Vrindavan, 25.12.17 (VT) At an inter-school story telling competition held at Samvid Gurukulum on Saturday, children amazed audiences with their understanding of positive social messages that come to light in simple kids stories.
Primary school children from dozens of Vrindavan schools participated in the competition. Mrs Agarwal, whose 4 year old daughter participated in the competition said, I didn’t think that my daughter would be able to memorize the story, as she doesn’t know much English, but her teacher worked really hard to make it happen. This is the story she told:
Everyone around us is unique
A crow was living happily when one day he saw a white swan. The crow thought, ‘The swan is so white and I am so black, She must be the happiest bird.’
The swan saw the parrot and thought, ‘The parrot is so colourful and I am so dull. She must be the happiest bird.’
The parrot saw the peacock and thought, ‘The peacock is so beautiful. I am so ugly. He must be the happiest bird.’
At last, the peacock saw the crow and thought, ‘Look at that crow, he is free and flies all day, while I am stuck in this cage.
So, Moral of the story: Everyone around us is unique and special.
After the program, the participants were treated with a gift distribution by ‘Santa Claus’. All of the participants received gift packs including pencil, eraser, chips and chocolate.
