Monkey And The Wedge
Once upon a time there was a merchant called Dhinu.
Dhinu decided to construct a temple in the middle of his garden. For construction
he employed many carpenters and masons. All workers took off daily for their
lunch and resume their work after the break.
One day, when they left the place for lunch something
strange happened. A troop of monkeys arrived at the construction site of the
temple and began playing with the things they found fancy or different. One of
the monkeys saw a huge log of wood which was half done. A wedge was fixed in
the gap of the log to prevent the wood log from closing up. Out of curiosity
that monkey went closer to the log and placed his leg in between the half split
log and started pulling the wedge.
All of sudden, the wedge came out of the log and
monkey’s leg got caught in the gap of the log. The monkey died of pain.
Moral: It is not wise to poke our nose into unknown
affairs. One, who does so, surely comes to grief.
