Title: The foolishness of the Crow
One day a crow stole a piece of meat. It flew away and sat on the branch of a tree. Suddenly a fox was going under that tree. He saw the piece of meat in the beak of the crow and wanted to have the piece of meat. He hit upon a plan to accomplish his evil design. He wanted to flatter the crow. He began to say that the crow was very beautiful to look at. Its feathers were extremely glamorous and Its beak was very nice. Further, the clever fox added that the beauty of the crow could not be described in words.
The sweet words of the fox pleased the crow very much and it became overwhelmed with joy. But again the fox said that the crow was unfortunately dumb. At this, the crow became a bit angry and in order to drive the futility of his words, the crow opened its mouth to caw. Then and there the piece of meat fell down from its mouth and the clever fox grabbed it and went away with that piece of meat.
Moral: Do not give way to flattery.
