A long time ago there was a monkey who used to live around the rose apple tree by the side of the river. He used to live all alone on that tree and has no other friends. One day he met a crocodile who lived in the river.
Crocodile set to the monkey that he was very hungry and searched the food all across but found nothing then in order to help out the crocodile monkey give him some of the apples from the tree. Crocodile thanked the monkey and went away.
Like the same crocodile started visiting the monkey everyday now in search of some rose apples, which were actually very delicious.

Monkey had no problem with that; he plugged some more apples and gave them to the crocodile without any kind of questions. It is a panchatantra stories in english.
Crocodile’s wife loved those apples and she also grew a bit of the jealous of the monkey as well because her husband was spending much more time away from her with the monkey. Therefore she pretended very wonderfully that a crocodile can not be a friend of a monkey.
The wife of the crocodile was so smart that she thought that if the monkey is only eating these sweet apples daily then his flesh will also be very sweet to eat. Therefore she asked the crocodile to bring the monkey to the home so that they could have dinner together and also she could meet the monkey. But the crocodile was not so happy with it.
Therefore, the wife of the crocodile made up a plan, that she is very ill and one of the family doctors suggested that she needs to eat the heart of the monkey in order to live. Otherwise, she will die. The crocodile was so upset that he does not want his wife to die and on the other hand, she does not want to harm his friend.
Then with a heavy heart, the crocodile went to the monkey and invited him for the dinner as planned. Monkey was really very happy and he agreed instantly. But the monkey questioned that how he would go with the crocodile as the monkey does not know how to swim. Then the crocodile suggested to sit on the back of the crocodile and he would take him to the other hand of the river. Monkey happily agreed to it.
Monkey sat on the back of the crocodile and both began to go on the other side of the river. But in the middle of the river the crocodile started to sink. Monkey asked the crocodile what happened to you. He replied that I am going to kill you as my wife is so ill and in order to live again she needs your heart to eat. Otherwise she will die.
