The God And The Tortoise
In ancient times, the tortoise did not need to carry its shell along with it. All that changed with a curse. The God of love invited all the animals to his wedding. All the animals attended the wedding ceremony but the tortoise was absent. The God went to the tortoise and asked the reason for his absence. The tortoise replied, “There is no place like home. So, I preferred to stay at home”. The God became angry at the tortoise and gave a curse to the tortoise that since then the tortoise will always have to carry its home wherever it went. Now, the tortoise always has to live with its house. The heavy shell which the tortoise always has to carry is nothing but its house.
