Hometown Hero

What makes a hero? This question can be answered in many ways. Courage in the face
of danger is one attribute. Unselfish leadership for the good of the community is another. Yet
there are many heroes who never face danger and cannot be called leaders.
These noble people go about their lives helping others for no reward other than knowing
it is the right thing to do. They do not take a day off and they put their own needs last.
Unfortunately, their heroic actions are mostly unnoticed. Maybe there is a hero like this living in
your house. What makes people do heroic things? The heroes that we study in school often
found themselves in history-making situations. Courage in wartime is an example. Other people
are natural leaders who inspire their followers to make important changes in society.
Perhaps at this time in your life, you have not met any heroes. If not, try to be one in your
own life each day. Put the needs of others first. Be kind and helpful to your friends and family. It
is not easy to be a hero, but it is a daily possibility.

Fox and the Rabbit

Long long ago there were two close friends named Jaggu and
Bunny.Jaggu was a fox living in a small forest adjacent to a village while
Bunny was a rabbit living in the same forest. These two friends were so
close to each other than daily they used to share a lot of things like toys,
food items, stories and they were also spending time in the forest by
playing with other forest animals.
Though Jaggu and Bunny were close friends, yet Jaggu was short tempered and was
loosing its temper. In addition to this, Jaggu had a very loose tongue and was always involved in
fights, arguments and quarrels with her friends. This is the reason why people in the village and
Jaggu's friends as well did not like Jaggu much because it was always like a fighter cock. But on
the other hand Jaggu's close friend Bunny was very soft spoken, giving respect to the elderly
people and was always excusing others for their mistakes. And because of such a sweet nature
of Bunny, it was very much liked by its friends and even by the people in the nearby village.

One day both the friends Jaggu and Bunny talked for a long time and at
the end both of these friends expressed their wish of getting laddus prepared by
their moms. These two friends liked laddus very much just like Chota Bheem who
is very fond of laddus. Jaggu and Bunny ran to their houses and expressed their
wish of eating laddus. Hearing this their moms said, "Oh dear, even I wish I could
prepare these wonderful sweets for you. But I need to buy lot of things like gram
flour, sugar, melted butter (ghee), cardamom powder, cashew nuts and other dry
fruits for preparing laddus. And we don't have enough money right now to buy all
these stuff."In this way moms of both the friends expressed their incapability of
preparing laddus. Now these two friends again had a meeting on how to get
laddus prepared by their moms and how to enjoy eating these delicious sweets.
After a long discussion, both the friends arrived to a conclusion and went home
As it was night time, they had a sound sleep. Jaggu and Bunny woke early in the
morning as per their plan. They were determined to get laddus prepared the next day by their
moms. So after finishing off their daily chores both the friends walked towards the village to get
all the stuff required for preparing laddus. On reaching the village, Jaggu went straight to a
shopkeeper and said arrogantly, "Hey, give me some gram flour, sugar, ghee and all the other
things required to prepared laddus. I like laddus very much and want to make laddus with it. On
hearing Jaggu's harsh words, the shopkeeper was annoyed, however he kept quite and gave
Jaggu the bill in which the cost of all the items are mentioned.
On seeing the bill and the amount mentioned in it, Jaggu turned
wild and started cursing the shopkeeper. Jaggu said, "You moturam what
are you going to lose if you give me little gram flour, sugar and other
things. You cheat!, why should I give you money for all these things when
so much of these items are thrown away waste in the backyard of your
shop. Can't you be kind enough to donate little bit of these things to the
poor?" Saying so, Jaggu started using bad language and started shouting
at the shopkeeper. All the time, Bunny was trying to calm down Jaggu by
pulling him back. But Jaggu did not listen to his friend but continued with
his shout at the shopkeeper.
As there is a limit for anyone's patience so also the shopkeeper lost his patience by all
this big shout of Jaggu. So he went straight into his house, got a big wooden rod only to beat
and hit hard Jaggu. Seeing the shopkeeper coming with a big wooden rod in his had both the
friends had to run fast out of the place to save their skin. After running for a while, they rested
for a while under the shade of tree and felt sad for the failure of their plan. However, Bunny did
not lose its heart and said to his friend, "Jaggu, please listen to me, you hide yourself behind me
and don't show your face. Let me go and try out for getting all the stuff for making laddus." As
Jaggu had a great faith on his friend Bunny he simply said yes and acted as per the instructions.
This time Bunny walked slowly to the shopkeeper and said, "Namaste
Ramuchacha. Saying so, Bunny bowed down and touched his feet. The
shopkeeper was very much impressed with this gesture of Bunny and blessed
him. The shopkeeper asked, "How are doing these days Bunny?" Replied Bunny,
"I am doing good Chacha (Uncle). How about you? I heard Chachi (Aunt) was
not well. How is she now?
The shopkeeper, "oh! how nice of you Bunny to remember this. Of course, she is
recovering now. Bunny, "How are your kids Monu and Champa?" How are their
studies going on?"Shopkeeper, "They are doing good Bunny. What's the purpose
of your visit?
Bunny, "Actually Chacha, I like laddus very much and you know we don't have
enough money either to laddus or to buy all the things for making laddus at home. So, I
thought of asking help from you Chahca. Anyway, if you cannot give, I won't mind
because I know you too have to look after your family's needs and you are taking all the
pains and working hard to earn money to look after your family. I don't mind Chacha if
you are not in a position to lend me."
On listening you such polite words of Bunny, the shopkeeper was so pleased that he
was readily willing to give all the things needed to make laddus and thus he said, "Oh, Bunny,
you are such a sweet little thing and when you wanted to eat laddus, I am sure to help you out.
You need not lend all the things for making laddus from me but I can give you all these for free
as a gift. You are a little one and I am sure you don't need much of these things. Moreover,
there is so much stuff which is being eaten up by the rats and cockroaches in the night time.
And many a times, I have to even throw away some of the stuff that gets spoiled. When there is
some wastage in my shop, I really don't mind donating you these stuff to you who are so sweet
and good."

Saying so, the shopkeeper turned out to his salesman and asked
him to get all the things required for making laddus and give all those
things to sweet little Bunny. Jaggu was listening to the whole
conservation from behind the scene and felt very happy as they both can
now have laddus to eat. At the same time, he even learnt the lesson that
if he want to get help from others he should not demand help from them
instead he should request them for a help and should be polite in his
words. Jaggu and Bummy carried all the stuff required for preparing
laddus to Jaggu's home. On seeing these things Jaggu's mother felt
happy and she prepared delicious laddus and gave it to both the friends.
From this incident on wards there was a lot of change in Jaggu's way of
talking and his behavior as well. He started talking to everyone with
respect and politeness. Now everyone slowly started liking Jaggu as well.
