Short Story of Thirsty Crow
Once upon a scorching summer day, a clever and thirsty crow found itself flying across the arid landscape in search of water. The sun beat down relentlessly, and the crow’s throat grew parched.
After a long flight, the crow spotted a village with houses and trees. Desperate for water, it descended and began its quest for a drink. To its dismay, every well in the village had a water level too low for the crow to reach.
As the crow pondered its predicament, it noticed a pitcher at one of the houses. Hope surged within the thirsty bird. Fluttering down, it discovered the pitcher had some water, but it was too low for the crow to reach by simply dipping its beak.
Undeterred, the clever crow surveyed its surroundings. It started collecting small pebbles one by one and dropped them into the pitcher. The water level gradually rose, allowing the crow to take sips and quench its thirst.
The villagers, observing this intelligent act, marveled at the crow’s ingenuity. The crow, having satisfied its thirst, took off into the skies, leaving behind a lesson about resourcefulness and problem-solving.
And so, the tale of the thirsty crow became a fable, reminding all who heard it that wit and creativity can overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges.
