The Milkmaid And Her Pail

There was once a milkmaid named Swati.

She milked her cow and carried the two pails of milk she fetched on a stick and set out to sell the milk at the market. As she was walking to the market, she began to daydream about what she would do with the money she got for the milk.

She thought of buying a hen and selling its eggs and she planned on becoming wealthy. She dreamt of buying sweets, a basket of flowers, a fancy dress, and even a new house with the money she would make selling the milk!

In her excitement, she forgot about the pails she was carrying and began to skip. When she reached the market, she realized that the milk was spilling down and when she checked her pails, they were empty.

Moral of the story : Don’t count your chickens before they hatch!
