“King, you have to take an urgent action before our people are starved to death. It has been months since the last rain.
Lack of rain has made the rivers dry. What to do now”? Elephant the Minister asked the king.
The hot summer has already taken a heavy toll on the animals. It made water very scarce in the forest. To get some water animals had to travel long distance. There were fighting between animals for water. If the situation continues like this all of us will perish in this hot summer. “We have to do something now.” the elephant said.
The king was very brave and intelligent but he didn’t want to take a decision all by himself. So
ordered all animals to assemble before him the next day to discuss the issue and resolve the problem.
Next day all animals assembled before the King Lion. The Minister Elephant explained the purpose of the meeting. All started discussing the issue. Many animals complained about the long distance they have to travel to fetch the water. Finally, the a Beaver gave a good suggestion. Let’s build a long canal from the water source. That way there is no need to go to water. Water will come to us. Everybody liked the idea of creating the canal. You know Beavers are famous for their dam building skills. Everybody liked the idea of building a canal.
After a few weeks, they had a long canal from a river that was miles away. All animals were very happy because they can beat the summer with their own canal. Kids, this story teaches us something valuable. If you make a good plan and do something, it is going to be a success.
