Moral(s) of the story: wisdom

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful parrot who lived in a jungle with his brother. The parrot was very beautiful and lived happily with his brother.

A hunter was passing through a jungle one day and saw the pair of beautiful parrots on a tree. He said, “The parrots are so beautiful. I should give them as a present to the king.” He decided to catch the beautiful parrots and made a trap. The parrots were caught in the trap at once and the hunter was very happy. The hunter took the parrots and presented them to the king as a gift. The king was happy to see the parrots. He accepted the gift from the hunter and put the parrots in a golden cage. The servants were ordered to take care of the parrots.

The servants used to take care of the parrots and would offer them delicious food. The parrots were treated well and the servants took extreme care of them. The young prince would come to play with the parrots. The prince treated them with the utmost love. He loved to play with them.

The parrots were happy to receive so much love and affection from the king. They were given everything without actually doing anything. One of the parrots said, “We are lucky to have been brought here.” The other parrot replied, “Yes, we are living a peaceful and comfortable life in the palace and with that, we are being loved too.” They both were very happy and satisfied with their lives. They were the main attraction of the palace and everyone loved them.

Everything was fine until one day the hunter who had brought them in the palace returned with another gift for the king. This time, the hunter brought a black monkey with him. The king was very happy to receive the present. He happily accepted the gift from the hunter.

Gradually, the monkey became the main attraction in the palace. He was loved by everyone and the servants took care of the monkey and fed him delicious food. The servants at times forgot to feed the parrots. The young prince started playing with the monkey. He even gave more attention to the monkey and the poor parrots were neglected. The parrots felt very bad. The younger parrot said, “The monkey has ruined our lives. Nobody looks out for us anymore.” The older brother replied, “Do not worry little brother. Nothing is permanent in this world. Everything will change soon.”

The monkey was mischievous and active. One day, he created a lot of problems in the palace for everyone. Servants were fed up with the monkey and the young prince was afraid of the mischievous black monkey. One day, the king ordered to throw the monkey out in the jungle. The monkey was thrown in the jungle.

Now, again the parrots became the centre of attraction of the palace. Everyone started giving all the attention to the parrots. The parrots were very happy as their fun days were back. The younger brother realized what his elder brother told him. “Time never stays the same,” the younger brother said. The elder brother replied, “See, I told you nothing is permanent. You should never get depressed in bad times.” The younger brother then decided to never lose patience in bad times or unfavourable conditions.


Moral:

Nothing is permanent in our lives. Everything changes with time and nothing stands still.
