उचित पुरस्कार (Just Rewards)



Chinese folktale of greed and generosity, ‘ उचित पुरस्कार ‘, tells the story of two neighbours who meet the consequences of their actions.

When one neighbour notices an injured bird and nurses it with care, he is rewarded with riches! The other neighbour feels jealous. He too brings an injured bird home and nurses it but for selfish ends. At the end, he begets a reward but a very different one.
