Interesting Short Story with Moral : Monkeys and the Fire Fly

Once upon a time there lived a group of monkeys in a deep forest. It was winter season. One night it was a cold and silent night. The weather was cold. Monkeys were sitting on a big tree. They were holding its branches tightly with their hand. One of the monkeys said, “If we could find some fire then it will help us to keep warm”. They were searching of fire.

All of a sudden they found a group of fireflies came out of a small hole. One of the young monkeys thought it was fire. He told all their friends lets catch the fire. Saying this he caught a firefly. He put it under a dry leafs, sticks and started blowing at it. Other monkeys also joined with him and started blowing with their mouth.

A sparrow was flying to its nest where the monkeys were sitting on the same tree. She noticed what they were doing. The sparrow laughed and said, “You all are stupid. That is a firefly, not the real fire. If you catch the fire it will burn your hand. I think all of you should take shelter in a cave because you feel cold and inside the cave you may feel warm”. The monkeys did not listen to the sparrow. They continued to blow at the firefly.

After some time the monkeys became very tired. Now they realized what the sparrow had said was correct.

They set free the firefly and thanks to the sparrow. After they all moved to a nearby cave.
