Bread Dividing by a Cunning Monkey


Once upon a time, two feline friends had the misfortune of stealing a piece of bread. However, their attempt to divide it equally failed as both were greedy and wanted the bigger portion. Consequently, the argument became heated, and the two cats sought the counsel of a wise monkey, renowned in the forest for his wisdom.


The monkey, being a creature of intellect and reason, counseled the cats to resolve the issue amongst themselves as it would be a costly affair. However, the cats insisted that they needed his assistance to find a solution to their problem.


Thus, the monkey, with his great knowledge, decided to bring out a pair of scales and divided the bread into two parts. But alas, each piece was unevenly sized, and the cats once again became agitated.


Determined to find a solution, the monkey began to nibble a small portion from the bigger piece and weighed it again. This caused the smaller piece to be heavier. He then took a small piece from the smaller portion and put it on the scales, resulting in the bigger piece being heavier again.


The monkey continued to repeat the process, but the pieces never became equal. In the end, only a small piece remained. The cats requested the remaining piece, but the monkey, infuriated by their greediness and lack of cooperation, claimed it as his own and devoured it without hesitation.


The story demonstrates how greed can lead to foolishness, and how cunning behavior can ultimately lead to unfavorable outcomes.

Moral :

Two Rats and a Piece of Bread

Once upon a time, in a cozy little house, two mischievous rats snuck in and pilfered a tempting piece of bread. However, their joy quickly turned into a squabble as they couldn't agree on how to divide the spoils. In a bid to settle their dispute, they sought the arbitration of a nearby cat.

The cunning cat, sensing an opportunity, agreed to help and fetched a balance scale. With a flick of its whiskers, the cat broke the bread in two and placed each piece on one side of the scale. Predictably, one piece outweighed the other. Seizing the chance, the cat took a sizable bite from the heavier piece, claiming it was to balance the weights. But instead of equalizing, the bite only made the heavier piece even more substantial.

Undeterred by the failed attempt, the cat continued its deceitful game. It nibbled alternately from each piece, ostensibly striving for parity. However, its bites were not equal, and with each chomp, the balance tipped further out of alignment. Though the rats saw through the cat's ruse, they dared not protest, fearing its wrath.

As the bread diminished with each fraudulent bite, the rats finally plucked up the courage to request their share of what remained. However, the crafty cat, with a smirk on its whiskered face, denied their plea, claiming the remnant as payment for its "services" and swiftly devoured it. Crestfallen and wiser from the ordeal, the rats slunk away, lamenting their misfortune.

Reflecting on their encounter with the conniving cat, the rats realized the folly of their actions. They understood that disputes are best resolved through cooperation and compromise rather than relying on dubious intermediaries. Though they departed with empty stomachs, they carried with them a valuable lesson: the importance of amicable resolution in the face of disagreement. And so, with newfound wisdom, the rats vowed to settle their future disputes peacefully, steering clear of cunning cats and their deceptive schemes.
