ఒక రోజు ఒక రైతు తన పొలంలో విత్తనాలు నాటుతుండగా ఒక కుందేలును చూస్తాడు. ఆ కుందేలును దాని పేరు అడగగా అది మర్చిపోయానని చెప్తుంది. అప్పుడు రైతు తన ఇరుగు పొరుగు వాడైన కుమ్మరిని అడగమని చెప్పాడు. కుందేలు వెళ్ళి అడగగా తాను తన స్నేహితుడైన క్షురకుడిని అడగమని చెప్పెను.
వెళ్ళి అడగగా తాను పనిలో ఉన్నాడని, తన చెల్లెలిని అడగమని కోరెను. తన చెల్లెలు కూడా చెట్టుకింద కూర్చున్న చెప్పులు కుట్టేవాడిని అడగమంటుంది. అతను కుందేలును గట్టిగా పొమ్మని అరిచాడు. అప్పుడు కుందేలుకు ఒక జాలరి కనిపించగా, తనను అడుగుతుంది. అతనికి కూడా తెలియకపోవడంతో నిరాశ చెంది నడుస్తూ ఉండగా, ఒక పాఠశాలలో టీచరు, విద్యార్థులకు చెప్పటం విని తన పేరు కుందేలు అని విని సంతోషిస్తుంది.
