Deep inside the forest by the side of a river, there was a mango tree.

In that mango tree lived a group monkeys.

They always relished those mangos.

Once, a group of men came and started settling down not far from there.

The leader of the monkeys said: now we have to be very careful.

So far, the taste of mangos is unknown to men.

Once they realize how tasty mangos are, they will chase us away and have the mangos for themselves.

Men are like that.

They are very selfish.

They don’t understand that mother nature cares about all her children alike.

Her resources are for everyone: birds, animals, plants, trees.

But men don’t understand this.

They think they are all meant for men only and they amass and keep with themselves more than they require.

They build big big warehouses and store up everything.

After some time, they start rotting and they have to throw all that away.

Still they don’t understand.

They don’t understand that nature takes care of everyone, provides for everyone.

We don’t store up like this.

But we never sleep hungry.

Men don’t understand this.

So be very careful.

Never allow them to have a whiff of what we have got here.

Don’t allow mangos to fall in the river.

Don’t allow mangos to fall on the ground.

Monkeys became alert and would pluck mangos before they became fully ripe lest they fall down or fall into the river.

But one day, without the monkeys knowing it, a ripe mango fell into the river and was caught in the net of a man who was fishing in the river.

When he took his catch and was sorting, he found the yellow sweet smelling fruit.

He and his wife started wondering: what is this!

Never seen this fruit before.

The wife wanted to taste it.

The man said: let’s not take a risk.

I will take it to the king and show him first.

So the man took the mango to the king’s court.

The king was also surprised to see the new fruit.

He asked the ministers and the scholars in the court what it was.

One of them identified that it was mango.

But it is a very rare fruit.

Never seen in this part of the world.

But it is very tasty and is also very nourishing.

Where did you get it?

They asked the man.

I caught it in my fishing net, in the forest, in the river.

Then there must be a mango tree in the forest.

Let’s go and find out.

They asked the man to take them to the river where he found the mango.

Upon reaching that place, they started looking around and soon found the mango tree.

There were a lot of mangos in the tree.

By the time, it was evening.

The king told that we will rest for the night under the tree and in the morning start plucking the fruits.

In the night they heard sounds from the tree and found that there were monkeys also in the tree.

They said: good, we will pluck all the mangos and also catch all the monkeys also in the morning.

Their meat is very tasty.

This story tells about the importance of being alert.

In today’s world no amount of alertness is sufficient.

You cannot afford to be absent minded.

See, one mango fell into the river and it put the lives of the whole group of monkeys at risk.

You have to be very alert and careful about your belongings and valuables.

Never try to show off your valuable belongings.

You may catch the attention of evil people and end up in trouble.
