In this The Jackal and the Drum story you will know that how Jakal was confused about the drum n the starting it was observing something and at the end it was something else for Jakal.

Once near a forest,Guest Posting a fierce battle ensued between two kings. One won and lost the other. The armies returned to their cities. Just then, an army drum was left behind. Bhand and Baran, who played the drum with the army, used to tell stories of valor at night.

After the war, a thunderstorm occurred. In the thrust of the storm, the drum was falling and aging and got stuck near a dry tree. The dry twigs of that tree were soaked with the drum in such a way that the strong wind hit the drum and there was the resonant sound of the drum.

A jackal used to roam that area. He heard the sound of drums. He was very scared. He had not heard any animal before uttering such a strange voice. He began to think what kind of animal is this, who speaks such a loud speech 'Dhammadham'. The jackal would hide and look at the drum, to know whether this creature is about to fly or to run on four legs.

One day, he was hiding behind a jackal and kept an eye on the drum. Then a squirrel descending from the tree jumped and landed on the drum. There was also the sound of lightning. The squirrel kept munching while sitting on the drum.

Jackal babbed 'Oh! So these are not violent creatures. I should not be afraid either.

The jackal blew up and went near the drum. Sniffed him. He did not see the head of the drum nor his feet. Then the twigs of the air collided with the drum. Dham sounded and the jackal jumped up and fell back.

'Now understood.' He said while trying to fly the jackal, 'This is an outer shell. Creatures are inside this shell. The voice is telling that whatever organism lives within this shell, it should be thick and fresh. Body full of fat Only then does he speak the loud dialect of dham = dham.
As soon as he entered his den, Jackal said, 'Oh jackal! Get ready for dinner. I have come to find a big-time hunt. '

Siari started asking 'Why didn't you bring him to death?'

The jackal gave him a shrug 'Because I am not a fool like you. He is hidden inside a shell. The shell is such that it has dry skin doors on two sides. If I tried to hold my hand from one side, it would not run away from the other door?

Both went towards the drum when the moon came out. While he was approaching, the wind then hit the twigs on the drum and the sound of drumming came out. Sayar said in Siari's ear 'Heard his voice? Just think, whose voice is so deep, it will be so fresh.

Straighten both the drum and sit on either side of it and tear the edge of both the skinned parts of the drum with the teeth attached. As soon as the foreskin began to bite, the jackal said, 'Be smart. Putting your hands inside together is to catch the victim. Both of them put their hands inside the drum with the sound of 'Hoon' and began to grope inside. There was nothing else. Each other's hands got caught. Both are shouted '! There is nothing here. And they were beaten to the forehead.
