Short Story on “Greedy Travellers”
Once, three friends set out on a journey in search of some job. On the way they found a bag full of gold coins. They decided to divide it equally among themselves. They felt hungry so they sent one of them to the nearby town to bring food. The man who was sent to the town thought of killing the other two and occupy the whole treasure himself so he poisoned the food and returned to them. The remaining two friends were also greedy. They decided in his absence to kill him and to divide the treasure between themselves. As soon as he reached there they attacked him and killed him. After this they ate the poisoned food and died at once. In this way the greed, not only deprived them of the treasure but also of their lives.
