There was an old snake named Mandavishya, who lived close to a mountain.
Because of his old age, he was not able to go after frogs. He thought, “I am so old it would be impossible chase for sustenance. I won’t have the capacity to live long without sustenance, and it is just going to make me weaker to chase, also. I need to consider something”.
All of a sudden, a thought struck him. As arranged, he went to an adjacent lake, which was brimming with frogs, and loose on the bank of the lake with no aim to chase. He acted as if he doesn’t ha anything to do with the frogs.
At first the frogs fled, however as he was not chasing, the frogs accumulated some mettle and drew closer him. One of them asked, “O Snake! Why do you not chase, similar to your conduct?”
The snake answered calmly, “I have no craving for nourishment, as I am disastrous. I’ll disclose to you. The previous evening, when I was meandering about looking for frogs, I bit a Brahmin’s child in disappointment of not discovering any prey. The Brahmin reviled me. He said, ‘From now onwards, you might have the capacity to do only serve frogs. You will need to live off what frogs offer to you!’ And along these lines, I lie here, to serve any frogs who needs my administrations. I can give a ride on my back to any frog who wishes for a ride”
At the point when the news came to the ruler of frogs, he went to the snake alongside his clergymen. On being guaranteed by the snake that he intends no mischief, the lord chose to take a ride on the snake’s back. The snake rode him around the lake, and the ruler was extremely entertained. Indeed, even the priests and different snakes alternated to ride the snake, and they were extremely entertained, as well.
The snake, as well, substantiated himself a decent performer by displaying different styles of creeping. The frogs, particularly the lord of frogs, were enchanted. The frogs hopped and jumped the distance.
The following morning the snake claimed to be powerless and creeped gradually intentionally. The lord of frogs, then again, was eager to begin the morning with a ride on the snake’s back. He watched the snake’s conduct and enquired.
The snake answered, “I am so feeble it couldn’t be possible slither. I have not eaten for so long, and must eat something to be solid to issue you a ride.”
The ruler of frogs thought for some time, counseled his priests, and concluded that they must serve the snake one frog a day to keep him solid. This was what the snake had made arrangements for. He commended his graciousness, and issued him and alternate frogs a ride on his back.
From that point onwards, the snake offered ride to the frogs, and got the opportunity to eat one frog consistently. In a brief while, he recovered quality. Then again, the lord of frogs was so energized it would have been impossible understand the frogs were quickly diminishing in numbers and there were just a modest bunch of them that remained.
The frog lord was so totally taken in by the snake’s discussion that he didn’t comprehend his genuine thought process.
One day, a huge dark snake landed at the bank of the lake. He was extremely amazed to see the energized frogs jumping in happiness, and riding on the snake’s back.
The dark snake enquired, “O companion! Why are you conveying frogs on your back? They are our sustenance!”
The old snake disclosed everything to the dark snake. He proceeded with, “I have found various tastes in the wake of eating a wide range of frogs here. I have this simple lifestyle, and getting a charge out of it here.”
Over the long run, the snake had eaten even the bigger snakes, and began eating the clergymen and the ruler’s relatives. At last, one day, he ate the lord likewise and therefore, the whole frogs in the lake died.
The shrewd to be sure say:
Be careful with trickiness from all quarters including your companions.
