One day, a donkey found a lion’s skin.
He put it on and looked at his reflection in the river.” Wow! I look just like a lion! No one can say that it is me, I must take advantage of this” the donkey said to himself.
The donkey wore the skin and marched into the village. Seeing a lion in the village, the villagers got scared and started running. They left their stores and kiosks open. The villagers have left their food and belongings out here in the open.
The donkey ate as much as he wanted to grab his loot and went back into the jungle. For the next few days, he relaxed and enjoyed what he had brought from the village.
