One Day Laxmi comes into his dreams and said-now I have make every thing to you. But now I want to go ahead from you. So what do want to take said. He prays to Laxmi, now I dont ask to you, in morning I disscussed with my family and says tommorow. So you Please ,placed in my home for tommorow only.
Laxmi escapes his prayes and in the morning the man told all story to his all family members. All the members says to be ask for all different ways, anyone says that ask jewell, ask building others says. But man's elder's sons wife is very clever, She says-Father , if Laxmi want to gone from our house. so why other things of his like jewell and land still why.
