                                     TAILOR BIRD AND KING’S TALE

In a corner of the king’s garden was the tailor bird’s nest. The king’s men put all the gold coins oF his treasury to dry in the sun. But in the evening they forgot to put one gold coin back in the chest.

The tailorbird took this coin and kept it in his nest. He thought, “Oh! I’m so rich. I’ve got the same wealth as the king. Since then, he kept on saying, “Whatever wealth is in King’s house, the same wealth is in my house!”

Now the king was extremely angry. “What! How dare it says I’m scared! Go and bring the bird. Fry it and serve me as a dish!” No sooner did the king say this than his men went and brought the poor bird. The king held the bird in his fist and took it to his queens. “Today I’ll eat the fry of this bird,” said the king. As the king left, all seven queens started taking a look at the bird.

In this way, the queens were regretting, when a frog hopped by. All the seven queens’ eyes fell on the frog. They caught hold of it and said, “Sshh! Nobody should know of this. Let us fry it. King will eat this and think he has eaten the tailor bird.”

The queens skinned the frog, fried it, and served the king to eat. The king was very happy to eat it. After that, he went to his courtroom. He sat on his throne and thought, “At last I’ve taught the bird a lesson.” Just then he heard the bird say,

                                                               “What a joy, what a joy!

                                                                The king ate frog fry!”

Hearing this, the king jumped off his throne. He started to spit, vomit, wash his mouth, and whatnot. And then he ordered, “Cut off the noses of all seven queens.” Immediately the executioner went and chopped off the noses of all seven queens.

Seeing this, Tailor Bird said,

                                                 “Tailor Bird hopped and hopped

King said, “Bring the rogue here! Now I’ll swallow it! Let me see how it escapes now!” Tailor Bird was brought. King said, “Bring water!” Water came. King filled his mouth with water. He put the bird in his mouth and swallowed it.

Immediately two hundred people ran out and caught the poor bird and brought it back to the king. Then again they brought water. A soldier came and stood in front of the king with a bare sword in his hand. As soon as the bird flies out of the king’s mouth he’ll cut it into pieces.
