Next day few students submitted the amount. Sam to seem to be disappointed the whole day. Being a smart child in the class he was not interacting in the class, not giving correct answers in the class. The teacher tried to find the reason for his disappointment, but he did not say anything and left for the day.
Next day the teacher told his friend Chetan to find out the reason for his disappointment. It was the last day to submit the amount for the trip. The teacher called out the names of the students who have not submitted the amount. When ma'am called out Sam's name, he got up from his place with the smile on his face and also the excitement which the teacher saw on the day when the trip was announced.
Next day the teacher asked Chetan what was the reason for his disappointment? Chetan replied there was a problem but it has been solved now.
The teacher asked what was the problem? Chetan explained the whole story that there was a major financial problem in Sam's family. So he was disappointed that he won't be able to join the trip. After this all the students in the class decided to help him out, they talked with their parents and they contributed to him.
