The Camel and the Fox
Once, there were two friends, a camel named Lambu and a fox named Chotu. They lived near a village with a sugarcane field by a beautiful river. One day, Chotu got an idea. He told Lambu about the delicious sugarcane in the nearby field and suggested they go there at night. Lambu was worried about getting caught by the villagers, but Chotu promised to help.That night, Lambu carried Chotu on his back as they reached the sugarcane fields. They happily ate the sweet canes until they were full. Chotu got excited and howled loudly, which brought the villagers running. Lambu got beaten up while Chotu hid. Afterward, Lambu felt hurt and betrayed. They decided to cross the river again, and this time Lambu had a plan. He stopped in the middle of the river and refused to stretch further. Chotu begged him not to, but Lambu realized Chotu wasn’t a true friend, so he stretched, and Chotu fell into the river.
The moral of the story: Always be a true and selfless friend.
Write a story on, ‘The Thirsty Crow.’
‘The Thirsty Crow’
One hot day, a thirsty crow flew all over the fields looking for water. For a long time, he could not find any. He felt very weak, almost lost all hope. Suddenly, he saw a water jug below the tree. He flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. Yes, he could see some water inside the jug!
The crow tried to push his head into the jug. Sadly, he found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then he tried to push the jug to tilt for the water to flow out, but the jug was too heavy.
The crow thought hard for a while. Then, looking around it, he saw some pebbles. He suddenly had a good idea. He started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. His plan had worked!
Moral: Think and work hard, you may find solution to any problem.
