The Advertising writer thought for a while and soon she got an idea. She took out her thick marker pen from her pocket, turned the cardboard sheet from back to front and rewrote the sign board. She put some money in the tin cup and went on her way.

In no time, people began putting money into the tin cup. After a while, the old man realized that his tin cup was filling very fast. When the tin cup was overflowing, the blind man asked a stranger, “Can you read this sign board for me?” The stranger was a good man and so he agreed to read it. The stranger read, “It says, ‘IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY, YOU CAN SEE IT! I CANNOT!'” You may also like to read, The Blind Man With A Lamp.
