Honesty is the Best Policy

Respected Teachers And My Dear Friends.
Today I’m going to speak about a very essential quality which we have to cultivate from a very young age. This is a real life story happened to Laila,

One  day coming home from work, Laila stopped at the corner Chicken Store to buy a chicken for supper. The butcher reached into a barrel grabbed the last chicken he had, flung it on the scales behind the counter, and told Leila its weight. She thought for a moment. "I really need a bit more chicken than that," she said.

"Do you have any larger ones?" Without a word, the butcher put the chicken back into the barrel, felt around as though finding another, pulled the same chicken out and placed it on the scales. “This chicken weighs one pound more,” he announced. Laila thought for sometime and then said , “Okay, I’ll take them both.” Just imagine the trouble  the butcher had fallen into? Do you think Laila will believe  the butcher again?........  Will Laila say to others too about this butcher?.........

So that is what I would like to say, Never say lies. Whether we are big or small, whatever wrong we have done will come out in the end. We will be in big trouble then.Now we are kids, this is the right time to learn to be honest, to be truthful.  I would like to say “Be truthful to ourself, then to others and most importantly in all our everyday dealings.”

So from today onwards make a policy to be Honest.
