The Shepherd and The Lion
A shepherd lost one of his sheep. The shepherd tried to look around in the jungle. When he could not find the sheep he prayed to the god that he would sacrifice another sheep if he found the lost sheep. Within no time, the shepherd reached near the cave of a lion. He found that the lion was feasting on the missing sheep. Now the shepherd was too scared of the lion. He started praying to the god, “If I am able to escape from this ferocious lion then I will sacrifice another sheep in lieu of saving my life”. The moral of the story is, “A man always holds his own life dearer than anything else”.
