way was unable to cut its prey. At the moment a lion came there. The fox was
happy. Immediately the approached the lion said: “Oh king, I have kept one
elephant for you. Please come and eat.” “I don’t eat an animal killed by other.
If you are interested you may eat it” the lion said and ran away.
After a few minutes a
tiger appeared there. The fox approached him and spoke: “Sir, tiger sir, just
now the lion killed an elephant and asked me to wait till he comes this way. He
has decided to kill all the tiger of theforest.” The tiger frightened and ran

black cheetah appeared there. “Oh cheetah Please come. Please see here. The
lion who killed the elephant has asked me to wait. If you are hungry you may

It was an evening in
winter days. A group of monkey living near a hill were shivering. Few monkeys
collected black speed and tried to get heat by blowing air. But there exercise
was futile. A bird observed the difficulties faced by monkeys.
“Oh monkeys, Do you get
heat if black seeds are fed with air? You are all dull headed. Better go to a
cave or thicket where cold is less” the bird said. “You small bird? Can’t you
keep quiet? We are suffering here. You are talking as if you know better than
us. Get lost” an aged monkey said. The bird didn’t keep quiet. “Oh monkeys ….
It appears it may rain; clouds are gathering. Better quit the place. Otherwise
you suffer more” the bird advised.
Monkeys got angry. One
monkey jumped above the tree and cut the bird’s wings. The bird died…
There lived a farmer with his wife in a
village. They were living in a hut. They had a son. They were delighted by the
child and its play. It was a past time for them. One day the farmer went to
forest to bring fire wood. He bought a mongoose. The couple decided to look
after the mongoose. “Darling, the mongoose is young. In five or six months the
mongoose will grew big. Then it would be a friend to our child” the farmer
The farmer wife reared the mongoose. The
mongoose grew big in six months. Once the farmer’s wife had to go to market to
bring food articles. She left her child in the cradle. She told her husband to
look after the child and not to allow
mongoose and child together. She went out. The farmer told her not to worry as
the mongoose is a good animal. Few minutes passed. The farmer had no work. He
went out for a walk.
After two hours the farmer’ wife retuned home.
At the door step she saw the mongoose waiting for her. But she saw blood oozing out of its mouth. She
thought that the mongoose might have killed the child. Immediately she took the
stick and hit the mongoose. “You unfaithful, How dare you are to kill my
child?” she said. Then she went inside. There she found the child sleeping.
There was a snake on the ground cut into pieces. The blood was spread over. The
farmer’s wife realized that the mongoose has saved her child from the snake.
Suddenly she came out. The mongoose was dead.
“Sorry my dear mongoose, You have saved my
child from the bite of the snake. Without knowing the truth, I killed you. God
also will not excuse me” she said. She sat weeping loudly…
It was winter. Winter season. Meany animals were sleeping in the
forest. But few monkeys were jumping from tree to tree as they had no warm
house to live in. They were hungry also. They were shouting. They saw few worms
flying from one end to the other. While doing so they were spreading light. The
monkeys thought that it is fire.
“Let all of us go towards fire and warm up. The
cold is severe.” Monkeys spoke to each other. Nearby a bird was sitting in a
bush. Hearing what monkeys spoke the bird said: “Friends, It is not fire. They
are worms. The monkeys didn’t like what the bird said. “Who told you? Who asked
you to suggest? You are impertinent”. Thus the monkey said and killed the bird.
“Oh god, I did a big mistake. I should not have
to suggest these fools” thus the bird said and died…..
It was a denser forest. A lion
was living in the forest. He was the king of all animals. Everyday the lion was
killing animals for his food. Dissatisfied animals decided to send everyday one
animal in turn of king. The lion also agreed to it. As agreed the animals were
sending one animal to the cave. The lion used to eat it and be happy.
One day it was the turn of a hare. Purposely
the hare went late to the lion’s cave. “Why are you late?” the lion roared. The
hare with any fear said “O King, Actually I came running to see you early. But
on the way, I had to face another lion. He was about to kill me. Somehow I
escaped. This made to me come late. Kindly excuse me.” The lion got angry.
“What? Is there are more lion in this forest?
If it is so, you show me where it is, First I will kill him and then I shell
look after you” the lion roared.
The hare did not say no. “King, you come with
me. I will show you the other lion. It appears he is still stronger.” Thus said,
the hare took the lion with him. After he walked in the forest little distance
he showed the lion in a deep well.
“King, I told you there is one more lion. It is
living in this well. Peep and see” the hare said. The lion saw the well. Inside
he found his image. He though that is another lion. Soon he jumped into the
well in order to kill the same. But he died.
The intelligent hare ran away from there and
met all the animals. He boasted before them the way by which he made the lion
