One day, three friends set out a journey. When they were passing through a forest, they saw a bag lying on the ground. They picked it up and were over-joyed to find it full of gold. They decided to divide the gold equally among themselves. They were hungry and tried. So they sat under a tree and sent one of them to fetch food from a neighbouring town. In his absence, the other two decided to kill him and divide the gold equally between them. The man, who had gone to fetch food, was very greedy. He mixed some deadly poison in the food. He said to himself, 'I will have the whole gold when they eat this meal. I’ll go to town and start my own business with the gold I get''. When he came back to his companions they killed him. Then both of them ate the food which the first one brought for them. As the food was poisoned, so both of them died.
