Once upon a time lived a farmer in the village. He had four sons. Farmer was very hard working and due to his hard work he was very rich. His sons used to sit idle all day doing nothing and never helped their father.

They always quarreled among themselves. The father was very much sad and worried. He tried his level best to mend their habits but all in vain. The farmer was growing old and he couldn’t work as hard as before. Once he fell very ill.

He called his sons. All of them reached there. He asked them to sit down and listen to him carefully.

The old father said, “My dear sons, I am weak and ill. I may die any moment. There is a lot of money hidden in our fields but I have forgotten where I had buried it. Dig that treasure out after my death.”

The farmer died after two days. The sons dug every inch of the tend but could not find anything.

As the field was well ploughed some old man advised them to sow wheat in that. They had a very good crop. By selling the wheat they got a lot of money. Now they understood what their father meant. It was really the hidden treasure. From that day they worked hard and lived a happy life.
