Oops, what happened? the baby elephant suddenly woke up from the sleep.

Baby elephant Jingo was sleeping under a Jackfruit tree. A big Jackfruit fell upon his back from the high tree. It was painful a bit, but he was happy to see it was a Jackfruit. He loved the Jackfruit very much and thought it was a gift sent by God. Now a question started bothering him. What to do now? Just start eating the tasty fruit or share it among his family?

His first thought was to eat the tasty fruit without sharing it with others. But a second thought flashed in his mind asked him to share it with his family and friends because that is what God likes. So he took the big Jackfruit with his long trunk to his home.

At home, the elephant family was busy getting ready for a dance party that evening. Seeing the baby elephant carrying the jackfruit in its trunk made them happy. Because all of them loved that fruit very much. They ate the jackfruit which tasted great and sang a beautiful song praising the small Elephant for his sharing.

Sharing something with others gives us immense joy, don’t hold back anything good for yourself but share it generously with others.

Some facts about elephants: They sleep standing. They have a long trunk which can carry heavy things like wood log easily.
