All the elephants gathered together and started talking among themselves. they said that we have no other choice.  We have to get away from this place now.  Without water, our children will die.  We need to find some other water spots. 

After thinking for a while, an old elephant said, I know a place where there is plenty of water.  That place is only a short distance from here.  We all go there.

The elephants started walking the next morning.  It will also take almost 5 days to reach that lake.  When they reached near the lake, they saw.  There was a lot of water in that lake.  they all became very happy and all are agreed to settle there.

There were many holes in the ground near the lake in which rabbits lived.  An elephant became very happy about seeing the water and without thinking, he jumped into the lake.

Story of elephant and rabbit

Seeing him, the other elephants also followed him into the lake.  Seeing this uproar, all the rabbits came out of their cave.

Because of which some rabbits died under the feet of elephants and some rabbits got injured. And Some rabbits ran away and saved themselves.
After a while, when the elephants left, the rabbits came back home and talked among themselves.

One rabbit said that due to lack of water, elephants will now be here and every day one of us will die.  Then another rabbit said what can we do to stay alive.  We must leave this place and only then we will be able to save our life. 

One of them said that no, we will not leave this place. This forest is our house and here we came earlier.  If we scare the elephants, they will not come back here.  I have a plan so that we can scare them. so that they will not dare to come here again.  If you all support me, then this work will be done very easily.

According to the plan, a rabbit sat on the path of the elephants. 
When a herd of elephants came, the rabbit shouted and said that the water you drink, the water that you playing with, is the water of lord moon.
