The bee and the dove
A bee once unfortunately fell into a river with a flow . It was being swept away by the strong waves of water .
A dove was sitting on a branch of a tree at that time . Its eyes fell upon the bee and saw that it was in sorry plight . Taking pity on the bee , it at once plucked a broad leaf and threw it near the bee .
The bee climbed on the leaf, dried its wings and flew away . It was full of gratitude for the good -natured and generous dove .
After a few days the bee noticed a cruel hunter taking a careful aim with his gun at its benefactor .
The dove's life was in danger . Realizing this grave situation , it flew directly to the hunter's hand , settled lightly on it and stung him as he was just to shoot . The hunter missed the aim . He cried with pain . In the meantime the dove flew away .
The bee had made a good return for the help of the dove .
Do unto others as you wish to be done by .
