This is a story of cashewnut, jamun, peach and pistachio.

Moral(s) of the story: judgement

Once there was a rich merchant with vast lands. He had a hobby of gardening and grew many types of exotic plants in his yard. From tropical spices to middle eastern dry fruits. He had everything from pistachio nuts to rose bushes to creeping pumpkins. 

But one tree stood out from them all- his Jamun tree. The Jamun tree was very tall and grew luscious Jamun fruits. The cashew nuts were jealous of them because of their taste, the apples were jealous of them because of how pretty jamun were. The peach tree was angry because of how tall the Jamun tree was. 

They would always harass the Jamun tree for being so abnormally tall. The Jamun tree never said a word. He minded his own business and took care of his own fruits. 

One day, the merchant’s cook burned something in the kitchen and a fire started. Everybody started panicking but the merchant immediately called for a fire brigade. The smoke wafted through the windows and into the garden. All the small shrubs and plants could not breathe. They coughed and struggled for air but the tall Jamun tree was happy and fine.


Never judge a book by its cover. Everyone is special and unique in their own way.
