THE TRAVELLERS AND THE CROW
The raven was always held in high esteem by humans, because its crowing was taken as a sign of omens. The raven got all the attention from human beings. The crow was jealous of the attention which the raven got. The crow also wished to get similar importance from human beings. Once, some travelers were passing by. The crow perched up on a branch and started crowing loudly. The travelers at first paid no attention to the crow. When the crowing became too loud, one of the travelers picked up his sling and shot the crow. The crow had to suffer lot of pain. When someone tries to imitate others, he often fails and becomes a butt of jokes.
