O nce upon a time, in a small village nestled in the heart of the countryside, there lived a kind-hearted householder named John. One night, as he lay in bed, he heard the rustling of leaves and the whispering of voices outside. As he crept closer to investigate, he saw three figures moving stealthily among his fruit trees. His heart raced as he realized they were thieves, coming to steal from him and his fellow villagers.

John knew that if he shouted, the thieves would flee, but he was a peaceful man and didn't want to resort to violence. He also knew that he couldn't fight them alone. He observed them closely and realized that one of the thieves was his cousin, another was his neighbor, and the third was a stranger from a neighboring village. He knew that stealing from the village was wrong, but stealing from family and friends was a more complex matter.

As he thought, he remembered a wise old man in the village who had once told him that in any situation, it is important to think before acting. So, instead of raising an alarm and risking the thieves escaping, he decided to think of a plan. It was a great mind game indeed.

He approached the thieves and said, "Don't be worried; I will not call people. But the problem is that it's one hundred percent okay to take the property for my cousin and my neighbor, but it's wrong to come from abroad to steal from the village. "This is a violation of the village's sovereignty." The thieves were surprised by his words and didn't know what to do.

The householder continued, "So, I suggest that you two, my cousin and my neighbor, capture the outsider and tie him up." "In the morning, we'll hand him over to the authorities, and you two can go free." The thieves were hesitant at first, but the householder convinced them that it was the only way to avoid getting caught.

The thieves looked at each other, unsure of how to react. But the householder's words touched something deep within them, and they began to understand the error of their ways. The thieves, who were John's cousin and neighbor, felt ashamed and guilty. They decided to turn on the stranger, who was also a member of their team, and tied him up with a rope.

In this way, their unity was weakened because the second thief was eventually apprehended by the first, who was John's cousin.

The next day, when the sun had risen, the villagers awoke, and found the three thieves tied up and the householder standing beside them. The villagers were shocked and confused, but John explained the situation to them. The householder explained his plan and how he had used the thieves' relationships to capture them. The villagers were impressed and praised the householder for his wisdom and cleverness. He told them that stealing was wrong, and that it was also important to understand the circumstances behind his actions. He just divided the team and ruled over them.

The villagers were shocked and surprised, but they also felt a sense of relief and forgiveness. They knew that the householder had played a crucial role in bringing the thieves to justice and that he had shown them the importance of forgiveness and understanding. They knew that the village was a stronger and better place because of his actions.

The thieves were captured by people, and together they walked to the village square, where they confessed their crimes and returned the stolen goods. The villagers listened carefully, and, after some discussion, they decided that the stranger should be handed over to the authorities, while the other two should be given a chance to make amends.

Then the householder said either all or none. Then people gave them all a chance to amend themselves.

However, the three thieves were arrested by the police and taken to jail, but the householder was not punished despite his deception. He was respected and honored for his wisdom and compassion. From that day forward, he was known as the village's guardian, a protector, and a teacher of good values.

The moral of the story is that sometimes, in difficult situations, it is important to think before acting and to use the resources available to you to come up with a solution to strike a balance between conflict and peace. It also highlights the importance of taking responsibility for one's actions and the importance of community cooperation.
