 Once upon a time, there lived a wolf in a jungle. One day Wolf had been eating meat too quickly, and a bone had stuck crosswise in its throat. It could get bone neither up nor down, and of course, It could not eat a thing. Normally, that was an awful state of matter for a greedy Wolf.

So, It was searching for someone in the jungle to pull out the bone stuck on its throat.  By chance, it met with a crane and it hurried to the Crane. He was sure that she, with her long neck and bill, could easily be able to reach the bone and pull it out. So the wolf requested her to pull out the bone from its throat and declared “I shall reward you very if you pull out the bone”, said the Wolf,

The Crane, at first was very uneasy about entering her head into Wolf’s throat. But she was grasping in nature, so she did what the Wolf asked her to do. When the Wolf felt that the bone pulled out, it started to walk away.

 Then crane asked to wolf anxiously “But what about my reward!”

“What!” snarled the Wolf, whirling around. “Haven’t you received your award it? Isn’t it enough that I let you take your head out of my mouth without snapping it off?”

Moral: Expect no reward for serving the one who has no honor. Staying in a company of selfish people will not do anyone any favor.

It’s not mine.  I can’t cut the trees with a golden axe.  It’s not useful for me”.

God smiled and finally put his hand into the water again and took out his iron axe and asked, “Is this your axe?”  To this, the woodcutter said, “Yes!  This is mine!  Thank you!”  The Goddess was very impressed with his honesty so she gave him his iron axe and also other two axes as a reward for his honesty.
