Two Goats

two goats.JPG

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.

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.

One day, a cruel lion got caught in a hunter’s trap. Hunter pulled the lion into the cage and went for some work. Lion tried hard to escape but he couldn’t get out from the cage.

At that time, lion saw one man passing by. Lion asked the man for help, but the man refused. Man said I can’t trust you Lion; you can eat me, if I release you from the cage.

Lion started crying and said, “You can trust me, I promise that I will not eat you; I will be very loyal to you.”

At last Lion convinced the man, and then man opened the cage door for lion.

Lion roared loudly and turned towards the man to eat.

Man reminds lion about the promise. But lion forgot his promise, he told man that “he is very hungry and he eats animals, so he will eat the man now. “

Man told Lion that before you eat me, let’s take advice from a judge.

At that time, a jackal was passing by, Man asked the jackal to be their judge, and then he narrated the whole incident to the jackal.

Jackal listened to both very carefully, then he said,” I don’t actually understand the situation “, can you repeat the whole act in front of me”.

Like this, I was inside the cage, “Lion told jackal, and he went inside the cage “. Man quickly locked the cage door from outside.

Now lion was again inside the cage.

Man thanked the jackal for his help. Jackal warned the man “to always think before his actions”.
