Commotion

"At midnight Hodja heard a lot of commotion outside his window. He wrapped his blanket around himself and went outside to see what was happening. He saw two men fighting and tried to break it up.
Without answering, one of them ripped the blanket off him, and both of them quickly ran away. So poor Hodja walked back into his house anked and reutrned to his bed."What was all the fighting about?" asked his wife."It was over our blanket.
Now that they have got it, they have stopped fighting." (source:internet)

  1. How truly the need of a human being has been defined in this post. They fought over a thing first(because of the want of it) and were tempted to steal a thing later on - the two results of poverty.
