Short Story in Hindi – King and foolish Monkey

Posted on 23. Apr, 2012 by in Hindi Language

Today, I will present you another fable from a very famous series of animal fables from ancient India which is called Panchatantra (पञ्चतन्त्र – Five Principles) that we discussed in previous post on short stories. What amaze me the most about these over 2 thousand year stories is, 1) human behavior and nature is well portrayed through the selected animal characters in each tale 2) the teachings are still applicable to the present day world.

I have selected an interesting story to hone your vocabulary and even the moral of story is good, which tell that there is no goodness or advantage in employing a foolish servant. One day or another, he or she will do more harm than all good service combined.

As usual, I have provided the vocabulary at the bottom for your reference. So, let’s begin the story.

एक समय की बात थी, एक राजा ने एक पालतू बन्दर को अपने सेवक के रूप में रखा हुआ था। जहाँ – जहाँ राजा जाता, वह बन्दर भी उसके साथ जाता। राजा के दरबार में उस बन्दर को राजा का पालतू होने के कारण कोई रोक – टोक नहीं थी। एक गर्मी के मौसम के एक दिन राजा अपने शयन पर विश्राम कर रहा था। वह बन्दर भी शयन के पास बैठ कर राजा को एक पंखे से हवा कर रहा था। तभी एक मक्खी आई और राजा की छाती पर आकर बेठ गयी। जब बन्दर ने उस मक्खी को बेठा देखा तो उसने उसे उड़ाने का प्रयास किया। हर बार वो मक्खी उडती और थोड़ी देर बाद फिर राजा की छाती पर आ कर बेठ जाती। यह देख कर बन्दर गुस्से से लाल हो गया। गुस्से में उसने मक्खी को मारने की ठानी। फिर वो बन्दर मक्खी को मारने के लिए हथियार ढूडने लगा। कुछ दूर ही उसे राजा की तलवार दिखाई दी। उसने वो तलवार उठाई और गुस्से में मक्खी को करने के लिए पूरे बल से तलवार राजा की छाती पर मार दी। इससे पहले की तलवार मक्खी को लगती, मक्खी वहाँ से उड़ गयी। बन्दर के बल से किये गए वार से मक्खी तो नहीं मरी मगर उससे राजा की मृत्यु अवश्य हो गयी।

 

इसलिए कहते है कि मूर्ख को अपना सेवक बनाने में कोई भलाई नहीं!
