There is only one happiness in this life,

to love and be loved.

Learning English through stories



A man married a beautiful girl. He loved her very much. One day she developed a skin disease and slowly her beauty starting fading.

It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour. While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. However, their married life continued as usual.

As the day passed, the wife’s beauty continued to fade more so. The blind husband did not know about this and reminded by her side. There was not much change in this married life. He continued to love her and she also loved him very much.

One day she died. Her death brought him great sorrow.

He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.

A friend came by and said, ” now how will you be able to walk all alone?? all these days your wife used to help you.”

He replied I am NOT BLIND. I was acting because if my wife knew I could see her beauty deteriorating, it would have caused her more pain than her disease. I pretended to be BLIND.

She was a very good wife. I wanted her to be happy…

Sometimes it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s shortcomings, in order to be happy.Fatima E Porcino
