Dividing the Bread/Two Rats and the Monkey
Once two rats found a loaf of bread. They could not agree within themselves to divide the bread. Because each of them wanted the larger share of it. They quarreled for some time on this. But at last one of the rats suggested to go to the monkey who had a scale. So they went to the monkey to divide the bread piece properly.
The cunning monkey divided the piece in such a way that it was not equally divided. Then he cut a small part of a piece and ate that instantly which was larger than the other. Again, the dishes of the scale were unequal and the monkey ate another small part of the larger portion. He continued this method and the bread piece became smaller gradually. The rats understood the monkey’s crafty trick and ordered the monkey to stop that. The monkey stopped his deception but claimed the rest of the bread as his charge.
