I got the idea for this comic strip from a story which I was listening to few days ago. The story goes like this…
Once there was a lion. He asked a rabbit, “Who is the king of the jungle?”
The rabbit got scared and he said trembling, “You, my lord! You are the king of the jungle”.
The king moved away and started walking with swagger.
After few moments he met a fox. Lion asked the fox, “Who is the king of the jungle?”
The fox replied in his sleazy voice, “Of course you, my lord! Who else could be the king of the jungle”
The lion stretched his chest and started moving with more swagger.
He reached an elephant. With an arrogant tone, the lion roared at the elephant, “Who is the king of the jungle?”
The elephant grabbed the lion by his neck and said politely, “I’ll tell you who’s the king of the jungle”.
Then the elephant shook the lion for some time and smashed him on the ground a couple of times.
After the elephant released the lion he said in a shaking voice, “You could have just said so”
The moral of the story is that many people, with some power on others, try to put their weight around. Good leaders never do that. Every boss has a boss. So stay humble and kind to those who are less powerful than you.

Nice one 😀
The one I remember, in last panel after getting the beating from elephant Lion says “Agar pata nahi hai toh seedha bolna nahi pata, maarta kyun hai.”
