Sharmila Vijaywargi: The Best Gift

Once upon a time, there was a teacher in a little village school. Like all teachers, she too loved her students very much. She wanted them to become wonderful children. On the occasion of their teachers' birthday, every child planned to give her little gift.

One student gave her a handkerchief, another gave her a bag. Yet another gave her a book. Robert, the brightest child in the class who was very poor, had nothing to give to his teacher.

The teacher noticed the sad look on Robert's face. She told the whole class “Children thank you for all the gifts. I like each one of you. Do you know who has given me the best gift? It is Robert. All children looked at her surprisingly.

The teacher then said, "Do you know what he has given me? He always listens to everything which I say, does his work neatly and helps his friends. This is the best gift any child can give to a teacher. He is a wonderful child." Every one clapped for Robert. It made him very happy.

He always listens to everything which I say, does his work neatly and helps his friends. This is the best gift any child can give to a teacher.
