The Miser

Baba once told me a joke. In a town there lived a very miserly couple. They never donated any food, clothes or money to the needy. They were very wealthy, but they moaned and groaned that they hardly had any money.

They used to spend hardly any money even for their food and other essentials. One day the husband appeared extremely depressed. His wife asked him, "What happened? Did you spend any money? Did you lose anything? Did you lose your money in any manner?"

The husband replied in a sorrowful voice, "Today when I was downtown, I saw a person giving some money to a beggar."

The miser had never given anything to anybody. While seeing somebody else giving a donation to a poor person, he became so depressed!
