Same Old Story

A hat-seller who was passing by a forest decided to take
a nap under one of the trees, so he left his whole basket of hats by the
side. A few hours later, he woke up and realized that all his hats were
gone.


He looked up and to his surprise, the tree was full of monkeys and they
had taken all his hats. The jaat sits down and thinks of how he can get
the hats down.


While thinking he started to scratch his head. The next moment, the
monkeys were doing the same. Next, he took down his own hat, the monkeys
did exactly the same. An idea came to him, he took his hat and threw it
on the floor and the monkeys did that too. So he finally managed to get
all his hats back.


Fifty years later, his grandson, Sukhwinder, also became a hat-seller
and had heard this monkey story from his grandfather. One day, just like
his grandfather, he passed by the same forest. It was very hot, and he
took a nap under the same tree and left the hats on the floor.


He woke up and realized that all his hats were taken by the monkeys on
the tree. He remembered his grandfather?s words, started scratching his
head and the monkeys followed. He took down his hat and fanned himself
and again the monkeys followed. Now, very convinced of his grandfather's
idea, Sukhwinder threw his hat on the floor but to his surprise, the
monkeys still held on to all the hats.


Then one monkey climbed down the tree, grabbed the hat on the floor,
gave him a slap and said to him "You think only you have a grandfather ?!!!"
