We should always tell the truth
Ramanna was a fisherman. He never used to tell a lie. One day, he went to catch fish but unluckily, could not catch even a single fish. He thought, what should I say to my wife if she asks about fish? I cannot lie.’ Then an idea came to his mind. He went to the fish market and said to a fish vendor, “I want five big fishes. But you will have to throw them towards me. I will catch them.” The fish vendor agreed. He threw five big fishes towards Ramanna which he caught. The fish vendor asked him, “Why did you ask me to throw the fish in this way.” Ramanna replied smilingly, “I don’t lie. I will tell my wife that I have caught these fishes.”
Moral: We should always tell the truth.
