The Hare and the Tortoise

A hare was always proud of its speed. He often laughed at a tortoise who moved very slowly. The tortoise was very humble. But, the hare kept on teasing the tortoise.

One day, the tortoise challenged the hare. The hare was surprised. "How can so slow a runner challenge me." He accepted the challenge. The race began. Within no time, the hare was far off.

The hare was reaching the winning post. He thought "let me wait for the tortoise, soon as the tortoise comes, I;ll jump up and win the race." He fell asleep there itself.

Suddenly, he heard clapping sounds. He woke up to see the tortoise slowly crossing the winning post. The hare lost the race.

Moral of this story is : Slow and Steady wins the race.
