Now coming to the story of a husband who lost his wife in a swimming pool. This story is based on the above story of the woodcutter.
A husband and his wife went to swimming pool. There he lost his wife in the pool. He became very sad and started to cry. A fairy appeared in front of him and asked, "What happened? Why you are crying?"
"I lost my wife in the pool....", he replied.
The fairy disappeared in the pool and within few seconds returned with a young, beautiful Hollywood actress.
"Is this your wife?", the fairy asked to the husband.
"Yes, yes, she is my wife", the husband replied in hurry.
The fairy became angry. "She is not your wife. I was just testing your honesty", she said.
"Yes I knew that you were testing my honesty. But I knew the story of the honest woodcutter as well. If I say that this young lady is not my wife, you will bring another young and beautiful actress of Hollywood and ask, 'Is this your wife?' I will say No. Then you will bring another one, probably from Bollywood. Finally you will bring my real wife and I will say, 'yes, she is my wife'. In this condition, the problem is that you will reward me all the three actresses. To avoid living with four wives, I told that the first was wife of mine"
