Short Story on “One On Two Stools Surely Falls”
Once upon a time there was a man who was around fifty in age. His hair was turning grey. But he had a very romantic nature. He loved to be in the company of beautiful women.
Now, the man had two beloveds—one about his own age while the other quite youthful. He tried to look as attractive as he could. But the behaviour of his beloveds were skies apart.
The older beloved didn’t like the man to look younger to her. So, whenever he came to her, she pulled out some dark hairs out of his head to make him look older.
On the other hand, the young beloved didn’t like her lover to look older. So, whenever he came to her, she pulled out some grey hairs out of his head to make him look youthful.
It went on for quite some time and a day came when no hair was left on the man’s head. He had become perfectly bald. As a result, both the ladies rejected him. How sad indeed ! Learn to be guided by your own self
