THE SWAN AND THE TORTOISE

A tortoise by name Kambugriva lived in a small lake.

It had two swan friends.

Every day, the swans came to the lake and talked to the tortoise. Often they told stories of gods and rishis to the tortoise. They returned to their nests at night-fall.

Once there was no rain for a long time and the lake had almost become dry.

The swans asked the tortoise, " Friend, what will you do when there is no water left?

I am also worried, " replied the tortoise.

It continued, "I have been thinking about it. I must go to some other place. If you bring a strong rope or light stick, I shall cling'-to it with my teeth and you can fly me, by holding the two ends of the rope or stick   in your beaks, to any other lake where there is plenty of water.
