Last month we saw how a flock of pigeons flew towards grains spread over a piece of land in the midst of the forest. They set aside the advice of their leader Chitragreeva and heeded the words of an old pigeon in the flock, not to say no to the food provided to them by God.
The pigeons landed and started eating the grains on the ground. Soon they realized they are trapped in the net. Immediately they started blaming the old pigeon for their fate. “It’s not the age, but wisdom that makes one wise. We unnecessarily heeded to your advice and are now trapped. We should have listened to the words of our leader”, they started blaming and lamenting
To this Chitragreeva responded, “Let’s not blame him for this state. He had suggested what he felt is good. What happened to our intelligence? Elders say, if someone suggest something we should listen to that, but take decision after thinking through and due diligence. We didn’t do that. It’s our bad time that we are trapped. Further, when faced with a challenge we should look at avenues to overcome the problem.
Blaming and lamenting doesn’t help. Let’s explore the means to overcome this challenge”. Thus saying the leader steered the conversation towards solution.
He suggested, “I have an idea. If we all fly together at once we can first get away along with the net to a safer place. Don’t doubt about the feasibility. Together Everyone Achieves More. Small blades of hay when woven together make a strong enough rope to tie an elephant. Together we can easily lift this net away from here.
