Ghar ki murgi daal baraabar

Sometimes we don't realize the importance of things unless we lose it. The moment we know that it now belongs to someone else, suddenly we realize how important it was. The famous Hindi saying of 'Ghar kee murgi daal baraabar' can also be framed as: 'The moment we realize that chicken is no longer ours, we know that it was indeed a chicken (and not a daal !)'
Moral: Realize that its your murgi before it runs away :)
