The donkey told the tiger : The grass is blue.
The tiger replied: No, the grass is green.
The discussion became heated and the two decided to bring in a third party to arbitrate. They decided to bring the lion.
Before reaching the lion on its throne, the donkey began asking, ” Your majesty, isn’t it true that the grass is blue? “
The lion replied, “Yes, you are right the grass is blue indeed”.
The donkey sprang forward and continued, ” The tiger unfortunately disagrees with this fact, and annoys me. Kindly give me justice and punish him”.
The lion then declared that : the tiger will now remain silent for the next 5 years.
The donkey was overjoyed, began to sing ” The grass is blue “
The tiger after accepting his punishment, out of curiosity asked the lion, ” Your highness, I still don’t understand why you have punished me, after all the grass is green! “
The lion says, it has nothing to do with the fact of grass is green or blue. The punishment is because it is imperative for a courageous, intelligent creature like you to waste valuable time arguing with a donkey and moreover bring it to my notice.
