He had a mule. That mule was old and of no use. One day that mule fell in the well.
The former decided to bury that mule in the well. With the help of his neighbors, he started putting sand in the well. At first that mule was angry but then he shook off sand from his back and stepped up and up on the layer of sand.
After a long time he reached the top of the well and was out of it.
Moral: Do not be afraid of troubles. Shake it off. Each trouble is a stepping stone and one can get out of it.
