Necessity is the Mother of Invention - Complete Story
Once upon a time, there lived a certain Crow in a certain jungle. He as a very ingenious and inventive mind. He was so valiant that he could face all the circumstances. Once, the summer was extremely hot. It was a roasting hot day of scorching summer. The burning blasts of blistering wind moved like fierce flames all along the meadows. Favourite spots and popular resorts looked to be dreary and desolate. The public haunts were bleak and barren. The thickly grown lush green leaves of trees and the delicate twigs of little saplings looked to be withered and wilted in the intensity of heat. These boiling hot conditions had dried up all the pools and ponds all-around. Even the streams and brooks were bone dry. Life came to standstill.

All activity was hamstrung. in such arid conditions, the animals and birds looked for shade and water. Like all other birds, the Crow was also affected and felt awfully thirsty. He was sitting all alone in a tree. He decided to quench his raging thirst at every cost. So he soared far and wide in quest of water with his beak wide open. But the water was very scarce. He found it nowhere.

As time went by, quench of thirst became an overwhelming obsession for him. Intolerable thirst had parched his throat utterly. He felt that his whole body was being roasted on a hot iron bar. But he did not lose heart and went on flying for hours in search of water. He knew that there was no choice for him but to do or die. Either he would quench his thirst or die a miserable death. So he decided to continue his struggle. After a long tedious scrabbling, he arrived at a garden. He had got tired of this futile labor. Fortunately, he caught sight of a pitcher of water lying in the garden. He felt indescribably happy.

He heaved a sigh of relief. He at once flew to it. He lands at the mouth of the pitcher to satiate his thirst. After a strenuous struggle, he succeeded in dropping the lid from the mouth of it. He lowered his head into the pitcher to drink water but to his ill-luck and grief, the pitcher contained so little water that his beak could not possibly get at it. He made hectic efforts to drink water but could not succeed. He was desperately disappointed. He exclaimed in distress,
"So near, yet so far!"
In spite of being a vortex of helplessness, he did not lose heart. Urgent and pressing need of water forced him to find out some way to satisfy his want because there was no alternative. A brilliant idea of raising the level of water had flashed through his mind. He said to himself,
"If I drop some heavy thing in the the jug, it will raise the level of the water."
But then there was a problem. How could he lift and carry a heavy object? Luck favored the brave crow. He saw a heap of gleaming white pebbles lying at some distance. Then abruptly he sprang up with joy. He was clever enough to make a proper use of those pebbles. He immediately decided to put his idea into practice. He at once flew to them, picked up a few pebbles and dropped them one by one into the pitcher. After sometime, he saw that the water in the pitcher had begun to ascend. His eyes gained sparkle and he continued his efforts even more enthusiastically. His continuous and constant labour brought him the desired fruit.

The water rose to the brim of the pitcher. Now it was within the reach of his beak. His joy knew no bounds. So, he drank water to his heart's content, quenched his thirst, thanked God for his blessing and flew away in a happy and jolly mode. The story teaches us a lesson that patience, courage and hope for survival make us successful. Everything can be achieved with untiring efforts, constant struggle and steadfastness. If once we fail we should not lose heart but try again. Our Constant Struggle and continuous effort will w pay uS in the long run.
