A Thirsty Crow (modified version)

“Once upon a time there was a crow. One hot afternoon it was thirsty. It searched for water but couldn’t find. At last it saw a water pot. It looked inside it. There was very less water in it. Its beak couldn’t reach there. It got an idea.” A kid was narrating me the mugged up story.
“It flew and found a straw in a nearby dustbin. It brought that it its beak and put it in the pot. It drank water and flew away.” I said.

What do you think the child will laugh heartedly on hearing this or will say this is not correct and will tell me the rest of the story in which the crow put the pebbles in the pot to raise the water level?


  1. I am sure he knows the real story

  2. This is good one... I thought crow asks for help in English. A desi gets impressed.. and helps it... child will know that talking in English has become so important...and seeking help is a must... alone in todays world even if you are creative.. you don't achieve much..

    Well...I have also asked a question in my poem here..

  3. The third one. He'll even start arguing seriously if you do not reveal to him that it is just a humour.

    Our kind of education has had some bad effects on our children!!

  4. Chandrika,

    Did he give you confused look or not?

    Take care
