The proud donkey.

A Moral Story : The proud donkey.

There was a sculptor who carved beautiful idols of gods and goddesses.

One day he had to take an idol of a goddess to a rich man. He mounted the idol on a donkey and started.

As they walked along people started to admire the idol. Some stopped to admire and some bowed in respect for the goddess.

The foolish donkey thought that people were admiring him. The donkey stopped half way through. He began to bray loudly.

The sculptor tried gentle words and actions to pacify him. But he did not move.

At last the sculptor took a hard stick and thrashed the donkey. He came back to his senses and walked on humbly.

Moral of the Story : A nod for the wise and a rod for the fool.
