Once upon a time, three sages, who were also brothers, chose a riverbank to do penance. Their names were Ekata, Dwita and Trita. The clothes they washed every day used to dry in the sky without a clothesline lest they should drop and become soiled. One day, they saw a kite was carrying a female frog.

Ekata shouted at the kite, "Leave it, Leave it."

At once his clothes drying in the sky dropped down to the ground. When Dwita saw this, he shouted at the kite, "Donít leave it, Donít leave it" and soon his clothes also came down hurtling.

When Trita saw that the clothes of his elder brothers fell down, he thought it would be better not to say anything and remained silent.

Some times, it is better not to notice the happenings around and concentrate on self.
