FARMER AND THE FATE


A poor famer was passing trough woods, going to a town to buy goods for the upcoming festival. the festival is the occasion when villagers used to spent their earnings which they have earned throughout the year. but something unexpected happened he was robbed on the way by dacoits of the forest who were famous and dreaded for such notorieties of theirs, the head of this gang was a robust man with big moustache, he looked ugly and ferocious. when they held the man and coerced him to give away his money and belongings he pleaded them for pity as the festival is approaching, and after a long time of restrain and hardship his kids and wife are looking his way for some good time so that they can enjoy that ephemeral moment to get ready for the arduous routine, kindly dont trample that hope of theirs, when i will go home wretched and empty i wont be able to see that hope melting down to tears on their cheeks. its this hope on which we poor live, kindly dont do this to me, whatever else you will ask me to do i will do that, listening to all his pleads, the dacoits who were till now oblivious of all thier virtue and morality melt down and, got ready to leave him but on condition that farmer will not tell about this incident to other people as it will ruin their prospets of their future loots, as hearing about his amnesty all people will pretend to them to be poor and desperate and thouh we are in this profession we cant stand such emotive compunctions, farmer wailing for life get readily agreed to their terms and thanked god, he went to town bought goods and took them back home, seeing their father back with new clothes and sweets children became vivacious and told their mother about his arrival who also came out to see him, all of them celebrated the festival went to temple ate some nice food and  slept with their heart filled with joy and stomach filled of delicious food , wife was looking at the trauma on his husband's face asked is everyting ok? husband said yes, but why are you asking this question, Wife told that he didnt looked that happy what he was on previous festivities and little restive too. He said yes on the way, but remembring his promise to dacoits he changed his sentence and said he met a wild beast and thats why he is little furious. wife believed him and slept though surprised as meeting wild beast is a common occurance in village and it has happened to him in the past. On next day when the family woke up and began their routine chores, husband went to farm, to his surprise he found that someone had watered his farm even before he came, amused at who could have done it he asked the nearby farmers, they were totally unaware about it but said probably god is happy at him and thus helping him, farmer though happy in his heart was still perplexed about what has happened. so he didnt had to do much hard work on that day as much of it has been already done he palnted some saplings of crop and as evening approached he left for home only to knew that someone has left grain sacks in the backyard of the home, now farmer was more perlexed as they didnt have even food to eat and again somebody has helped him, he did'nt slept all that night glad and bewildred, when he wake up he asked his wife to be cautious because of such mysterious things are happening. ( incomplete, just trying to see where does my imagination goes)
