Don’t count your eggs before they’re hatched Short Story
Once upon a time, there lived a farmer in a village. He had a daughter who was very imaginative. She was unhappy with life and she often took refuge in her day dreaming. Once her father gave her a bucket full of milk and asked her to sell it in the market. In the way, her day dreaming started working. Her imaginative flight took her into a prosperous future. She thought that the market would be thronged with the people and mild would be sold like hot cakes. In this way, she would be able to earn a handsome amount of money. This money would enable her father to start a business. The business would prosper quickly and they would become prosperous within no time. She was completely forgetful of her surroundings, even of herself.
She thought that her wealth would make her life glamorous. Costly and colourful dresses would add to her beauty and she would spend a luxurious life. Thus, every handsome and rich young man in the area would be impressed by her wealth and beauty. There would be a lot of marriage proposals for her but she would turn down these proposals. While saying this, she shook her head. As she did so, the milk bucket fell on the ground and all the milk spilt out of it. This loss brought her back from her day dreaming. She realized her foolishness and cursed herself a lot. But, realizing that it is useless to cry over spilt milk, she returned home sadly.
