There was a great poet in Tamil whose name is Kamban(he only wrote the Ramayanam in Tamil)Initially he was on the middle class side and later he patronized by King Kulothunga Cholan well and he lived in a rich level but with humble nature. Once a Minister from the Kingdom went to his house to see him but on finding kambar went outside,he was waiting on the reception at that time some bags of paddy was taken inside from the cart. After some time, Kambar came in and as he found some grains of paddy found scattered on the ground he started to pick them up. On seeing this work,the waiting minister mocked at him as a great rich man picking up grains from the ground. without saying anything to him but with smile, the poet called the minister inside and asked him to have the lunch with him. when both of them sat before the leaf the minister's leaf was served with gold coins, silver bars and ornaments and Kambar's leaf served with meals. Puzzling minister asked the reason for such serving, the poet calmly replied,'sir,you mocked at me for picking up the grains from the floor and if I am not doing like this I have to eat like this as I do not have any grains to eat though I possess a huge wealth.' The Minister got felt ashamed.
