The Poor Man’s Wealth

Ramchand and Premchand were neighbors. Ramchand was a poor farmer. Premchand was a landlord.

Ramchand used to be very relaxed and happy. He never bothered to close the doors and windows of his house at night. He had deep sound sleeps. Although he had no money he was peaceful.

Premchand used to be very tense always. He was very keen to close the doors and windows of his house at night. He could not sleep well. He was always bothered that someone might break open his safes and steal away his money. He envied the peaceful Ramchand.

One day, Premchand call Ramchand and gave him a boxful of cash saying, “Look my dear friend. I am blessed with plenty of wealth. I find you in poverty. So, take this cash and live in prosperity.”

Ramchand was overwhelmingly happy. He was joyful throughout the day. Night came. Ramchand went to bed as usual. But, to-day, he could not sleep. He went and closed the doors and windows. He still could not sleep. He began to keep on looking at the box of cash. The whole night he was disturbed.

As soon as day broke, Ramchand took the box of cash to Premchand. He gave away the box to Premchand saying, “Dear Friend, I am poor. But, your money took away peace from me. Please bear with me and take back your money.”

Moral: Money can not get everything. Learn to be satisfied with what you have and you will always be happy.

  52. A good story ……………good Not good but very good

  53. that’s fantastic story in this time

  54. that’s fantastic story in this time in my life

  55. most of people know that money can’t give happiness forever but why still so many of them trapped by money?

  57. amazing .I think we should put on our mind that money cannot buy the peaceful of one person

  58. i believe that money is not at all for gaining a good life but a man should have even satisfaction and that’s what the story tells all about

    Moral is Money can’t buy you happiness only you can :)

  60. money cannot buy salvation and happiness.

  61. MONEY IS NOT IMPORTANT BUT PEOPLE CANNOT UNDERSTAND .THEY LOST THERE PEACE AND HAPINESS TO EARN MONEY

  62. nic story can anyone provide me story in hindi

  63. What A nice Story

  64. What A nice Story

  65. With the help of money we can’t do anything the story tells about this.

  66. This STORY makes you POOR… And YES, Money can buy Happiness… Not every Happiness though but it can surely buy some Happiness…

  67. MONEY IS NEED IN OUR DAILY LIFE

  68. Awesome story

  69. The moral is very nice

  70. NICE WEBSITE AND VERY NICE STORIES NOT VERY SHORT STORY NOT VERY LONG STORY , PERFECT STORY I LIKE ALL THE STORIES :-)

  71. i like this story

  72. Very good story because every one has been working for money ,money….
    you earn money not a problem but you don’t live for only earning money because you can’t bring along with you..a man satisfied all these things at one of the time but a man wont be satisfied with money earning isuses..

  73. The moral is good

  74. wow!!! i like it;;;;

  75. AMAZING.VERY NICE.

  76. like the story

  77. Good Write up

  78. friend help each other

  79. it is very usefull

  80. The awsomest story EVER.

  81. wow!!!!!! so nice story I Like It

  82. Good Story.

  83. good moral

  84. Yeah, because, obviously a man that rich can’t afford any kind of weapons, fences, guards or even attack dogs. This story is not good. If you want to be at peace knowing that your money is protected, you don’t have to stay up all night watching them, like that’s gonna stop any thief. Go and do what any wise man would do, invest heavily in your protection and, trust me, you’ll sleep at night better than one so poor he doesn’t even closes his house at night. At least you probably will have a better bed and your belly full than such a poor man.

  85. somebody is good
    somebody commented with no name behind
    i think your good in everything

  86. not all things can buy money..

  87. TRUE PEACE AND HAPPINESS IS NOT FOUND IN A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY BUT IT FOUND IN THE HOLY PRESENCE OF GOD….YOU ARE ONLY BE SECURED IN THE HANDS OF GOD….

  88. You don’t need to have money to have a happy life you just need to have love,faith and peace

  89. This moral is bad,,
    Who told money cant buy happiness, If you like this story and agree with this moral story, you are probably poor and u dont know how to make money.

    Im happy with all the wealth i have. And sleeping peacefully too on a beautiful couch, I enjoy the healthy and delicious meal on my dining table, i ride & drive the best. Its all because i love money.

    Take a look at the poor how he is sleeping.

  90. Well said and it is a thoughtful and inspiring story. Money is the by-product not our master. In fact, happiness is our nature so we need not to seek it from the external conditions but by appreciating what we already have and fulfilling our purpose.

  91. Very good story…. ever! Q

  92. Best story of the world

  93. excellent story

  94. mr.nareen u r wrong….without money also so many peoples leaving happily…………

  95. @NAREN but look at you attitude. ^_^ and you can never appriciate how people feel when they sleep like that cause i think your too scared haha. ciao ciao dont read moral lessons if u cant absorb it.

  96. money cant buy happiness

  97. Money CAN buy happiness but good story, money isn’t everything :)

  98. if you need happiness God always there to give what you wish

  99. nice yaar must read wanna read…………………..

  117. It’s reality

  118. This is mind blowing story I like it

  119. But the story makes not mention of the back breaking life of a farmer. Would Ramchand’s retirement from the hot, sunny fields be of value to Ramchand?

  120. i am happy to read this story

  121. This really is an amazing

  122. This really is an amazing story it is really good 🤗🤗🤗🤗😃😃😃😃😃

  123. I AGREE WITH RUSS. BUT ” CONTENTMENT “, ONCE achieved, IS BETTER THAN ” HAPPY”, WHICH IS EASILY DESTROYED, BY ALMOST anything.
