Grandpa's Sacrifice - Motivational Story with Pictures
Dialogue: Hi! Grandpa, a very good morning...how are you?
Old frog: I'm fine dear. How are you doing?
Grandpa: Stop fighting all of you. Don't hurt each other... it is not good. We should love and respect everyone.
Younger frogs: O not again! Another lecture... ooh! Please go away you oldies, don't poke your dirty nose in our affairs.
Grandpa: But ...listen to....
younger frogs: O just shut up and go!
An irritated young frog: Damn this farmer. Irritates me everyday with that same kichuk, kichuk of the pulley. Looks like my ears will pop-off one day.
Another young frog: You are right. He does not let me sleep peacefully.
Third frog: We should drive him away from this place.
All the young frogs: Yes,yes.
Grandpa: We should never indulge in those actions that cause pain to others.
All the young frogs: Not again!
Thereafter, the frogs started shouting in chorus, whenever the farmer came to the well to fetch water. One day when he was standing by the well and crying due to his inability to water his field, a fisherman offered to help him out.
Farmer: Lets hope it happens!
Fisherman: Now let us go home. We will come back after a few hours.
The fisherman returned after 4-5 hours. All the frogs had by now been trapped in the net.
Fisherman: Have a look for yourself. Didn't I tell you, my plan never fails me. See how they are shouting for help. Hold your patience for a few more minutes before you are all finally here.
Younger frogs: We are sorry grandpa. Please forgive us.
Grandpa: Listen! I started biting the rope when I noticed the net spread inside the well. While doing so, I lost my remaining teeth. Just have a look!
(Saying this grandpa opened his toothless mouth.) The net started moving upwards when only a little bit of rope was left to be bitten. I watched helplessly. However, your combined weight inside the weakened net helped you come back from the jaws of death.
All the younger frogs: we promise you Grandpa, from today onwards, we shall be obedient to our elders, respect them and take care. We shall never humiliate them.
Thereafter, all the frogs started living happily, in peace and harmony. The farmer also heaved a sigh of relief and never toubled them again.
