A temple was being built in a town. Many people were working there. On the nearby banyan tree there lived a gang of monkeys. One day labours were away for lunch break. The monkey gang stormed that area. One monkey saw a partly cut wood. There was a wedge in the half cut portion of the wood. Out of curiosity the monkey tried to pull it off. After much effort the wedge came off and monkey’s leg got stuck in the half cut portion. After a while out of severe pain the monkey died. The moral of the story is, ”one should not interrupt in other’s affairs.”
