Once a pair of oxen was yoked to a cart that was heavily loaded. They were exerting hard to draw it without complaining against the heavy load.

But as they heaved at the card, its axle began to creak aloud. It went on groaning terribly at a stretch. The oxen couldn’t make out why the axle was doing so.

The oxen tried to divert their attention from the axle's creak, but its bitter groan didn't cut down at all. So, they were feeling highly irritated.

At last the oxen stopped, turned their necks and said to the axle angrily, "Why are you crying like that when you are doing no work at all. It's we who are drawing the heavy cart and still not complaining. So, you better shut up and follow us silently."

The End..
