Once upon a time there lived a pair of crows on a huge tree. They had laid eggs in a nest on the tree. When the crows went in search of food, the snake crawled up the
tree and ate some of the eggs. When the crows came back, they were shocked to find some eggs missing. Whenever the crows laid eggs, the snake ate up all the
eggs. The crows got fed up and decided to ask their friend, the wise fox for advice. The fox came up with a plan. “In the morning, go to the river bank,” he said. “When the ladies from the royal family come to bath, just pick up one of their necklace and drop it into the snake’s hole.” Next morning, the female crow did as advised. Seeing this, the royal guards chased the crow and reached the snake’s hole. When the snake came out, one of the guards took out his spear and killed the snake. The crows lived happily ever after on the tree.
