HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY 

Once there’ lived a poor farmer who worked terribly laborious to keep up his big family. however, he could hardly manage 2 square meals daily. 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 must 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 takes in a paper packet covered with some ragged clothes. She told the farmer to use all the money for themselves. The farmer was a great problem. However, he announced in the market that a basket was found by him. The real owner could take it from him proving his/her real identity. At last the owner was found. He gave the farmer 10 thousand takes being more than happy with him. With the cash, the farmer started a little business. In course of time, he became a rich man. His poverty disappeared and he became a happy man. Thus his honesty was rewarded.
