The King and The Spider Story
Once upon a time, there was a king. He was a wise, brave and kind King. People were pleased in his kingdom.
Once, a neighbouring King attacked his country, and he was defeated. Many of his soldiers were killed. Others ran away to save their lives.
The King ran away and took shelter in a forest cave. He was very depressed. His courage had left him.
An interesting scene captured his attention. A spider was trying to weave a web across the cave ceiling. As the spider crawled up, it broke a web thread and fell. But the spider did not give up. He tried to climb again and again. Finally, the spider succeeded in climbing up and completing its web.
This made the King ponder, “If a small spider can face failure so courageously, why should I give up? I will put all my effort into trying until I succeed”. The spider’s perseverance taught the King a valuable lesson. It filled him with new hope and courage.
He left the cave. The King gathered his soldiers and attacked his enemy. This time, he didn’t give up, he fought bravely. And defeated the enemy and regained his kingdom.
