- The school-going boy in this story is in fifth standard .He is an obedient and meritorious student from a well-to-do Muslim family . One day he goes to school with four rupees in his pocket in order to pay the school fee.
As the teacher -concerned is on leave that day , the boy spends all the four rupees in buying and eating jalebis . Actually the boy is not interested in the jalebis sold in the bazaar . But the coins in his pocket persuade and get him excited to buy and eat jalebis with the fee money . The coins suggest the boy that he could pay The fee with his scholarship money that is to be received the following day .
The next day in school he is asked to pay the fee and it is informed that the scholarship money would be given the following month . With this shocking news he feels confused and defeated . He is afraid of his class teacher and tries to escape from school without being noticed by anybody . He goes to the Railway station only to spend time till the evening .
Sitting under the tree the boy prays to God to send four rupees for him by His Farishta . He admitted his wrong and promises that he will not repeat the same again in future . But he receives nothing from God .
The next day also the boy comes to the same spot near the Railway station . The starts requesting God only for four rupees . He tries his best to prove before God that he is God – fearing , disciplined , hard working and obedient one . He goes on persuading God till the evening in vain . Then he decides to come to the same place the next day in order to observe Namaz to Allah Miyan very strictly after washing his body and changing clothes .
Meanwhile his parents get the news of his continuous absence in school . We can imagine what happens afterwards .But the boy , up to his class VIII , is not able to understand as to why God has not given him a single paisa . What loss He suffers from with the help of only four rupees to an innocent and devoted child like him .
When the boy gets his maturity he finally understands that if Allah Miyan were to provide all for the asking , then man would even today be living in nests like vultures and crows and would not have learnt the art of making jalebis .
This interesting story reveals us how an obedient boy is easily excited to do something wrong innocently . It also tells us to be responsible and kind enough towards small children .
The moral of the story is , “Look before you Leap “ .It means whatever we want to do in life we must be very careful about the future consequences . If our plans fail we will suffer a lot and sometimes our future may get spoiled if we are not careful and mindful of what we are doing and what we want to do .
One must be confident about ones success but one must not be over confident . When we knowingly or unknowingly commit a mistake or do wrong somewhere , our reputation may get damaged and we may suffer from a great loss . That is why one should look before he/ she leap . We must not count the chicks before they are hatched . And we should be aware of the fact that God helps those who help themselves
