The Jackal who Saved the Lion

Once upon a time, there was a lion in a forest. One day, when he went to drink water in a river, one of his feet got stuck into the damp mushy mud of the river. He tried a lot to get out of the mud, but didn’t achieve. He had to lie without food for days because he didn’t find any help. On one fortunate day, a kind jackal came to drink water from the river. When he saw the lion, he went closer to the lion and said, ”What is the matter? Why are you resting here?”

The lion narrated him the pathetic story. The jackal instantly made away out from the sand but the lion was unable to move his feet. As he was sad in the same posture for last several days, his body became stiff. The jackal understood the condition of the lion and helped him to get out the mud with an extra effort. The lion was really thankful to jackal for his kind help. He was very happy to get free after so many days.

The lion appreciated the effort made by the jackal. He offered the jackal to live close to him and also promised to give the food to him whenever he caught food. The jackal accepted the offer and started living with the lion. Thus, they lived happily sharing the food. With the passing time, they expanded their families. The lion had cubs and the jackal had kid jackals. Both the lion and the jackal were passing their days happily. They didn’t have any idea that their friendship was not like by their families.

One day after a long time, the lioness, lady of the lion’s house, told her cubs that she didn’t like the amity between the jackal and her husband. The cubs passed the message to the kid jackals. The kid complained the matter to the lady jackal. The lady jackal passed the complaint to her husband.

The jackal went to the lion and asked, “I helped you without ant thought in return. You had me to live with you, so I started living with you. Now if you don’t want me to live with you, you should have told me yourself. What did you involve your wife and cubs to convey this?”. The lion was shocked to hear such words. He said, ”My dear friend, what are you saying? I don’t find any problems with you or your friendship”. He assured the jackal that he had no such ill-feelings for their friendship between them.

The lion also assured that he would talk to the lioness and solve the whole mater. The jackal was intelligent and understood the situation. He said to the lion, ”Dear friend, I know you are sincere, but our families couldn’t exactly respond the same level of friendship. So, let’s us stay apart and meet often as friends”.

First, ads are nuisance. They go for a long time and there are so many. Sometimes there seems to be more ads than programs.

Second, ads are a bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to buy unhealthy food like beer, soft drink, candy, and chips. And they make people want things they do not really need and cannot afford.

Finally, the people who make ads have too much say in what programme people watch. That is because they want to put all their ads on popular programmer that a lot of people watch.
