The Cock’s Ruse





On a summer afternoon when the Sun shone bright, all animals complained about the heat. The Sun felt very hurt. He stopped coming out, making the Earth cold and dark. The animals immediately sent their messenger, the cock to enquire. When asked the reason for not showing up, the Sun replied, “I shine throughout the day to give you light and all you do is complain about how hot I am. I refuse to shine again.” “Which means I have to return home in the dark, while the wild cat prepares to pounce on me, “ lamented the cock. The cock flew away and after some time the Sun heard a loud call. Immediately, the Sun rose up and the entire Earth shone bright. However, the Sun could not find the cock anywhere. Since then, whenever the cock calls out, the Sun promptly shines bright.
