A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

complete the story Myna was flying home one evening. After a lot of effort she had finally found a delicious worm. It was late evening and her young ones would be waiting eagerly for their dinner. Suddenly Myna heard a shrill scream. It was Mr. Ant, calling out for help. He had fallen into a stream and was struggling to keep afloat.
Myna flew down to see if she could help Mr. Ant. She realized that she could save him. All she had to do was throw Mr. Ant a lifeline and haul him up to safety. But if she opened her beak to pick up a string, the hard-found worm would fall out. Besides it was getting late. On the other hand, if she left Mr. Ant in the stream, he would surely die.


HERE ARE THE STORY ENDINGS FROM OUR VALUABLE VIEWERS.

Myna flew to the shore. Placed the worm on a leaf. Since it was dead, it would not move anywhere. There was a little string that she threw in the water for Mr. Ant. Mr.Ant held the string and safely got to the shore. Myna flew back to the leaf, picked up the worm, and went home to treat her young ones.

Myna saved Mr.Ant and got her fruit after all!

Mr Ant then took Myna to a place where there was lots of delicious worms. Myna could feed her younger ones without any problem thereafter.

Myna acted fast. What was she to do? Then an idea struck her mind and she flew to Mr. Ant and said-"Mr. Ant! Grab hold of the worm. I shall pull you up." Mr. Ant tried to catch hold of the worm but it was too slippery. Terrified that he may not be saved after all, he fainted. Now the worm in Myna's beak was still alive. He knew that he was on a rescue mission and he caught hold of the ant quickly before the tide could carry it away. "Go on Myna!"-he shouted."Pull us out!"And Myna pulled Mr. Ant out. Once out of the water, Mr. Ant regained his conciousness. When he heard of their bravery, Mr. Ant thanked them both. And then he said,"Why Myna! Are you going to eat Mr. Worm?" Myna nodded. "Don't Myna, don't!"-said Mr. Ant. "Spare Mr. Worm's life. After all, he helped me. If he wouldn't have caught my hand, I would have died." Myna replied,"I know, Mr. Ant. But what can I do? My babies are starving to death and I got Mr. Worm with difficulty." "But I can help you in that."-said Mr. Ant." I will give you grains instead of Mr. Worm. Not only today, but I will give grains everyday so that you don't have to eat Mr. Worm." Myna agreed and from then onwards, they lived happily ever after.

Then, Myna had an idea! She decided to feed her babies first then fly back to help Mr. Ant. Then, he would be safe and dry. She would be the hero of the entire Ant kingdom. The moral of this story is: You should always help a friend and they shall give you something in return.

So Myna then decided to tear off a leaf from the tree and held down the leaf to Mr.Ant so that he could come out safely. Mr. Ant then got on to the leaf. Myna then pulled the leaf out of the water. Mr.Ant was stunned to watch himself alive. He was too thankful to Myna.

Suddenly she had an idea. She thought to herself that if she could leave the worm in her mouth and with her claws she could pick Mr.Ant up. In the end Myna saved Mr.Ant and was just in time for her young ones.

achala

Myna should come down to the stream and should give support to Mr. Ant with the worm. Mr Ant will climb on the worm and she should fly to her house with worm and Mr Ant on the worm. Thus she will not lose the worm which she got after lots of effort and she will save Mr. Ant also.

hemlatasindhura

Myna thought of helping out Mr.Ant although she knew that leaving worm will leave her without food for her children. As soon as she helped Mr. Ant come out of the water she started crying and told her story to Mr. Ant. Mr Ant told her that he knew a place where many worms lived under a tree and Myna went away with Mr. Ant happily.

So he goes under a tree and picked up one leaf and dropped it in the water. The ant sat on that leaf and easily came out. So the ant thanked the pigeon and they moved away happily.

Ammara

Mr. Ant was Myna's friend and Myna could not let him die in front of her eyes. she looked here and there but no one was there to help. Besides Myna had no time to spare. Myna started thinking fast. If she helped Mr. Ant, her babies will die of hunger and she could not turn away when her friend was in trouble. At last Myna decided what to do. She took a deep breath and threw aside the worm. Then quickly she picked a leaf from under a tree and threw it in the water. Mr. Ant climbed on the leaf and Myna pulled the leaf out. GREAT RELIEF! Mr Ant thanked Myna. But Myna was looking sad and Mr Ant knew that she had no food for her babies that's why she was so unhappy. so Mr Ant repaid Myna by giving her half the friuts and grains he had stored for the winter. Myna was very delighted and from that day Myna and Mr Ant became best friends. It is true that A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED.

lildude

Myna was in a dilemma now. She had to feed her starving babies, still she chould not let Mr. Ant die in front her. So in an instant she made the decision. She put the worm down broke a leaf from the nearest tree and placed it in the water nearest to Mr.Ant so that the ant could climb onto the leaf. Next she flapped her wings to guide the leaf to the shore. On reaching the shore Mr.Ant thanked Myna and promised that he would help her, if any need ever arised. Myna thought 'what could a ant ever help her in'. However she politely smiled at Mr.Ant and flew away to find food for her starving babies. Many days later a hunter came to the forest. He saw Myna sleeping in her nest with her babies. He started to climb the tree to catch Myna. Mr. Ant was walking along when he saw the hunter climbing the tree to catch Myna. He ran up the tree and bit the leg of the hunter. The pain in the leg made the hunter scream, miss his footing and he fell down the tree. The commotion meanwhile aroused Myna who looked down to see a hunter slowly cursing and limping away. Mrs. Owl who lived in the next tree told Myna about the whole incident. Myna went to Mr.Ant and thanked him and praised him for his bravery. Mr.Ant told Myna that he was just repaying his debt for saving his life earlier. So a friend in need is a friend indeed.

A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

FORAM

The myna now being 'between the devil and the deep blue sea' could not think of what to do. Looking around she found no one and then thought would find some other food for her babies but at that point of time it was necessary to save Mr. Ant. So she threw the worm that she was holding between her beak and at once started rummaging for a leaf. On finding one, she threw it for Mr. Ant's help. She then pulled him out and Mr. Ant thanked her for saving his life. This reminds us of the proverb "A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND IN DEED".

Raul

So he goes under a tree and picked up one leaf and dropped it in the water. The ant sat on that leaf and easily came out. So the ant thanked the pigeon and they moved away happily.

liyleucoama

Myna was put in a very difficult situation: She had to choose between Mr. Ant's life or her babies. She got an idea! She grabbed a little piece of wood and dropped it into the water so Mr Ant could hold himself there until she fed her babies. After that she took a lifeline and saved him. Like that Myna and Mr.Ant became best friends!

shivani

Myna keeps the worm on the side and takes a leaf and throws it into the water. Mr. Ant climbs on it and then Myna went and pulled the leaf out of the water and pulled him ashore where he is safe then she takes the worm and goes back home. After a few days Myna was sitting on a tree branch where a hunter came to kill her. Mr. Ant saw the hunter and before he could shoot Myna Mr. Ant went and bit him on his leg the hunter gave a loud cry. Myna looked back and got warned about the hunter and she flew away and later came back to thank Mr Ant. Mr. Ant told her a friend in need is a friend indeed

Ariel Smith

Mr.Ant was in trouble and she helped two different kinds of animals: her young ones and Mr.Ant. She did a kind thing and also saved two lives: her young birds and Mr.Ant. What if she didn't help Mr.Ant and she flew right by? Well Mr. Ant would have died and she would not have many friends that would trust her to help them so why would they help her if she was in trouble!?

Okeechobee

So the bird figured "Oh well, those stupid ants bite me all the time anyways..."

Michael Dennison

So Myna did the selfless thing and released the worm - lucky worm! She then flew down and rescued Mr. Ant. After being deposited on the bank, Mr. Ant thanked Myna and being a Modern American, went off to continue gathering grain. Myna called out, "Mr. Ant! Wait! How will I feed my children?" But, Mr.Ant, being too focused on his own "life" scarcely heard her. So we see how this fine parable is with today's "civilised" ( I use the term loosely...) Modern people (American and other societys). Someone who needs something will appear to be your "best friend" until they get what they want from you. Thereafter, unless they again need something from you, they scarcely know you or are too "busy" to even acknowledge you or your need. A sad turn for the "Modern" world!

HAJRA

Arbeen Shaffi

Myna decided to save the ant instead of thinking about the worm and its young ones hunger. So she put the worm on the ground and took a leaf and threw it in the stream. The ant came out of the stream and was saved. The ant thanked the myna but the myna was upset. Ant asked the reason and she told everything so ant decided to give the food which was reserved for winter and the myna was happy and thanked the ant and took the food and flew away. This is a true story for a friend in need is a friend in deed.

anna

She then thought of a brillant idea. She put the worm on a leaf and threw the leaf into the water. The leaf floated and the worm could not escape. She then plucked out the branch and told Mr ant to hold on to the branch. Mr ant held on to the branch and Myna pulled him out. Mr ant thanked her and went home. As for Myna, she picked up the worm from the leaf and then flew home.

S.Malini

He would have dropped down the worm and helped Mr.Ant knowing that no animal would eat worms. Another reason is if he ever is in danger one day even the ant would help him.

Scott

Myna, without hesitation, drops the worm and streaks down to save the struggling Mr. Ant. After dropping her precious meal, Myna swoops down to the surface of the water and with her delicate claws, takes hold of the downed Mr. Ant. Soaring through the current, Myna safely places Mr. Ant on the shore. In a debt of gratitude, Mr. Ant embraces Myna and simply states 'follow me my friend'... After some distance, Myna is led to the most fertile of grounds; rich, moist and filled with an abundance of life giving forces. By a stone, off in the distance, Myna spots the largest collection of worms ever seen. She looks to Mr. Ant and with a glimmer in her eye, flies toward the worms which will provide the much needed sustinence for her young...

Had she not saved life of her friend, she would have felt shame for herself all the time. Mr. Ant would not be a thankless person who has noticed the withdrawal of worm from Myna, but was a true friend of Myna who would fulfill the need of Myna that to was arised for saving his life. A friend in need is friend indeed.

She tied the first half thread to the branch and the worm.The other piece of thread ,she made a mat out of it. and she flew down to the stream and dropped the mat there.Mr Ant climbed on the mat and he floated to one of the banks of the stream.
