They approached the lion with the offer of one animal to be eaten by him every day. One day, it was the turn of a rabbit. The rabbit chose an old wise rabbit among them. He took a lot of time to reach the lion. The lion was getting impatient on not seeing any animal coming to him and swore to kill all the animals the next day. The rabbit then strode along to the lion by sunset. The lion was angry at him, but the wise rabbit remained calm. He told the lion that it was not his fault. He added that on the way, another angry lion attacked on him. Somehow, he escaped to reach safely. He said that, lion had challenged the supremacy of his Lordship. The lion was enraged and asked him to show the location of the other lion. The wise rabbit led the lion towards a deep well. It showed the lion’s reflection in the water of the well.

Cute animal—named Dumpy—became very friendly—gave him milk—my mother angry—food disappeared—scratches on furniture—socks torn into shreds—mother gave away Dumpy to a neighbour.
‘Dumpy—The Cutest Pet !
That day my father came home with a kitten. He saw it shivering in the cold at the door of a shop and was overwhelmed with concern at the thought of freezing temperatures of the January night. I, for one was overjoyed, for I’ve always nurtured a keen desire to own a pet, but never got my mother’s approval for it, for she detests the idea.
The kitten was adorable and extremely cute. I instantly decided to name it ‘Dumpy’. I fed it milk and made a cozy bed for it, putting an old blanket in a broken basket. I really felt good to see Dumpy warm and comfortable. Dumpy was a very friendly creature and soon got comfortable in its new surroundings. I loved its company and its playfulness. It would crawl under the sofa or just frolic around the house, much to the annoyance of my mother. She complained about the nuisance it created and fussed about the scratches on the furniture. Moreover, my school-socks were turned into shreds.
Then one day, Dumpy sneaked into the kitchen ! It went about exploring the various preparations for dinner. My mother was out of her wits when she discovered Dumpy’s mischief and made up her mind to give it away to a neighbour.
So that was the brief fulfillment of my dream. But my cute Dumpy is not far away. I go to play with it daily for an hour and we are good friends.

“It was a quiet, cold and dark night like it usually is in winter when all retire to bed early. Suddenly, at the dead of night, a shriek jerked the people in the building out of their beds. It was distinctly the voice of a working lady, “Thief, Thief”, ………… as a thief snatched her purse while she was returning from her duty. Suddenly, the police van, patrolling in the locality, caught hold of him and carried him off to the juvenile home. There, the jail instructor arranged classes for him in different subjects.
It was a boring drill for him. The subjects were not of his interest. Not one for making friends with other inmates, he had found solace in watching television, which was a concession given to them for an hour every day. That day, instead of the regular serial, the channel had shown a French film, dubbed in English. Not being able to follow the dubbed script, he had instead tuned his ears to listen to French, being spoken.
He was hooked. The phonic sounds of language fascinated him, even though he could neither pronounce the words nor understand their meaning. His mind was made up. He requested the jail instructor to arrange French classes for him in ‘home’ in return for his good behavior. By the end of the year, he was able to carry on a simple conversation in French. When the French ambassador in India visited the ‘home’, he was chosen to conduct him around.
Question. Write a story in 200-250 words with the help of the following outline:
Tortoise and hare — good friends — tortoise — known for his slow speed — makes fun of tortoise — challenges him —referee selected — race starts — hare overconfident — takes a nap — tortoise wins.
This is the story of two friends - tortoise and hare. Both the tortoise and hare were fast friends. Wherever they went, they went together. The only difference between them was that tortoise had slow speed while the hare had a fast speed. Sometimes, they both started to go somewhere at same time but due to his slow speed, the tortoise was always late while the hare reached at a fast speed. Thus, the hare sometimes made fun of his friend but the tortoise neglected the hare’s attitude. In spite of being fast friends, they sometimes had petty issues over their speed. The tortoise told his friend that slow speed is not a curse but a boon but the hare never stopped himself from making fun of his friend. One day, the tortoise got frustrated and threw a bold challenge at the hare to have a race. It was decided that one who reached the river bank first would be the winner. They selected their referee and at a fixed time the race started. The hare ran at a fast speed and was miles ahead of the tortoise. He turned back and saw that his friend tortoise was not visible far and wide. Then he decided to have a rest because according to him, the tortoise would take a long time to reach him. He was overconfident of his winning so he lay down and fell asleep. The tortoise continued walking. On his way, he saw the hare sleeping but he didn’t stop and he reached the river bank. When the hare got up, he looked around for the tortoise. Then he started his race at a double speed but found that the tortoise had already reached the river bank. In this way, the tortoise won the race.
Moral : Slow and steady wins the race.

The Terrible Night
It was a cold winter night. Many friends and relatives of mine had come to our house to enjoy the Christmas holidays. After enjoying the campfire and sumptuous dinner, we went to bed quite early as singing, dancing and merry-making had made us tired. We all were sound asleep. Suddenly, I heard a thudding sound. I, immediately switched on the lights. Meanwhile, my father also came there and sensed something wrong. Then, once again, thudding and rumbling sound was heard which sent a shiver down our spine. My father woke up all the family members in the house. With hurried footsteps, all of us ran out shouting to alert as many people as we could. People rushed out of their homes. It was an earthquake which lasted for a minute only but those terrible moments had brought death, destruction and doom. Many buildings in the town collapsed due to that destructive earthquake. Even in our colony, 20 people were found missing and many more lay buried under the debris. The worst-hit victims were the slum dwellers. Thousands of them were rendered homeless as their houses/huts collapsed; children became orphAnswer. As usual, the relief team appeared there but quite late. Meanwhile, the people who were fortunate enough like us, did the needful. The havoc caused by the earthquake will haunt me forever.

They drove the van very fast to the jungle where no one could trace them. After reaching there, they started merry-making with the other members of the group who were waiting for them. Though they made use of the modern technology, i.e., mobile phone to give information to their companions yet they were unaware that the same technology can put them in danger. Actually, the driver, whom they had hit hard, was strong enough to bear the blow. For a few minutes, he lost his senses. Both the dacoits, thinking him to be unconscious, pushed him to the rear seat. But as soon as he regained his senses, he just switched on the ‘Navigation’ App. With the help of this app., the cash guard located the location. During training, they were taught to make use of such techniques in case of emergency. He had already informed the bank authorities about the incident. Immediately, the police was informed.
On the other end, the dacoits were enjoying. They were carefree as they couldn’t think of any danger in that dense jungle. Suddenly, the area echoed with police-sirens.

It was a Sunday afternoon. We had gone for a picnic to a park. Suddenly, I found that my seven year old sister was missing from the group. We went in search of her in the woods and found her nowhere. We shouted her name at the maximum pitch but to no avail. My mother started weeping after calling her name. Our voice echoed and returned to us. We became very afraid and prayed to God to help us in finding her. Suddenly, we heard the trumpet of elephants. It made us sure of some mishappening with her. After a few moments, we saw an elephant running inside the forest. My brother advised us to follow the beast. We did so. What we saw there was beyond any explanation. As we followed that elephant, we saw that animal filling its trunk with water from a pond in that forest. Without making any noise and holding our breath, we waited for its next action. Then the elephant hurriedly went to a place and sprinkled all that water on somebody and aired with its large ears. And to our surprise and terror, it was none other than my sister who was lying there unconscious.
As soon as water was sprinkled over her face, she became conscious and sat up. On seeing all of us, she came running to us. When we asked her how had she reached there, she told that outside the picnic spot, she had seen that elephant. As all of us were busy in merry-making, she quietly came out and gave some eatables to that animal. Then it became friendly with her. She sat on its back and reached there. But on hearing its trumpet in the woods, she realized that she had been separated from the group and fainted out of fear. We felt ourselves lucky to meet the angel in that beast.

The Lost Girl
My grandmother used to take me to my school in the morning. One day, we were walking towards school and noticed a little girl whimpering on the roadside. My grandmother approached her and asked what the matter was. The girl was hardly three or three and a half years old and could barely speak properly. She replied in a very innocent manner that her mother was lost. My grandmother could not help smiling, for it was she herself who was lost.
Grandma took her up in the arms and looked around to check if someone was coming up for her, but there was no one. We carried her along, thinking that if someone came looking for her, then they would probably catch up with us since we were on foot.
The girl was too small to direct us to her house. We decided to inform the police on patrol, but grandma refused to hand over the girl to anyone but only to her parents.
We brought her home and she was soon relaxed, munching chips and watching cartoon network–blissfully unaware that she was actually lost !
I had already made up my mind to have her as a sister when her father approached us. He informed that they were from another city and were there to attend a wedding. The girl had wandered away while her mother was talking to a friend.
Grandma admonished him for being careless, but was happy that the little girl was finally safe.
Question. Make a story in about 150-200 words which describes how the elephant got its trunk or how a giraffe got its long neck.
How the Elephant Got its Trunk
It is a story of that time when elephants happened to be without trunk. They just had two tusks, that also were of no use to them. Once, there was an elephant who had good friendship with a jackal. They lived in a place where a big river flowed.
One day, the jackal came to know of a field of ripe melons across the river. His mouth watered. But he was worried what he could do of the fast flowing water. He was afraid of water. He approached his friend, the elephant. He told him (the elephant) of his plan of eating melons. He asked him to let him sit on his back. The elephant agreed. The jackal sat on the back of his friend. Soon they crossed the river and reached there. The jackal immediately grabbed plentiful of melons. Now it was his turn to help the animal by providing him the fruits, as the heavy animal found it difficult to sit and enjoy the melons. But on its opposite after filling his belly, he started howling, least caring for his friend. The howling attracted the farmer. He came running with a lathi. The clever jackal hid himself. But it was difficult for the elephant to run away with his heavy body. So, he had to bear the consequences of having a cunning friend, i.e. he was beaten black and blue by the farmer.
All that pierced the heart of elephant. He started worshipping Lord Shiva to help him, so that he might not remain hungry and could keep the unwanted elements away. Happy from his ‘Tapasya’, Lord Shiva blessed him with ‘trunk’ so that he could eat anything he wanted, might it be on ground or on trees. Moreover, now elephants can throw anyone away who tries to harm them.

A manager who had several clerks under him found that one of the clerks was in the habit of coming late to office. He wanted to teach him a lesson. One day the manager set the clocks back a little before the clerk came so that he felt that he had reached the office in time. The clerk arrived as usual late by about two hours, but was surprised when he looked at the clock.
Nevertheless he felt that the clocks were running slow and was thrilled that no one had discovered or noticed his late coming.
This continued for a few days. When the clerk reached his home late he realised that the clocks were deliberately adjusted to get full working hours of him.He finally learnt the lesson of punctuality the hard way. There is a very simple connection that the work begun on time can be completed at the right time and the delay at the beginning of the day is bound to set him behind and delay his work and he would have to plod through the day’s work without any time to relax.

The class was terribly quiet. The teacher was astonished. “Oh, so… this is the reason ! Where is he, the most notorious monkey of the town ……. ?” The seat was lying empty, the naughty seat though the most popular, the throne of the humour king of the class, Ashish. “Actually Miss ! He met with an accident last night and his legs had to be operated immediately. So the doctors asked his parents to arrange money for the operation. A huge amount would be incurred in the process. And the worst thing was that his father was out of city to seek a job. As soon as the news broke out, Ashish’s classmates and his class teacher rushed to hospital after the school hours. Surprising all the present ones, the class teacher deposited the amount for operation through cheque without wasting even a minute or waiting for his father’s arrival.
Immediately after that, doctors made preparations for the operation. For the complete four hours, the operation continued. As soon as the doctors came out of the operation theatre, they informed Ashish’s mother that despite the operation, he would not be able to walk properly for a few years. They further added that he would have to wear wooden shoes that would help the proper alignment of his legs.
Meanwhile, his father also returned. He had got a very good job in a multi-national company. He ordered special wooden shoes for his son from China. Ashish had to wear them all the time. But he hated them as they made him look ugly. His classmates helped him a lot during that period. As those shoes were very heavy and it was very difficult for him to walk comfortably, his friends used to carry his bag. Even on his absence from school, they used to come to his house to help him in homework.
After a month, his legs started bleeding again. Doctors advised him to take complete rest. His class teacher couldn’t resist herself. She started coming to his home and started teaching him. When Ashish’s parents tried to give her money back, she broke into tears. After being consoled, she told them that she had lost his son in an accident. So she can’t afford to see them losing their son.

Even then it didn’t make any effort to fly. Then hesitatingly, he picked up the bird in his hand. Then he noticed that there was an injury on one of its legs.
