It was winter season. One day Hemant’s cold wind started blowing and it started drizzling along with it. At that time a monkey, shivering from the icy wind and rain, sat on the branch of that tree.

His teeth were cracking due to the winter. Seeing him the bird said—- “Hey! Who are you? Your face is like that of a man; You have hands and feet too. Still you are sitting here, why don’t you live by building a house?”
