The monkey said that there are very sweet apples on this tree and the monkey gave some apples to the crocodile to eat.


For this reason the monkey became friends with the crocodile. Now every day that monkey used to give sweet apples to that crocodile to eat.


One day the crocodile took some apples to his house and gave it to his wife too. After eating sweet apple, his wife said that "the heart of the person who eats so many sweet fruits every day will be very sweet".


Saying this she told her husband that she needed to eat the monkey's heart. And she stuck to this stubbornness as if.

The monkey agreed to his friend and jumped from the tree on the crocodile's back.


The monkey got on the crocodile's back and the crocodile started swimming towards his house when they reached the middle of the river.


The crocodile, thinking that now there is no harm in telling the monkey the truth because the monkey cannot run away, he told the whole thing to the monkey that his wife wants to eat the monkey's sweet heart.


Hearing this, the monkey felt very sad and as if his heart was broken. The wise monkey did not lose his patience and said with alacrity "Oh my dear friend, why didn't you tell this to me earlier?


I have hung my heart in an apple tree. Let's take me back to the bank of the river so that I can bring my heart to feed my sister-in-law and fulfill her wish”.
