Once upon a time there was a hare
who
boasting he can run faster than any one else
is forever teasing tortoise
for his slowness
then, one day
the irate tortoise answered back
who do you think you are?
there's no denying you are swift
but even you can be beaten!
the hare squealed with laughter!!
beaten in a race ? by whom ?
not you surely
I bet there is nobody in the world that can win against me, I am so speedy...
now why don't you try?
annoyed by such bragging,the tortoise accepted the challenge
a course is planned, and the next day at dawn, they stood at starting line.
the hare yawned sleepily, as the meek tortoise tried to slowly off
when the hare saw how painfully slow his rival was
he decided, half asleep on his feet, to have quick nap.
"take your time" he said..
I will have forty winks and catch up with you in minute.
the hare woke with a start from fitful sleep
and gazed around, looking for the tortoise
but the creature is only a short distance away
having barely covered the third of the course.
waiting aside, relieved. The hare decides, he might as well have his breakfast too..
and off he went to munch some cabbages he noticed in a near by field
but the heavy meal and hot sun made his eye lashes droop
with a careless glance of the tortoise, now half way along the course
he decided to have another snooze
before flashing past the winning post..
and smiling at the thought of the look on tortoise's face
when it saw the hare speed by, he fell asleep
and was soon snoring happily
the sun started to sink below the horizon
and the tortoise, who have been plotting towards the winning post since morning
now scarcely a yard from the finish
at that very point the hare woke with a jolt
he could see the tortoise a speck in a distance
and away he rashed
he left and bounded at a great rate
his tongue longing and gasping for breath
just a little more and he be first at the finish
but the hare's last leap was just too late.
The tortoise had beaten him to the winning post
poor hare
tired and in disgrace
he slumped down beside the tortoise who was silently smiling at him..
"slow and steady does it every time" he said
