The cat was stuck
One day, a man was walking by a road when he heard a cat meowing from the bushes nearby. The cat was stuck and needed help getting out. When the man reached out, the cat got scared and scratched the man. The man screamed in pain but didn't back down. He tried again and again, even as the cat continued to scratch his hands.
Another passerby saw this and said, "Just let it be! The cat will find a way to come out later". The man didn't pay heed but tried until he helped the cat. Once he let the cat free, he told the other man, "The cat is an animal, and its instincts make him scratch and attack. I am a human and my instincts make me compassionate and kind".
Treat everyone around you like you want to be treated.
One hot day, a thirsty crow flew all over the fields looking for water. For a long time, he could not find any. He felt very weak, almost lost all hope. Suddenly, he saw a water jug below the tree. He flew straight down to see if there was any water..... Yes, he could see some water inside the jug!
The crow tried to push his head into the jug. Sadly, he found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then he tried to push the jug to tilt for the water to flow out, but the jug was too heavy.
The crow thought hard for a while. Then, looking around it, he saw some pebbles. He suddenly had a good idea. He started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. His plan had worked!
We see crows almost every day. They are black, scary appearance, and they all look alike. But to most people's surprise, they are as intelligent as a seven-year-old child.
