The Two Daughters

Once a man had two daughters. The first one was married to a farmer and the second one married a potter.

One day, the father visited the first daughter and asked her if everything was well with her. The daughter nodded and replied, “We grow a lot of grains and vegetables in our field. Every night I pray to God that it rains so that our crops can have enough water. She said,”Father, please pray for rains.”

Then the father went to the second daughter and asked her if everything was fine. The second daughter happily answered, “We make pots with clay and then keep them for drying in the sun. Every night I pray to God that it does not rain because if it rains our pots would be spoilt. Father, please pray that it does not rain.”

The old man didn’t know what to pray for.
