Once there was a big haystack near a village and several small animals had made their homes in it. Among them were a snake, a tortoise and a jackal.
One day, all the three creatures were gossiping, when suddenly they heard some people shouting Fire! Fire! the snake said that he knew hundred ways to deal with the fire and the tortoise said that he knew thousand ways.
When it was the Jackal’s turn, he said, “I know only one way to deal with the fire and that is to run away.” Saying this, the Jackal ran away and other fire specialists got burnt in the fire.
