Chintu And The Crocodile

"Beware of the crocodile while passing by the river," Tina Monkey warned her son Chintu Monkey while helping him put the schoolbag on his back.
"Crocodile? What's that?" asked Chintu.
" Haven't you learnt about the crocodile in school?"asked Tina.
"You mean ghost? I am not afraid of ghosts!" said Chintu.
"It's not a ghost. It's a reptile with a thick skin, a strong tail, a huge mouth and beady eyes. It can walk on land and swim in water," explained Tina.
"But that's an elephant and not a croco.. er..what did you call it, Mom?"
"Crocodile. A big crocodile has come to the river. I heard that it killed a goat that had gone to the river to drink water. I want you to be careful when you pass by the river."
"All right, Mom, I'll be careful," said Chintu, waving goodbye to his mother.
As he walked to school, he thought about the strange creature called the crocodile that had made its home in the river.
"I'm not scared of that crocodile. If it comes near me, I will break its head with my water bottle!" he told himself. "And I'll kick his face with my shoe and poke his eyes out with my umbrella! "
When he reached the riverside, curiosity got the better of him and he climbed up a tree to catch a glimpse of the crocodile. He looked all along the length of the river but couldn't see the crocodile.
"Mom must have cooked up this story just to keep me from the river," sighed Chintu as he climbed down from the tree. "There is no creature called crocodile in this world."
"What did you say?" asked a voice from behind. "If there are no crocodiles in the world, pray, who am I?"
Turning back, Chintu asked, "Who said that?"
"I said it!" said the crocodile, and whipping a log with his tail, he cut it into two.
"Who are you?" shouted Chintu frightened.
"I am a CROCODILE!!" said the crocodile, opening its mouth wide.
"It must be the creature that mom had warned me about!" thought Chintu.
"Okay, I believe you. There are crocodiles in this world. Let me go or I will be late for school," saying that Chintu started moving backwards.
"Don't move! I am going to eat you up right now" said the crocodile and started moving towards him slowly.
Chintu thought fast of a way to escape. He quickly emptied his schoolbag in front of the crocodile.

Only then will I allow to you to eat me up." The crocodile said,"How can I trust you?You may run away while I go and eat the fruits." "See, crocodile,I am very hungry. That was my lunch but I am giving it to you. A hungry person can't get away so fast."Believing Chintu,he left him to his wife and went in the river where the bag had travelled far away.Chintu told his wife,"You see your husband has gone far away in the river and may not even come back. And if he comes back,he will have eaten all the fruits.Why don't you also go and have your share of fruit." His wife said,"That is a good idea. But how can I leave you alone?" chintu said,"BElieve me,a hungry person can't run away." The foolish wife ran in the river following the crocodile.

Chintu asked the crocodile to start with his lunch as appetizer. The crocodile agreed and chintu took his umbrella in his right hand and hid it at his back. As the crocodile ate chintu's lunch, he (chintu) quickly used his umbrella to pluck the crocodile's two eyes. The crocodile started moving in different directions hitting his body against trees around and finally it gave up. This bravely act by chintu brought him fame in the village and his mother was very happy with him.
He then asked him "if you are very hungry so please eat my snacks!" säying so he ran away.
Chintu removed his lunch box. And he said “Mr. Crocodile, if I eat my lunch now itself, I will be fatter and tastier with this yummy chili subji and parotas inside my tummy. So, I will eat my lunch and then, you can eat me. The crocodile was a little foolish and so agreed to the plan. Usually chintu used to climb a tree and walk on it. From the end of the branch he used to jump down on a big rock in the river. Bundila, an elephant, would be standing near the rock, bathing. Chintu would climb on her back and she would take him to the other side, where his school was located. He told the crocodile, “I will also eat those mangoes on the tree and come down ". The crocodile became suspicious and thought for a minute. He agreed to the plan. Chintu climbed up the tree and followed his usual route to the school, sticking his tongue at the crocodile. The crocodile was angry. “Grr! I will eat you when you come back. “But, while coming back chintu usually came back in the school bus. He went and told Tina, his mom what had happened. She praised him, but had a feeling that he wouldn’t be able to trick the crocodile every day. So, she went to the police and lodged a complaint. The police head, Mr. Elephant went and requested the animal catcher, Mr. Lion to catch the crocodile. The operation was successful and so, all the animals of the kingdom were relieved. So, Chintu was practically the hero because of the clever way he had handled the problem.
After emptying his bag he took out his pen and opend the lid. Next he also opened the nib holder. The crocodile was wondering what he was trying to do.

"What are you doing?", asked the crocodile. "Finding my science text book.", said Chintu. "Ahhh. Foolish monkey, Why do you need that now? I am going to eat you anyway", jeered the crocodile laughing loudly showing all its sharp teeth. Chintu, stared at the crocodile as if it was the most foolish animal in the world. "Well, you silly crocodile. I thought you would want to eat me when I am nice and tasty. That is why I was planning to read about all the fruits and vegetables in our text book. Then I will taste just like them all when you eat me", said Chintu. The crocodile was surprised to know this. He was happy that Chintu was being nice and making himself tasty. "Ok. That is good. Please do read about them properly. Do you have any stories on sweets as well? It would be so nice if my food tasted like sweets", said the greedy crocodile. "Yes, of course!", said Chintu. He sat down on a nearby rock and started to read his books aloud. Initially, the crocodile listened with rapt attention, licking his mouth whenever Chintu read about something really tasty like Mangoes, Carrots or Halwas. Soon, he became drowsy with all the listening and fell asleep. That was enough for Chintu!. He quickly packed his bags and ran off home. He couldn't wait to tell his mother how he had outwitted the crocodile. As for the crocodile, it is still lying near the river asleep from the stories and lessons that Chintu had read. Still, be careful not to go too close to it as it will be tremendously hungry when it wakes up and will eat you instead!

Chintu decided to do what he thought about before, he wanted to bring his water bottle out of his bag but it was too late, the crocodile was too close. Chintu was desperately looking for a solution and then it hit him, he was going to manipulate the crocodile. He shouted: Hey, look behind you! and as the crocodile turned around he ran like there was no tomorrow. The crocodile had realized the prank but there was too much distance between them. As Chintu was running he realized he was late to school. But now he had an exciting story to tell all his friends! But none of this would have happened if Chintu would have controlled his curiosity and wasn't so careless. Chintu could have almost died ...... but now he learnt his lesson and decided to never talk about that crocodile again, and of course, stay away from the river as much as possible.
Chintu's mom had packed his favorite breakfast dosa and chutney. He likes his chutney which was very spicy. So he thought he can pour that chutney over the eyes of crocodile and when crocodile can no longer see, he can escape. As he planned, he opened the lunch box and told crocodile, please don't eat me, I have very tasty berries in my lunch box which I can share with you. While crocodile tried to peep into the lunch box, Chintu poured the chutney on crocodile eyes and escaped from there.

He told the crocodile that he could eat him up but before that he wanted just one time to see the crocodiles teeth so he asked him to open his mouth, the crocodile saw no harm in letting chintu see his teeth before eating him so he agreed. He was unaware that chintu was holding his umbrella behind his back in his hands, the minute the crocodile opened his mouth chintu swiftly put the umbrella between his jaws and got the jaws stuck open. Hurriedly he picked his bag and ran away leaving the crocodile with an open mouth, an empty stomach and helpless creature.

As Chintu emptied his schoolbag, his pencil box fell onto the ground. It opened due to the force of the fall and its contents were spilled all over the place. The crocodile saw Chintu's rubber rolling towards him. But he didn't know that it was a rubber, he thought that it was a toffee which that monkey had hidden in that box. Chintu tried to grab the rubber before the crocodile (actually he was acting), but he failed. The crocodile snatched the rubber (or toffee) before Chintu. He said "Let me first eat your valuable toffee and then as a payment for this toffee I would give you a free journey to heaven". Saying this he put the rubber in his mouth and swallowed it. But the rubber only went halfway down his throat, so the crocodile tried to spit it out. But the rubber wouldn't come out or go in. The crocodile felt choked, he couldn't breath. He collapsed onto the ground. He begged to Chintu for saving his life. But Chintu stood where he was. The crocodile took its last breath and the next moment he was DEAD. Chintu had given his rubber to the crocodile and he didn't get "a free journey to heaven" as the crocodile told but he got something which was what he really wished for. HE HAD BECOME "THE HERO OF THE JUNGLE" AND ALSO "TO KILL A HEARTLESS CROCODILE".

He did it because he thought that the crocodile would spare him if he gave it his lunchbox. He was surprised that the plan worked! He ran off to his mother and told her about his adventure. She scolded him and sent him off again with more food. But when he told this to his friends they were very proud of him and gave him the title 'Hero of the day'.
Chintu pulled out a rope from his pack and flung it onto a tree across the river. He jumped on the rope and swung across the river. The crocodile laughed and said, of course he'd run away and never try to defeat me. Suddenly Chintu swung back coming full tilt toward the crocodile and hit him straight in the chest. The crocodile went flying head over tail into the river. The crocodile took a moment to gather himself. He was flabbergasted that this young little monkey. He thought to charge at him, but was worried about what else the monkey may have in his pack.
