The Sparrow|گنجشک


 

 

Once upon a time a sparrow got captured by a man.

The sparrow asked: “What will you do to me?”

The hunter said: “I will kill you and eat you.”

The sparrow replied: “I am very small and would be just a little bite for you. If you let me go I will teach you three lessons which could be useful to you for a life time.”

The hunter thought that wasn’t a bad idea and responded: “Alright, tell me the first lesson now in my hand, the second lesson when you are flying and the third one when you sit on that tree.”

 

The sparrow agreed and said: “Never regret your loss.”

The hunter opened his hand and the sparrow continued: “Never believe the impossible.”

The sparrow then sat on the tree and said: “If you had killed me, you could have owned the 2 kilograms of gold stone that I am carrying in my stomach. You would have been rich. But you let me go.”

The hunter got so sad but there was nothing he could do, and asked for the third lesson.

The sparrow said: “You didn’t listen to the first two lessons, why do you need to hear the third one? I told you not to regret your loss, and you did regret losing me. I told you not to believe the impossible, how can a little bird like me carry 2 kilograms of gold?

You should know the third lesson by now; When greed comes along, people believe the impossible. And when they lose everything to reach the impossible, they regret their loss.” And then flew away.

  2. What a profound story! I love it. I’m sending it to my son, who is a dreamer.

    minor suggestion: In the following line, I would add the image of the bird flying away, as the image of flight is often associated with achieving the impossible.

    The hunter opened his hand and the sparrow continued: “Never believe the impossible.”

    You might also come up with a catchier title. Perhaps “The three lessons of the Sparrow.”
