Look Before You Leap


Once a fox was roaming in the dark. As ill luck would have it, he fell into a well. He tried his best to come out but all to no use. So, he had to remain there till the next morning.

At about fore-noon the next day, a goat came that way. She peeped into the well and saw the fox there.

“What are you doing there, Mr Fox ?” asked the goat.

“I came here to drink water. It is the best I have ever tasted. Come and see for yourself,” replied the sly fox.

Without thinking even a bit, the goat jumped into the well. She quenched her thirst and looked for a way to get out.

The fox said, “I’ve an idea. Stand on your hind legs. I’ll climb on your head and get out. Then I shall help you out too.” The silly goat did so and the fox got out of the well.

While walking away, he said, ” Had you been wise, you would never have got in without seeing how to get out.”

 Hehee…. I think you could find the moral values contained in this story with yourself 😉

Haste makes waste


Once there was a hunter. He lived in a village. He had a dog. It was very faithful. One day, the hunter went to the city with his wife. He left his son at hire. A wolf came there. It entered the house and attacked the baby. The dog fought with the wolf and killed it.

In the evening, the hunter and his wife returned from the city. The dog was waiting outside for its master. When it saw its master, he licked its feet. The hunter saw the stains of blood on the dog’s mouth.

He thought that the dog had killed his son. He became very angry. He took his gun and killed the dog. When he found his son safe inside the house and the wolf lying dead near him, he wept bitterly.

So, we can see that what we see is not necessarily what they seem.
