Intelligent Merchants

Some merchants were living in one village. They had to travel to different places to sell their goods. Once they were going to another village to sell their goods and it became very late. They had to pass through the jungle at night in the dark. Some robbers stopped them and robbed their goods.
These merchants were brave and intelligent so they used a trick. They told the robbers that they were very good actors. They can perform a good drama to entertain them. The robbers sat to see their drama.
The merchants started the drama. First they dressed like shepherds and started singing:
"Merchant Actors are coming. Shepherd act is coming".
They acted like shepherds and entertained the robbers. Then they took different roles of carpenters, shoe makers, blacksmith etc and entertained the robbers.
The robbers started singing and dancing with the merchants. Then the merchants took the role of robbers and police. Some merchants became robbers and some became police. In this drama, they saw that police have to take the robbers to the city. Now the merchants started singing:
"Merchant Actors are coming. Robber act is coming. Run Fast. Run Fast. Go to City, Call the Police".
Some merchants went to the city and informed the real police about the robbers. The real police came with them to the place where they were performing the drama before the robbers.
Now the merchants started singing:
"Merchant Actors are coming. Police act is coming".
First came the merchants who were acting as police. So the robbers thought this as a part of their drama. They danced with the actors. Now the real police came and caught the robbers. Still the robbers were thinking it as a part of the drama! The police took the robbers to jail and the merchants got back their goods.
Thus the brave and intelligent merchants saved their goods and caught the robbers. We should not be afraid of a bad situation (like robbery here) but we should be brave to fight the situation and take right decisions with intelligence.
