The Story

Once upon a time, there was a jungle where many animals lived. Lion and Boar were among them. It was a hot summer day. The lion felt very thirsty. He went to drink the water in a pond where the boar was already present to drink water from the same pond.

Seeing this, the lion roared, “I am the king of the jungle, I will drink water first, you have to wait till I quench my thirst.” After listening to the lion, the boar said, “I don't care, I came here first so it is my chance to drink the water first. Let me quench my thirst first.”

The lion was infuriated after listening to the boar and warned him to get away from the pond. Boar said, “Try to stop me if you think you are powerful. But I will drink the water first.” An argument soon turned into a massive fight. They both were strong and wild animals. Both hits kicked and bit each other. The fight was terrible.
