  • STORY:: The lion and the Hare


    There was one place in the seven hill which the animals liked very much because of its good water and green grass. But a strong lion lived there. He killed three or four animals every day.

    One day the animals came to the lion and one of them speak "oh dear lion, it is good for you to run and hunt all day long in the seven hills, we will send you one animal for your dinner every day."

    "Alright" the lion said. "But you must start now because I am hungry, I must have my dinner everyday and if you don't send an animal to me everyday, I shall kill as a many of you as I want.

    "Don't kill us, dear lion. We shall send you an animal everyday, that's a promise. "

    They cast lots and that day it was an antelope who became the lion dinner. And every day they sent one animal to the hungry lion.

    But the animals were not happy, each of them thought,  "tomorrow I might be the one getting served to the lion".

    One day it was a HARE'S turn to be the Lion's dinner, but the HARE was not sad he just smiled and ssid "that's good, very good" don't be afraid, the lion will not eat me up.

    The hare ran to the river and jumped into the water and then he began to roll in the mud, he came to the lion very dirty.

    The saw him and became angry "but I don't want that dirty animal for my dinner" he cried. The hare replied "oh lion, I'm not your dinner, I was bringing you a very bit hare and on my way I met another lion and he took the Hare for himself.

    "Is there another lion in the seven hills?" Asked the lion.

    "Yes, there's. He is big and strong, I think he's strong than you are." Replied the hare.

    Hearing this, the lion became angrier than before and said to the Hare, show me the lion.

    "Alright" said the Hare, lets go.

    And they went to a big well. The hare looked into the well said, "look, he is in there with the big hare."

    The lion looked into the well, he saw himself and the Hare in the water. He jumped into the well to them and never came.

    The animals were happy. They jumped and danced and thanked the clever Hare.
