              在朋友之间帮助保存贵重物品也是常事,不过不能起贪婪之心。

        这个英文故事很有教育意义,文字比较容易,可用作中学英语阅

        材料。

 

                                                                  The Iron Box

 

         Mohan Das was the son of a rich businessman. When his father died, Mohan Das was left

with an iron box with valuables in it. One day, Mohan Das had to go to the city on some work. So,

he took the iron box and handed it over to his moneylender friend. His name was Ramasewak.

       “Please keep this box. My father gave it to me. I will return from city after few days and collect it

from you,” said Mohan Das to Ramasewak

    “You do not have to worry. I will keep this box safely,” said Ramasewak.

     Mohan Das started off his journey happily. He knew that his valuable iron box was safe with

Ramasewak. A few days later he returned. He went to his friend Ramasewak and asked for the

iron box. Ramasewak pretended to look a little surprised, “Oh, the iron box! The rats ate it up. I

just could not stop them,” he said.

      Mohan Das realized that his friend had become greedy and dishonest. Ramasewak was trying

to cheat him. Being an intelligent man, he kept quiet. “I must figure out a way to get my iron box

back from Ramasewak,” thought Mohan Das.

      Next day, Mohan Das went to and said, “Friend! Can you send your son with me? I need

someone to look after my property.”

      Ramasewak thought for a while. He brooded. “Mohan Das seems to be a fool. Maybe he will

reward my son for looking after his property,” thought Ramasewak. Then, immediately he agreed

and sent his son with Mohan Das. 

       Next morning, Mohan Das came running to Ramasewak and said, “Dear friend, a terrible thing

has happened. A hawk has carried your son away.”

       Ramasewak was furious and demanded, “How can a hawk carry off my son?”

      “In the same way as the rats can eat up the iron box,” answered Mohan Das

      “I am sorry, my friend. I realize my mistake,” Ramasewak said with a bit of concern in his voice.

He felt ashamed of having tried to cheat his friend. He gave the box back to his friend. Both of them

were happy and remained good friends forever.

 

译文

        默罕·达斯是一个富商的儿子。父亲去世时给他留下一个铁盒子,里面装有贵重物品。有一

天,默罕·达斯有事要去城里,于是他把铁盒子交给一个名叫拉美西瓦克的放债朋友。

     “请你帮我保存这个盒子,这是我父亲给我的。过几天从城市回来,我到你这里来拿。”

罕·达斯对拉美西瓦克说。

     “你不用担心,我会好好保存这个盒子的。”拉美西瓦克答道。

        默罕·达斯很高兴地开始了他的旅程,他知道铁盒放在拉美西瓦克那里会很安全。几天后,

回来去拉美西瓦克那里想要回铁盒子。拉美西瓦克装得有点惊讶地说:“哦,铁盒子! 老鼠把

了,我阻止不了它们。”

        默罕·达斯意识到他的朋友变得贪婪不诚实了,拉美西瓦克是想欺骗他。达斯是个聪明人,

当时没说什么,心想“我必须想方法从拉美西瓦克那里把铁盒子要回来。”

        第二天,达斯去见拉美西瓦克,对他说:“朋友! 你能让你儿子和我在一起吗? 我需要有人

看我的财产。”

        拉美西瓦克想了一会儿,心里窃喜。“看来达斯是一个大傻瓜。我的儿子帮他照看财产,

能会犒赏儿子的。”于是他立刻答应让儿子跟达斯去。

      第二天早晨,达斯跑到拉美西瓦克跟前说:“亲爱的朋友,发生了一个可怕的事情。一只老

把你儿子叼走了。”

      拉美西瓦克生愤怒极了,反问道:“老鹰怎么能叼走我的儿子?”

     “就像老鼠能吃铁盒子一样。”达斯回答说。

     “对不起,我的朋友。我意识到我错了。”拉美西瓦克有点胆怯地说。对欺骗他的朋友,他

到万分羞愧,他把铁盒子回给了朋友。他俩都很开心,从此以后,仍然一直是好朋友。
