The Fox And The Crane

One day in the forest of Chandrapuri, animals were having chat. At that time one Red fox came to the place. As soon as he came the animals stopped chatting. He asked them, "Why have you all stopped talking? May I also join with you?". In that group there was a crane. He was very wise and intelligent also. Everybody liked him very much.

The crane invited the Red fox to join the group for chatting. But some animals in that group did not like this because they knew that fox is a cunning animal.

So they slowly walked away from that place. .
After the day of the meeting the crane and the fox used to meet every evening under a tree. One day the fox invited the crane to his house for dinner. The crane accepted his invitation. The crane went to home and dressed neatly and went to fox's house.

The food was arranged neatly in a plate. As soon the crane saw this he told the fox, "Oh dear! I can't eat from a plate! He politely told the fox I am going home. Good bye". The crane was very sad that he has a cunning friend like the fox.

The next day evening as usual they met at the same place. The crane asked the fox, "How are you today?" The fox replied, "I am fine".

The crane invited the fox for a meal. The fox went to the crane's house. Crane gave him a warm welcome. "Come in, fox, my friend, Please sit down. The food will be ready within an hour" said the crane.

They started talking about the jungle and other animals. Then the crane went inside the kitchen and invited the fox for dinner. The dinner was served in a big narrow jug. Now the fox was in real trouble. The fox could not eat the delicious food served by the crane because the fox cannot eat the food from a narrow jug.

The fox understood that he has been treated in the same way as he treated the crane. He went home with hungry. While going home he thought if I do harm to the innocent poeple it will come back to me immediately.
