A lion is hung with a safety pin

A doll below the teddy bear

A doggie fixed in a broken case

When the person comes out of the office,

They often stop and try to remember

What did ask him to bring

Should I buy teddy bear if it does not cost too much?

Or should I buy the toy camera?

When my son happily asks me to take

His photo; how adorable he looks!

That red doll there looks completely new

If I get it for 20 rupees only,

How happy, my daughter Misbah will be

Brother! How much is this doll?

Sir! You pass through here everyday

I don’t feel like bargaining with you,

Give me 100 rupees and take it home

My silence told him everything

Okay now give eighty, the doll is yours

How cheaper can a toy be than this?

Upholding my self-esteem I hear myself say

Fine! I’ll come tomorrow or day after

As I need to purchase many more toys

Going towards the Empress Market I think

Eighty rupees are Veggies for home

Eighty rupees is my fare to reach home

Eighty rupees are needed for the journal

My elder son has been asking for these many days

Why worry about toys? They can be bought

When I get the payment next week

I’ll purchase new toys for my children

Aren’t we old toys set on the Media’s cart?

Lions hanging tucked with safety pins

Old toys placed on the new pushcart!

Chuchu helplessly watched Pomi’s arrest with dismay and wet eyes.

The   onlookers moved away from there to see other caged animals and flora and fauna in the zoo.

The guards later moved on to carry out their other duties clearing the place.

Chuchu came out from a slit in the birch tree and tiptoed in Titu’s cage.

Titu was elated to see his friend.   He caressed him with his trunk.

Titu: “How did you get in here Chuchu?”

Pomi: “Its Chuchu only who helped me meet you Titu. If Chuchu didn’t guide me the way, I would have died missing you my baby.”

Chuchu: “It’s your greatness Pomi that you think positively otherwise I hold responsible myself for creating all this mishap for you both.”

Pomi: “Nay, nay Chuchu, please do not curse yourself. Aunt Fox has told me that it was Titu who forced you to provide him a ride in train. It is you who risked life and helped me get to Titu in here.”

“ I love to be with my baby in the cage than to be free without Titu.

It’s better to be in captivity with my child than to live without him. Believe you me, I am very obliged to you and very satisfied here.”

All three stayed very calm for a while then Pomi asked Chuchu to leave.

Pomi: “Chuchu dear you must go as you have a long way to go. Please give our regards to all the animals in the jungle. Tell them we are very happy here and they need not worry for us.”

Chuchu said good-bye to them and getting out of the cage, started towards railway station.

Aunt fox had also moved towards her home after Pomi and Chuchu started for city to meet Titu.

Aunt Fox met ChinChin Monkey and Pita Parrot on the way back home. Pita parrot called out Aunt Fox: “Where are you off to Aunt? Won’t you have chitchat with us for a while?’’

Aunt Fox: “Hey Chuchu have you married or still roaming weirdly and lonely as a cloud?”

ChinChin Monkey and Pita Parrot darted down and sat near Aunt Fox to make out what she had in her Pandora box.

Aunt Fox began to enlighten them with fables of here and there.

She told them about Titu’s ride in a train and his captivity. And also about Pomi that how she got there and now both mother and son are in a zoo.

She was tired of a long journey and   story telling   so she walked towards her warren.

Pita Parrot was fond of spreading rumors.  He at once did justice to his heart’s desire hence the story of Pomi and Titu spread like fire in the jungle.

ChinChin was favorite secret agent of Sher Dil, the King of jungle so he ran fast to tell him before anybody else would.

The King Sher Dil was taken a back, and shocked to hear the news. He was very upset to know that such big incidents happened in his Kingdom and he was unaware of it. He felt disgusted.

He was tense that two precious lives of his governance were in danger. The King scolded ChinChin for his irresponsible conduct.

The king commanded self-conscious ChinChin to inform Sardar Trumpet immediately that the King will pay him a visit soon.

Knowing about the King’s visit, all animals became alert and got on their heels and toes.

Everybody busied themselves in cleaning-up the place.

Sardar Trumpet made a comfortable place for the King on a raised spot under the shade of a huge birch tree.

Aunt Fox as a good host asked Baba Bear and Woo Wolf to arrange, new hunted fresh meat for the King.

An elephant announced the arrival of the King.

All animals present there greeted the king with respect and awe.

The king shared his concern over two   precious endangered lives of   Pomi and her son Titu. He said that if he had the least idea he would have never allowed them to go to the unsafe city of humans.

Sardar Trumpet: “You’re Excellency! I advised Pomi not to go but she did not pay attention to my advice.  Thus I gave in seeing her craving for her missing son.”

King sarcastically roared, “Very well said!  This is nothing but sheer lame excuse.”

The King: “I know that none other than a mother would take such a bold step. But would you be kind enough to explain what kind of a Chief are you of your tribe? Wasn’t it your responsibility to take care of their life? You could have informed me at least if you failed to handle the situation. I would have accompanied   her or sent someone with her.”

The King: “Send Chuchu the rat in, right away.”

Chuchu, who had just returned and was very exhausted after a long journey, went near the King and feebly bowed him.

The king: “Chuchu, you   look dead tired.  Where are you coming from? Then he ordered   the Aunt Fox to feed Chuchu with some sweet corn and maize.

After eating and gaining some strength, Chuchu told the king the entire story again about Pomi and Titu’s imprisonment.

Pomi’s sisters and her friends started to sob after listening to the   painful story.

Trumpet, was a symbol of regret and repent for all the animals present there. He then realized that a stitch in time saves nine.  Beating about the bush was too late then.

 Donkeys are known to be silly and brainless. Though they carry heavy loads and are a great help for human beings. Their voice is horrifying, so, when they bray, people desire to bring to an end. Once, a donkey while going through a forest with its master saw a lion’s skin lying under a tree.  Some hunters may have forgotten to take it with them.

One day the donkey in secret went to the same place where he had seen the lion’s skin. He was happy to see it there. He put it on.  He felt very proud thinking himself like a real King.

He walked around the Jungle frightening all the foolish animals in this disguise.   

On the way he saw a fox. He tried to frighten him too, but, in his delight he opened his mouth and brayed in triumph.

   The fox that was running in fright recognized the donkey’s voice.  Hence it stopped suddenly and laughingly said: “If you really want to frighten me you have to snarl like the lion too. Your braying exposed you.”

 

Moral of the Story:

Fine clothes may disguise a fool, but silly words will give him away.

 

As we know that the lion is known across the world to be the king of the beasts for its dynamism and verve.

Many years ago, a wicked lion ruled over a jungle somewhere in Africa.  One day he didn’t feel like going out of his cave to look for his prey. So he asked a rabbit to spread the message in the jungle that the King is very sick. Hence he wishes all the animals of his kingdom to come to his cave to hear his last wish, before he dies.

The sly fox, did not wish to be first to enter the cave. So he waited near the way in, of lion`s den while the goat, sheep and the calf went inside to receive the last wishes of the king of the beasts.

After some time, the lion seemed to be in better health after eating the goat, sheep and the calf, come out to the mouth of the cave.

Seeing the fox at a safe distance away, he howled: “Why don’t you come in to pay your regards to me, buddy fox?”

The sly fox, who was very clever, replied; “Pardon me, your Majesty ! I did not wish to crowd your den, as I saw many other animals going into your cave, but none coming out. I thought you would not like so many animals at one time.  Thus I decided to wait outside in open air, till some of them come out so there could be some space for more animals to come in the cave. Until then I preferred to remain in the open air.”

The wicked lion had no option but to get in his den.

Moral of the Story: Do not believe all you hear.

 

A foolish donkey and a sly Fox, somehow, became friends. One day having entered into a partnership together, went out into the forest to hunt. They had not gone far, when they met a Lion. The sly Fox well aware of the lion’s might, went to him and started flattering and pleasing with sweet words.  She pleaded the lion that if he promises to spares her, she would arrange the capture of the donkey for him.

 On his assuring her that he would not injure her, the Fox led the Donkey to a deep hollow. And she, made sure, that the Donkey should fell into it. Thinking that she is safe now stood aside waiting to see poor silly donkey become the delicious foodstuff for the lion.

The Lion, seeing that the Donkey was secured in the ditch, without any delay grabbed the Fox. So before the Fox could free herself from the strong grip of the mighty lion, the fresh flesh of the sly Fox contented the hunger of the king of the jungle.

The Lion ate the Donkey,later, at his leisure time.               

Moral of the Story: We learn by the misfortunes of others.

 

 

 

   


 

 

 

   

A donkey and a cock were two good friends. They lived happily together in a farmyard. One day a hungry lion was passing through that farm.  He saw a stout and well fed donkey. The Lion, being starving, decided to make a meal of it.  He stood there, thinking, as to, how to make the donkey come out from the farm.

The cock was watching the lion.  The Lion did not see the cock, as he was engrossed in the donkey only. The cock realized that the lion is up to something.

The cock is a proud bird.   There is also, a saying that the cock’s crow irritates the lion a lot.   To upset the lion He started flapping his wings and crowing loudly gave one of its proudest cock-a-doodle-dos. This protest surprised the Lion who had not seen the bird in the farm.
Not knowing who was making this noise, the Lion turned and ran in alarm.
The Donkey who had been listening to the Cock crow, about saw this as a chance to prove his own worth. Thinking the Lion coward, who fears a bird, the donkey, began to chase the mighty Lion feeling proud of him.

Soon the Lion thought, “Why I’m running away? I shall turn and fight.”

The Lion turned his head, ready for a fierce fight, but saw it was only a Donkey who had been chasing him.   He was too delighted to see his own prey coming towards him.  The Lion jumped at the poor Donkey and killed him.  As he began to eat, he paused and sighed slowly, “Today I have been fooled.  My own prey chased me!

Think before you leap!
