Robin goes to school daily. He likes doing things differently and does every piece of mischief all alone. His thoughts keeps wandering with how why when and so on. Teachers and neighbors keep complaining about Robin but everyone knew that the deeds he do are all because of something or for some reason behind. Behind all complaints he would end up with a statement giving answer for everyone troubled. He make sure that all still have the love they had in them for him since before it. It was the mid of the week. He felt bored of classrooms. He looked out through the window.  He saw men at work in his school ground. They were busy lifting bricks, cement packets, metal rods, with many tools..some with gloves and some without.  Soon he noticed a ladder near the corridor for the workersto climb up. It led him to the idea that of he could escape from everyone'ssight he could manage to get down the ladder that ends at the back door of the school. He managed to jump out of the school. He soon took the bus that just stopped by and took ticket to the last stop which was a very famous church. Many thoughts passed through his mind.  He soon checked the time. It was already 3 pm. Robin was sure he will not return home before his school bus reach not and was sure about the cane waiting for him at home. Even though a bit trembled he never took his step back. He decided to visit the church. As the bus stop ed he got down and walked to the church. Before entering he noticed many on the sides of the road with stretching hands and spread towels. Many visitors throw coins for them. Robin got confused about what will they do with the coins. He again moved towards the church door. He was astonished by the beauty of the church. He knew that his parents regularly visit the church and his dad make sure that he pays a good amount there. Robin prayed and was about to return home even though he was trembled about the situation home. He asked a person with stretched hands "why do you stretch hands and get coins from them". He replied that he was a construction workers and one day he had a fall from heights which broke his bones and made him good for nothing.  He added that he doesn't have any other way other than begging for his food. Everyone here has a similar story behind their life. Robin returned home. He  shared his experience with his dad and mom. They both consoled him but he was not happy.  He thought for days. The day came and it was his birthday.  His parents arranged for a part at home. Soon before his cake when everyone assembled he said " I don't need any gifts but everyone kindly pass over the money you have spentto the people near the church with spread towels and stretched hands. Everyone stood thought struck seeing the boy's kindheartedness. They all made it a point that since that month every family will spend a part of their earnings for the poor around them.
