Snake and Frogs | short story for kids in english
Long ago a snake lived at the forest. Due to old age it was very difficult to go in search of food. So, it planned how to get food without any difficulty.
Then it seemed like an idea. It went near a pond full of frogs and sat down with its face worried. Then a frog asked the snake, “Sir, why are you so worried, are you looking for food?”
The snake replied, Dude I unknowingly bit a Brahmin boy yesterday. In which he died. His father cursed me that, “You must serve your prey for the rest of your life and eat the food they give you.” So I have come to your place so that I can serve you and live. ”
The matter immediately went to the frog king’s ear. The frog king came to meet the snake to find out if this thing was true. Knowing that the snake had come to serve them, the frog king climbed on the snake’s back and began to ride. One by one the other frogs climbed on the back of the snake.
After some distance the snake crawled very slowly and the frog king asked, “Why are you tired, friend?” The snake said, “I am very hungry and I have not eaten anything.” The frog king said, “Well, you can eat the last frog on your back.”
This is how the snake will act after the daily ride. One by one the frog king fed other frog’s to the snake.
At last the frog king climbed on the back of the snake without knowing that he was going to be the victim. After moving a short distance, the snake acted as tired and swallowed the frog king. Thus the snake betrayed the Frogs and the Frogs lost their lives.
Things done without thinking can end in danger.
