THE SPOILED BIRTHDAY
One day mother suddenly entered Ritu’s room. It was late in the night and Ritu was playing games on her laptop. Next day, it was her birthday and her mother had brought her a new dress as a surprise gift.
She wanted to leave it a near her head so that she might receive a pleasant surprise on waking the next morning. However, when mother entered the room she found it was absolutely messy and dirty. She had expected Ritu to be sleeping. When she saw her awake and playing she was highly disappointed. She scolded Ritu, but, Ritu did not pay heed to her words.
Next morning, Ritu did not behave well and nobody in the house spoke to her. The whole day passed like this and there was no happiness for Ritu. Only then Ritu realised that we should behave well and never ignore the advice of elders.
