Once a fox was roaming around in a forest looking for food. Suddenly, he saw a pig rubbing his tusks against the trunk of a tree.
The fox looked about carefully but couldn’t see any danger for the pig anywhere. Despite being so clever, he couldnât understand why, the pig was doing that.
He couldn’t control himself, went to the pig and asked, “The hunters are not out today, nor can I see any other danger, then why are you doing that?”
The pig replied, “Dear! We live in a forest where enemies are there at every step. Who knows when I’ll have to face them and use my tusks against them? So, if I don’t do it now, I may not get time to sharpen my tusks when I need them the most.”
This story teaches us that always be ready for the bad times to come.
