THE JACKDAW AND THE DOVES
Once, a jackdaw saw a flock of doves was being fed by a man. The jackdaw wished to become a dove so that he would not have to toil hard for food. The jackdaw painted himself white and joined the flock of the doves. Because of his changed colour, the jackdaw was readily accepted by the doves. He started enjoying free food from human beings. One day, the jackdaw became too happy of his situation and broke into a song. When the doves heard the strange voice, they started pecking at the jackdaw till he fled from the flock. Now, the jackdaw went back to its flock of jackdaw. The jackdaws could not recognize him because of his white colour and did not make him a part of their flock. Thus, the foolish jackdaw had to fend for himself.
