Two Thieves Story – Tenali Raman Stories in English | Moral Stories for Kids by Mocomi


One summer night, when Tenali Raman and his
wife were about to sleep, he heard a rustling sound of leaves coming from outside. There was not even a slightest breeze blowing
at the time, so he presumed that there were some thieves hiding in the bushes. He figured that they must be planning to rob
his house in the night. He thought of a plan and said to his wife,
“My dear, I have heard that some notorious thieves are on the loose in our neighborhood. So, let’s hide all the jewellery and money
that we have in the well. A little later, Tenali Raman and his wife
came out of the house carrying a big trunk, and dropped it into the well. Then they went back inside the house, and
pretended to be asleep. The thieves waited for a while and then started
drawing water from the well. They hoped to empty the well and get the treasure. The thieves kept drawing out water the entire
night. Towards daybreak, they managed to pull out
the trunk, and when they opened it, they were extremely shocked and disappointed to see
only some big stones in it. They understood that it was Tenali Raman’s
plan to outsmart them. Just then, Tenali Raman came out of his house
and said, “Thank you friends, for watering my plants. I must pay you for your labour.” Hearing this, the thieves fell at Tenali’s
feet for forgiveness. They promised not to steal or rob anyone ever
again. Tenali decides to let them go.
