Once upon a time, there was an old man, living in a village far from the city. This old man was very much interested in keeping beautiful birds. One day he saw a beautiful bird for sale while passing by a bird-shop, so he decided to buy that bird. After a long discussion and bargains with the shopkeeper, the old man paid a lot of money for the mentioned bird.
The old man took the bird home and caged him immediately. The bird was caged for many years and was fed regularly with nutritious food. The bird was really bored of life, but he was heartily singing.
Some of the free birds used to come near to the caged bird and used to eat the feed scattered by the caged bird. One day the door of the cage was left open mistakenly. But the bird didn’t escape from his cage. He just came out played with other free birds, and then went back to his cage.
The wife of the old man saw this scene. She was quite surprised hence she narrated the story to her husband. This behavior of the bird shocked the old man too.
The old man quickly came to the caged bird and asked him, “why didn’t you run away from the cage?” the bird replied, “this was a good opportunity for me to prove my loyalty, you have been feeding me with good and nutritious food for the past so many years, and you are the one who is taking care of me, therefore I shouldn’t forget your sympathy and pities though you have deprived me of my freedom”
Moral of the story
We human beings play different roles in our life such as a father, mother, sister, brother, son, friend, husband, wife etc. At every stage of life we receive and provide some sort of support to each other therefore we all are supposed to be loyal and stand by each other. And don’t forget the goodness of each other and don’t retaliate for a tiny unjust action of a friend/any relative.
