In one village there is a poor small family. Father is working as a wood cutter cutting the trees and selling them to get money and maintain the family. He has only one axe. One day he went to cut the wood and he saw a tree near the river and he started to cut the tree down. The axe fell down into the river and the Father started crying. In the river there was an angel and the angel asked, “Why are you crying? The Father said, I have only one axe. I was cutting the tree and the axe fell in the river. The angel gave the man a golden axe. The man said, This axe is not me so the angel showed the Father a silver axe. The Father said, Yes, this axe is me and the angel liked this. So- the angel gave the Father two axes.
