     The Old Man and his Sons


 

There was an Old man who had seven sons who always fought to one another. On the point of death of the old man ,he summoned his sons around him to give them some parting advice.

He ordered his servants to bring a bundle of sticks, and said to his eldest son: "Break it." The son strained and strained, but with all his efforts was unable to break the Bundle.

 The other sons also tried, but none of them was successful. "Untie the bundle," said the father, "and each of you take a stick."

When they had done so, he called out to them: "Now, break," and each stick was easily broken. "You see my meaning," said their father.

Moral: Unity is strength.
