Being poor is a sin in the world. One who comes hurl abuses, blames or insults as if poor has no emotions or feelings. Everyday his mother has to go through this. She was servant in the mansion and he used to accompany her everyday. He didn’t like when his mom has to face abuses when she is not wrong. He used to see tears in the corner of her eye every single time whenever her owner insults.

One day the owner was blaming his mom on stealing some valueables. She was pleading and denying but he was in no mood to listen. He grabbed her hand and pulled her outside. Her son who was playing in the lawn was watching everything that was happening with his mom. It was too much to bear for the little child. He picked up a stone and put it in the catapul targetting the owner, it stricked hard on his forehead. He was shocked by the little boy’s action. The boy came forward and said, “I am sorry. I just hit you with the small stone and it gave you so much pain and anger. You always insults my mom and your abusive words hits my heart just like the catapulated stones and hurts me badly.” At that moment one of the servant came running outside with the lost valueables and said, ” Sir, I think you forgot this in the meeting room.”

She said, “We are poor but never steal. We too have self respect.” Owner felt guilty. Before he could say anything mom and son left the mansion forever.
