    Say:

    The goat was scared because of seeing the butcher holding a knife. Because of that the goat didn't gain any weight even though it was fed twice the usual amount of food.

    Re: flock of sheep

    Moral of the story:

    Birbal explained to Akbar " King! This will apply in the case of humans too. Eventhough we eat healthy food items the same would not stain(benefit) on our body if we have fear in mind. It is better to eat lesser food without fear than panic in the minds of eating nourish foods" Akbar accepted Birbal's opinion.

    The appropriate title for this story would be " Weight of the goat". Are the members able to modify the thread title once posted? If yes,kindly guide me that where the option is?

    We don't use either "stain" or "benefit" that way. Also, it is unclear what is meant by "lesser food" (also not an English expression).

    Yes, the title of a thread can be changed by a moderator or, I think, but the one who created the thread.
