It was the lion’s birthday. All the birds and animals went with gifts for the king‘s den. At the den, all the arrangements had been made. The king had invited all the animals and birds for a striking feast.
All were present there. At the fixed time the cake was cut. Then everybody sang the birthday song and enjoyed the feast. After the party, the lion noticed that all had come except the donkey. He thought, maybe some urgent work has kept him busy.
The next day when the lion met the donkey, he asked him about it. The donkey replied, “Oh! I don’t like attending parties. There is no place like home. So I stayed back at home and relaxed.”
In annoyance, the lion banished the donkey from the jungle. Since then the donkey has lived with men and passed their loads.
Moral: Ensure that your truth does not insult another.
