(…….) One day, a wolf was walking in the countryside. He found a sheep-skin which was spread on the
ground. He thought, “If I wear this skin and get mixed up in the flock, the shepherd will not suspect me. At night, I will kill a sheep and then, take him away with me”.
Therefore, the wolf covered himself with the sheep-skin and got mixed up with a flock of sheep.
As he had expected, the shepherd took him as a sheep and shut him also in the pen. The wolf was waiting for the night.
Unexpectedly, the shepherd had a feast that night. He sent a servant to fetch a fat sheep. The servant saw the sheep-skin covered wolf by chance. That night, the guests had the wolf for supper.
He ended up as the victim while expecting to be the slayer.
One day, a wood cutter’s axe accidentally fell into a river. The poor wood cutter looked for it everywhere in the water but his efforts were in vain. Finally, he burst into tears. Hearing his sobs, an Angel appeared before him. She asked what happened and he told the story that he couldn’t get by without it and how he couldn’t find his axe.
The Angel dived into the river and came up carrying a golden axe. The wood cutter did not accept it. He stated that his axe was made of iron. The Angel was surprised but disappeared again and soon returned with a silver axe. The wood cutter again denied that it was his axe. The Angel once again plunged into the river. She soon reappeared carrying the axe of the wood cutter. The poor man greeted the angel with words of profuse thanks and great joy.
The Angel was impressed by the man’s honesty. In the end, she happily presented him with the golden and silver axes in recognition of his truthful nature.
(…….) A woman had a pet mongoose. It was very faithful. One day, she went to the market, leaving
her baby in the care of the mongoose. At that time, a big cobra entered the house. The mongoose killed it after a long and fierce fight.
When the woman came back she saw the mongoose lying at the entrance. She noticed its blood- covered mouth. In her haste, the woman thought that the mongoose had killed her baby. In a moment of sudden fury, the woman threw the water pot on the mongoose and killed it.
Alas! When she entered the house she was filled with remorse. Her baby was playing cheerfully. Nearby, a big cobra lay dead. The woman shed tears of grief patting the corpse of the mongoose. She made a huge mistake!
