The Priest and The Goat Story

Once upon a time, there lived a pious priest in a small village. He was a very innocent and simple natured person, who used to perform religious rituals. On one occasion, a wealthy man rewarded him with a goat for his services. The priest was very happy to get the goat as a reward. He happily hung the goat on his shoulder and started traveling towards his home. On the way, three thugs saw the priest taking the goat.

They were all lazy and wanted to deceive the priest so that they could take the goat. He said, “This goat will make delicious food for all of us. Let’s get it somehow”. They discussed the matter among themselves and made a plan to get the goat by fooling the priest. After deciding the plan, they separated from each other and met three different people on the way to the priest. Took different hiding positions at different places.

As soon as the priest reached a deserted place, one of the impostors came out of his hiding place and startled the priest and asked, “Sir, what are you doing? I don’t understand why a pious person like you needs to carry a dog on his shoulder?” The priest was surprised to hear such things. He shouted, “Can’t you see? It’s not a dog but a goat, fool! The fraudster replied, “Sir, I beg your pardon. I told you what I saw. I’m sorry if you don’t believe it.” The priest was angry at this discrepancy but he started his journey once again.

The priest had hardly gone a short distance when another impostor came out of his hiding place and asked the priest, “Sir, why do you carry a dead calf on your shoulders? You seem to be an intelligent person. Such an act is pure foolishness on your part”. The priest shouted, “What? How can you mistake a live goat for a dead calf?” The second impostor replied, “Sir, you seem to be very wrong in this matter. Either you don’t know what a goat looks like or you are doing this on purpose. I told you what I saw. Thank you”. The second impostor walked away smiling. The priest was confused but continued walking ahead.

Then the priest had covered a short distance when he met the third impostor. The third impostor laughingly asked, “Sir, why do you carry the donkey on your shoulders? It makes you a laughing stock”. The priest became very worried after hearing the words of the third thug. He started thinking, “Is this not really a goat? Is it some kind of ghost?”

He thought that the animal he was carrying on his shoulders might actually be some kind of ghost, as it transformed itself from a goat to a dog, from a dog to a dead calf, and from a dead calf to a donkey. The priest got so scared that he threw the goat on the roadside and ran away. The three tricksters laughed at the innocent priest. They caught the goat and were happy to feast on it.

Moral Story:- One should not get involved in what others say. Don’t be fooled by people who want to take advantage of you.
