Two friends lived in a village. They often bragged about true and sincere friendship. One day they set out for another village. On the way they passed through a forest. When they were walking through the forest, they saw a bear coming to their direction, at a distance. One of them hurriedly climbed up the tree and did not bother about the other. The friend who could not climb up the tree lay on the grass quite breathless like a dead man. After some time the bear came near him and smelt him. The bear thought him dead and took his way. When the bear went away, the selfish friend came down from the tree and went to his friend. He asked the friend what the bear had told him in his ear. The other friend was a wise fellow and he replied that the bear had told him that a friend in need is a friend indeed. Since that day he never talked to his selfish friend who left him in the trouble.
