Shyam, is there anything special in our garden? the king asked. `My Lord! nothing of greater importance. But often a deer comes there to graze.'

The deer was golden

`can you bring that deer to the palace?'
`why not? please give me little honey. I shall pour it at the place where it comes. Let me see what will happen.'
The king gave him a pot full of honey.
The gardener took it and poured honey at a selected place.
The deer came as usual. He found the grass sweeter. The deer sat there eating grass. The gardener waited and he too gave little grass. Then slowly he brought it to the palace and kept it is a room.
The deer saw people in the palace and understood that he has come to a different place. The deer was golden.

He came to know that the deer has come as he was given sweet grass.

The king got the information. He came to know that the deer has come as he was given sweet grass.
`Usually deers do not come to a place where human live. even if it comes, it won't stay for long time. Again it won't come. But the deer has come here seeking sweet grass. it is natural. Man is also similar. He follows the other man seeking money, gold and land. The deer has taught a lesson to me. This deer in my friend. I should release him' thus the king felt and he sent it to forest.

Not only us but even other species can be lured into a trap but they are comfortable in their natural habitat as rightly decided by the king. Thanks Rukmini - siva
