                  THE LION THAT HAD BAD BREATH.

One morning, when the mighty lion was just waking up, he yawned a great big yawn. He roared a great big roar to let all of the other animals know that he was awake. You see, the lion was the king of all the animals. "Oh my," said the lioness. "You have morning breath!" The lion roared in dismay. "I am the king! I am perfect!" As he walked along he met a donkey. "Tell me true, do I have morning breath?" he roared into the donkey's face. "Whew!" said the donkey. "Indeed you do." The lion was insulted and immediately killed the donkey. Next the lion met a leopard and asked him the same question. Knowing that the lion had just killed the donkey because of his answer, the leopard replied, "Oh great sir, your breath is as sweet as the morning dew. Your breath is as delightful as the finest flower. Your breath is finer than the finest perfume." Again the lion roared in anger. "You are making fun of me, the mighty king!" So he killed the leopard too. The fox had seen everything that happened. The lion turned to him and asked, "Fox, do I have morning breath?" Now everyone knows that a fox is a clever animal. The fox took a deep breath and with a slight cough he replied, "Oh mighty king, I am sorry. Much as I would like to answer your question, I cannot. You see, I have a cold. I cannot smell anything right now." The lion answered, "I hope that you are feeling better soon." The lion went on his way.

Grade4- Practice Comprehension

Mowgli is a young boy. He has lived with a pack of wolves in the jungle since he was a baby. Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear have been his friends and teachers. One day, Mowgli is captured by the monkeys and taken to their home on the edge of the jungle. Bagheera and Baloo, with the help of Kaa the rock python come to rescue him. 

The cloud hid the moon and, as Mowgli wondered what would come next, he heard Bagheera's light feet on the terrace. The black panther had raced up the slope almost without a sound and was striking – he knew better than to waste time in biting – right and left among the monkeys who were seated around Mowgli in circles of fifty and sixty deep. There was a howl of fright and rage and then, as Bagheera tripped on the rolling, kicking bodies beneath him, a monkey shouted, 'There is only one here! Kill him! Kill!' A scuffling mass of monkeys, biting, scratching, tearing and pulling, closed over Bagheera, while five or six laid hold of Mowgli dragged him up the wall of the summer house and pushed him through the hole in the broken dome. A man-trained boy would have been badly bruised for the fall was a good fifteen feet, but Mowgli fell as Baloo had taught him to fall and he landed on his feet.

Then from the ruined wall nearest the jungle rose up the rumbling war-shout of Baloo ….. 'Bagheera,' he shouted, 'I am here. I climb! I haste! Ahuwora ! The stones slip under my feet!' ….. He panted up the terrace only to disappear to the head in a wave of monkeys, but he threw himself squarely on his haunches, and, spreading out his forepaws, hugged as many as he could hold, and then began to hit with regular bat-bat-bat, like the flipping strokes of a paddle wheel. A crash and a splash told Mowgli that Bagheera had fought his way to the tank where the monkeys could not follow …..

Kaa had only just worked his way over the west wall, landing with a wrench that dislodged a coping stone into a ditch. He had no intention of losing any advantage of the ground, and coiled and uncoiled himself once or twice, to be sure that every foot of his long body was in working order. All that while the fight with Baloo went on, and the monekys yelled in the tank around Bagheera ….. Then Kaa came straight, quickly and anxious to kill. The fighting strength and weight of his body ….a python four or five feet long can knock a man down if he hits him fairly in the chest, and Kaa was thirty feet long, as you know. His first stroke was delivered into the heart of the crowd round Baloo ….. And then there was no need of a second. The monkeys scattered with cries of 'Kaa! It is Kaa ! Run! Run!'

Spreading Goodwill


I was in town recently and took a ride in a taxi with a friend. When we got out of the cab, my friend said to the driver, "Thank you for the ride. You did a superb job of driving."

The taxi driver was stunned for a second. Then he said, "Are you a wise guy or something?"
"No, my dear man, and I am not putting you on. I admire the way you keep your cool in heavy traffic."

"Yeh," the driver said and drove off. "What was that all about?" I asked.

"I am trying to bring love back," he said. "It's the only thing that can save the city." "How can one man save the city?"

"It's not one man. I believe I have made that taxi driver's day. Suppose he has twenty fares. He's going to be nice to those fares because someone was nice to him. Those fares in turn will be kinder to their employees or shopkeepers or waiters or even their own families. They, in turn, will be nicer to other people. Eventually the goodwill could spread to at least a thousand people. Now that isn bad, is it?"

"But you're depending on that taxi driver to pass your goodwill to other."

"I'm not depending on it." My friend said. I'm aware that the system isn't foolproof. I might deal with ten different people today. If, out of ten, I can make three happy, then eventually I can indirectly influence the attitudes of three thousand more."

"It sounds good," I admitted, "but I am not sure it works."
