The Broken Pot
There lived in certain place a Brahman, whose name was Syabhayakripana, which means “a born miser.” He had collected a quantity of rice by begging, and after having dined off it, he filled a pot with what was left over.
He hung the pot on a peg on the wall, place his couch beneath, and looking intently at it all the night, he thought, “Ah, the pot is indeed brimful of rice.
Now, if there should be a famine, I should certainly make a hundred rupees by it. With this I shall buy a couple of goats. They will have young ones every six months, and thus I shall have a whole herd of goats.
When the mares have foaled, I shall have plenty of horses; and when I sell them, I will buy plenty of gold.
With that gold I shall get a house with four wings. And then a Brahman will come to my house, and will give me his beautiful daughter, with a large dowry. She will have a son, and I shall call him Somasarman.
He will come too near the horse’s hoof, and full of anger, I shall call to my wife, “Take the baby; take him!” but she distracted by some domestic work, does not hear me. Then I get up and give her such a kick with my foot.
Therefore, I say “he who makes foolish plans for the future will be white all over, like the father of Somasarman”.
