whizzing past. One of the hunters took aim from a distance of one foot and shot
the tiger. This time he killed it without missing his mark. Maharaja was out for purchasing a birthday gift for his son and finally he spotted a wooden tiger in a toyshop and decided it was the perfect gift. On that day father and son played with that tiny little wooden tiger. It had been carved by an unskilled carpenter. Its surface was rough; tiny slivers of wood stood up like quills all over it. One of those slivers pierced the Maharaja’s right hand The next day, infection flared in the Maharaja’s right
