Swan and Raven

Posted on: October 27, 2012


The raven (a crow like bird with black feathers) lived in a small valley with his family. He picked up small worms and weeds from the grass and in water for his livelihood.

But whenever he saw a swan fluttering its pure white beautiful feathers in a nearby pool, he felt envy and very unhappy. He would then, dislike his  coal black feathers more.

He would say to him, “What makes the swan so white and beautiful?” “Does water have magical qualities to turn one’s feather from black to white?”

So, one day he made up his mind to go to the far off lagoons and ponds to wash his feathers. He wanted to have his feathers  also  as white and fine-looking as swans.

The raven left his comfortable home and went to the pools and rivers. There he washed his feathers many times, but all in vain. His feathers remained as black as ever. It was so heartbreaking for him that he turned into a skinny raven just in a few days.

He could not bear his despair thus, died.

MORAL OF THE STORY:

A change of scene doesn’t change one’s character.

Great story! We see this play out in life all the time, where people think if they do something different they’ll be so much more. Ultimately, even if the appearance changes it doesn’t change the internal self.
