  1. That a leopard never changes it’s spots?

    But I’m guessing there’s a deeper meaning to it:)

    Pardon my ignorance but I am wondering why would the Scorpio die ❓ ❓
    as far the moral of the story…”don’t go by what others tell you,always follow your instincts when taking decisions in life.”

    Dil diya aitbar ki had thi
    Jaan de di yeh mere pyar ki had thi
    Mar kar bhi aankhen khuli rah gayi
    Aur kuch nahi yeh tere intezar ki had thi

    All I can say is,
    One has no other choice than to trust blindly – like the frog did.
    Baad mein jo hota hai, yeh toh hai… God’s role-play in what one might call the theatre of life. Each one has a role to play, each one, a part to enact.

    I’ve heard this story before, but not with scorpion….some other creature (maybe spider or something else). And they are crossing a river, which is why it asks for a ride on the frog’s back. So when the frog dies due to the bite, the other creature also dies coz it does not know how to swim. Story makes more sense now na 🙂
    But even then the creature bites…becoz thats how it is.

    In other words, watch your back…quite literally. Trust your instincts. Coz a leopard cannot change its spots.

      You are perfectly right , This can be one of the assumptions .. I left that part .. as it was not important how the scorpion died .. it could be any reason .. the point was He bit the frong inspite of promising he wont .. and The frog Knew he will be bitten and still took the word … and died.
      yes watch your back we all have some part of that scorpion in us, after all we are animals tooo…

      Yeah trust instincts but we forget them sometimes and end up hurt or dead as in this case …

  29. I guess we can consider it as a knee-jerk reaction….might not necessarily be that the scorpion is bad…but it has been doing so since its birth…I mean biting strangers…and old habits die hard…
    It’s like when a pot is kept on a stove, you naturally become cautious while picking it up with bare hands or without a pair of tongs whether the pot is hot or not…
    The frog should’ve been more cautious..because a scorpion is a scorpion is a scorpion…
