THE FOX AND THE CRANE
Once a fox and a crane became friends. So, the fox invited Crane to dinner. Crane accepted the invitation and reached the fox at sunset.
The fox had prepared the soup for his companion. But as we all know that foxes are clever by nature, he made delicious soup and served it in front of the crane on a plate. Therefore, the fox itself licked the whole soup with its tongue and enjoyed its taste to the fullest. But Crane could not enjoy it at all with his long beak and had to go back home hungry.
A few days later, Crane invited the fox to dine with him. The fox reached its place well in time. Crane gave him a warm welcome and served soup in the jug with a long and narrow neck.
So, Crane enjoyed the soup with great taste, using his long beak. The fox's mouth could not reach the soup through the narrow neck of the jaggery. He had to return home hungry. He now realizes that he was repaid for his dealings with Crane.
