What is Greed?

A little boy asked his father, “What is Greed?” The father said, “In order to answer your question, we should go through the chocolate factory and there you need to pick one chocolate you like the most. But there is a rule. As you pass through the factory, you cannot turn back. You must pick the chocolate as you go forward only.”

The little boy and his father went to the chocolate factory. His father stood outside the factory and asked to go by himself. As the boy walked through, he saw the one big chocolate wrapped nicely, he instantly liked it but he wondered that he may find much bigger one further. So, He walked further, then he saw another chocolate. But again, he thought the same. When he started to reach near the end of the factory, he couldn’t see any chocolates as big as the one he didn’t pick earlier and started to regret his decision of letting it go.

Finally, he gave up. He went back to the father who was standing outside the chocolate factory with an empty hand and gave an explanation of what he did.
