Waiting for the Rain

Velu the farmer never took a break from his work. This year, the rains did not come, leaving the lands barren. He felt unhappy about this until he chatted with an old lady, who made him realise that he was working the land too hard, and that he needed to give the land a break from the ceaseless year-round cultivation.
