Are you really a human being?

Once upon a time a queen willed that after her death following lines be inscribed on her gravestone, “An enormous fortune is buried under this grave. A person who is really poor and helpless may dig up this grave and take it.” Thousands of poor and needy persons passed by that grave but no one was so heartless that he would dig up the grave of a dead person for wealth. One very old beggar was also living nearby that grave for many years. He used to point to the passers-by towards that inscription on the grave.
Ultimately a person of insatiable hunger for pelf did arrive at the grave and got it dug up. He was none other than the mighty king who had just conquered the kingdom in which that grave was located. But he didn’t get anything inside except one stone on which it was inscribed, “Ask yourself; are you really a human being? Certainly a person disturbing the dead in the grave for the sake of money can never be a human being.”
When the disappointed king was returning from the dug-up grave, people saw that the old beggar living nearby was laughing hilariously and saying, “I had been waiting for many years; at last I could see the poorest of the poor on this earth”.
Indeed, no one can be poorer and helpless than a heartless person bereft of compassion – who is always busy in search of material wealth. One day the same amassed wealth would ask him the question - Are you a human?
