One day a lion was in good sleep when a small mouse started jumping on it and playing with its mane. Children, do you know what is 'mane'? Right, it is the hair round the lion's face. Only male lions have the mane round their face while the lioness (female lion) do not have.

While the mouse was jumping and playing on the lion's mane, it suddenly jumped on his nose which irritated the lion and lo! grrr! grrr! what happened? The King of the Jungle woke up and was much irritated as he got disturbed from his good sleep. He saw the little mouse and caught hold of it with anger.

"How dare you disturb my sleep and wake me up?" grumbled the lion. "I will punish you by eating you up", he shouted at the mouse.

"Oh! Great King", said the little creature. "Have mercy on me. I am a little one and you are very mighty. I am sorry for disturbing your sleep. Believe me, I didn't jump on your nose purposely but by chance I happen to jump. I beg pardon. Please let me go and I promise to help you when you are in need", pleaded the little mouse.

On hearing these sympathetic words of the little mouse, the lion felt sorry for it and let it go. The mouse was extremely happy, thanked the lion for excusing him and went its way.

After few days, the same lion was caught in a hunter's net. He couldn't move and was helplessly roaring in a loud voice. Children, do you know what is 'roar'? Right, the sound made by a lion is called a 'roar'.

The little mouse heard the helpless roaring cry of the lion and came running to the spot to see what happened. To its surprise, the mouse saw the big lion trapped in the hunter's net and crying for help. The little mouse now got a chance to repay. Immediately, it went near the lion and said in a determined voice, "I am happy that I got an opportunity to show my gratitude to you. Don't worry my friend, I will release you from this net", said the mouse.

The mouse started nibbling the nest and thus made a big hole in it. The King of the Jungle who was helpless a few minutes back, now was extremely happy to be free again. The lion felt very happy as the little creature kept its promise without breaking it. Thus, the big lion and the little mouse became thick friends.

So, children what do we learn from this story?

First, never punish others in a fit of anger, that too when it is not their mistake, as they might be of great help for us in future.

Second, no one is too small in this world and even the smallest of the small has its own strength to help the mightiest of the mighty.

Lastly, never ever forget to repay the help. If someone helps you today, don't forget it but help them when they need your help.

Isn't this really a wonderful story ? It teaches us a good lesson to maintain a cordial relationship in the society for a peaceful co-existence.
