(Notice the way the child expressed Salim’s reasoning, amazing flow of thought. It also is a trait of logical thinking)
Once upon a time there was a man named Salim. He was walking through
a forest. The forest was very deep and was full of deciduous trees.
First, he saw few small snakes coming near him, but he was not afraid
as they did not hurt him. He also saw many trees, monkeys and insects.
He decided to eat his lunch. He sat under an oak tree and ate his
After that, in the forest he was walking on a bridge and just then a
crocodile spotted him. He saw the crocodile and started to run to
reach to his destination alive. The crocodile was chasing him. Though,
the man tried but he could not run faster than the crocodile and was
caught by it.
Then, all his courage gave away. He thought that if he could reach
his destination, there will be many people standing and they would
help him. If at all they do not help him the guards will surely help
him as they have sticks made of metal and they are armed with guns. If
any animal comes to trouble anybody the guards scare the animal and
save the person. So, the person is safe near to his destination.
So, Salim asked the crocodile for his last wish before dying that he
wants to reach to his destination and the crocodile agreed. As soon as
he reaches near his destination he shouts help me! Everyone near to
his destination saw him and started running towards him to help him.
The guard too helped him and together they all scared the crocodile.
Salim lived a happy life ever after
