Once upon a time, a blind girl hated the world because
she could not see it. She only loved a boy who cared for her.
One day the boy told her, “I want to marry you.”
The girl said, “You will not love a blind wife.”
“No, I will,” replied the boy.
“No, you won’t,” asserted the blind girl.
The boy thought for a moment and said, “Would you
marry me if I were blind and you were not?”
The blind girl said, “Yes, because I love you.”
“I also love you even if you are blind. So let us marry,”
argued the boy.
“No, you will get tired of a blind wife,” replied the girl.
Time passed and then one day, the boy suggested the girl
to have an eye operation, as someone had donated a pair of
eyes. She was excited at the prospect and said, “When I will
be able to see, I will marry you.”
The boy arranged for the operation and it was a success.
Now the blind girl was no longer blind. She desperately
wanted to see the boy and marry him.
When the boy came in front of her, she was shocked to
see that the boy was blind! In spite of all her love for the
boy, she simply failed to become the wife of a blind person.
The boy turned around to go and said, “Enjoy seeing the
world with my eyes.”
