Strategy of the Jackal

Updated on September 23, 2019

The Jackal Strategy

Once upon a time in the deep forests there lived a jackal that was very wise. He would survive the harsh conditions of the forest with his wit and cunningness. So once there was a famine in the forest and the food and water was scanty. The jackal was very hungry as he has not eaten for many days. One day he saw a dead elephant. He was very happy to see the dead elephant because he thought hey god has given him food for many days. When he started to eat the elephant he found that elephant’s skin is too thick for his teeth and he can not pierce the skin from his teeth. He was thinking what to do then suddenly a lion came that way. Jackal was wise and knew lions only eat the flesh of animals they kill. So he said to the lion,” Oh the mighty king of the forest, the protector of all animals, I am keeping the vigil of the dead elephant for you. Please fill your tummy.”

Lion said, “This is very nice of you but you know I only eat the animal I kill so you can have this elephant and satisfy hunger of your family.” With this lion went this way.

Jackal was very happy hearing this as this took care of lion problem. But as soon as the Lion went, he saw tiger little away. He thought well tiger might not be easy to fool and if I try to fight him on elephant, he would kill me. So he thought of a plan and met the tiger half way through. He asked tiger,” Uncle, what are you doing in the area of death. King lion has killed this elephant and asked me to keep vigil on it and he has gone to his den for some work. King has ordered me to tell him if any tiger comes this way and try to eat elephant. So I would request you to go away.”

Tiger was clearly afraid to listen to this and begged Jackal to not to tell lion that he came this way. As soon as tiger left a leopard came that way. Jackal thought Leopard has sharp teeth and he can easily pierce through the skin of the elephant. So he said, “Oh son, the king has killed this elephant and has ordered me to keep watch on this elephant , as he had to go to his den for some urgent business. But since you are like my son so you can help yourself with feast.”

Leopard said,” Oh wish jackal, your offer is tempting especially in days of very less food but since The mighty lion has killed him, I dare not touch it as I want to live long.”

Jackal said, “Don’t worry my son, I would alert you as soon as I see lion approaching. And I would put the blame on jaguar.”

Leopard was very happy to hear this and attacked the elephant. When Leopard tore of the skin of the elephant jackal shouted that lion is coming so leopard ran away from there, leaving elephant ready to eat for jackal.

Now suddenly another Jackal came, who was same in strength as the other Jackal. So this wise jackal suddenly remembered the famous lines that crush equals with power. So he attacked the other jackal and killed him.

Moral: Always think during time of adversity because brain is mightier than strength.

Do you think the story has nice moral
