A greedy Dog

Once upon a time, there lived a dog, he was a greedy dog.
One day he was looking for some food. So he was sniffing all over the places.

Suddenly he smelled something good near a house. It was a butcher man’s house.

The dog mouth watered, he could not control himself and he went inside the house.

The butcher man was good enough and he gave a big bone to the dog. The Dog was very happy to have the bone.

But before he takes a bite, he thought to himself “if somebody sees me here with this bone then I will have to share this bone with them, I should go and eat this bone at some quiet place “.

So he began searching some quiet place. He saw a shade at the other end of the bridge built on a river.

Holding the bone in his mouth, he ran towards the bridge.

While crossing the bridge, he saw his own reflection in the river water. The foolish dog thought that some other dog is carrying the bone in his mouth like him.

As he was very greedy, he thought to himself, “It would be great, if I get the other bone, then I will be the luckiest dog”.

And then he barked on his reflection “woof! Woof! ““Splash and his bone fell down in the river”.

Dog realised that it was his own reflection that was carrying the bone. Because of his greediness, dog lost his own bone.

He cried and then he promised to himself that he will not be greedy anymore and will be satisfied with whatever things he has.

One day a goat was crossing a bridge built over a river. The bridge was very narrow and at a time only one person / animal could walk on it.

When the goat was at the half way of the bridge, she saw another goat was coming from the opposite side of the bridge.

The first goat asked the second goat to go back and give place to cross the bridge. The second goat also asked the same to the first goat.

Both the goats were adamant, and were not ready to go back and give place to each other.

They quarrelled for some time, and then they started fighting with their horn. And at last they both fell down from the bridge and drowned into the river.

 

Later that day, one more goat was crossing the same bridge, when she was at half way of the bridge; she found another goat was coming from opposite side of the bridge.

At first both the goats asked each other to go back and give place to the other to cross the bridge. But none of them agreed.

The first goat thought for a moment and said “let us try some other way, I will lie down on the bridge and you can safely walk over me and can go to the other side”. The second goat agreed to the first goat.

When the first goat lay down on the bridge, the second goat quickly walked over the first goat and went towards the other side of the bridge. Then the first goat got up and went to the opposite end of the bridge. And by this way they both crossed the river safely.

Four Friends and a Lion

four friends and a lion.png

Once upon a time, there were four friends. They were studying in a Gurukul (college).

Out of four, one of their friends didn’t score well in his exams. Sometimes the three intelligent friends made fun of the fourth friend for his fewer score.

After completing their college, the three intelligent friends thought to show their knowledge to the outside world. So they packed their things and set out. They included the fourth friend, on his request.

The three friends were discussing their skills while crossing the forest.

The first friend saw some bones under a tree, he told his friends that he can turn these broken bones into a skeleton and then he chanted and convert those bones to a skeleton. The bones belonged to a lion.

When the second friend saw the skeleton, he told the other friends that I can fill the flesh and blood in this skeleton, and then he chanted and filled that lion skeleton with flesh and blood.

This time the third friend thought to show off his knowledge. He said I can give life to this lion body.

The fourth friend, who was observing this from a distance, got shocked to hear their conversation. He interrupted the other three friends and said it’s not a good idea to give life to a wild creature. If he will get alive then he won’t spare any of us.

The three intelligent friends mocked at the fourth and they said “You are jealous of us, because you don’t know anything “. We are the creator of this lion. So how can he harm us?

The fourth friend pleaded the three friends to not use their knowledge in giving life to a lion, but the three friends did not listen, instead they asked the fourth friend to leave.

The fourth friend quickly climbed to a very tall tree, and then the third friend recited chant. Next moment a giant lion was in front of them.

The lion was very hungry and he roared and attacked on three friends.

The lion killed all the three friends, but the fourth friend was alive because of his common sense.
