Lion and a Fox

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful forest. Lots of animals like cow, elephant, zebra, monkey, lion, tiger, and jackal were living there. Due to some reasons their king died suddenly, so they all were looking for a suitable candidate as their king.

After a lot of discussion, animals decided to crown Lion as their king.

They also discussed that proper training should be provided to the lion, so that he will be able to take care of the forest.

Now the next search was to find a suitable trainer for the lion.

There lived an old but intelligent fox in that forest. Animals asked the fox, if she can provide training to the lion. The fox agreed to provide the training.

From that day onwards, fox started giving training to the lion. She taught several skills to the lion. She taught running, swimming, crossing, hunting, attacking and defending etc.

With each passing day, lion learned lots of skills from the fox.

As compared to the fox, lion was young and energetic, so his moves and attacks were sharper than the fox.

On the final day of the training, lion thought that “other animals consider this fox very intelligent, and now for my capabilities, they will give credit to the fox. I am very strong; if I kill this fox then I will be the only intelligent animal in this whole forest”. Lion roared and went near the fox.

Fox knew that lion is going to hurt her, so she quickly climbed up to a tall tree.

Lion tried to climb the tree, but he was unable to do that.

Lion realised that fox has not taught climbing to him. He said very politely “oh my dear teacher, I was checking if you have taught everything, but I found that, you didn’t teach How to climb tees“.

Fox replied that “Lion, I knew, one day you will come to destroy me to become a super power, that’s why I didn’t teach you my last stake, else I would not survive”.

Lion tried to convince the fox with his innocent talks, but fox was clever enough to save her own life.

Later Lion became the king of the jungle, but he knew everything except climbing trees, he realised his mistake, but it was too late.

Lord Shiva said Ok, and he granted the boon.

Bhasmasur was very happy; he wanted to test if his boon really works.

Lord Shiva got shocked to see Bhasmasur, but now he was unable to take his boon back. He ran towards Vaikuntha (Lord Vishnu Home) to get help from Lord Vishnu.

When Lord Vishnu saw Lord Shiva in a trouble, he came forward to help and turned to a beautiful lady ‘Mohini’ with his powers. He stood on Vaikuntha door and waited for Bhasmasur.

When Bhasmasur reached Vaikuntha in search of Lord Shiva, he found Mohini at the door, he got hypnotised by her beauty.

Bhasmasur was awestruck with Mohini’s beauty; he forgot Lord Shiva and he asked Mohini to Marry Him.

Mohini said “ok, but there is one condition”, if you dance just like me then I will marry you“. Bhasmasur agreed to the condition.

Mohini started to dance, she moved beautifully with different poses. As she was dancing, she put her right hand on her head.

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.

Harry and a Blue Whale

boy and a whale.JPG

Harry is a very naughty 10 years old boy. He is always after some mischievous deed.

Harry lives with his parent in a village near a sea. His daddy is a fisherman and his mumma takes care of home.

Every day Harry goes to a temple with his mother.  One day he took some deity idols and dropped them into the pool near the river, and started laughing.  Then he went to the temple’s kitchen and pours all the salt from the packet into the food.

That night when Harry slept, he had a strange dream. He saw that all the idols are very angry and saying that very soon Harry will become a monkey.

Harry got up in fear and noticed that a small tail is budding from his back. Harry got scared and started crying. He covered his tail inside his trousers.

Next morning, it was a rainy day; Harry’s father went to catch the fishes in the sea. Suddenly rain got heavier and a big storm hit the sea. His father along with his friends lost the route in the sea.

All the villagers were terrified. But no one has courage to go to the sea to search missing people.

Harry decided to search his father and missing people. His mother packed all the necessary things like food, fresh water in his backpack. Harry took a small boat to sail.

Harry had never seen this kind of storm. Heavy waves were hitting his small boat from all the sides. Harry got frightened, but he was determined to search his daddy. After lots of efforts and hard work, Harry reach to the middle of the sea, but he couldn’t see anyone.

Suddenly he saw a big wave was approaching towards him, when the wave came near, he found that it was a blue whale, but it was too late, the next moment Harry was inside the blue whale stomach.

Big wave was the water inside the blue whale mouth. Harry remembered; that his mother told him about the blue whale once; it’s the biggest animal on earth. But this was the first time when he saw her.

Blue whale swallowed Harry, his boat and thousands of small fishes. Inside the blue whale stomach, it was a different world. He saw lots of small sea animals were swimming there. He also found some broken parts of ships.

Harry Harry … looks here. Harry heard his name; he saw his daddy and friends. They were calling his name from a corner.

Harry swam towards his daddy, they both hugged each other. His daddy pulled Harry inside a corner.

His father said; blue whale swallowed all of us. We are not able to get out of this stomach. Whenever this whale opens her mouth; she swallows lots of water.

This stomach is so big and full of water, but this corner has less water, so we all are standing here holding each other hand.

Harry thought for a moment, and then he pulled out his tail from his trouser. By this time Harry got a very long bushy tail.

He told his father, how he got a tail on his back. He also said that now using this tail he will find a way out for everyone.

Harry asked everyone to be in a group and get ready with their boat. Then Harry sat on his boat and started tickling the whale with his tail. Initially whale started moving violently because of the tickle, but Harry keep on tickling in different part of whale’s stomach.

After lots of tickle, whale jumped high in to the sea for a sneeze. Whale’s sneeze was big enough to throw all the people from her stomach.

Harry with his daddy and friends sailed their boat very fast. They sailed till they reach the sea-shore.

Harry’s mother with other villagers was waiting at the shore. When they saw everyone safe, they run towards them.

Harry father told everyone how his little brave monkey helped them to escape a giant fish.

Villagers held Harry on their shoulder and started cheering.

That night when Harry slept, again he had a dream. But this time he saw that idols are very happy and saying “because of your bravery and helpful act, your tail will be removed from your body. “

When Harry got up next morning he found that his tail was gone.

He thanked god and promised to be a better person.
