Do not lie, otherwise one day you will be trapped in your own lies.

Kaalu, a shepherd boy loved playing pranks on others. One day, while taking his sheep for grazing in the forest, one trick stuck his mind, “I’m getting bored. Let me play some prank and have fun.” He stood on a pile of rocks and started to shout, “help, somebody please help! a tiger has attacked my herd. It’ll kill me also.” Nearby villagers ran up to his rescue. But when they reached the venue they saw only Kaalu laughing away to glory. They scolded Kaalu for the prank and returned. Next day, Kaalu again applied the same trick. Villagers were again furious. But, Kaalu was too selfish to see other’s plight.
One day a real tiger entered his herd and started slaughtering his sheep. Kaalu was scared. Quickly he climbed the rock and shouted for help. “Help, help! a tiger is killing my sheep.”
“Forget it”, thought the villagers. “He again is fooling us, let’s not waste our time on it,” consulted the villagers and no one went for Kaalu’s rescue. Poor Kaalu became victim of his own lies.
