Listen to the Story


There was a village in the countryside where people from different backgrounds and beliefs lived together. Among them was a man named Tom who had a strict and judgmental attitude towards those who didn't share his beliefs. One day, a new family moved into the village. They were from a different culture and followed different customs than the rest of the villagers. Tom didn't like their way of living and started to criticize them openly. One of Tom's close friends, Mary, noticed his behavior and tried to talk to him about it. She explained to him that everyone had the right to live their life the way they wanted, and it was not his place to judge them. Tom initially dismissed Mary's advice, but over time, he started to think about it. He realized that his judgmental attitude was causing harm to others.
