A rich merchant along with his friends went for a picnic. He arranged palanquins to the picnic spot After finishing lunch while relaxing he said Are you able to hear the gush of sea waves. There was no sea nearby and nobody heard any sound. But to appease the rich merchant his companions said it was pleasant to hear the sound. Then the rich merchant asked the palanquin carriers about the sound. An elderly and tired looking man said Sir it was the sound of hunger pangs we are hearing and I dare not say it is melodious. The merchant immediately realised his mistake of not offering any food to them and personally served them and fed them from hunger.
