The Brahmin and the Three Rogues

This is classic story from Vikas books.

This is a story of dog, donkey and goat.

One morning a Brahmin was walking along a lonely path. He had a goat with him. Three rogues saw the Brahmin and his goat.

One of the rogues said, “I wish we could get this plump goat from him.”

Another one said, “Let us run away with the goat. This fat Brahmin can’t chase us.”

The third one said, “There is no need of running away. I have a brilliant idea.” And he told his friends the trick that he had in his mind. They liked the trick very much. They decided to try the trick on the Brahmin.

So, one of the rogues went to the Brahmin and said, “Good morning, Sir. This dog of yours looks very smart. Is he a trained dog?”

The Brahmin looked at the man angrily and said, “Go away, stupid fellow. It is really funny that you mistake a goat for a dog.”

“Will you consider me a wise man if I say that your dog is a goat? HA! HA! HA!” said the rogue and went away.

After a while, another rogue came to the Brahmin and said, “Good morning, learned Sir. I wonder why you are walking when you can very well ride on this pony of yours.”

The Brahmin said, “My goodness! Do you think this goat is a pony?” “I thought you were a learned Brahmin. But now I understand that you are a fathead who knows no difference between a pony and a goat,” said the rogue and walked away.

Sometime later, the Brahmin was approached by the third rogue. The third rogue said, “Good morning, holy priest. Why have you selected this donkey as your fellow traveller?” The Brahmin asked nervously, “Is this animal a donkey?”

“Of course, it is,” said the rogue in an asserting tone. Now the Brahmin was very much frightened. He thought that the goat was really a monster who changed his form from time to time. So he ran away, leaving the goat behind.

The three rogues laughed heartily and took the goat in their possession.


Moral:

Don’t change your opinion simply because others do not agree with you.
