Once there was a liar shepherd who tended his sheep by the side of a deep forest. To enjoy himself and to befool the people he shouted, “Tiger, tiger, please help me.” People would come running to help him. Then the shepherd would begin to laugh and say that he only played with them. Being disgusted the people would go back. Though the shepherd was a great liar. Many a time the shepherd did this trick. He enjoyed himself making fun with people. The villagers lost their faith in the shepherd. One day a tiger came and tore him to pieces. This time the shepherd cried out for help, but none came to help. He tried up the tree but failed. The tiger attacked very swiftly and killed him. When the people found him as a dead body, they had nothing to do. I think that sometimes we create tragedy in our life. The same thing happened in the shepherd’s life. If he didn’t tell a lie shouting ‘Tiger.’ People would come running and perhaps he might avoid the danger. So, we should not tell a lie even for making fun.


Punishment of a Liar

Once upon a time, there lived a shepherd boy in a village. He was a great liar and had a bad habit to tell lies. Every day he kept a flock of sheep near a forest. In the forest, there lived different beast animals. One day he made a plan to make fun of the villagers. After some time, he started shouting, “Wolf! Wolf! Help!” Hearing his shouting the villagers started rushing to save the boy with sticks, spears, and tools. But they found no wolf. Seeing the villagers the boy started laughing at them. So, the villagers became annoyed with him and they returned to their duties. The liar shepherd made the same fun to the villagers far and between. The villagers would come forward to protect the boy and return home with annoyance. But one day a wolf came. The shepherd shouted in his high voice to get escape from the wolf but the villagers did not extend their helping hand. They did not come to rescue the boy. The wolf killed all the sheep of the boy and the boy asked for help again and again but nobody came. They thought he was cheating again with them. At that time the wolf killed the boy. The poor unfortunate shepherd lost his life only for telling lies.
