CRIPPLED MAN – STORY
Once upon a time, there lived a crippled man. This man was married, but he was attracted to the girl that lived in the house opposite.
One day his wife saw him looking very morose.
“What’s wrong, my dear husband?” she inquired.
“Even though I am married to you,” he replied, “I am attracted to that girl. I am asking you to make an arrangement for me.”
So being a very chaste and obedient wife, she wished to fulfill her husband’s desire, and she began going to the girl’s house when no-one was home, and clean there.
After a while this girl noticed, “Someone is cleaning my house. I am not asking anyone to do this, so I wonder who it could be?”
So one day the girl stayed back, and after some time the crippled man’s wife came and began cleaning.
The girl approached her and said, “Why are you doing this?”
She replied, “My husband is very attracted to you, and he wants to meet with you, but we are very poor, and cannot afford to pay. So instead I am offering some service.”
The girl said, “Very well, send him over tonight.”
That night the girl prepared a sumptuous feast of rice, dal, sabji etc, and she served a portion of each of these preparations onto two plates, one gold and one silver.
When the man arrived, she requested him to partake of the food she had prepared him.
“Please take from the silver plate.,” she told him.
After he had finished all the food on the silver plate, the girl told him to take from the gold plate.
When he had finished, the girl inquired from the man, “Now, did you taste the difference?”
Surprised, the man replied, “What difference? These are exactly the same preparations, only served on different plates. You must be crazy!”
“No, you are the crazy one!” the girl returned.
“Whatever I give to you, are already given to you by your wife also. So, having a chaste wife, you are searching the new pleasures from other women like me. Be loyal to your wife.”
The man returned home with shame and started to love his wife more than before.
