The majestic lion was the king of the forest.
He was very proud of his power.
One day a rabbit saw a dream.
There was a man in the dream.
He was calling the rabbit.
But a voice told the rabbit: don’t go near him, he will trap you.
The rabbit was startled.
He got up from the dream and started running.
He reached in front of the lion.
The lion asked him: why are you running?
Why are you scared?
The rabbit said: a man has come to the forest, unless we run away he will trap us.
The lion said: who is a man?
Never heard of such a creature.
No one will touch you when I am here.
I am the king of this forest.
Nobody can do anything without my permission
Anyway, let’s go and find out whether a man is really there or not.
They both started looking around for the man.
After some time they saw a donkey running towards them, panting.
The lion asked the donkey: why are you running?
Who is chasing you?
Nobody is chasing me, your majesty.
But I heard that a man has come into the forest
I have heard from my elders that if you are ever caught by a man, he will make you carry huge loads.
That’s why I am running away.
The lion said: don’t worry, I will protect you.
Let’s all go together and look for the man.
As they went about looking for the man, they saw a horse come running in fear?
The lion asked the horse: what are you scared of, why are you running?
The horse said: a man is in the forest, I heard.
If he catches me, he will climb on my back and make me run.
But, have you seen him?
No, I haven’t.
And I don’t want to see him also
That’s why I am running.
The lion said: I am your king.
He will not dare to come in front of me.
But anyway, we will all go together and look for the man.
With me, you will be safe.
As they moved about, a real man came in front of them.
The lion asked him: who are you?
I have never seen you in this forest before.
The man said: I am a poor carpenter.
I make houses from wood.
The minister of this forest has asked me to come and make a beautiful house for him.
That’s why I am here.
The lion was offended.
I am the king of the forest.
How can my minister have a house before me?
If you do that, I will kill you.
The man said: no, no your majesty,
I will make a house for you first.
Then he started cutting trees and making a cage for the lion.
The lion had never seen a house before.
When the cage was ready, the man said: your majesty, your house is ready.
Please go inside and check whether you like it.
The lion got inside the cage.
The man suddenly closed the door and locked up the lion inside.
Rabbit, donkey, and horse ran away for their lives.
The man later called the circus people and sold the lion to them.
See the result of being proud of your capabilities.
If you think that you are very powerful and nothing can happen to you; if you think that you are very capable and you will never fail, then danger and failure can befall upon you any time.
