There was a peacock who often boasted about his beauty. Everyday he walked to the banks of a large lake and look at his own reflections and say “Oh! What a beautiful bird l am! Look at my colorful tail!”.
Once the peacock saw a crane on the banks of the lake. He said with a sneer to the crane, “What a colorless bird you are! You have no beautiful and colorful feathers like mine”.
The crane replied, “Of course! I don’t have beautiful feathers. But my feathers can make me fly across the lake. Can your feathers But, make you fly?”. There was no reply from the Peacock.
IT IS BETTER TO BE USEFUL THAN TO BE BEAUTIFUL
The Cows and The Lion
There was a village near a jungle. The village cows used to go upto the jungle in search of food.
In the forest there lived a wicked lion.
He used to kill a cow now and then and eat her. This was happening for quite sometime. The cows were frightened.
From then on, all the cows went into the jungle in a herd. When they heard or saw the lion, all of them unitedly moo and chased him away.
Oneday, all the cows held a meeting. An old cow said, “Listen everybody, the lion eats one of us only because we go into the jungle separately. From now on we will all be together”.
The lion attempted to attach on the cows several different times, but failed every single time. The cows stayed together and drive the lion off from the herd.
The lion lost hope of eating the cows. However he couldn’t keep away from the field, it is difficult for him to resist a good meal even with a little chance of getting it.
Well then, one day the cows had fight. This time when the lion came emerged and starving for food and watch them as he did every day. The lion found the cows separated from each other and on the corner of the field. They were as far from one another as they could get.
This was now much easier possibly ever to attack the cows one after another. Which he did to his great delight.
