I do not want anything. It is enough if you and your people learn to respect the lives of people and animals. You must not kill animals for your pleasure. I am happy in this forest and that’s all, I want.

My friend, why did you help me when you knew that I was going to kill you?

One day a king went on a hunting trip to the forest. He had not hunted any deer for many days and wanted to kill one during the hunt. He wanted to have the deer’s beautiful and soft skin.

As he went around the forest he spotted a beautiful deer. Its coat was golden and shiny. The king chased it on his horse back. The king shot an arrow but it missed the deer. The second one was dodged by the swift deer. The king’s third arrow was wasted because the deer ducked and lay down.

Fearing for its life, the deer jumped at the king. This sudden attack made the king’s fourth arrow fly in to the air. The deer then ran deeper into the forest.
Now as the forest grew thicker, the deer was not visible. So the king followed its footmarks to trace it. Suddenly the king fell into a deep pond with a loud `Splash!’ the king struggled hard to come out, but to no all avail. Then he started calling for help in desperation. `Help me! Someone get me out of here.’

The deer heard the loud splash and the calls and it realized that the king and fallen into the pond. It hurried back to the king and went to the edge of the pond and said, `Oh! King, you please hold my antlers tightly, and then I will drag you out of the pond.’ The deer tried hard and it finally saved the king fro0m danger.

The king was amazed and asked, `Deer, my friend, why did you help me when you knew that I was going to kill you?’

`That was at the edge of the forest. Here in the deep forest you have lost your men and your way. If I would not help you then some wild animals would like you. At the edge of the forest, you were safe but here you are not. Let me lead you back to your soldiers,’

So the deer took the king out of the forest and left him at his soldiers. Then the king asked, `my friend, you saved my life. What gift do you want from me?’

`I do not want anything. It is enough if you and your people learn to respect the lives of people and animals. You must not kill animals for your pleasure. I am happy in this forest and that’s all, I want.’ With these words the noble deer went away.

nice story.

It's good to let people be themselves and not try to force them to be any different. Let them be happy in their forest....
