Long ago there was a poor Brahmin named Krishna. He could not find enough work to do. Sometimes, he and his family had to go without food. At last Krishnan decided to leave his village in search of work. Early next morning, he left the house. He walked the whole day until he came to a thick jungle.He was tired, thirsty and hungry. While looking around for water to drink, he found a well. He went to the well and looked in. There he saw a jaguar, a monkey, a snake and a man. They had all fallen into the well “O, noble Brahmin,”the jaguar called out to him, “Please help me out, so that I can go back to my family. “But you are a jaguar,” said Krishnan, “How do I know you will not kill me?” “Don’t be afraid of me, I promise I will not do you any harm,” replied the jaguar. Krishnan reached into the well and pulled out the jaguar. The jaguar thanked him and said “I’m Shersingh I live in a cave in the mountains. I shall be most delighted if I can repay my debt to you someday.”Krishnan then heard the monkey calling out to him from the well. The Brahmin at once pulled the monkey out.The monkey thanked the Brahmin. “If you are ever in need of food, just drop in at my place below that big mountain Bali is my name “Now the snake called out to him for help,”Help you!, exclaimed Krishnan “You are a snake What if you bite me ?’ I shall never bite you, said the snake. So Krishnsn pulled the snake out of the well. The snake said “Remember, if you are ever in any difficulty, just call out my name Naagesh, and wherever you are, I shall find you.” The jaguar, the monkey and the snake took leave of the Brahmin. But before they left, they spoke to him about the man in the well. “Please do not help him,” said Shersingh.”If you do,” said Naagesh “you will be in trouble yourself”. As soon as they left, the man in the well began to call out for help. Krishnan felt sorry for the man and pulled him out of the well. “Thank you for your Kindness, “said the man. “I am Seth Ghanshyamdas. I am a goldsmith. If you ever need my help, don’t hesitate to visit my humble house near the city.” The goldsmith then left for home.
After sometime, the Brahmin continued his journey. But he could not find any work. He then remembered Shersingh, Bali ,Naagesh and Seth Ghanshyamdas. He thought it was time to seek their help.

But who could help him to sell the ornaments ? He then remembered Seth Ghanshyamdas. He went to him. The goldsmith was glad to see Krishnan. I have come to ask for your help, “said Krishnan “Here are some ornaments. Please give me a good price for them .”Seth Ghanshyamdas took the jewellery and examined it carefully. “I shall certainly help you,”he said. “But let me show them to another goldsmith.
