Unity is Strength Story
A Farmer and Three Sons
Once upon a time, there was an old farmer in a village and he had three sons. They used to quarrel with each other.
The old farmer was very ill and lay dying in his bed. He always worried about them and wanted to teach them a lesson.
One day he called his sons to come to him and bring some sticks. Then he tied all of the sticks in a bundle.
After that, he said his first son, “Can you break these sticks?” The first son tried to break the bundle. But he could not break the bundle.
Then it was the turn of the second son. He thought that he would be able to break the bundle easily. He tried his best for a few minutes to break the bundle of sticks. But it was not so easy to break the bundle so he failed.
Then, the third son also tried to break the bundle and he failed too.
Now the old farmer asked them to unite the bundle and told his sons to take sticks one by one and also asked to break them. Each of the sons took one stick and they broke them easily.
The old farmer then smiled at his sons and said to them, “My sons do you understand what I want to say? It is always easy to break the sticks one by one, but when they are bundled together, it is not so easy to break them.”
“So listen, my sons, I have become old and I may have to respond to heaven’s call any time. But I am worried about your relationship. You see from this test, if you live together nobody can harm you or if you are separate, anybody can harm you.”
Now all the three sons get the point of their father was trying to teach them. From that day they promised there father that they would never quarrel.
