Kindness and Compassion

This is one of the Short Stories my Grandfather used to often tell us. For some odd reason, I had forgotten about it. At a recent family get together when we missed his presence, every little memory of him came back to all of us. This is one of the many wonderful memories of him! 

Once upon a time, in a small village a saint shot to fame across the region for his beautiful white horse. The special thing about this horse was that he used to follow each and every instruction given - but only by the saint! It was too good to be true, so people from far distances started visiting him to see this wonder with their own eyes.

In no time, exciting narrations of the obedient horse reached the king of that region and out of curiosity he paid a visit to this saint's abode. The king fell in love at the very first sight. A selfish desire made him want the horse as his own possession. Expressing his desire of owning the horse, king offered the saint any price he wished for the same.

Taken aback…
