This is a story of crocodile, deer and river.

Moral(s) of the story: smartness

There was once a river that flowed through a deep forest. There lived a handsome, clever deer on one bank of the river. A crocodile lived in the river. He was horrific. One day, the crocodile saw the deer and from that day, he wanted to catch him.

The deer was passing by the river one day and he saw red delicious berries on the opposite bank of the river. He was mesmerized by the berries and said, “I wish I could go across and eat them.” The deer only thought of the berries the whole day. He wanted to go on the opposite bank but if he entered the water, the wicked crocodile and his friends would eat him.

He thought of a plan. He went near the river and shouted, “Hey Mr. Crocodile!” On hearing the deer’s voice, the crocodile came and said, “What happened? Why are you calling me?”. The deer said that the king had arranged a buffet and had invited all of them to eat and enjoy. He said that there will be lots of delicious food.

“The king is inviting us?” the crocodile asked excitedly. The deer replied, “Yes! The king has called me to count the crocodiles in the river. Please call all the crocodiles in the river and tell them to line up one behind the other so that I can count them.”

After hearing about the buffet, all the crocodiles obeyed and stood in a line. The crocodile asked the deer to proceed the counting. The deer said, “I will count by climbing on your back. You will not eat me. If you will then I will not be able to report the king and you all will not be invited for the party.”

The crocodiles were so excited about the buffet that they said, “No, we will not eat you. We promise.” The deer jumped from one crocodile to another counting them and finally reached the other side of the river. As soon as he reached there, he said, “Thank you crocodile for your help. This will now be my new home.” The deer immediately ran off and the crocodiles were angry and annoyed.

And so, in this way, by using his wit, the deer was able to overcome the obstacles of the crocodiles. He lived happily in his new home, feasting on delicious berries and fruits every day.
