Its better to be practical then to be learnt

In a village there was 3 great scholars who were very proud of their knowledge.One of the scholar had a servant .They called him bhutti.Bhutti was hard working and honest man.One day all the 3 scholars decided to go to the city to show their knowlege and earn money.So they decided to take bhutti with them so that he can carry their luggage on the way .Bhutti was eagar to go with his master as he has no family member of his own.On their way they decided to rest as it was getting dark in the jungle.To pass their time the 3 scholars started talking about their knowledge and their conversation leads them to argument about who is the intellegent of them all.They asked bhutti to decide instead bhutti told them that this is not the right time to fight as it is dark and not safe.Suddenly they saw something shining a few distance ahead when they came closer they saw lion bone lying around.The 3 scholars decided to show their knowledge one by one on this dead lion.One scholar took out medicine from his bag rub against his palm and threw on the bones.The bones got flesh immediately.The second scholar took some leaves from the plants rub it against his palm and threw on the flesh It got his eyes,nose and remaining parts of his body.They both were very happy to prove their intellegence .They asked the 3 scholar to show his part then bhutti suddenly spoke master please stop this madness i am sure you all are great but this is no time to show your intellegence i am not intellegent like you but be practical if this lion comes to life we all will be dead.The scholars told him to keep quite and continued with the acts.Bhutti requested them to wait for a few minutes untill he climbs the tree and then they can continue with the acts.They all started laughing at him and called him a coward.As soon as the 3 scholar brought lion to life the lion attacked all 3 of them and ate his master.Bhutti by the presence of his mind saved his life and went home the next morning.
