The irresponsible Ox.

A Moral Story : The irresponsible Ox.


A brave warrior had a horse and an ox. He used the horse for travelling and the ox was used for pulling load for the warrior.

War had broken. The warrior was to go to a far off place.

The horse said to the ox, "Hey ox! I am to carry the master to a far off place".

The ox replied, “How unlucky you are! I am lucky. I need not pull loads. I have no work to do".

But, it so happened that before the warrior could set off, the war had come to an end and the enemy had surrended. Now, the warrior had plenty of work to do locally.

The ox was overburdened now.

Moral of the Story : Avoiding responsibility ends in overburden.
