In ancient times Magadha was a pond named Fullotpal in the country. Two swan lived in that pond, one was named Sankat and the other was Vikat. There was also a turtle with both of them, whose name was Kambu Griva.
All three friends were living a very comfortable life. A few days later some fishermen came to the pond. They will say – “We will kill fish and turtles etc.”.
Turtle hearing this, asked to both his friends – “Friends, both of you have listened to fishermen? What should I do now? Both of you will fly away and I get stuck here.” Both swans started saying- “Whatever will be right in the morning”. Then the tortoise said – “Do not do it, save me, do the same way that I can go to another lake.” Both swans started saying, “Now what can we both do?”
Turtle took a remedy and said – “I wish to go from sky to second place with you both”. Both swan said with surprise- “But, how is this possible?” Then the tortoise said – “Both of you take a piece of wood in your beak, I will grab the middle part of that piece of wood with your mouth and both of you hold that stove from both sides and thus we all will go to the other pond. “
Then both swans speak – this remedy sounds fine but there is a danger here too. People will say something by looking at us while you are taking them, if you answer their talk then your death is certain. Because your mouth will open and you will fall down and be killed and eaten by them. Then the tortoise speaks – do you see me mad? I will not do anything like that. I will not answer at all. I will not say anything. Please come with me, otherwise the fishermen will kill me. So do as I speak.
Then both the swans catch the wooden sticks from both sides and in the middle the turtle was holding the wood. Thus the three were flying by flying sky. On the way people looked and started running behind them. While running behind them, he said, “Hey, great surprise! A turtle is flying with friends!” Someone began to say, “If the turtle falls down somehow, then I will cook it here and the other person says,” I will cook by eating on the banks of the lake “. Then someone started saying” I will take home and eat “.
Turtle got angry at this point and he did not see any tear and cracking “U all eat the ashes”. What was just that, at the same moment, the turtle’s mouth was cut off by a wooden stick and it fell down on the earth. Cowherds, that is, the people killed that turtle and cooked it and ate it.
That is why it has been said that, who does not accept the word of friends who want goodness, it is destroyed like a wicked withered turtle fallen from the wood.
So this story gets this education that we should say something only after looking at the right time. Should not speak more like fools.
