Hard work illustration

Once two friends called Tom and Sam came to a city to earn money. They went to a rich merchant for a job. The merchant gave each of them a cane basket and pointing towards a well in his garden said, “Take these baskets and draw water from the well till dusk.”

Tom thought it foolish to draw water in a cane basket. So, he slept. On the other hand, Sam kept working. After few hours, when he drew the basket up, he saw some gold coins in the basket. He took them to the merchant who rewarded him and gave him a job too. Tom went away ashamed.
