The Brainless ass
The Brainless ass
Once upon a time, there was an old lion. He was the king of the jungle. He had become very old and weak, so he thought of keeping an assistant who could muster food for him. For this post, jackal seemed to him to be the best candidate, and he appointed him as his assistant. Now the jackal was to arrange food for the lion everyday.
It was the first day when jackal went to search for an animal whom he could a fleshy ass. The jackal thought a trick to fool the ass to go to the lion. When he carved out his plan, he went onto the ass and said "Hello dear ass! where were you ? asked the ass. The king lion has appointed you his chief minister and has entrusted me the responsibility of communicating this news to you. Now you should meet the king immidiately," the jackal fooled the ass. Hearing this all, the ass was very happy, but the feared the lion very much. So the jackal said, "Don't worry, i am with you". Thus both of them reached to the lion. The lion was very happy to see the fleshy ass coming to him, but the ass was fearful of the lion. He was more than ready to run back.
As both of them reached near the lion, the lion could not control his temptation and jumped over the ass to kill him. But the ass was alredy prepared, he ran away from there swiftly. "Oh no!" said the jackal, "His majesty! you should have controlled your temptation. The ass ran because you made hastle." "But what now ?" asked the lion. "I try again," replied the jackal. Jackal then, moved from there.
He again went to the ass and asked him, "Why did you run from there ?" The ass replied trembling, "He wanted to kill me." "No ! you should not fear . He was very happy on your arrival and jumped to embrace you. He is very sad now. You should go there at once." said jackal fooling the ass. The ass got fooled again and reached the lion with the jackal. This time the lion did not make hastle and moved close to the ass easily. When he reached very close to the ass, he attacked with his claws to hurt at the forehead of the ass. The ass fell dead with his claws to hurt at the forehead of the ass. The ass fell dead with his forhead bleeding.
After killing the ass the lion was to start eating him. But the jackal was also hunger. He again played a trick. He said to the lion , "His majesty ! Don't bath before taking your food ?" The Lion in order to maintain his impressin, said, "Oh yes ! you stay here and take care of this ass till i come back." Saying this, he went to the river to bath.
Now the jackal took out the brain of the ass from the already torn forehead, and ate it.
when the lion came back and started eating the ass, he found no brain in his body. He asked the jackal about it. The jackal answered, "His majesty ! An ass has no brain. That's why he came to you again despite being attacked earlier by you . " The lion agreed to it and ate away the ass.
