always be on alert
Once upon a time there lived a tiger that grew old that he was unable to kill any prey for his food.so, he decided, I must do something to stay my stomach else I will die of starvation. He kept on thinking and at last an idea clicked him.

He decided to lie down in the cave pretending to be ill and then who-so-ever will come to inquire about his health, that person will be his pray. So the old lion put his wicked and mischievous plan to practice and it started working.

Many of his well-wishers who fall prey got killed, but as the saying goes evil is short lived. One faithful day, a tortoise came to visit the ailing lion. As tortoise are clever by nature, the tortoise stood at the mouth of the cave and looked about.

His sixth sense worked and he came to know the reality. So, he called out to the tiger from outside and said, how are you doing, sir? The tiger replied, I am not feeling well at all. And he asked the tortoise, but why don’t you want to come inside so you know how I am feeling?

Then the tortoise smiled and said, I would have love to come inside sir, but on seeing all footprint going to your cave and none coming out, I would be so foolish enough to come in. after saying so the fox went to alert the other animals.

and the animals planed and destroy the old tiger.

Morals: always keep your eyes open and stay at alert before walking to any situation in life.
