The Hare and The Tortoise

Once upon a time, there lived a tortoise in the jungle who lived life on his own terms. He was calm, polite and non-interfering. In the same town there lived a rabbit who loved to talk about the many prizes he had won for always standing first in a race. One day he came to the tortoise and said, “Why don’t you learn to walk fast?” If you do that, we can have a race someday.” The Tortoise only smiled at him and moved on. The Hare was in a bad mood. Every day, he would go to the Tortoise at the same place and make the same remarks. One day When the hare challenged him again, the tortoise replied, “Okay, I accept the challenge.” He looked around and saw the other animals in the forest clapping and cheering him on.

After a few days the race started! The whole forest stopped to see the result of this great challenge. When the race started, the hare overtook the tortoise in no time. His speed was remarkably fast, which required him to cover a considerable distance on the track. When he looked back and saw how far he had left the tortoise, the hare decided to stop running and rest for a while. He lay down under a huge banyan tree on one side of the track. The enchanting shade of the leaves lulled him into a deep sleep. Meanwhile, the tortoise ran at its slow pace without giving up and stopping. As time passed, he slowly caught hold of the rabbit who was still sleeping. The tortoise passed by him and continued towards the victory line. Slowly but surely, the tortoise reaches the finish line and wins the race.

The whole city started clapping for the turtle. The loud cheering woke the rabbit from his deep sleep. He woke up, he did not understand anything about what had happened. He rubbed his eyes and thought to himself, “God, the tortoise must be still struggling.” The rabbit got up and ran towards the victory post. When he reached there he saw, to his surprise, the tortoise wearing the crown of victory and all the other animals congratulating him. The tortoise saw the hare from afar and smiled at him. The rabbit sat down, regretting his actions that caused him to lose the race against the slowest animal in the forest.
