The Elephant and the Tailor – Short Story

There lived an elephant in a village. While going to river to take a bath regularly he passed a tailor's shop. Tailor always gave him something to eat. The two became friends.

As usual one day he put his trunk inside the shop. The tailor was not in a good mood as he had a quarrel with a customer.

The tailor instead of giving him something to eat pricked a needle into his trunk. The elephant silently went away.

The elephant reached the river and took his bath. After that he filled muddy water in his trunk. On his way back he stopped at the tailor's shop and threw all the muddy water on the clothes in the shop. All the clothes were destroyed. Tailor had to bear heavy loss.

Moral:

As you sow, so shall you reap?
