Once upon a time, there was a monkey who lived on a tree, which bore juicy red apples. One fine day, a crocodile came swimming in a pond near the tree. He asked the monkey to give him something to eat, as he was very angry.The monkey offered him the juicy fruit. The crocodile enjoyed the offering and started coming regularly. Soon they became best friends. With the regular meetings of the crocodile and the monkey, the crocodile's wife got jealous. She decided to kill the monkey. She told a lie to her husband that she was very ill and would recover only after eating the heart of a healthy monkey. Out of love for his wife, the crocodile agreed to bring his friend's heart. Next day, he went to meet the monkey and said that his wife had invited him to their house, as she wanted to meet him. The monkey readily agreed and sat on the back of the crocodile. On their way, the crocodile sank. The monkey asked for the reason of his sobbing, and the crocodile confessed the truth. Bewildered by the truth, the clever monkey said to the crocodile that he had left his heart back on the tree. He asked him to turn back so that he could get his heart. The dumb crocodile agreed and the monkey jumped on the tree and saved himself.
