29. Tiger, Tiger...!


A little village boy was grazing cattle. He felt lazy in the afternoon and thought of playing a practical joke. His village was on the edge of a forest and so he thought of a prank. He lifted up his voice and cried, “Tiger, tiger.” The villagers who were working in the fields heard his cry and came rushing. Vijay clapped his hands and laughed. The villagers were very angry and returned to their work.

A week passed by. Vijay, the mischievous boy, thought of fooling the people again. He lifted up his voice and shouted, “Tiger, tiger. Please come and help me.” The villagers again came running to save the boy. On seeing them Vijay doubled up in laughter. The villagers were quite up- set, warned him never to repeat it and walked away.

A month passed by. Vijay was grazing cattle when he saw a subtle shadow moving close to the edge of the forest. He was terrified. He started screaming, “Tiger! Truly it’s a tiger!” But nobody came to his rescue. “We are not falling for your tricks,” said the villagers and went about their work. The screams continued and gradually died down. The villagers grew suspicious and went to check on the boy. Alas! Only bits of him could be recovered.

Make a decision never to speak lies. Always speak the truth. If you lie, people will lose their trust in you.
