All monkeys followed the suggestion given by the leader. By evening all the plants in the garden were lying on the ground.

Fools give trouble

The gardener wa happy. He thanked the monkey and left the place.
The monkey called his friends and said! `Friends, we have an important job to attend. The gardener has gone out to attend the fair. He will come in the evening. By that time we have to put water to all the plants'.
One of the monkeys asked how to commence the work.
The leader monkey said, `Go, all of you bring mugs'.
All the monkeys brought mugs. The leader monkey told them to fill water in the mugs. The monkeys filled water in the respective mugs.
Then one of the monkeys asked, `It is all-right. There are few small plants and few plants are big. Please tell us how much water is to be put each plant?
`It is not a tough job. Pluck each plant. see to what depth the root has gone. Put water according to the size of the root. Put less water to the roots of lesser length. Similarly put more water to the roots of larger length' the leader monkey said.
All monkeys followed the suggestion given by the leader. By evening all the plants in the garden were lying on the ground.
The gardener reached the garden in the evening. He was unable to find out where his garden is.
The gardener called the monkey and said, `You fool! What have you done? I told you to put water to the plants. But you have removed all the plants. What would be my plight?'
`See, we have put water according to the need of the plants, that's all' the monkey said and ran away.
`Fools give trouble. If the king comes to know the plight of the garden he would not leave me' the gardener said to himself. He was in distress.
