equally valuable and important?

Father – Yes son.

The child did not understand anything, he again asked the question – then why is there any poor and some rich in this world? Why does someone have less respect than someone else?

Hearing the question, the father remained calm for some time and then asked the boy to bring an iron rod lying in the store room.

As soon as the rod was brought, the father asked – what will it cost?

Boys – 200 rupees.

Father – If I make many small nails out of it, then what will be its cost?

The boy said after thinking for a while – then it will be sold more expensive for about 1000 rupees.

Father – What if I make many springs of the clock with this iron?

The boy kept on calculating for some time and then suddenly excitedly said, “Then its price will be very high.”

Then the father explained to him and said – “In the same way, the value of man is not in what he is now, but in what he can make himself.”

The boy had understood his father’s point.

Friends, we often make a mistake in estimating our true value. We start thinking of ourselves as valueless by looking at our present status. But we always have immense power. Our life is always full of possibilities. Many times in our life the situations are not good but it does not reduce our value. We are born in this world as human beings, it means we are very special and important. We should always keep improving ourselves and keep moving towards getting our right price.
