Gorelal was a famous sculptor. His sculptures looked real ones.
One day he saw a dream that after fifteen days, the demon of Death would come to take him. Gorelal prepared nine statues of himself and when on the 15th day he heard the Demon of Death coming, he took his place between the statues.
The Demon could not recognise him and was astonished to see ten Gorelals instead of one. He rushed back to the God of death and told the matter.
The God of death got annoyed and set out to take Gorelal himself. Gorelal was alert and stood motionless. The God of Death initially got perplexed.
But he thought for a moment. He said, “Gorelal, these sculptures would have been perfect but for one mistake.”
Gorelal was unable to suffer the least blemish in his work. He came out and asked, “Where is the fault?” God of Death caught him and said, “HERE“. The statues were faultless but Gorelal was caught because of his pride.
