His relatives were continually bothering to him over little things, and he was tired of them. One day, he ascended the water-wheel and left his kingdom.
He looked for reprisal on his relatives, because of whose consistent torment; he needed to leave his kingdom. Simply then, he saw a cobra entering his cobra. He thought about an arrangement of having his relatives consumed up by the cobra.
He went to the door of the opening, and said, “My companion, I now make companions to you. I am the ruler of frogs!”
On listening to this, the cobra understood that it was not the voice of his kith or kinfolk, however his characteristic adversary. He chose not to leave his opening and turn out, for he suspected some foul reason. He suspected somebody may be attempting to catch him through mantra (enchantment spell), or possibly woodwind, or even herbs.
He addressed mindfully, “Who are you? Why do you speak this rubbish about kinship? Can timber and fire ever be companions? You are my regular foe!”
The lord of frogs answered, “Surely, your words are valid. Anyhow I look for requital on my relatives who have tormented me for quite a long time. I ask your assistance. I can lead you to the well, that is my neglected kingdom, and you can consume the same number of frogs as you need”
The cobra enquired, “A well is assembled by layers of stone. I have no legs. In what capacity would I be able to potentially get into the well? What’s more regardless of the possibility that I figure out how to do as such, where will I have the capacity to sit and consume the frogs? Go away!”
The lord of frogs guaranteed, “There is a decent agreeable hols at the edge of the water, where you can sit and consume. I will lead you to within the well, and to the agreeable opening. Anyhow you will need to guarantee me that you will consume just my irritating relatives and not my companions.”
The cobra thought about his old age, and this offer was bad to be turned down. The avaricious cobra consented to the kinship and took after the frog. He went into the gap as guaranteed. Once there, he would consume one frog at whatever point he would feel hungry. As days passed by, the quantity of frogs went down lastly all irritating frogs were depleted.
One day, the cobra shouted to the lord of frogs and said, “There are no more frogs to consume here, just your companions remain. Kindly provide for me some more nourishment. You are my companion, and it is you who have driven me here, so you are in charge of my sustenance.”
The ruler of frogs understood his error for the cobra needed all the more, so he could do only watch the cobra consume the various frogs. Indeed his nearby companions , and his child were consumed. He was eager and needed the ruler of frogs to send some more frogs.
The ruler of frogs understood, that just he among the frogs stayed alive. He guaranteed the cobra that in the event that he let him leave the well, he will bring frogs from different wells, so that the cobra would have the capacity to fulfill his craving.
The cobra got insatiable, and let the lord of frogs go. Be that as it may even after his on edge hold up for a few days, the ruler of frogs did not return.
After quite a while of holding up, the cobra asked for a female reptile that lived in the dividers of the well, to demand the ruler of frogs to return, as he couldn’t bear the division of his dear companion.
The reptile passed on the message to the ruler of frogs, who answered, “Madam, please pass on to him that I will stay away for the indefinite future to the well once more. He is starved, and a starving individual can be pitiless, and go to any degree of sin.”
Hence, the ruler of frogs spared himself, and the eager cobra needed to die inside the well with no sustenance.
