Raja



"Don't waste paper," people told him, but Raja never listened.

"A King does whatever he wants," he laughed. "Cut all the trees to make paper and I will play with boats and planes."

The trees decided to teach him a lesson.

Next day, when Raja went to the forest, the trees held him in their branches, "Throw him up. He is our aero-plane. Then we will make a boat out of him."

He was tossed in air, and dipped in lake. Fear seized Raja and he apologized, "My acts would now be clean. My motto forever - Go Green."
