Aesop fable???

Once upon a time, there was a forest. In a part of forest, lived a set of elephants. In another part, lived kangaroos.

Lots of competitions used to be held between the animals in the forest. Both kangaroos and elephants used to win regularly. But kangaroos used to be haughty and never accept elephants' victory, but elephants would cheer kangaroos whenever kangaroos won.

There was a highly talented elephant who won the competitions for elephants. Likewise, a certain kangaroo was also quite talented and won competitions.

All kangaroos will just like that nitpick elephant whenever the elephant won for their herd. This elephant would then be subjected to utter humiliation by kangaroos.

Kangaroos would say, "elephant is not an elephant at all and the elephant doesn't walk with its legs, but runs, when it it supposed to walk." Kangaroos would then ask elephant to come for a check-up. They will test the elephants and will certify it only walks. But whenever competition would start, kangaroos would start again.

But elephant never lost determination to win for his team.

The King of the forest was also a kangaroo. He called for a competition. Just before the competition started, he announced that the specific elephant is a cheater and hurled all sorts of abuses.

The elephant known for its sensitivity refused to participate in the competition.

It is important to note that the elephant had won so far 527 medals. And the kangaroos had nearly 523 medals.

King kangaroo was so happy that the elephant did not come. Other kangaroos were happy too, but acted like Nambiar villain and hid their glee.

And then, Shane Warne equalled Muttiah Muralitharan's world record!!!
