Unity is Strength    

 

Once upon a time, in a small village, there lived an old farmer with his wife and three sons who were always engaged in quarrels with each other, causing great distress to their father. Despite his attempts to bring his sons to their senses, he was unable to stop them from arguing and fighting. One day, when he heard his sons quarreling again, he decided to take a firm stance against their disunity. He took a plan in his hand and called his sons, asking them to bring three sticks and a rope.

 

As the sons brought the sticks, the farmer tied them together with the rope and then asked his sons to try and break the bundle of sticks. The three boys tried and tried, but despite their best efforts, they could not break the bundle of sticks. Finally, their father untied the bundle and gave one stick to each of his sons, telling them to try and break their sticks. This time they all broke their sticks easily.

 

Curious about the reason for their father's actions, the sons asked him, “Why have you made us do these jobs, dear father? What good will come of it?” The wise father then drew their attention to the tied bundle and the separate sticks, explaining to them that when the sticks were bound together, it was impossible for them to break the bundle. However, when the sticks were separated, it became very easy to break them. He urged his sons to take a lesson from this and understand that if they remained united, they would be as strong as the bundle of sticks. On the other hand, if they remained separated from one another like the untied sticks, they would be as weak as a separate stick. He advised them that if they remained united, nobody would be able to do any harm to them. Thus, he strongly urged them not to quarrel or do any evil among themselves, but to always remain united.

 

In this way, the old man successfully taught his sons the valuable proverb, “United we stand, divided we fall.” The sons, realizing the wisdom of their father's lesson, promised to remain united and never to quarrel among themselves again.

UNITY IS STRENGTH


Once upon a time there was an old farmer. He lived with his wife and three sons in a small village. The three sons always quarreled themselves and got separated. This made the farmer unhappy. He tried to bring them to their senses but failed. One day when the three sons were quarrelling, he said, “Stop! Don’t quarrel! It’s bad! But they didn’t listen to him.

Again one day when the sons were quarrelling and the old farmer heard them, he took a plan in his hand. He called all the sons and asked them to bring three sticks. The three boys brought the sticks and rope for their father. The old farmer then tied the stick together with the rope then he said to his sons, “Now try and break this bundle of sticks.” The three boys tried and tried, but they could not break the bundle of sticks. Then their father untied the sticks and gave one stick to each of her sons.  “Now,” he said, “Try and break your stick.” This time they all broke their sticks easily.

The sons got curious to know the reason of those activates. They said all to the father, “Why have you made us do these jobs, dear father? What good will come of it?” Then the wise father told the sons, “Wait a bit, dear sons. I’m making it clear to you.” Now the father drew their attention to the tied bundle and the separate sticks. He explained to them that when the sticks were tied in a bundle, it was impossible for them to break the sticks. But when the sticks were made separate from one another, it was very easy to break them. He asked them to take a good lesson from it. The man could successfully make them understand that if they (the sons) remained united, they would remain as strong as the bundle of sticks. But if they remained separate from one another like the untied sticks, they would be as weak as a separate stick. He also told them that if they remained united, nobody would be able to do any harm to them. So he strongly advised them to always remain united and not to quarrel among themselves any more in future. The sons could realize everything and they promised not to quarrel or do any evil among themselves.

  Thus the old man could effectively teach his sons the valuable proverb, “United we stand, divided we fall.”
