THE SHEPHERD, THE HOUND AND THE SICK SHEEP
A shepherd had a hound. Whenever a sheep died, the shepherd gave the dead sheep for the hound to eat. Once, a sheep fell sick and was about to die. The shepherd looked worried. Near him sat the hound which was also looking sad. The hound started weeping. The shepherd asked the hound to stop showing off emotions. The shepherd said, “You may be an expert in showing off your emotions for the dying sheep. But I know, inside your heart you are wishing the sheep to die so that you can get to feast on the dead sheep”. This happens to many people also. Every heir to property shows sympathy with the sick owner, while wants him to die sooner than later.
