                   Intermediate Stories A Foolish Stag.

There lived a beautiful stag in a jungle full of streams and falls. He briskly moved through the whole area. One day he was drinking water at a stream. He saw his reflection in the clear running water. He admired the proportionate figure he had. He was so delighted to see his beautiful horns that he bragged that there was no such thing as was the beauty of his antlers. Then his eyes caught sight of his thin legs. He wished that he had legs more worthy to bear such a noble crown. He said to -himself, "What a pity to have such ugly legs with such beautiful horns."

While he was lost in his thought, suddenly, he heard the howling of the hounds from a distance. He got alert and the next moment, he took to his heels. The hounds proved no match for him. He ran at the top of his speed and soon reached the thickest part of the jungle. Reaching there, he hid himself in some thick bushes.

In the meanwhile, the hounds did not lose his smell and kept following him. The stag got ready for another race. He jumped up to run but fell back. His long antlers got caught in the bushed. He struggled hard to free himself but in vain. The hounds were getting nearer and nearer. He could now hear them barking ans snorting. At that critical moment the stag cursed his horns. He realized his mistake but it was too late then. The hounds reached there and tore him into pieces. Before dying, he realized that nothing made by God is useless. The legs he hated could have saved his life, but his beautiful horns caused his death.

Moral:

  • All the Glitters is Not Gold.

  • Do not find fault with the ways of God.

  • Appearances are deceptive.
