Once upon a time, there lived a cute rabbit named Rinku. He had three close friends, Porky the pig, Heena the hen and Miku the mouse. All three of them were so close that they always spent their time together.
One day, Rinku decided to bake a cake. He bought maida, baking powder, eggs , sugar, essence, etc from the market. When he reached home, he invited Porky, Heena and Miku to help him bake the cake. All his friends came home but they plonked themselves on the sofa watching cartoons on TV.
When Rinku asked them “ Who will help me to sieve the flour, powdered sugar and baking powder together?” All his friends said that they were very tired and needed to rest for some time. Rinku had no choice but to sieve the ingredients himself.
Rinku then heated the oven and asked his friends” Who will mix all the ingredients together and prepare the cake batter?” Once again all his friends refused saying it was a very small job and Rinku should not bother them with it. Poor Rinku prepared the cake batter, poured it into the cake tin and put the tin in the oven.
Slowly, the aroma of the cake wafted through the room, watering the mouths of Porky pig, Heena hen and Miku mouse .Finally, when the cake became golden brown in colour, Rinku took out the cake and put it aside for cooling.
Afterwards, Rinku cut the slices of cake and asked his friends whether they would like to join him. Everybody immediately agreed and promptly sat at the table. But Rinku told them “ Sorry friends but you cannot join me as you all have not helped me in preparing the cake. So you do not deserve a single slice of the cake which I have so painstakingly prepared.”
Saying this, Rinku ate the entire cake all by himself , leaving all his friends with growling tummies
