Amar was only twelve years old at that time. He was bold, genius and good looking. However, he was very greedy and his temper was too high, that no one wished to be friends with him. He got angry regularly and said so many hurtful things to people.

Amar's parents were very anxious about his bad anger. His parents were tired of him and one day the father had a concept. He called Amar and gave him a hammer and a bag of nails. The father said, "Every time you get angry, take a nail and push into that old fence as hard as you can.”

The fence was very stiff and the hammer was bulky, nevertheless, Amar was so desperate that during the very first day he has assaulted 37 nails.

Another day, week after week, the number of nails was constantly decreasing. After some time Amar started to understand that holding his anger is easier than that pushing nails into the fence.

One day Amar didn‘t need hammer and nails any longer as he adapted himself to hold his anger entirely. So he came to his father and told about his success. His father said, "Now every time, when you hold your anger all day long, pull out one nail“.

After a long time, Amar could be proud of himself as all the nails were pulled out. When he came to his father and told about this, he offered to come and take a careful look at the fence. "You did a good work my son, but look carefully to the holes that left from the nails. The fence will never be the same as before. Same happens when you say hurtful things to people, as your words leave scars in their hearts like those holes in the fence. Always remember, we need to delight everyone with love and respect because it doesn‘t matter, that you feel or say you are sorry, the scars will not fade.

From that day, Amar became so wise and good at others. He remembers that how he improved his behavior and he always thanks his father for teaching him great things and making him a good man.
