Tortoise and the Hare

Once the tortoise was running on the road at his natural speed. A rabbit saw him. At first he laughed at the tortoise’s slow speed, then he remarked. How slow! The tortoise became sad and angry.

But he did not lose his patience. He said to the rabbit, “Do you want to race with me?” At this the rabbit laughed again and said, “What do you say? Race with you! Very amazing!”

The tortoise only smiled and said nothing. The date and time of the race were fixed. The old monkey was made the judge. On the day the race was to be held, both the rabbit and the tortoise gathered at the fixed place and time. The race began. The rabbit ran very fast.

The tortoise moved ahead at its natural speed.

The rabbit stopped at a place and looked back. “There is no trace of the tortoise. Let me rest for a while,” thought the rabbit and sat down under a tree to rest. Then he fell asleep. The tortoise kept moving ahead; saw the rabbit sleeping and reached the winning spot.

When the rabbit woke up, he saw that the tortoise was approaching the winning spot. He ran fast but alas! He could not reach the winning spot before the tortoise. The tortoise reached the winning spot before the rabbit and won the race.

Moral: Slowly and steady wins the race.

Witty Deer

There lived a deer in the forest. The deer was very cute. The animals of the forest loved him very much. But there was a cruel lion king in the forest who had announced that every day one animal should come to him for food otherwise he would kill all the animals.

All the animals were worried. They gathered at one place and discussed the matter. But they could not find any solution to save themselves from the cruel claws of the lion. The deer was also listening to everything very carefully. It was very clever.

Finally the deer said, “Don’t worry, I will take care of that lion. Tomorrow I will go to him and kill him.” Everyone present there started laughing loudly. They asked him about the plan. The clever deer said, “Just see tomorrow.”

The next day morning the lion was sitting in front of his den, waiting for his wonderful meal. Every animal of the forest was hiding here and there to see what happens. Everyone was sure that the cute deer would be killed today.

Everyone saw the deer slowly coming towards the lion. The lion was smiling. The deer cursed him loudly. The lion jumped over him but the deer escaped and ran towards one direction. The lion ran after him. Everyone was surprised. The deer was running very fast but the lion was not far behind him.

Suddenly the deer changed direction towards the river. The lion was chasing him so fast that it seemed that in a few moments the lion would catch and kill the deer. All the animals were surprised.

They were praying for the life of the deer. There was a small broken bridge on the river. As per the plan the deer crossed the bridge very carefully and crossed the river.

As soon as the lion tried to cross the river from the same bridge, it broke from the middle. The turtles which were standing in a row to look like a wooden bridge started swimming in different directions.

The lion fell in the middle of the river. He did not know how to swim, so he drowned. The deer had won the battle against the lion. Every animal was appreciating the intelligence and wisdom of the deer.

Moral: Wisdom prevails over every situation.
