Story on Moral Necessity is the Mother of Invention
Necessity is the Mother of Invention
A farmer had four sons. All of them were lazy and did nothing. He advised them many times to work but all in vain. At last, he fell seriously ill.
He sent for his sons and told them about a hidden treasure buried in the fields. Saying this, he passed away. The four sons dug all the fields deep. But they found no treasure. A wise man advised them to sow seeds in the fields.
They sowed the land and after some days, bumper crop grew in the fields. Then they realized the wisdom of their father. They gave up the laziness and became hard working farmers.
