It was very hot. So after travelling a great distance into the desert, they decided to take some rest. The rich man got off the donkey and looked around. But there was no shade or tree to be seen.
The master sat in the small shadow of the standing donkey. The rich man saw this and said to the master,” I want to sit in the donkey’s shadow. I have paid for the donkey. Its my right to sit in his shadow. “
The master replied,” you have only hired the donkey. Being his master, i will sit in his shadow.” they both started arguing on this topic and soon it turned into a fight. The donkey got scared and ran away. Thus neither of them got the shadow.
MORAL: A fight may end up in a loss for all.
