bedbug and poor louse Panchatantra Story
A louse named Mandrisarpini had camped in the bedroom of a king. Every night when the king went, she would secretly go out and after sucking the king’s blood, she would hide in her place.
Incidentally, one day a bedbug named Agnimukh also entered the king’s bedroom. When the louse saw him, he asked to leave from there. He did not tolerate any other interference in his jurisdiction.
But the bedbug was no less clever, say, “Look, the guest is not treated like this, I am your guest tonight.” The louse finally came in the smooth talk of the bedbug and, giving her shelter, said, “Well, you can stay here all night, but if you bite the king then not to suck his blood.” The bedbug said, “But I am your guest, you will give me something to eat. And what could be better food than the blood of a king.
