The snake looking for food heard croaking of frogs at a distance and moved in that direction. By the river it saw a frog sitting on a rock and croaking loudly. Moving stealthly, the snake positioned itself behind the frog, raised its head and readied itself for the strike and was about to attack, when it saw another frog join the first one and both were croacking loudly looking at the river. The snake on seeing the second frog thought it should wait for some more time and expected more frogs would join them, and dreamt of a big meal. Just as it was dreaming of a big meal, both the frogs jumped and disappeared into the river. The snake cursed itself for its wishful thinking.
