The Jackal And The Drum Story

Once upon a time there was a jackal in the jungle. One day, while looking for something to eat, he saw a big drum under a tree. The wind blew a tender branch from the tree which hit the drum and made a drumbeat sound. Hearing this, the jackal beat the drum twice. He made the same kind of sound both times. The jackal figured that there must be an animal inside the drum that would serve him as a very tasty meal. But the top of the drum was too hard for him to pull off.

He continued to beat and strum the drum for some time. There was a leopard hanging around nearby. He heard the drum beat and walked towards the sound. The jackal saw the leopard and told him about the animal that was hiding inside the drum. The leopard itself was very hungry. So, with its strong jaws and sharp claws, it ripped open the top of the drum. But, there was nothing inside. The leopard was extremely angry at the jackal for tricking him when he was so hungry. It then bounced off the jackal and ate it.
