When I was in the 4″ class. I always slept with my grandfather who is no more today. Before sleeping he always discussed with me one story on daily basis. One day he talked about that story from which I can something also regarding my future.
I remembered because today I live with my family also with my siblings.
Today I live with my members because I know the value of unity that if we live together then neither can break our relation nor can play with our life and this thing I learned from that story.
I am having a whale of a time because today our relationship is too strong. Furthermore, we are close to each other. So I feel today like a bird that I am lucky that I listened to this story and remember it forever.

Well, I have heard lots of stories in my childhood and still, sometimes I like to listen from my grandparents. Here, I am going to talk about a story that I vividly remember. When I was in 6th standard, my father told me a meaningful story. This is the story of ‘Thirsty crow’.
Once there was a crow. He was very thirsty and it was a hot summer day. the crow flew here and there in search of water because he was thirsty. But he couldn’t find water anywhere.
At last, he reached into a garden and saw a pot there. Unfortunately, there was very little water in it, he couldn’t drink it. But he didn’t upset and thought a plan. He brought some pieces of stones and put them into the pot. Slowly, the water rose up. He drank the water and flew away.
The moral of the story is never lose hope until your last try.
I used to hear lots of stories from my parents and grandparents which gave me lots of life lessons. All in all, I feel this story always motivates me to reach one destination whatever the situation is. So this is a story that I heard from my father and still remember.

Well, I am an innovative person and I love to grab knowledge through videos exploring distinct places or by stories.
Here, I would like to talk about a story that has remained etched in my memories. I vividly remember, when I was in primary school, my English mentor told me an inspirational story of the turtle and the hare.
The story was about the person’s power of dedication and determination towards any ambition.
In the story, there was a hare who had conceit on his ability of excellent running. He always wanted to flaunt his capability in form of a turtle.
On the day, the hare bragged and asked the turtle for a race. The turtle agreed and finally, the race began. The hare was an overconfident and under-estimate turtle due to which, he faced defeat, whereas the turtle won the race because he was focused and perseverant.
On the winning of turtle, the hare had an egg on the face and he ate humble pie.
This was a great story and I was extremely happy when I listened to it for the first time.
I still remember this story because this usually gives me the motivation to accomplish my aspiration step by step without any lethargic attitude.
Besides this, I learned a lesson that as long as the person is steady and determined, he will always get the victory, no matter what his speed is.
To cap it all, this is the story which is listened from my teacher in school and still remember.
