The Farmer And The Crane

Once there was a farmer who was worried about his crops. His crops were being eaten by the birds every day.

Agitated, he decided to trap the birds the next day. When the birds came, he managed to capture them with a big net. A crane too got trapped with them.

The crane pleaded the farmer to free him.

To this request, the farmer answered, “You were found in the company of these birds who destroyed my crops. I cannot let you go. I won’t spare you either.”

Moral of the Story: You get judged for the company you keep.
