How do you feel when you
share your things with others?
Read this play to know how
a tree feels when it helps a boy.
Narrator: Once there was a tree and
it loved a little boy. Every day the boy would visit the tree and enjoy its company.
Tree: Come here, my boy. Come
and climb up my trunk and swing from my branches.
Boy:(swinging from branches)
Ah, what fun!
Tree: Are you hungry? Eat my
Boy:(eating apples) How
Narrator: When the boy was tired, he
slept under the tree. The tree was happy to give its shade. But time went by. And the
boy grew older and went away. The tree was often alone. After some years... One day
the boy came to the tree and the tree was very happy.
Tree: Come, my boy, come and
climb up my trunk and swing from my branches.
Boy: I am too big to climb and
play. I want to buy things and have fun. I want some more money. Can you give me some money?
Tree: I'm sorry but I have no
money, I have only leaves and apples. You can pluck my apples and sell them in the market. Then you will have money.
Narrator: The boy happily plucked
the apples and carried them away. The tree was also happy. But the boy stayed away for a long time and the tree was sad. One day, the boy came back
and the tree shook with Joy.
Tree: Come, Boy, come and climb
up my trunk. Swing from my branches, eat my apples, play in my shade and be happy
Boy: I am too busy to climb
trees. I am getting married and I need a house for my wife and children. Can you give me a house?
Tree: I have no house but you
may cut off my branches and build a house.
Narrator: So the boy cut off the
tree's branches and carried them away to build a house. The tree was very happy.
But the boy stayed away for
a long time and the tree was sad again.
And when he came back after
some years, the tree was so happy that it could hardly speak. Now, the boy was a young man.
Tree: Come, Boy, come. What can
I do for you?
Young man: I am going on a business
trip. I want a boat to take me away. Can you give me a boat?
Tree: All I have left is a
trunk. Cut down my trunk and make a boat. Then you can sail away.
Narrator: The young man cut the
trunk of the tree and sailed away in a boat. The tree was left only with a stump. And after
a long time the young man came back
again. Now he was an old man but the tree recognized him.
Tree: I am sorry, friend, but I
have nothing left to give you. My apples are gone.
Old man: My teeth are too weak for
Tree: My branches are gone. You
cannot swing on them.
Old man: I am too old to swing on
Tree: My trunk is gone. You
Old man: I am too tired to climb.
Tree: (sighing) I am sorry. I
wish that I could give you something... but I have nothing left. I am just an old stump. I am sorry...
Old man: Dear tree, you have always
given. But now I don't need much—just a quiet place to sit and rest.
Tree: (happily) Well, an old
stump is good for sitting and resting on. Come, friend, sit down and rest.
Narrator: The old man did. And the
tree was still happy.
A learned Pundit once visited the court of
Akbar. He told the King and his courtiers that he had mastery over many different languages.
The Pundit could speak many languages fluently. He was so fluent that no one could find out
what his mother tongue was. He challenged everybody at the court to name his
mother tongue. When everyone failed, the challenge was taken up by Birbal.
That night, Birbal went quietly to the
Pundit's room when he was asleep. He whispered into the Pundit's ear and tickled it with a feather. The Pundit, half awake, cried out suddenly and shouted out words in his mother tongue.
Birbal came to the court the next day and
told everyone that the Pundit's mother tongue was Telugu. The Pundit was surprised and accepted the truth.
King Akbar then asked Birbal. "How did
you find the truth?"
Birbal answered. "In times of
difficulty, a person speaks only in his mother
tongue." He also told the King how he had gone to the Pundit's room at
night to find out the truth.
If you keep on going
And never stop,
You can keep on going,
You can make it to the top.
Life is full of mountains,
Some are big and some are small,
But if you don't give up
You can overcome them all.
So keep on going
Try not to stop,
When you keep on going
You can make it to the top.
