Tortoise and the Hare
Once a tortoise was walking on the road with his natural speed. A hare saw him. At first he laughed at the slow speed of the tortoise, then he commented. What a slow speed! The tortoise became sad and angry. But he did not loose her patience. He said to the hare, "do you want to have a race with me?" The hare again laughed at this and said, "What do you say?" A race with you ! Quite surprising !"
The tortoise smiled only and said nothing. The date and time of race was fixed. The old monkey was made the judge. On the day, when the race was going to be held, both the hare and the tortoise gathered at the fixed place and time. The race started. The hare ran very fast.
The tortoise moved with his natural speed.
After moving to a place, the hare stopped and looked back. "There is no trace of the tortoise. Let me have a rest for some time," thought the hare and sat under a tree to take rest. Then he slept. The tortoise moved on and on; saw the hare sleeping and moved on to the winning point. When the hare got up, he saw the tortoise approaching the winning point. He ran fast but alas! He could not reach the winning point before the tortoise. The tortoise reached the winning point before the hare and won the race.
Moral: Slow And Steady Wins the Race.
