The crocodile persuaded his friend to accompany him. But the monkey was not a swimmer and therefore he rode on the crocodile’s back. They set out. When they came in midstream the crocodile disclosed his evil plan. The monkey was taken aback to hear the crocodile’s plan. He said he had left his heart behind on the tree. As he returned to the river bank, he climbed up the tree.
