                                                               "It is better to be practical than learned."

Four friends live in a village which has been struck by famine. Three of them are extremely
clever and learned and consider their friend Shivanand a lazy but practical fool.

The four decide to go a place called Manasa, which is considered an asylum for scholars. On their
way they have to pass through a forest. There they come across bones of a lion. Satyanand
decides to show his knowledge by recreating the lion’s skeleton. The other friend reconstructs
the lion’s muscles and structure. Vidyanand then wants to show his superior powers by
breathing life into the lion.

Shivanand tries to stop them and warns them of the consequences of their plans. But they do
not stop. Shivanand climbs a tree before Vidyanand foolishly proceeds with his plans. The lion
comes to life and devours the three learned fools.

Shivanand’s practical nature saves him.
