The Monkeys and the bell

The Monkeys and the bell :

A thief, who was escaping with a stolen bell was killed and eaten by a tiger.

The bell was found by the monkeys who began to ring it. The noise frightened the people of the nearby villages who thought it was the sound of a giant.

Only one woman was not afraid and she went out with a basket of fruit. Nearby she heard the bell. She left the basket on the ground and hid.

No sooner had the monkeys thrown themselves on the fruit the woman picked up the bell and ran back to the village. She was praised for her heroic courage in stealing the bell from the giant!
