A crow was very thirsty — searching water but did not  find — saw a pitcher — its beak just could not reach the bottom layer— it dropped some stones into the pitcher — the water seemed to rise gradually — thus it managed to  quench  its thirst.

A THIRSTY CROW

Once a thirsty crow was flying to and fro in search of water. But he found no water anywhere. At last, he saw a pitcher nearby and flew to it. He tried to dip his beak but to no effect. Then he tried to upset the jar but failed to turn it over. The efforts only made him more thirsty. At last, he caught sight of some stones lying at hand. He picked up some of those and began to drop those into the pitcher. The water seemed to rise a little. So he went on doing it till the water came up within the reach of his beak. The crow now quenched his thirst by drinking as much as he liked.

     A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED

Once upon a time two friends went on a journey. They had to go through a forest on the way. As they came through the wood, they saw a bear approaching. Both of them became frightened, but suddenly one of them climbed up a tree. The other finding no other alternative, lay flat on the ground without breathing. The bear soon came up, put down its head and smelt his body. The bear took him to be  dead and went away. Seeing the bear going, the other man came down the tree. He then said to his friend, “What did the bear whisper into your ear?”

His friend replied, “He gave me a piece of good advice”.

“What is that?” he asked.

He told his friend that the bear said, “Do not trust a friend who leaves you alone in a danger.”

A lion was  sleeping — a mouse disturbed him — the  lion caught the mouse— the lion let him off for he begged for his life — the mouse promised to help the lion in need — the lion was caught in a net— the mouse cut the net off by his sharp teeth — the lion was set free.

                                             THE LION AND THE MOUSE

Once a lion was sleeping in his den. He was disturbed by a mouse running over his body. He caught it and in anger, was about to kill it. The poor mouse begged for its life. He said, “Pardon me, king of beasts. I shall always be grateful to you if you spare my life for this time.” The lion had pity on him and let him off with a warning. The mouse promised to give any help to the lion in case of need. The lion laughed at the offer. He said, “You are a little animal. How could you help me?” After a few days, the lion was caught in a net and roared. He tugged and strained but to no effect. The mouse heard the lion’s roar and rushed to help him. He bit the net with his sharp teeth and at last cut it off. He thus set the lion free. Thus the great lion was saved by the little mouse.

SHEIKH SAADI’S WIT

Sheikh Saadi was a great poet. Once he was going to the court of the king of Iran. He took shelter in a rich man’s house on his way to the court. Sheikh Saadi was wearing a very ordinary and cheap cloth. The treatment he received in the rich man’s house offended him. But he did not say anything.

On the next day Sheikh Saadi went to the court of the king and was received with honour. He stayed there for a few days. He composed some beautiful poems and entertained the king and his courtiers. He received rich gifts from the king. On his way to his village he again visited that rich man’s house. This time, the rich man was surprised to see Sheikh Saadi in a rich ornamental dress and treated him with the best of the foods and comfort.

While eating, Saadi was surprised to see the rich delicious food and understood the rich man’s attitude. Sheikh Saadi then instead of eating the food, started putting them into the pockets of his rich cloth. This surprised the rich man. “Why are you putting the food into the pockets of your dress?” said the rich man. “I am putting them into the pockets of my dress because these foods are meant for my dress, not for me,” said Saadi. The rich man realized his earlier folly and became ashamed.

There lived a saint in  a deep forest — noticed a mouse one day — a cat came and  he turned the mouse into a cat — a dog came and  he turned the cat into a dog  — a tiger came and he turned the dog into a tiger — the tiger wanted to eat the saint and he changed it back into the mouse.

THE SAINT AND THE MOUSE

There once lived a saint in a deep forest. One day a poor, weak mouse caught his notice. He fed it well. A cat soon came to his hut. So the saint turned the mouse into a cat. Soon a dog came there and the saint now turned the cat into a dog.  The saint and the dog lived quite happily for sometimes.  One evening, however, they saw a tiger there roaming in search for prey. The dog trembled in fear. So the saint at once made it a tiger. Now the tiger felt very happy. In his pride, he prowled about terrifying the other animals of the forest. But it forgot the past and also the kindness of the saint. One day, the tiger thought of making a hearty meal of him.  The saint who could read the mind of the tiger changed it back into the mouse.

UNITY IS STRENGTH

Once upon a time there lived an old farmer. He had three sons who used to quarrel among themselves. One day, the sons were quarrelling again and the old farmer heard them. In order to teach them the value of unity he called his sons beside him and told them to bring him three sticks and some rope. The three sons went and brought the sticks and rope for their father. The old farmer then tied the sticks together with the rope. Then he asked his sons to break the bundle of sticks. The three sons tried and tried but they couldn’t break the bundle of sticks. Then their father untied the sticks and gave one stick to each of his sons. He told them again to break the sticks. This time they all broke their sticks easily. Then the old farmer told his sons that nobody could do any harm to them if they remained united.

GRAPES ARE SOUR

Once a hungry fox was searching for food in the forest. After a while, he came to a vine-yard. Ripe grapes were in the vines. The fox was very hungry and thirsty. The sight of the ripe grapes was joy for him. He was tempted by the beautiful ripe grapes. The grapes were hanging high. The fox thought of having a good meal of the ripe grapes. So, he jumped and jumped to reach the grapes. He did it again and again. But the grapes were too high to reach. The poor fox became tired and thought that it was no good trying. So he went away and said : “The grapes are sour. I don’t want to have the grapes.”

Two  rats stole a piece of bread — they failed to divide  it into two equal parts — they put up their problem to the monkey — the monkey divided the bread into two unequal parts — he bit off a part of the bigger piece — he did it again and again  — the monkey ate it up — the rats realised their mistake.

DIVIDING THE BREAD

One day two rats stole a piece of bread. They failed to divide it in equal parts as both of them wanted the larger part. They fought for that. Lastly, they agreed to put up their problem to the monkey. All the animals of the forest knew him as the wiser animal. They went to the monkey and asked him to divide the bread into two equal parts. The monkey took a piece in each hand. “One piece is clearly bigger than the other.” said the monkey. So he bit off a part of the bigger piece. “That piece now became smaller than the other,” said the monkey. So he bit off a part of the bigger piece. That piece now became smaller than the other. The monkey, therefore, ate a part of the piece to make the other smaller. At last, there was only one small piece of bread left. The rats now begged the monkey to give that piece to them. The monkey wanted it for his fee and ate up that also. The rats indeed left the place becoming sadder and wiser.

A king lived in a green island — he cut down all the trees to build up a palace— a great atmospheric change took place there — it was the curse of cutting down  trees— the king suggested to  plant trees — people became happy again in the green island.

A TRUE REALIZATION

Once there lived a king in an island. There were green trees everywhere in the island. The king decided to build a magnificent palace in the island. So he ordered his men to cut down all the trees in the island. Some opposed the king’s idea but he did not pay heed to it. So people were compelled to carry out the king’s order. They cut down all the trees. As a result, a great change took place in the climate of the island. There was no rain. Crops did not grow. The hot sun shone over their heads. The island looked barren. The king called a meeting of the ministers and courtiers. They discussed the cause of the change in the atmosphere. At last an old courtier said that it was the curse of cutting down the trees. He suggested the king to plant trees. Everybody supported him. The king realised his fault and ordered the people to plant trees all over the island. The trees grew and gradually the island turned green again. Crops grew well, rain came and the people were happy.

A GREEDY FARMER AND HIS GOOSE

There lived a farmer in a village. He had a wonderful goose. The goose would lay a golden egg everyday. The farmer would sell it in the market. He would buy food, clothes, and daily necessaries with the money. He would even save some money every day. The farmer grew rich gradually. But the farmer was very greedy and intolerant. He thought that if he would sell an egg each day, it would take a long time to become rich. He was hasty in nature and wanted to change his lot overnight. He wanted to have all the eggs at a time. He planned to kill the goose to get all the eggs. The farmer told the plan to his wife but she didn’t agree to the proposal. She asked him to be tolerant and not to be greedy. But the farmer didn’t pay any heed to his wife’s advice. One evening the farmer killed the goose and cut out the stomach of the goose. But there were no eggs in the stomach of the goose. Thus the greedy farmer lost everything.

THE FOX WITHOUT A TAIL

There lived a clever fox in a jungle. One day while passing through the jungle he fell into a trap. He could get out of the trap but lost his tail behind. Without his tail the fox looked very odd and strange. The fox felt very upset and ashamed losing his tail. He could not come in front of other foxes as they would laugh at him. But the fox was very clever. He made a plan. He invited all the foxes living in the jungle to a meeting. As the fox was a good speaker, all the foxes came to the meeting to listen to him. The fox was pleased that it was a good gathering. He rose to speak and told them that he had made a great discovery. All the foxes became very eager to listen to him. He told them that their  tail was of no use rather it looked ugly and dirty. If they cut off their tail they would look more beautiful and more attractive. He also told them that he himself had cut off his tail to prove it. He brought out a knife and gave it to them to follow him. The foxes were convinced and they were about to do that. But among them was an old and wise fox. He understood the trick of the clever fox. He told the other foxes that the clever fox had not cut off its tail, but it had lost its tail falling in a trap. As he did not have a tail, he wanted the other foxes to cut off their tails. It was, in fact, an evil trick of the clever fox. All other foxes then understood the evil design of the clever fox. Finding no other way, the clever fox ran away from that place.

Suddenly he stopped walking and asked the boy to pull out a tiny plant growing there. The boy easily uprooted the plant. Then the wise man showed him a slightly bigger plant. With a little more effort he could uproot it. Next the scholar pointed to a big tree and asked the boy to uproot it. The boy tried his best but could not. He said, “This is impossible to uproot it”.

Taking pity on the bee, it at once plucked a broad leaf and threw it near the bee. The bee climbed on the leaf, dried its wings and flew away. It was full of gratitude for the good natured and generous dove. After a few days the bee found that a cruel hunter was aiming at the dove. Seeing this, it flew directly to the hunter’s hand. It settled lightly on it and stung him as he was just to shoot. The hunter missed the aim. He cried out with pain. In the meantime, the dove flew away. The bee had made a good return for the help of the dove.

One day he was cutting down a tree on the bank of the river. While he was cutting it, his axe fell into the river and was lost. He began to weep.

Mercury, the goddess of river, heard his crying and appeared before him. She asked him why he was crying. The woodcutter told her that he had only axe which he lost in the water. The goddess at once jumped into the water and came back with a golden axe. She asked the woodcutter if it was his. But the woodcutter answered negatively. Then the goddess jumped again and came back with a silver axe. This time the woodcutter also refused to take. At the third time, she came with an iron axe. This time the woodcutter shouted with joy, “This is my axe.” The goddess gave him all the three axes. The woodcutter was overjoyed and went home thanking the God.
