"There was a big temple in a small town. The temple had an elephant. The elephant and its mahout lived in the temple campus. Mahout used to take good care of the elephant. Mahout: Come on let’s go to the town. He used to take the elephant around the town street and earned money. The elephant and mahout went from shop to shop and the shop keepers gave money to the elephant. The Elephant in turn blessed them. This was the routine. There was a tailor who had his shop in the town street. One day as usual the elephant came asking for money. Tailor: Ah the elephant has come. It’s irritating me. Everyday I have to pay money. Today let me play a trick on it. I am not going to give the money. Instead I will give … heehehe (villain laugh) By the time the elephant came near the tailor shop. The tailor came out of the shop with his hand closed. The tailor acted as if placing the coin in the trunk but actually he pricked the trunk with the needle which he had in his hand. The elephant cried with pain. Mahout: What happened to you my dear? Tailor: Ah.. What happened ? Why its behaviour is peculiar today? Hey boy ! what’s the matter? Be cool.. The Tailor acted as if he is innocent and went back to continue his work. The Elephant too left the place but with the pain. The same evening... Elephant: I should teach a lesson to the tailor.He is so mean. The next morning. Mahout: Come on my boy. Let me give your bath and then you can relish on your food, the yummy sugarcane. The Elephant stood still without any reaction. Mahout: Boy what happened? I said sugarcane for your breakfast. But the elephant was thinking about tailor. Mahout: Come on move my boy. Mahout walked with the elephant. While on the way the elephant suddenly walked in different direction. MAHOUT: Hey hey that’s not the route to the pond. This way, this way. The elephant saw a pool of mud and went near it. MAHOUT: Where are you going? The elephant did not hear the words of the mahout. He continued his walk. ELEPHANT: This seems to be a good idea. Elephant sucked the mud as much as he can and walked towards the tailor shop. Mahout: What is he going to do with the mud? The Elephant walked straight to the tailor shop. Mahout followed the elephant. The Tailor had just opened his shop and was preparing himself for the day’s work. The Elephant went near the tailor and before the tailor could realize anything, elephant sprayed the mud on him. Mud was on his face, shoulder, hands. Elephant: Heeeeee... Mahout: Oh no ! What have you done my boy? Ah Now I understand. Yesterday you should have played some trick on him. That is the reason why he has done this to you. At least from now you learn a lesson and don’t play tricks on any one… ok. Mahout: Come on my boy. Now I should give you a special bath. They both walked while the tailor stood there helplessly. Moral: Do not expect any good in return of bad. "
