Weekly Story


1.  A FOX AND A CROW


            Once a fox was very hungry and roaming around in search of food. Luckily, it saw a crow on a tree with a morsel in its beak. The fox wanted that bit of food very badly. So, it flattered the crow about its beauty and its lovely voice. The foolish crow believed what the fox said and started singing. The bit of food that it held in its beak fell to the ground and the fox ate it up.
The fox laughed and said, “I may have praised your voice, but I said nothing about your brain”.

The End..
 

2. BEGINNING SHOWS THE END


Blind people have a sense of touch that helps them see what they can't see with their eyes. Once there was a blind man who had a super-sense of touch. By and by the fame of his extra-keen sense of touch spread far and wide and one day reached the king's court as well. The king didn't believe it. He said that he would test it personally.
So, the blind man was summoned to the court for the test. He was given a seat and on the king's bidding, a wolf-cub was placed on his lap. The blind man caressed every part of the cub's body to know it's reality.
The king asked, "What is this baby-animal?"
Blind man replied, "Your Honour! It may be a wolf-cub or a fox-cub. But certainly, I can say that it won't be safe to trust it in a sheep-fold."
The king was highly pleased at the blind man's reply and rewarded him handsomely.
The End..
 

3. BELL THE CAT

At a grocer?s shop there were a mice everywhere. People didn?t want to come to his shop anymore.
So, the grocer kept a cat. She chased the mice and ate some each day. The mice had no chance to feed on anything more.
Troubled by the cat, mice held a meeting to get rid of the cruel animal as she killed them ruthlessly and their number was falling down. Each mouse suggested his idea but all ideas were rejected, as they were not practicable.
At last, a young mouse suggested to tie a bell round the cat?s neck when she was fast asleep so that when she would move, the bell shall ring and warn them of the danger. So, they will run to safety.
Everybody approved the idea but the question was- who will bell the cat?

All the mice looked at each other in despair and the meeting got over.
The End..


4. ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY


Once a watch-dog was sleeping in a farm-yard in the sun. Somehow a wolf got into the farm and attacked the sleeping dog. Taken aback, the dog begged for mercy.

He said, ?Sir! I am very thin and weak as I am new here. Let me get fat after feeding on rich food that I get here. Then you can come and eat me up.?

The wolf was taken by the dog?s words and went away leaving it free. The dog thanked his stars and decided not to sleep in an unsafe place.

After few days, the wolf re-visited the farm and looked for the dog. This time the dog was lying very safely on the roof of the stable. Seeing the dog, the wolf said, ?Hope you remember your commitment. So, come down and be my meat.?

The dog said, ?Who makes agreements for death? Get lost Mr., wolf.?

The wolf went away repenting over his folly.

The End..
