A great bird named Bharunda lived on the banks of a lake. He had two heads but a single body. One day,as the bird was wandering on the bank of the lake, he found a fruit, which was as delicious as ambrosia. One of his heads mumbled, "Oh what a fruit. I am sure the heavens have sent it for me. I am so lucky."

Hearing this, the second head said, "O brother, let me also taste the fruit you are praising so much."

The first head laughed and said, "Both of us have the same stomach. It makes no difference whether I eat it or you eat it. I shall give it to our beloved. She will be very happy." Bharunda thus gave the fruit to his wife. The second head was disappointed at this action of the first head.

One day, the second head found a poisonous fruit and told the first head, "You treacherous fellow. For what you have done to me, I will eat this poisonous fruit and avenge your insult."

The second head said, "You fool, if you eat that, both of us will die because we have the same body."

Ignoring his warning, the second head ate the poisonous fruit and both of them died.
