Dividing a Piece of Bread completing story
Because each rat wanted the larger part of the bread. They even fought for that. Lastly, they agreed to put up their problem to the monkey who was considered the wisest animal in the forest.
They went to the monkey and asked him to divide the bread into two equal parts. The monkey behaved very gently with them. He said that it would be costly for them. It was better for them to settle it among themselves. But they didn't agree.
Then the monkey brought a pair of scales and tore out the bread into two pieces. He put the pieces on the scales. The cunning monkey divided the pieces in such a way that those were not equally divided.
He cut a small piece from the heavier piece and ate. Then the other piece became heavier. Then the monkey took a portion from that heavier piece and put it on the scales. Again the dishes of the scale were unequal and the clever monkey ate another small part of the larger portion. He continued this method and the bread piece became smaller gradually.
The rats understood the monkey's crafty trick and requested the monkey to stop that. They said that they would divide it equally themselves. They asked for that small piece of bread. But the clever monkey claimed the rest of the piece of bread as his charge.
