Beware of Crocodiles on your way

Our city is just like a deep river and we are like a monkey. Each morning we start our day as monkey and meet a crocodile who understand us so much that he praise us and invite us to take ride on his back. He guide us and tell us that he will help us in crossing this heavily flowing river. And we without contemplating start riding on his back. On reaching middle of the river, he ask us with a smile ” Do you know where i am taking you my dear Monkey ?”. And then i use to reply “No”. He replies  “I will take you to my home and offer you to my wife. She will cut your heart into pieces and we will have Monkey Soup tonight. Hehehe”. But suddenly i remember one of the points of Chankaya and using that i reply to him “Oh my dear Crocodile … I am sorry to interrupt you … But If i know that you need me for soup of my heart, then i would love to keep my heart with me before leaving  and never left it safer on the tree”.  Crocodile with bewildered mind then asks me if i can get my heart from that tree. I suggest him to raise his back upwards so that i can pick my heart from the branch of the tree on top of the river. He raises his back and i at once  make a huge jump onto the tree and never go back to him. He praises me a lot but still i am not effected by his praises. He offers me a banana but i am not effected by that too. He ignored me but still i am unattached. And finally i am happy with my job of enjoying my work and jumping  from one tree to another and not listening to such crocodiles.
