THE ELEPHANT AND THE TAILOR

The elephant,it is said, is endowed with great memory and deep gratitude.

In a certain town, a tamed elephant used to go rounds, door-to-door, every morning as the recipints of many eatables preferred to his trunk. However, when any any resident used to say "please go away" the elephant used to turn away, like a gentleman.

One of the regular patorn was a tailor.

However the tailor behaved rather out-of-turn on one occasion. For it was the busy seasonfor marriages and tailors hands were literally full with urgent assignments.

And when the elephant, in spite of being told to go away by his regular pattorn, he waited for a long while, hoping against hope.

The work harried tailor there upon stuck deep his needke into the out stretched trunk of the elephant. Having had apprantly learnt his lesson, the elephant went away.

And next morning, the elephant returned as usual and stretched out his trunk.

But before the tailor could offer something, the revenge full eleplhant raised the trunk and sprinkled muddy water all over the new dress that were being prepared.

The elephant, with his prodigious memory remembered the insult and came back loaded with muddy water, with the express purpose of awarding punishment to the tailor.
