1. Ali Baba and Forty Thieves

English Story For Class 11

Ali Baba, a poor woodcutter, had a rich brother, Kasim, who never shared any of his money with his brother. Instead, he ill-treated Ali Baba, his wife and son. One day, as Ali Baba was cutting logs in the forest, he saw a lot of people on horses and they hid.

He climbed a tree and kept watching the forty horsemen. The men had saddles full of gold and they took them to a large rock. One of the men shouted, ‘Open up, Mole’, and a door opened in the rock and the man entered the cave. Others followed. After a while they came out and the leader shouted, ‘Stop it, mole’.

When the thieves left, Ali Baba went to the entrance of the cave. He said the magic words and entered. He was amazed to see all the gold, silk, jewels and heaps of golden crowns. Realizing that it was okay to steal from thieves, Ali Baba decided to take some gold home for himself and his family.

After coming home, he showed the gold to his wife. His wife wanted to know how much gold he had. She went to Qasim’s house to borrow his wife’s scales so that she could weigh the gold. She didn’t want Kasim and his wife to know about the gold, so she said they were weighing meat. Qasim’s wife did not believe Ali Baba’s wife and started wondering from where did he get the money to buy meat.

He cheated Ali Baba’s wife by pouring honey at the bottom of a pot. The next day, when Ali Baba’s wife returned the scales, a gold coin was found stuck in the honey. Kasim’s wife knew his secret. When she told Kasim about his brother’s gold, he became jealous.

He went to Ali Baba’s house and asked his brother where he got it from. When Ali Baba saw the gold coin, he told his brother about the cave and the forty thieves. The next morning, Kasim went to the cave with ten donkeys carrying ten huge chests. He went inside saying the password but forgot the magic word to get back out.

The thieves found him inside and murdered him. When Qasim did not return, Ali Baba went in search of him. He found his brother’s body hanging inside the cave and brought the body home. With the help of Qasim’s maid Marjaneh, they buried Qasim properly without thinking about the cause of Qasim’s death.

The thieves find the body gone and soon realize that someone else must know their secret. They set out in the city in search of him. They made several plans to find the man. However, each time his plans are foiled by the clever Marjaneh. The thieves finally found the house of the man they were looking for. They did not know his name Ali Baba.

The leader of the thieves plans to kill the man who stole from them. He bought twenty donkeys and forty big kerosene pots with loose lids. He loaded two pitchers on the donkeys, and filled each pitcher with oil. He told his forty-nine men to take their swords and daggers and hide them in pots. He ordered them to be ready to jump out and attack the man who had stolen their goods.

The leader filled the fortieth pitcher with oil. He then went to Ali Baba’s house, pretending to be an oil merchant in need of a bed for the night. Ali Baba gave him food and a bed and a stable for his donkeys. The thief left his forty jars in a long line in the courtyard.

Marjaneh discovered their plan and killed all of the twenty-nine men by pouring boiling oil over them. When the leader learned why his men were not ready to fight, he saw that they were all dead and fled. A few weeks later, the chief of thieves disguised as a merchant went back to the city. She soon befriends Ali Baba’s son, Khalid, who takes her home for dinner.

Ali Baba invites her inside, but Marjaneh soon becomes suspicious of the man. After dinner, Marjaneh danced with daggers to entertain the guests. As soon as he finished, he raised his dagger and killed the dinner guest.

All forty thieves were killed and Ali Baba and his family were safe once and for all. Ali Baba was so impressed with Marjaneh that he introduced his son to her husband. Khalid is happily married to Marjaneh and they have a child. Ali Baba decides to show Khalid the cave with the treasure. Khalid promised that he too would show the cave to his son when he was old enough. And so Ali Baba and his family were never poor again.

2. Be Grateful

English Story For Class 11

A wealthy landowner named Karl often walked around his vast estate congratulating himself on his great wealth. One day while riding around his estate on his favorite horse, he saw Hans, an old tenant farmer. Hans was sitting under a tree when Karl passed by.

‘I was just thanking God for my food,’ said the swan.

‘If that was all I had to eat, I wouldn’t feel like giving thanks,’ protested Carl.

The swan replied, ‘God has given me everything I need and I am grateful for that.’

The old farmer added, ‘It is strange that you have come so far as I had a dream last night. A voice told me in my dream…. The richest man in the valley will die tonight. I don’t know what it means, but I thought I should tell you.’

‘Dreams are nonsense,’ sniffed Carl, and galloped off, but he could not forget Hans’s words…the richest man in the valley would die tonight.

He was apparently the richest man in the valley, so he invited his doctor to his house that evening. Karl tells the doctor what Hans said. After a thorough examination, the doctor said to the rich landowner, ‘Carl, you are as strong and healthy as a horse. There’s no way you’re going to die tonight.

Nevertheless, for reassurance, the doctor stayed with Carl, and they played cards all night long. The next morning the doctor leaves and Karl apologizes for being so upset over the old man’s dream.

About nine o’clock a messenger appeared at Karl’s door.

‘What is it?’ Carl demanded.

The messenger explained, ‘It is about the old swan. He died in his sleep last night. You don’t need money to be rich, be grateful for what you have and you will feel happy.

3. Do not Give Up

English Story For Class 11

One day I decided to quit my job and end my life. It seemed that there was no reason for me to live anymore. I lost my job, my relationships, my spirituality… everything… I wanted to leave my life.

I went deep into the woods to have one last talk with God
“Lord”, I asked,
“Can you give me a good reason not to quit?”.
His answer surprised me…

“Look around”, she said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?
“Yes”, I replied.
“When I sowed the fern and bamboo seeds, I looked after them very well.

I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly rose from the earth.

Its brilliant green color covered the floor. Still nothing came out of the bamboo seed. But I didn’t give up on bamboo. In the second year the fern became more vibrant and plentiful.

And again, nothing came out of the bamboo seed. But I didn’t give up on bamboo. They said.

“In three years, nothing had yet come out of the bamboo seed. But I will not give up.

In the fourth year, again, nothing came out of the bamboo seed. I won’t quit.” he said.

“Then in the fifth year a small sprout came out of the earth. It seemed small and insignificant compared to the fern…but after just 6 months the bamboo grew to over 100 feet tall.

It took five years to grow roots. Those roots made him strong and gave him everything he needed to survive. I will never challenge any of my creations that it cannot handle.”

She asked me. “Do you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you are really putting down roots”.

“I won’t give up on bamboo. I’ll never give up on you.”
“Don’t compare yourself with others.” They said. “Bamboo had a different purpose than fern.

Still they both make the forest beautiful.” “Your time will come”, God told me.

“You’ll Rise Higher”.
“How high should I go?” I asked
“How high will the bamboo rise?” he asked in return.
“As high as possible?” I asked “Yes.” He said, “Give me glory by rising as high as you can.”

I left the jungle and brought this story back. I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you… never, never, never give up

don’t give up world

4. Cooking the Khichdi

English Story For Class 11

It was winter. All the ponds were frozen.

In the court, Akbar asked Birbal, “Tell Birbal! Would a man do anything for money?” Birbal replied, ‘Yes’.

The emperor ordered him to prove it. The next day Birbal came to the court with a poor Brahmin who had only one paisa left. His family was dying of hunger.

Birbal told the king that the brahmin was ready to do anything for money.

The king, in need of money, ordered the Brahmin to stay inside the frozen pond for the whole night without any clothes.

The poor Brahmin had no choice. The whole night he lay inside the pond, shivering. He returned to the court the next day to receive his award.

The king asked, “Tell me, poor Brahmin! How can you withstand the extreme temperature overnight?”

The innocent Brahmin replied “I could see a faint bright light a kilometer away and I was standing beside that beam of light.”

Akbar refuses to give the Brahmin his reward, saying that he has been warmed by the light and has suffered the cold and that it is a hoax.

The poor Brahmin could not argue with him and so returned disappointed and empty-handed.

Birbal tried to convince the emperor but the emperor was not ready to listen to him at all.

After this Birbal stopped coming to the court and sent a messenger to the king saying that he would come to the court only after making his own khichdi.

Even after 5 days, when Birbal did not come, the king himself went to Birbal’s house to see what he was doing. Birbal had lit the fire and kept the pot of raw khichdi one meter away from it.

Akbar asked him, “How will Khichdi be cooked with a fire one meter away? What has happened to Birbal?”

While cooking the khichdi, Birbal replied, “O my great King of India! When it was possible for a person to receive heat from light a kilometer away, it is possible for khichdi, which is only a meter away from that place.” It’s on. Source of heat, to cook.”

Akbar understood his mistake. He called the poor Brahmin and gave him 2000 gold coins as a reward.

It was a detailed paper with the location of buildings, stables and even a house plan. Two days later he got his paper back, with F written on the first page.

After class he asked his teacher why he got such low marks.

The teacher said to him, “This dream is unrealistic for a boy like you, who has no money, no means and who comes from a traveling family. There is no chance that you will reach this goal.”

Then the teacher gave him the opportunity to rewrite the paper with a more realistic approach.
