Story of a honest man...

news published by Manorama Online | Malayalam News | Kerala |
Peter and Murugan

This is a story which happened in real life. Peter is a news paper vendor who also sells Kerala State Lottery in the foot path near Woodlands Junction, M.G.Road, Cochin. His honesty and humane nature came to the notice of everybody when he refused to have any temptation towards money. He has a regular customer, Murugan, who is a poor Tamil man who does the job of pressing cloths. Every morning Murugan used to select lotteries which he desire to have but pays for it and take home the lotteries only in the evening when he gets money for his work. On Friday also he did the same. Peter, the lottery sales man, came to know that the lottery which was selected by Murugan got 40 Lakh rupees and a car as first prize. Peter immediately called Murugan and handed over the lottery for which Murugan has not yet paid for. We should remember that Murugan never has any right for the lottery until he pays for it. This act is very rare anywhere in the world and 40 Lakhs is a very huge amount. Peter deserves all the blessings and prayers if not other kind of gifts for his sincerity...

My husband purchases news paper from Peter every week while he goes for a walk after sending my son for his music class...

Peter, remarkably honest and Murugan, the luckiest and innocent man.... probably these two combination and situation created specially for them by the uncertain time factor. Both of them showed to the world "the gap between the honest and self-centered highly sophisticated educated professionalist's".

Dearest Jyothisethu,

That is a heart warming story! The world should hear more of those and it shows that honesty and high morals still do exist! It speaks volumes for Peter. May God bless both of them and all that will be touched by Peter's goodness.
Love to you,

Wonderful story. I hope that |Murugan shared a little of his good fortune with Peter to reward him for his honesty, although in some ways honesty and goodness are their own reward.
