A Donkey Story


Presentation on the world donkey day

Greeting to all on the occasion of world donkey day. Here is a donkey story in the ensuing lines.
One day Nasredin Hoja was loading his donkey to go to market. He piled on one thing after another, and then got onto the donkey. The poor donkey, heavily overloaded, gave a loud groan and collapsed. So Nasredin got off the donkey and loaded half the things onto his own back. Then he got back onto the donkey. Once again the donkey gave a loud groan and collapsed. “What are you complaining about?!” shouted the Hoja. “I’m carrying half the stuff, and still you complain!!”Image
