Storyboard Text

  • I'm quite tired,but I know the harder I work,the more my family has,and that is the most important thing.
  • This is not your money! I do not believe you!
  • Your problem not mine.
  • Once there was a blacksmith who worked hard to provide for his family. Though sadly the trait seemed to skip a generation as he had a terribly lazy son. The blacksmith was near the end of his time and decided that he would not leave give any of his son's inheritance to him unless his son could work and earn a rupee before his death.
  • You dare try to deceive me agin!
  • The mother wanting to help her son, gave him a rupee and tells him to run a mile and come home in the evening so the father will believe he earned the rupee himself. When the son returns home and gives his father the rupee, his dad does not believe he has earned it and outraged, he throws in into the fire. The son does not care shrugs his shoulders and leaves.
  • This continues for three more days. Finally the boy realized he had to actually earn his own rupee. So for a week he did multiple mundane jobs around the town and little by little he earned the money he needed.
  • In memory of a loving father
  • The boy proudly presents the coins to his father, who again does not believe him and throws the coins into the fire. Horrified the boy jumps into the fire and retrieves the money with his hands
  • The father finally believed that he earned the rupee and says " As long as you work you will have money and contentment, and all things will be yours. But if you will not work, another person's money cannot help you, for someone else's rupee is not worth one anna."
  • The father dies peacefully knowing his son finally learned the true lesson of hard work
