Once upon a time, there was a huge forest where many animals used to live. They all were very happily and merrily living. One day a huge Lion came to the forest. Being the King of the forest, he started making animals his prey.

All the animals were helpless. One day they pleaded the lion, not to kill animals like this. Listing to them, the Lion replied “Okay, I will not kill you all like this, but what about my hunger”. They all discussed and said “O King Lion, if you will not fetch us harshly then on a daily basis one one animal will come to you, for being your prey”.

Lion agreed to this and all the animals went away. The process started, and daily one animal was killed. Everyone was very sad of this. On the meantime, there also lived a rabbit in the forest. Seeing the sad faces of his friends, he thought some idea to get rid of this.

On the next day, the rabbit told; today I will go to the Lion. He discussed the plan and all the animals contented for this. On that day, he reached to the Lion very late. Lion was very hungry and he shouted in anger “Why are you late, want me to kill all your friends or what”.

The clever rabbit replied in a very low voice “No my lord, I was on the way and saw a much bigger and fierce Lion than you”. The lion was very egoist and replied “What are you saying you small creature, bigger lion than me”.

Rabbit said “Yes majesty and he was also saying that he is the king of this forest”. The Lion raised in anger and said “Take me to that Lion, I want to kill him now”. Clever rabbit took that Lion in front of a well and said “O King, that another Lion stays inside he well”.

The Lion stood over the well and said “Who is inside, come out I want to fight with you”. The well was filled with water and in water the Lion saw his own reflection. The Lion was so fool that he thought the reflection to be the another lion.

He again shouted, and the reflection too moved the same. The Lion thought as the well lion is beckoning him. In anger he jumped into the well, thinking to fight. The water was too deep that he drowned in the water.

So in this way all the animals were freed from the torture of that Lion. All the animals were overwhelmed, thanked to the rabbit and again lived happily after.
