A friend in need is a friend in deed
There lived two friends in a certain village. They were very fond of traveling. They liked to enjoy the beauty of nature, to see green trees, blue seas and to hear the sweet songs of birds. One day they went to a forest for traveling. They were walking along with the path of the forest. One time they entered the deep forest and lost their way. At that time a terrible incident happened. They saw a bear coming towards them. One friend knew how to climb up the tree. So, seeing the bear he climbed up the tree promptly. The another friend didn’t know how to climb up it. So, to protect himself, he lay down on the grass and acted as he was dead. The bear came near the lying friend, smelt the body and thought it to be a dead-body. As the bear does not eat a dead body,he went away.When it went away, the another friend got down from the tree and asked his friend, “What did the bear say to you?” In reply he said, “A friend who leaves his friend at the time of danger, is not a real friend.” At this he was ashamed and went away.
