“Please, please don’t do that, if you uproot the tree we will be homeless, my children will die, why are you doing this?” the bird pleaded the elephant. But the elephant just ignored the poor bird’s request, continued to uproot the tree.
But the tree stood there firm. In the past, it had survived heavy thunderstorms, so this elephant was nothing before the tree. The elephant pushed the tree harder and harder, but nothing happened.

His failure in uprooting the tree made him turn back and went hiding into the jungle. The bird thanked the tree for protecting her home.
