Modern Stories : The Mule

The Mule

Let us enjoy reading this one of Modern Stories of The Mule.

Once upon a time there was a farmer.

He had a mule. That mule was old and of no use. One day that mule fell in the well.

The former decided to bury that mule in the well. With the help of his neighbors, he started putting sand in the well. At first that mule was angry but then he shook off sand from his back and stepped up and up on the layer of sand.

After a long time he reached the top of the well and was out of it.

Moral: Do not be afraid of troubles. Shake it off. Each trouble is a stepping stone and one can get out of it.

It’s no accident that the founders of religions have been storytellers. Christ had his parables, Mohammed had his teaching of tales and the Buddha had his Jataka Tales.English literature more or less begins with Chaucer’s Tales of Canterbury, essentially a book of stories told on the road. All of which is very interesting and intriguing.
