Mohan and Sohan were friends. They lived in a village. Once they made a plan to go to Varanasi. They passed through a forest. Wild animals lived in that forest.
On the way, they saw a bear. Sohan was selfish. He climbed up a tree to save his life. Mohan could not climb up the tree. He lay down on the ground. He held his breath. The bear smelt him and took him to be dead.
He went away. Sohan came down. He asked Mohan “What was the bear speaking in your ears?” Mohan replied, “He advised me to beware of those friends who run away in time of danger”.
Moral: A friend in need is a friend indeed.
