Winter --- a snake frozen with cold --- a traveler takes pity --- carries it home from in a basket --- places it near the fire --- begins to move --- tries to bite his children --- killed --- Moral.
A farmer was returning home from the town one day. He was a snake almost frozen on account of cold. He took pity on it, and carried it home in his basket. There he placed it near the fire, and his children gathered around it. After a few minutes, it began to move about. All of a sudden it rushed at one of them. But the farmer killed it with his stick, before it could bite him.
Moral: Nature cannot be changed.
