The Boastful Crow

complete the story A flock of geese flew down to a beach where a solitary crow was hopping around. The crow watched them with disdain.
“How gracelessly you fly!” he said to the swans. “All you know is how to flap your wings. Can you glide? Can you somersault in the air? No, that’s beyond you. Let’s have a flying competition. I’ll show you what flying really is!”
One of the swans, a young, sturdy male, took up the challenge, whereupon the crow flew up and began to display his flying prowess. He flew in circles, swooped down like an arrow, and performed a variety of acrobatics in the air. Then he flew down, cawing triumphantly.
Now it was the swan’s turn. He launched himself into the air and began flying over the sea. The crow flew after him, making all sorts of derisive comments about his manner of flying. On and on they flew till finally the land was lost to sight. Water stretched endlessly on all sides. The crow’s comments became less and less frequent and finally, stopped altogether. He had begun to tire. Eventually he became so tired that he found it hard to stay in the air. He had to struggle to keep from falling into the water.

What do you think happened to the crow finally?



The crow fell into the sea and almost drowned because he cannot swim. The crow cried for help and the swan saved him by carrying him on his back.

So the crow sat on the swan and asked him to take him to the ground where he accepted his defeat. Thus he was brought back to the land safely.


He struggled too hard but was not able to help himself. He finally fell into the water and and as he was in the middle of the sea a shark came and was after him. When Swan heard the cries of the Crow he looked back and found that the Crow was in danger. Crow prayed to the swan "Please save me." Then the swan said you said" You knew swimming and boasted a lot about your strength ,now where is your strength?" " I am sorry. Please help me" said the Crow. The Swan stretched his wings held the Crow and carried him till an island came. When they reached the land the Crow apolozised to the Swan. MORAL- Never boast about yourself. God has made many creatures and everyone has a good quality and every one is good in something.


The crow got exhausted & fell into the water. Moral of the story: Never criticize anybody without knowing what they are & never boast too much about yourself.
