The Proud Ant

Just that the ants dont get tired and has the reputataion for being the most hardworking amoungst all animals. Even the big animals like lion and bear appreciated them. They rest at nothing and are always seen at work. While some appreciated them, other animals were puzzled.

One member in the big colony of ants was curious what other animals in the forest thought about them. Hence it set out to find what the other animals knew about the ants.

The ant first came across the bear. The bear said it thought highly about the ants and wished it could be as hardworking as the ants.

The ant then came across a cockroach. The cockroach said it could never be like the ants, as it thought the ants never sleep.

As it went further it met a crow and asked what it thought about ants. The crow said that the ants was always busy and didn't understand the need to be busy and working all the time. It said that life should be enjoyed and not spend working all the time. The ant said that the crow di…

The Young But Foolish Cranes.

The young cranes as a group wanted to be different from their elders in their community. They thought they were clever and smart than the aged cranes. When it was time for their migration, the young cranes questioned the rational behind migration when there was sufficient fish available in the river.

However, as time passed and summer approached the quantity of fish in the river decreased. The most clever crane amoung them, instead of taking this as a sign to fly away, suggested they should tak…

One day as he went scouting for new sources of food he saw a grasshopper which was injured and could hardly move. The ant went near the grasshopper's leg to take a bite, when the grasshopper which was in deep pain asked the ant to leave it alone. The grasshopper said it was very badly injured and could harly move and would die shortly, all it requested was to be left alone instead of being torn to pieces by the ant. The ant pondered on the grasshopper's meek request and said it was leaving the grasshopper alone for now, however will be back in a few hours. The grasshopper thanked the ant, and the ant left the place to look for food elsewhere.

As the ant wandered around looking for food it was encountered by a lizard. The lizard looked really hungry and as it was about to put its tongue out to eat the…
