THE SWALLOW AND THE SNAKE
The swallow always makes her nest in human dwellings. A swallow once made her nest in a court of justice, thinking it would be the safest place as judges used to do justice there. The swallow laid seven eggs and in due course seven chicks came out of them. A snake had been waiting for the chicks to come out of the eggs. The snake crept out of its hole and devoured all the chicks one by one. Poor swallow wailed her heart out and said, “I thought that a place where justice is done would be a safe place for my children. But I am the victim of injustice in this temple of justice”.
