Panchatantra: The Cows And The Lion

Once upon a time, there lived four cows in a dense forest. They were very close friends and always stood by each other in times of need. Whenever some wild animal tried to attack them, all of them got together and chased them away. So, no animal in the forest, dared to attack them.

There lived a big lion in that forest who wished to kill and eat the cows. He had tried several times to attack them, but as always all four of them had chased him away. He understood that it was not possible for him to kill any one of them till they were united.

So, he started to think of ways to separate them. Finally, he hatched a devious plan. He started spreading rumours and telling false tales in the forest about the cows. With the help of some other animals, he was soon able to pitch the cows against one another. A huge rift was created between the cows and they started abhorring each other. The lion was elated to see his plan working.

After a few days, the lion attacked one of the cows. The other cows did not come to help their former friend, even after seeing that she was being attacked

by the lion. After some more days, the lion killed another cow.  And then, the remaining two cows also had to face the same fate.

This shows that if we are united, no one will be able to do anything to us.
