The story of the king and the foolish monkey - Panchatantra Story

Once upon a time, a king in a small kingdom had a pet monkey. The King loved the monkey a lot. The monkey was allowed to enter anywhere inside the palace, even where other ministers were forbidden to enter. 

One day, the king was fast asleep after lunch and the monkey was sitting beside the king, fanning him. Suddenly, a fly came and sat on the king's chest. The monkey drove the fly away with the fan, but the fly kept coming back again and again. 

The monkey got irritated  He picked up the sleeping king's sword and hit the fly with the sword. They fly few away, but sadly the sword wounded the king's chest. The king died immediately.

Moral: Foolish friend can bring more harm than an enemy.
