THE SWAN AND HIS OWNER
Swans are known to sing only when they are about to die. A man had heard that swans sing beautifully. He went to a fair where swans were on sale. He purchased a swan to entertain his guests. After that, the man organized a party and kept the swan on a stage; in the hope that it would sing. But the swan sat there as it was completely dumb. The man was furious at the swan and threw it on the ground. The swan was badly injured. After some days, the swan was about to die, and hence started singing. Seeing that, the man said, “If I would have known that you sing only when you are about to die, then I would have arranged a butcher for you”.
