Sharing a short story this week, enjoy!!
Once upon a time there was a king. Like all
kings he was great, powerful and whimsical. He had a pet monkey. His favourite.
He was with the king at all times, the king used to enjoy the antics of the
monkey and keep himself entertained. Everyone knew about the special position
of the monkey in the king’s heart and the monkey basked in his masters
attention and the privilege of being the special one.
One day, after a scrumptious lunch, it was nap
time for the king. However there was a little problem - a fly. Every time the
king started snoozing, the fly would come and sit on the kings nose disturbing

very irritated. The monkey was even more irritated and decided to teach the fly
a lesson. The next time the fly came and sat on the kings face, the monkey hit
it with a sword with all his might. End of story, for the king. For us, there
