Never Grumble over your lot

It was a fine day during rainy season. A peacock was dancing happily in a forest. Suddenly he was reminded of his ugly rough voice. His face fell and tears welled up in his eyes.


Suddenly he saw a night-in-gale sitting in a nearby tree. “What a sweet voice she has got! Everybody loves and praises it. But when I utter a sound, everyone laughs at me. How unlucky indeed!” lamented the peacock.


Just then appeared Juno—wife of Jupitor, cheif of gods.


“What makes you so sad,Mr peacock?” asked she.


“I have got such a beautiful body that all praise it. But my voice – how ugly and rough! It is no use having this beauty,” sobbed out the peacock.


“Never grumble over your lot. God has given various gifts to several creatures—to you beauty, to the eagle strength, to the night-in-gale song, and so on. Nobody except you is unhappy.”


Moral of the story: Learn to live with what you have got.
