The poor stork started to cry. He had no option except for begging to the farmer to spare him life. “Please forgive me master! Please let me go to my old parents. My broken limb is hurting too much. They must be waiting for me,” he requested to the farmer. To this, the farmer did not pay any attention.

The stork continued, “I am not a crane, I am a stork! I am a sweet bird with excellent character and see how much I love and arrange food for my father and mother. Look at my feathers. They are so beautiful and not at least like those of cranes!”

The farmer who was very angry at his loses laughed aloud and said, “Maybe all you say, I only know this that I have caught you with these robbers, the cranes. You must die in their company.” No matter how hard the stork tried, his life came to an end because of his bad company. You may also like to read, Crane And Crab.
