Hi, children here is an old moral story for you. This is a story of a crow which acted smartly in the right way to find a solution for its problem instead of losing hope and crying without thinking for a solution. Yes you got it, this is the story of a thirsty crow or the clever crow

"Caw, caw.. caw, caw"... a crow cawing thirstily on a hot summer morning. He went on searching for water everywhere but could not find water anywhere. The poor crow was tired of searching water in the hot weather and lost all its energy.

"Oh! I am too tired and can't fly any more in search of water. God, please help me" thought the crow.
With such a positive thought, the crow went on searching and searching for water. At last he found a pot and he became very happy.

"Oops!, there is too little water in it and I can't reach the water. What should I do now?" thought the crow.

But he did not get disappointed and this made the crow to think and think and think to achieve success in getting water.

"Wow! so many pebbles.

Idea!!,  I can drop these pebbles one by into the water till the water comes up, so that I can quench my thirst."

Immediately the crow plunged into action and started picking up pebbles with its beak and dropped these one by one into the pot. The pebbles are heavier, so these sank to the bottom and made the water level to rise up and up. Finally, the water level rose to the neck of the pot and the crow's beak could reach the water.

"Yes!, got it", the crow thought happily and rejoiced his success. He drank the water, quenched his thirst and flew away happily... caw.. caw....

Dear children, what did you learn from this age old story? Can you tell the moral of the story?

Moral of the story: Never give up in vain but keep thinking and thinking till you find a solution to your problem. Think and act cleverly.
