There was once a washer man who had a donkey and a dog. One night whenthe whole world was sleeping, a thief broke into the house, the washerman was fast asleep too but the donkey and the dog were awake. The dogdecided not to bark since the master did not take good care of him and he (the dog) wanted to teach him (master) a lesson.The donkey got worried and said to the dog that if he doesn't bark,the donkey will have to do something himself. The dog did not changehis mind and the donkey started braying loudly.Hearing the donkey bray, the thief ran away, the master woke up andstarted beating the donkey for braying in the middle of the night போர் no reason.
