THE HARE AND THE ELEPHANT

Once there was an elephant king,who lived in a forest.

There was no rain for a long time in the forest and so the water in all the pools dried up.

The other elephants went and asked their king:"Oh King! There is not a drop of water anywhere near. Where shall we find water for drinking or bathing?"

The elephant king thought for a moment, and said: "I know of a big lake not far from here. Water never dries up there. Let us all go to that lake." So all the elephants went, to the place where they could find water.

There was plenty of water in the lake. The elephants joyfully entered the lake and played about in the water. They decided to stay near that lake.

On the shores of that lake lived many hares. The hares were upset because some of them were trampled under foot and killed by these elephants.
