A Farmer And A Snake
It was winter. A farmer was returning home from market. Suddenly he found (saw) a snake lying half dead by the road side. He felt pity for the dying creature. The farmer said to himself, “I shall warm it to life.” He took it home and put it down by the fire. The farmer’s children watched the snake with great interest. They were happy to see it slowly coming to life again. One of them knelt down to stroke the snake affectionately. But the snake raised its head to bite the child. The farmer, who was nearby, noticed it. Quickly he took a stick and killed the snake with it to save child.
Moral: Gratitude cannot be expected from the wicked.
