Familiarity Ends Fear
Once a fox-cub was roaming alone in the forest. He had heard about lions, tigers and leopards from his parents but had never seen them. Anyhow he had been told some clues in order to recognize them.
The fox-cub knew that a lion has thick and long hairs on his neck; leopard has spots all over its body while a tiger has stripes on its body. All of a sudden, the cub heard the roar of a lion. He was extremely scared and hid himself behind a bush. Soon, the lion appeared and the cub was almost half-dead seeing his fearful eyes.
Few days later, the cub saw the lion once again. Still he was scared but nominally. But when the cub saw the lion for the third time, his fear had totally vanished. So, he went to the lion and said, “Good morning, sir. I am your humble servant- the fox.”
The lion returned the wish in a friendly manner.
