It is true that one should never act hastily and rashly. If they act hastily they tend to do mistakes. There is no use in crying over something that has already happened. The farmer’s wife acted hastily and killed the mongoose who had saved her baby from a deadly snake. She realized her mistake after killing the mongoose. But now it was of no use The family had lost a good and trustworthy friend out of anger. She should have looked for her baby before killing the mongoose. So we should always act after thinking of the consequences.
