BRAINS OR BRAWN ?

               BRAINS OR BRAWN?
              *********************
 It would be admitted on every hand that brain is,as sure as eggs in eggs, more important and necessary than physical power.The following fable corroborates it.
 Once there resided a brawny crow on a high branch of a larch.It was the time of sweltering summer.The crow was very thirsty.He searched high and low for a draught of water but all his efforts proved a wild goose chase as all the ponds and rivers were practically dried up.He desperately made another effort. Luckily,he chanced to see an earthen pitcher in a garden.He was cock-a-hoop to see the pitcher.But all his happiness vanished into thin air in the twinkling of an eye when he dived down to the pitcher and saw that it contained very little water at its bottom and his beak could not reach the surface of the water.
 The physical power of the crow could not do the needful.The hapless creature began to chew the cud as to how to get at the water.His brain power came to his rescue by giving him an idea.There were lying some pebbles near the pitcher.He picked them one after another and dropped them into the pitcher.Though it was a ticklish task,yet he went on dropping the pebbles.The water began to rise up.It gradually rose to the brim of the pitcher.The fatigued crow quaffed the water to his heart's content and flew off happily,cawing melodiously.

MORAL OF THE STORY------BRAIN POWER IS BETTER THAN PHYSICAL POWER!!
