Once upon the time, Nasreddin was very poor. He didn't have money to buy even same fruits. He knew that his neighbor had a rich garden of the fruit trees. But the garden was surrounded by a high concrete fence.
Nasredin climbed the fence and jumped into garden. He climbed up the most fruitful tree. He picked some fruits and put them into his bag. Suddenly someone said, “Hey, Sir ! What are doing up their? This my garden, don’t you know?”
Nasreddin was afraid and ashamed. He answered “A big cyclone swept me here, Sir. I don’t know what to do.” Then the man was smiling and saying, “I am sorry to hear that. But why did you pick my fruit?”. “When the cyclone swept me into the garden, I lost my balance and tried to hold something. And I could only reach the fruit” Nasredin answered. “Really?” the main said, “Then, why are they in your bag ?”
Nasreddin answered “Well that’s what I am thinking about now. Why are they in my bag?”. “Well, ... well don’t know you why. Ha ... ha ... perhaps the cyclone blew them into your bag. Now take out and dismiss!” said the owner of the garden. Feeling ashamed, Nasredin left the garden.
