A Deal is a Deal – Story by Indu Varma
Feel inspired by this story.
Have you ever preached to your children about the importance of keeping a promise? This is a true story about keeping your word.
One weekend two of my grand children aged six and three were visiting. The three year old, Maala, did not want to sleep by herself, as she was afraid of the loud train noise. There are multiple trains that pass through the night in our town. The proximity of train station means that in the dead of the night the train whistle of the approaching train and rumbling noise of cars going on the track is loud enough to wake up the dead. Maala wanted her six-year-old brother, Sohun, to sleep next to her. The six-year old brother very wisely proposed, “OK, I will make you a deal. If you don’t cry when the train passes by at midnight, I will sleep on the same mattress.” She agreed.
Well, sure enough the loud sound of the train passing by at midnight woke up Maala, and she started crying. Sohun then said in a very calm and firm voice to his sister, “Maala, a deal is a deal. You said you won’t cry, so stop crying.” Maala immediately stopped crying. She said, ‘OK’ and went back to sleep.
What a great lesson! Once you give your word, you have only two choices choices, either keep your word or you lose your trust.
