Donkey and The Merchant Story

Once upon a time there lived a merchant in a small village. He used to deal in salt in the market. He had a donkey to carry the load. He used his donkey to carry the salt to the market. Everyday he loaded the salt pack with his donkey's back. He had to cross a stream to go to the market.
Donkey Loaded With Salt

Once his donkey fell into the stream and much of the salt was dissolved in water. The donkey easily crossed the stream due to the light weight of salt on his back. The donkey was so happy.

On the very next day the donkey knowingly fell into the stream. The merchant suspected the animal's intention. On the other day too the donkey intentionally repeated the same trick. His master was now sure about the animal's evil intention.

Then next day the merchant loaded the donkey with a lot of cotton. The donkey once again played the same trick. He fell into the stream. This time his load became very heavy.

The donkey carried the heavy load. It was very tiring for him to move on. The donkey now realized his mistake. He stopped falling down into the stream any more. He thought that it was not good to play tricks. The merchant had taught the donkey a good lesson.

Moral: You can be fool a person a few times but not always.
