The lion & the hare-Sharp Thinking PD Lecture

It was noon.

The sun was overhead. 

It was meal time. 

The lion king was hungry,

but there was no sight of food. 

It had never happened before. 

As the sun came overhead,

an animal would approach the Lion king

and offer itself as his food.

There was a time,

the lion would go out hunting and kill

whichever animal he could catch.

The animals requested the lion

not to wipe them out. 

They offered to send one animal

every day at noon as meal to the king. 

The lion king agreed,

and since then he had stopped hunting. 

His meal arrived at his cave every day at noon.

But not this day. 

The lion was getting impatient. 

His stomach was growling. 

He was getting angry too.

Just then, he spotted a rabbit approaching him.

 ‘My food is late and it is so small.

I will certainly teach these animals a lesson,”

the lion thought. Sharp Thinking PD Lecture

 He declared that

first I will fill my stomach.

“How dare you arrive so late?”

he growled at the hare.

“I’m sorry, My Lord. 

I would have reached here on time.

But I was delayed by that new lion

in the jungle,” the hare said.

The lion was shocked,

“I command you to tell me all about that lion.”

“That lion wanted to gobble me up. 

But I told him that

I was already on my way to meet you. 

The lion laughed at me. 

He said that a real king hunts his prey,

and that I shouldn’t bow to a weak lion like you. 

 He was telling so, I am not.

“How dare that lion insult me?

Take me to him right now,” the lion said angrily.

“My Lord, the other lion also wanted to meet you. 

He spared my life so that

I could deliver his message to you. 

He says he is the new king of the jungle.”

“Did he say so? 

Lead me to that imposter.”

“But my Lord, I wouldn’t want you to go for him. 

He is strong, and he lives in a fortress.”

“Ha! I wouldn’t expect you to understand

the meaning of pride. 

No one in this jungle can challenge me and live. 

Just lead me to this fake king of the jungle.”

The hare took the lion to the other end of the jungle. 

There was a stone well. 

“My Lord, the other lion lives inside that well-fort,”

he whispered.

The lion climbed the wall of the well and looked down. 

There he saw the ‘other’ lion looking back at him. 

The foolish lion didn’t realize

that he was staring at his own reflection. 

He gave a huge roar. 

The roar echoed in the walls of the well

and sounded even louder.

The lion turned to the hare. 

“You are right. This fellow is very strong. 

His roar is mighty. 

But don’t worry; I will kill him in a jiffy.”

Saying this, the lion jumped into the well. 

He hit his head at the well’s bottom and never came out.

All the animals hiding behind the bushes came out clapping. 

The hare gave them a bow. Everyone was very happy.
