Story 2: Bucket of Milk..!!
Once a in kingdom King decided to visit a village. After King’s visit was over, village head thought of an idea and called out all the villagers at the center and announced that he wanted to present something to King as gift.
He bought a big container and kept it at the center of the village. He called out all the villagers and told them about his idea of presenting a big container of milk to King as gift, so he told that each of them had to tip in a bucket of milk into the container.
After announcement each villager came with bucket full and emptied it into that large container. Next day when village head came to village center and said, “In order to celebrate King’s visit we all would have one big feast starting with a glass of milk for each villager from that large container which was filled by everyone.
Village head went ahead with a glass and started pouring milk from container into that glass. To his surprise liquid which he poured into glass was pure water instead of milk.
Village head looked at the people gather together. All people present there understood reason for this, they found that, “Everyone thought to themselves that the others would pour milk and so no one would notice if they added water instead of milk.”
Because of this at end no one poured milk and that large container was only filled with water.
