A boat was swimming in the water. Suddenly there was cloud in the sky and there was heavy rain. Air-raging made the hurricane terrible. The passengers began to panic and the sailor got scared. Sailor started working diligently to bring the boat to the coast. He continued to cultivate the boat with his strong hands until he was completely tired. But how can he leave the boat even when tired? He also got his tired body to cross the yacht.

Gradually the water started filling in the vessel and even after trying to remove the water by the passengers, it also filled the water. The boat gradually started to be heavy, but the navigator kept up courageously. In the end it was surrounded by despair. Now the coast was quite far and the boat started drowning in water. The sailor threw the hull with his hand, and sat down holding his head. In a few moments, the opportunity was sunk. All passenger souls were defeated. The councilors of Yamraj came and took the sailor to the door of hell. Sailor asked, “Please tell me my crime, why are I being dragged to hell?”

Councilors replied, “Sailor, you have felt the sin of dipping the passengers of the opportunity.”

The sailor said in astonishing manner, “This is not a justice, I have tried my best to save the passengers.”

The councilors replied, “It is fine that you worked hard, but you had left the boats in the end, your duty was to keep the yacht till the last house.” The responsibility of the passengers of the yacht was upon you. Is blamed. ” □
