Nasruddin was looking at the image of the moon in a well.
He thought it was a recompense to take out the moon from the well.
Therefore, he threw a rope inside the well and swung it a few times.
Incidentally, the tip of the rope got caught to a big stone. He tried to take the rope out. Hence he pulled it with a lot of force.
The rope tore off and he fell on his back to the ground.
When he looked at the sky, he saw the moon and said,
“Doesn’t matter. My efforts were not wasted. Though I faced a lot of difficulties, I finally succeeded to rescue the moon.”
