Collection of Story 01
God created the DONKEY and told him: “You will work tirelessly from sun-up to sundown, carrying heavy bags, you will eat grass, you will have intelligence and you will live for 50 years than you will be DONKEY. But Donkey answered: 50 Years are too long please give me only 20 years. Complained to God.
God created DOG and told him: You will be look after in Man’s house and you will be their best friend. You will eat whatever he gives you, you will live for 25 years and you will be a DOG. Dog answered: 25 years are too long me. I will be a dog please give me 10 years only. Complained to God.
God created MONKEY and told him: You will jump from branch to branch, you will do silly things, be amusing, than you will live for 20 years and you will be a MONKEY. Monkey answered: 20 Years are too long; just give me 10 years only.
Finally God created A MAN and told him: You will be a MAN, you only rational being on the earth, you will use your intelligence to control other animals. You will do dominate the world and you will live for 21 years. The Man answered: God! I will be Man, 21 years are not enough me, Why not give me all years refused by other animals, after some consideration. God decided to grant of Man complaint.
As a result, Man today lives for 21 years as a man, and then he marries and spends for 30 years like a donkey, working and carrying heavy loads. Then when his children are grown and gone, he spends for 15 years looking after his house and eating whatever is given to him. Finally, when he grows old, he retires and spends the next 10 years like a monkey, jumping from house to house or from children to children, doing silly things to amuse the grandchildren.
