Marks, 15. In the hollow of a tree there dwelt two cats. Where did the large cat dwell? On the branches (STTCT) of that tree many birds made their dwelling. Mice and birds are the food of cats; but deer are eaten by lions and tigers. Having heard the words of the old tiger, the traveller replied with anger : I will not do what you command me ( 34TSIT caussal ). The king of the mice loosened the bonds of the rigeons. Hence I say : a friend is not to be despised (अवमन ), even though he be weak (part. pres.).
