Where there is a will there is a way
There was a crow . At a very hot summer day he was feeling very thirsty . He flew from place to place in search of water, but he could not find it anywhere . He was very sad and disappointed at not getting a drop of it .
At last he saw a jug of water . He flew down to the jug and sat on its edge . When he craned his beak to quench his thirst , he, saw to his great discouragement , that the water was just at the bottom .
His beak could not reach such a low level of water . He even tried to overturn the jug but could not . It was too heavy for him to move .
When he was just about to fly in despair, he thought of a plan . Suddenly his eyes fell upon some pebbles lying near the jug . He flew to them, picked up the pebbles one by one and dropped them into the jug .
Slowly and slowly the level of water rose and came up to the neck . The crow was overjoyed to see this . He dipped his beak, quenched his thirst and flew away .
