A fox and a crane
Once upon a time , there lived a fox and a crane . They were fast friends . One day the fox invited the crane to dinner .
The crane gladly accepted the invitation . He went to the residence of the fox . The fox had prepared a liquid dish .
It was served in a flat dish . The guest with its long beak could hardly pick up anything . But the host lapped it up in no time .
Poor crane went away hungry and disappointed . He cursed the fox for his selfishness and cunningness . He made up his mind to teach the fox a good lesson .
After some time , the crane invited the fox to dine at his residence . The fox accepted his invitation and went to the residence of the crane .
The crane placed before his guest a tall jar with a narrow neck . The crane with its long beak finished the contents of the jar .
But the fox could not eat anything as his mouth could not go into the narrow neck of the jar . The fox went much ashamed and hungry . The crane paid him back in the same old coin .
Tit for tat .
