One day, an argument occurred between a monkey and an elephant about who was better among them. They both went to a lion for settlement.
The lion said, "Go across the river. There you will find a mango tree. Whosoever, gets a mango from there will be considered better?"
Both went to the river. The river current was very strong. The elephant mocked the monkey, "Sit on my back. I will take you across the river." On reaching across the river, the monkey jumped on the tree and plucked a mango.
Then he mocked at the elephant, "Now say who is better. Had I not been there, how would you have plucked the mango?"
They both returned to the lion and told their stories. The lion said, "You both are better in your own ways."
