Both of them were very good friends too . Many years passed by and now teacher decided to take the test of the children . All the children did well in the test specially the two favorites of him . The teacher found both of them equally good and they got equal marks too , he was very happy but he wanted to know that whether both students had put there knowledge into practice.
After meeting the first student he called the second one and asked the same question to him . The boy said " Guruji I have gained my knowledge by understanding it, but my friend has achieved it by rote. He is just like a"CAMEL"."Oh , never mind. Experience will teach him every thing ," teacher repeated the same words and asked him to leave.
The teacher said" you called each other an ox and camel so here is your food , grass for the ox and leaves for the camel".' Please have it'.
