Once upon a time somewhere in Greece there was a king named Midas. He did something that pleased the gods very much. He was told that one of his wish will be granted. He asked the gods that Whatever he may touch should become gold. He was very happy . He touched stones ,they became gold. He touched trees they also got converted into gold. When he reached his palace he felt like eating. When he touched his food it changed into gold and he wasn't able to eat anything. Just then his daughter comes running towards him to hug him. Before he could think anything she comes in contact with him and becomes a gold statue. The king starts crying and prays to gods to take this power back and bring his daughter to normal. The god appears and tells him that greed is the greatest enemy of mankind. The story shows us that if we will run behind money then we will lose all our relations and our loved ones .
