Suddenly, It began to rain heavily. The wheel of the cart got stuck in the soft wet mud. The cart could not remove.

Arbind was very upset. He was scared because it was getting dark. He began to wail, “oh, dear! What shall I do?”

Who helps me? Please, God, comes and help me.”

He shouted many times for help, but he did not make an effort to push the wheel out from the mud.

After some time, a stranger came to him. The stranger said, ” why do you cry? God will not help you if you cry and do nothing.”

The farmer said,”My friend, I do not know what to do.”

The stranger said,”Come on; let us push the wheel.”
