A camel and a jackal
A camel and a jackal lived together in a jungle. On the other side of the river flowing beside that jungle , there were fields having ripe sugar- canes .
One day the jackal came to the camel with a plan to cross the river and enjoy the sugarcanes . As he did not know how to swim, so he requested the camel to carry him on his back .
The camel agreed to the jackal's request . They set out for the river and soon reached its bank . The camel carried the jackal on his back and crossed the river . On reaching the other side , they began to eat the sugarcanes .
The jackal was soon satisfied but the camel was yet hungry . The jackal began to howl loudly . The camel asked him not to do so but the jackal said that it was his habit to howl after meals .
His howling attracted the attention of the farmers . They all reached the spot with long sticks . The jackal disappeared in a bush but the camel was badly beaten .
Now they were to go across the river . The jackal requested the camel to take him across the river .
The camel agreed to do so since he wanted to retaliate upon him . When the camel reached the middle of water, he began to roll in the water . The jackal told him not to do so . But the camel said that it was his habit to do so after meals .
As a result, the jackal slipped off the camel's back and fell into the deep water . He was soon drowned . He was rightly punished for his mischievousness .
As you sow, so shall you reap ?
