A short story that I read.
A Child went to a shop with his mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle full of sweets and said ‘Dear Child.. You can take the sweets.” but the child didn’t take.
The shop keeper was surprised. Such a child he is and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle.
Again he asked to take the sweets. Now the mother also heard that and said, “Take the sweets, dear”. Yet he didn’t take.
The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets. He himself took the sweets and gave to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets. While returning home the Mother asked the child. Why didn’t you take the sweets, when the shop keeper told you to take? The Child replied, “Mom! my hands are very small. If I take the sweets I can take only few but when uncle gave with his big hands, see how many sweets I have got!”
