He cried a lot and left the house. He sat near a bus stop.
He wondered when he would get the expensive pair. Just then a beggar passed by on his crutches. The boy was shocked to find that the beggar had no legs. He got enlightened. At least he had legs. He thanked god for giving him legs and mother and father who were so caring.
