Once a lion lay fast asleep in the Ranathambore forest of Rajasthan. Some mice were playing hide and seek near him. One mouse got trapped under the lion’s paw. The lion woke up, laughed loudly and let the mouse go!
After some days the mouse heard the lion’s roar. He saw that the lion lay in great pain as he was tied with many ropes. The mouse used his sharp teeth and cut the rope. ‘‘You are a true friend,’’ said the lion.

Whenever any classmate of mine has forgotten to bring their tiffin, I will share my tiffin with them. If I get my bicycle to school, I can ask fellow students who live nearby if they need me to drop them off.
