A farmer was ploughing his fields. “Why are you so lazy?” he asked his water-buffalo pulling the plough. “You are very slow and you have no strength. Look how quick and strong the tiger is! If only you could be like that.”
“Do you really think the tiger is stronger than I? Take me to one now and I shall show you,” replied the water-buffalo. He was angry that his master thought he was lazy.
