On the way of foreign land, the Brahmin met lion the king of forest. Brahmin hid his nose and thumbs and saluted to Lion. The lion was pleased. The lion asked to Brahmin for his tour. The Brahmin told the reality. The lion gave the Brahmin gold coins.
      Brahmin returned to his village and engaged his daughter with suitable groom. Brahmin went to forest for inviting the lion for the occasion of his daughter marriage. The lion accepted the invitation. However, the lion said that if he (lion) comes in open all human beings would run away. The lion advised the Brahmin to put him (lion) into a close room. The lion told to Brahmin after the marriage, Brahmin could out him (lion).
      As per advice from the lion, Brahmin put the lion inside room. The guests asked Brahmin about animal inside the room. The Brahmin told that there was his dog inside the room.
  When nobody was there, Brahmin went inside the room to get out the lion. The lion asked the Brahmin to wound him by heavy axe. Brahmin refused to do so as the lion helped the Brahmin and the lion was his guest too. However, the lion insisted that the Brahmin should wound lion’s back by heavy axe. Brahmin had to would the back of lion by heavy axe. The lion ran towards the forest.
 After a year, Brahmin was visiting his daughter’s in law village. The Brahmin saw the same lion on the way. The lion showed his completely healed wound to the Brahmin. Brahmin was very pleased to see that the lion is fine. The lion said to Brahmin,” The physical wound by axe is healed. However, the wound by your remark ‘my dog is inside the room’ always bites me. This wound by bad words wouldn’t heal ever.”
Brahmin felt sorry that even in good sense, ‘we should not use sharp or  bad words for others.’ The Brahmin saluted the lion again.
