Once upon a time there lived a small turtle named 'Kittu' in a lake near jungle. One day Kittu saw some birds flying in the sky. He too felt like flying with them. He expressed his desire to his mother. His mother got scared and explained Kittu that he can never fly like birds because he had no wings. He can rather swim like a fish and she asked Kittu to learn swimming. But Kittu was not satisfied with her reply and was determined to fly.
So one day Kittu climbed up a big stone and asked a little bird who sat there whether she could help him to fly. The bird said to Kittu, " You should not try things which are out of your limits. Go back to your mother ". However Kittu didn't like her reply and waited there for some more time. Later a giant bird came there and Kittu asked her to help him to fly. The big bird tried to convince the little turtle. But finally she gave up. She agreed to help Kittu in flying.
She held him in her big claws and started flying.
Kittu was very happy on reaching the sky. He felt as if he was flying on his own. So he asked the giant bird to free him. The bird said," what are you saying? If I leave your hold, you will fall down ". But Kittu started shouting at the bird to free him and let him fly on his own. Annoyed the bird opened up his grip and flew away. As a result Kittu started falling down. He screamed for help. Bur nobody was there to help him. He fell on his back and and cried due to pain. And then he remembered his mother.
Kittu understood his mistake and very soon started swimming in water with his mother.
One should not blindly imitate others.
