Once upon a time, there was a river in the middle of the forest. There lived an old Crocodile in that river. The Crocodile was very weak and old, because of that he was not able to hunt anymore for his daily livelihood. One day, he was very hungry. Anyhow, he managed to come to the bank of the river and felt that it was very difficult to hunt even on land now. Then he came and sat under a tree to look for something to eat.
There was a monkey sitting on the branch of a tree. He said to the Crocodile; why are you so sad? Take some apples, they are very tasty. The monkey threw some apples down from the tree to the Crocodile. Crocodile said; thank-you dear monkey, can you please give me these apples every day. The monkey replied; Okay Crocodile. And the monkey gave some apples every day to the Crocodile, and he ate them every day.
One day, the Crocodile thought of eating the monkey’s heart. So he thought of an idea. Again he came back to the tree and said to the monkey, that one of my friend wants to meet you. The monkey was very happy and said, yes I will be very glad to meet him. He sat on the Crocodile’s back, but when they were in the center of the river. He told the monkey that I want to eat your heart and this is the best place to eat.
The monkey thought of an idea and said to the Crocodile, ‘but I forgot my heart on the tree. So the Crocodile said, go and bring your heart and give it to me. The monkey said, what a foolish Crocodile you are. How can you take someone’s heart from the body? And I gave you so many sweet apples but now I will never give you those apples. You are not my friend. You cheated with me. That day Crocodile was very hungry but he didn’t get apples to eat, so he realized his mistake.
The moral of the story is that One should think thoroughly twice before taking any action. And you should never cheat or play with someone who helped you in your difficult times.moralofstory
