WE SHOULD NOT BE GREEDY (Moral Story)

                                  
Once there was an elephant who lived in a jungle.He was very strong and powerful. He never harmed any of the animals of that jungle. All the animals loved him so much. The elephant was living a happy and peaceful life there.
One day a wolf  who lived in another jungle came there and saw the 
Elephant. "Ah! what a big and healthy elephant, I should make a good plan to catch him .It will be a big feast for me and my friends ,we can feed on him for many days", he thought.
 He told his friends about the elephant and they made a plan. 



  Next day the wolf with his other friends went to the elephant's  place and said to him " Oh, the powerful elephant, it does not suit  you to be the king of this small jungle.You deserve to rule over a  bigger forest like ours.Please come with us,a much more beautiful  life is waiting for you".
 The elephant who was unaware of the cruel plan of the wolves, agreed to do that.The wolves took him to the way where there was a big swamp, elephant slipped in to the swamp and died. The cunning wolves sang and danced.  
 Moral of the story- We should not be greedy                                                                                                             Panchtantra story                                                                                    Retold by -Aunt Mary

    1. Hi Od Liam,
      Yes! We live in a mean world. But! It doesn't mean that all of them are mean, good people are still there and we should not stop trusting people but we should trust them wisely and should take our time. :)
      It's sad that you had to face that kind of people.
      Thank YOU for such sweet words, kind visit and read :)
