One fine night, he was walking with a lighted lamp in his hand. A group of men walking by watched this awful scene and began making fun of blind man’s act of carrying a lamp. One of them said, “Hey blind man! Why do you need the lighted lamp when you can’t see anything?”
The blind man replied, “I am not carrying this one for myself but for the people with vision like you. You might not see a blind man coming and collide with me.”
The group of men then realized the mistake and begged apology.

Once upon a time, there was a merchant living in a village and he had a donkey. He was a dealer in salt and he used to carry sacks of salt on donkey. Every time he went for a deal, he had to cross that stream to go to other village.
While crossing the stream, the donkey accidently fell into the stream and there dissolved all the salt reducing the weight on the donkey. Donkey got an idea and became happy. He then began to intentionally fall into the stream every time he crossed one. His master, though, was wise and he suspected the evil intention of his donkey.
Next day, the merchant loaded the donkey with pile of clothes. The stupid donkey, again, fell into the stream thinking the weight will reduce. But instead, the clothes absorbed water and became heavier. He got tired and then realized the mistake thereby not falling into the stream like that ever again.
