A THIRSTY CROW
Once a thirsty crow was flying to here to there and in search of water. But he found no water anywhere. At last, he saw a pitcher nearby and flew to it. He tried to dip his beak but to no effect. Then he tried to upset the jar but failed to turn it over. The efforts only made him more thirsty. At last, he caught sight of some stones lying at hand. He picked up some of those and began to drop those into the pitcher. The water seemed to rise a little. So he went on doing it till the water came up within the reach of his beak. The crow now quenched his thirst by drinking as much as he liked.
একটি পিপাসার্ত কাক
একদিন এক পিপাসার্ত কাক পানির সন্ধানে এদিক ওদিক উড়ছিল। কিন্তু সে কোথাও পানি খুঁজে পাচ্ছিল না। অবশেষে সে কাছেই একটি কলস দেখতে পেল এবং এটির দিকে উড়ে গেল। সে তার ঠোঁট ভেতরে ডুবানোর চেষ্টা করল কিন্তু কোনো কাজ হলো না। তারপর সে কলসি কাত করার চেষ্টা করল কিন্তু কাত করতে ব্যর্থ হলো। তার চেষ্টা শুধু তাকে আরো পিপাসার্ত করে তুলল। অবশেষে তার নাগালের মধ্যে কিছু পাথর দৃষ্টিগোচর হলো। সে এগুলোর কিছু নিল এবং এগুলো কলসের মধ্যে ফেলতে শুরু করল। পানি একটু উপরে উঠছে বলে মনে হলো। তাই সে এটা করলো যতক্ষণ না পর্যন্ত পানি তার ঠোঁটে পৌঁছায়। কাক এখন ইচ্ছামতো পানি পান করে তার তৃষ্ণা মেটালো।

TITLE: A THIRSTY CROW/WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY
It was a hot summer day. A crow became very thirsty. It began to move here and there in search of drinking water but in vain. The crow did not lose hope. It, at last, noticed a jar at a little distance. Relieved and with great joy it flew nearly down to it. There was little water at the bottom of the jar. The water of the jar was beyond the reach of the crow. It tried to drink but could not drink at all. On the other hand, the pitcher was too heavy for the crow to overturn. It became disappointed . It was in deep thought what could be done in this moment. Finding no other way to quench its thirst, the crow was about to fly away.
At that time it saw some pebbles beside the pitcher. A trick came into its head and it started to throw the pebbles into the jar one after another. At one time the water of the jar rose to the brim. The crow drank the water to its heart’s content and flew away. Thus the crow got relieved of his thirst.

Story Writing – WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY
The crow was really dying for water. He did not lose hope even when he failed to reach the bottom of the jar with his bill. He looked around for help, thought over this or that but nothing worked. He said to himself, “If I give up trying I will simply die from thirst. So, I need to find out some ways and means to get water from the jar. At last I will have found water after a long search. Now managing to have water from the jar is my business. I must try a hundred times before I give in and die from thirst.” This thought renewed his mental strength more than ever before.
Suddenly a thought crept up into his mind and he began to fly around from one place to another in search of pieces of stones or brick, lumps of dry mud. He got many of them and brought all the pieces near the jar and then picked up the pieces one by one and dropped them into the jar.
This time his plan worked. With a happy surprise he saw that the level of water was gradually rising up from the bottom. This result of his effort again invigorated his spirit and strength. He dropped all the pieces of stones and brick bats into the jar and finally the level of water rose high enough for him to touch it with his bill. The crow took a deep breath, heaved out a sigh of relief and drank the water with his hearts fill and succeeded in saving himself.
