Once upon a time, there was a royal elephant which used to reside in the
premises of the king’s palace. The elephant was very dear to the king, so
he was well-fed and well-treated. There was also a Dog who lived near the
Elephant’s shed. He was very weak and skinny. He was always fascinated by
the smell of rich sweet rice being fed to the royal elephant.
One day, the Dog could no longer resist the aroma of the rice and somehow
managed to sneak into the Elephant’s shed. He ate the grains of sweet
rice that fell from the Elephant’s mouth. He liked the rice so much, that
he started going there daily to eat the rice. For days, the huge Elephant
didn’t notice the small dog as he was busy enjoying the delicious food.
Gradually, the Dog grew bigger and stronger eating such rich food.
Finally, the Elephant noticed him and allowed him access to the food.
The Elephant enjoyed the company of the Dog and started sharing his food
with him. They also started spending time with each other and soon became
good friends. They ate together, slept together and played together.
While playing, the Elephant would hold the Dog in his trunk and swing him
back and forth. Soon neither of them was happy without the other. They
became great friends and didn’t want to be separated from each other.
Then one day, a man saw the Dog and asked the Elephant-keeper, “I want to
buy this Dog. What price do you want for it ?” The Elephant-keeper didn’t
own the Dog but sold it and extracted a sum of money from this deal. The
man took the Dog to his home village, which was quite far away. The
King’s Elephant became very sad after this incident. He missed his friend
a lot and started neglecting everything. He didn’t want to do anything
without his dear friend, so he stopped eating, drinking and even bathing.
Finally, the Elephant-keeper reported this to the King; however he didn’t
mention anything about the Dog. The King had a wise minister, who was
known for his keen understanding of animals. The King ordered the
minister, “Go to the Elephant shed and find out the reason for the
Elephant's condition”. The intelligent minister went to the Elephant shed
and found the Elephant very sad. He examined the Elephant and asked the
Elephant-keeper. “There is nothing wrong with this Elephant’s body, then
why does he look so sad ? I think this Elephant is grief stricken,
possibly due to the loss of a dear friend. Do you know if this Elephant
shared a close friendship with anyone ?”
The Elephant-keeper said, “There was a Dog who used to eat, sleep and
play with the Elephant. He was taken by a stranger three days ago”. The
minister went back to the King and said, “Your majesty, in my opinion,
the royal Elephant is not sick, but he is lonesome without his dear
friend, the Dog”. The King said, “You’re right, friendship is one of the
most wonderful things of life. Do you know where that Dog is ?’

The Minister replied, “Elephantkeeper has informed me that a stranger
took him away and he doesn’t know his whereabouts”. The King asked, “How
can we bring back my Elephant’s friend and make him happy again ?” The
Minister suggested, “Your Majesty, make a declaration, that whoever has
the dog that used to live at the royal Elephant’s shed will be
penalized”. The King did the same and the man who had taken the dog,
instantly turned him loose when he heard the proclamation.
As soon as he was freed, the Dog ran back as fast as he could to the
Elephant’s shed. The Elephant was so delighted to see the Dog that he
picked his friend up with his trunk and swung him back and forth. The Dog
wagged his tail, while the Elephant’s eyes sparkled with happiness. The
King was content to see the Elephant happy once again and rewarded the
minister for his wise judgement.
