रामदास एक ग्वाले का बेटा था। रोज सुबह वह अपनी गायों को चराने जंगल में ले जाता। हर गाय के गले में एकएक घंटी बँधी थी। जो गाय सबसे अधिक सुंदर थी उसके गले में घंटी भी अधिक कीमती बँधी थी। एक दिन एक अजनबी जंगल से गुजर रहा था। वह उस गाय को देखकर रामदास के पास आया, यह घंटी बड़ी प्यारी है क्या कीमत है इसकी ? बीस रुपये। रामदास ने उत्तर दिया। बस, सिर्फ बीस रुपये मैं तुम्हें इस घंटी के चालीस रुपये दे सकता हूँ। सुनकर रामदास प्रसन्न हो उठा। झट से उसने घंटी उतारकर उस अजनबी के हाथ में थमा दी और पैसे अपनी जेब में रख लिये। अब गाय के गले में कोई घंटी नहीं थी। घंटी की टुनक से उसे अन्दाजा हो जाया करता था। अतः अब इसका अन्दाजा लगाना रामदास के लिए मुश्किल हो गया कि गाय इस वक्त कहाँ चर रही है। जब चरतेचरते गाय दूर निकल आई तो अजनबी को मौका मिल गया। वह गाय को अपने साथ लेकर चल पड़ा। तभी रामदास ने उसे देखा। वह रोता हुआ घर पहुँचा और सारी घटना अपने पिता को सुनाई। उसने कहा, मुझे तनिक भी अनुमान नहीं था कि वह अजनबी मुझे घंटी के इतने अच्छे पैसे देकर ठग ले जाएगा। पिता ने, ठगी का सुख बड़ा खतरनाक होता है। पहले वह हमें प्रसन्नता देता है, फिर दुःख। अतः हमें पहले ही से उसका सुख नहीं उठाना चाहिए। लालच से कभी सुख नहीं मिलता।

English Translation

Ramadas was the son of a Gawale. Every morning he takes his cows to the forest to graze. There was a bell in every cow’s throat. The bell which was the most beautiful of the cow, the bell was more precious to her throat. One day a stranger was passing through the jungle. He came to Ramdas after seeing that cow, this bell is very dear, what is his price? Twenty rupees Ramdas replied. Just, twenty rupees, I can give you forty rupees of this bell. Ramadas was pleased to hear him He immediately took off the bell and handed it to the stranger and kept the money in his pocket. Now there was no bell in the neck of the cow. The bell tunak used to make him guess. So now it is difficult for Ramdas to decide what the cow is doing at this time. When Charitatra cow came out of the cave, stranger got a chance. He had to take the cow with him. Only then did Ramdas see him. He reached home crying and told the whole incident to his father. He said, I was not even convinced that the stranger would give me so much good money from the bell and will be swindled. Father, the happiness of the thug is very dangerous. First he gives us happiness, then sorrow. Therefore, we should not take pleasure from it already. Never get pleasure from greed.
