Moral(s) of the story: pride

One day, stars went to the moon and asked him who shines brighter. The Moon proudly replied, “It’s me”. The stars started smiling and said, “No, we shine brighter”. The Moon did not agree with the stars. He believed he was the one who shined brighter. The stars decided to go to the children and asked them the question. The Moon and the stars went near a window and asked the children to tell who shined brightly. The children said, “Moon”. Suddenly, one big cloud came near the moon and children said, “No, Stars shine brightly”. When the cloud disappeared, they again said “Moon”. The stars and the Moon decided to ask someone else.

They went to another window and saw an old man. They asked the old man, “Who shines brightly?” The old man said, “Oh, it’s very difficult for me to answer because I am too old, and I can’t see properly.” He said he cannot help them.

Then, they went to another window and saw a mother singing a song for her baby so that he could sleep. They asked her the same question and the mother replied that her baby’s face is brighter than both.

Then, they finally decided to ask Earth. The Moon was very happy, he felt that the Mother Earth will take his name. On asking the question to the Earth, he replied, “It is true that the moon shines brightly in the night and its light is very useful for fruits, vegetables, and green plants. But my son! Don’t be proud. Remember this light is not your own, you are getting it from the Sun. So, don’t feel proud of the things which are not yours “.

The Earth continued, “The twinkling little stars are not so small. They are the buddies of the sun because the sun itself is also a star. Don’t be ignorant, if a few stars come together their heat and light will be unbearable for us. The twinkling of stars also provides beauty to the night. Don’t fight with each other.”

Each one felt satisfied and thanked the Earth.


Moral:

Do not feel proud about things that do not belong to you. The very thought will destroy you. One should never underestimate anyone.
