I don’t know when and where but I had read this story. So I remixed it with my thoughts and I am here with a different version of the story.
Long ago, a tiger’s cub lost in the jungle. Didn’t know where to go and hadn’t eat something for days. Death was near, fortunately a herd of sheep was passing and a sheep get attention of the cub. Her eyes filled with care. And he took the cub with her; raise him with her own childs.
Years passed. Tiger (cub) was growing, yet he was living with herd. He did eat grass, was afraid of other wild animals. No one could make difference that he wasn’t a sheep.
One day an another tiger saw the tiger(cub) with herd. He felt offended and was curious. So decided to talk with the tiger (cub). Tried alot but every time the tiger(cub) ran back. Besides he got a chance to talk to him. Firstly he made him believe that he won’t hurt.
Why do you behave like sheep and live with them? Asked by the tiger.
What does that mean? Replied by the tiger (cub) and he asked, Why do you behave like tiger?
Because I am a tiger. He replied.
Same here, because I am a sheep. Replied by the tiger(cub).
The tiger laughed. So many arguments occured. In the end the tiger stopped explaining And the tiger(cub) was feeling that tiger had gone mad.
He asked him to do a last thing.
Okay, will you do a thing for me? After that maybe you will realize.
The tiger(cub) accepted it because he want to prove that tiger was wrong.
Next day the carnival was about to be celeberated. Whole herd was together. As told by the tiger, he went in the middle of everyone. Closed his eyes and roar as much loud he could.
Sluggishly he open his eyes, there wasn’t even a single sign of a sheep. At that moment he realized what he actually is.
Here I don’t want you to focus on the point that he was in herd. I am focusing on the point that he underestimate himself: As we all do.
So awake cause
It’s time to roar.
