Think before you act ( Moral story )

 Moral Story
Once upon a time there were four friends.Three of them were experts in different fields of knowledge and were very proud of themselves. The fourth one was not an expert like his friends but 
he was a very intelligent man.

One day the four friends went to the woods for some reason , as they were walking in the forest they saw the bones of an animal.
One of the friends said "I can join these bone by chanting a mantra,
 I am expert in this work ."He chanted the mantra and the bones were joined together and formed a skeleton of a lion.
Now the second friend said I will recite a mantra which will cover the skeleton with flesh and skin. He did what he said , soon there was a dead lion present in front of the eyes of four friends .How could the third friend stay behind ?He said proudly "I can make this lion alive ". The fourth friend who was standing quietly when the whole drama was taking place said, "Don't even think of doing that if the lion comes back to life he will kill us ". "No I will recite the mantra and make the lion alive,I  want to show my skill too.''
 ''Yes you should do that,'' the other two friends favored him too.    The fourth friend tried so hard to convince his friends but they  
said,  "You are such a foolish person when the lion will get his life back he will be thankful to us for bringing him back to life ". Disappointed Fourth friend climbed up a tree. 

Third friend started chanting the mantra and the lion became alive, he killed all the three men and ate them up.He walked away after    eating them. Fourth friend felt so sorry for his friends but what could he do ? It was all his friends' fault, they made a huge mistake and lost their lives.
