inspirational story by
A boy went to the pet store to buy a puppy,four of them sitting together priced Rs 5000 each.Then there was one sitting alone in a corner. The boy asked if that was from same litter,if it was for sale and why he was sitting alone.

The store owner replied it was from the same litter,it was deformed and not for sale.

The boy asked what the deformity was.The store owner replied the puppy was born without a hip socket and had a leg missing.

The boy asked if he could play with the puppy.the store owner said “sure”.

The boy picked the puppy up and the puppy licked him on the ears.Instantly the boy decided that was the puppy he wanted to buy.

The store owner said “That was not for sale”.The boy insisted and
the store owner agreed.The boy pulled out Rs 200 from his pocket and ran to get Rs 4800 from his mom. As he reached the door the shop owner shouted at him ” I don’t understand why you would pay full money for this one when you could buy a good one for the same price” ?

The boy didn’t say a word he just lifted his left leg trouser and he was wearing a brace.The store owner with tears in his eyes said ” I understand, go ahead, take this one”. This is EMPATHY.
