The Cycle of Fear – Indian Folklore

The Cycle Of Fear

A mouse was extremely worried that a cat would catch and kill her. Her fear was so great that she never ventured out at all. “How I wish I were a cat. I would then have nothing to fear,” she thought.

A genie who was nearby heard her and pronto, through his powers, her wish came true and she turned into a cat. As a cat, she saw a dog and became afraid again, wishing she were a dog. The genie heard her again and her wish was granted. She turned into a dog.

Then she saw a lion and she was terrified by his power and strength and wished she could become a lion so that she would not have to be terrified ever again. Her wish was again granted and she became lion. At this stage, she saw a man who was about to shoot her with his gun. Naturally, she wished she could become a human and she did. But then, when she was sitting in her house, she saw a mouse and guess what? She started shouting for she was scared of the mouse!
