NARRATOR: Once upon a time, it happened in a forest that a hare was resting under a banyan tree. He had an intuition of doom and thought.



HARE 1: What would happen to me, if the earth will break?.



NARRATOR: Suddenly, he heard a weird striking sound.



HARE 1: It’s happened, the earth is breaking up.



NARRATOR: He jumped up and ran madly without even observing the direction. When he was running through the forest, a hare saw him and asked.



HARE 2: What happened?.  Where are you going in such a hurry?.



HARE 1: The earth is breaking up. You better run too.



NARRATOR: The second hare ran so fast that he overtook the first hare. As they were passing the forest, both of them shouted to other hares.



HARE 1 AND 2: The earth is breaking up. The earth is breaking up.



NARRATOR: Very soon, thousands of hares were running through the forest. Then the other animals too got frightened. All creatures whether reptiles or birds, insects or four-footed animals, everyone was trying to escape.  A lion standing on a hill saw all the animals running and thought.



LION: What is the matter?.



NARRATOR: He ran down the hill rapidly and positioned himself in front of the crowd. He shouted at them.



LION: Stop!.  Stop!.



NARRATOR: The powerful presence of the lion curtailed the rising wave of fright among the animals.



PARROT: The earth is breaking up.



LION: Who said it? .



PARROT: I heard it from the monkeys.



MONKEYS: We heard it from the tigers.



TIGERS: We were informed by the elephants.



ELEPHANTS: The buffaloes told us.



NARRATOR: Finally, when the hares were caught up, they pointed one to another until the one, who started this menace was recognized.



LION: What made you think that the earth is breaking up?.



HARE 1: Your Majesty, I heard it cracking with my own ears.



NARRATOR: The Lion investigated the matter and explored the sound that the hare had heard.



LION: The sound was caused by a large coconut falling from a tree. The coconut fell on a pile of rocks causing a minor landslide.  Now,  go back to your homes. The earth is absolutely safe. Next time, check a rumour before acting on it.



NARRATOR: The animals, which were now looking quite bad, went back to their homes.
