Love and Co. Unlimited

Two brothers lived in a village. Both were poor and had to work hard to earn a living. Gopal the younger was lame and lived with the parents, while Shankar the elder lived in a separate hut nearby, with his family and
children. Shankar knew that his brother can’t work like any others and he feeds their parents too. Decided to help him in private, Shankar packed enough grocery for Gopal and used to leave at his house, every night.
Gopal was very happy to realize Lord Krishna coming to his house every night with a bag of grocery. He thought it to be a good chance to help Shanker, who has four little children to be brought up.
Before dawn, Gopal would pack half of what he got and used to walk to Shanker’s house to leave it there. This exchange continued for a few days and somehow the other villagers also came to know about this strange supply to Gopal and Shanker.
One day a few of them decided to investigate into this miracle and kept watch on both the houses. That night nothing special happened and all the villagers returned back just before dawn.
Quickly, both of them packed that day’s supply and walked out. On the way they met each other and both could understand what actually was happening. They hugged each other. Tears dropped drown from their eyes.
