Aesop's Fables THE DOLPHIN AND THE LION
THE DOLPHIN AND THE LION
Once, a lion was wandering near the seashore when he saw a dolphin. The lion said to the dolphin, “Hi, I am the king of the jungle and you are the king of the sea. Let us be friends”. Thus, the lion and the dolphin became friends. Some time elapsed. The lion was engaged in a war with a wild bull. The lion cried for dolphin’s help but the dolphin did not come for help. When the battle was over, the bruised lion blamed the dolphin of betrayal. The dolphin said, “I was unable to help. I am a creature of water and I can do nothing once I am on land”. We should choose allies which can come to help us in the moments of crisis.
