A fable is a very short story which promises to illustrate or teach us a lesson which is also called a moral. Usually if not always, fables are stories having animal characters that talk like humans.
On one fine summer's day in a field a Grasshopper was hopping about in a musical mood. An ant passed by bearing along with great toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest.
The Ant and the Grasshopper
"I’m storing up food for winter"." Why don’t you do the same?"
But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil.
The grasshopper invited the ant to sit for a chat with him. But the ant refused saying that
"Pooh! Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper; we have got enough food at present."
Finally, when winter came, the Grasshopper found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the ants distributing corn and grain from their storage.Then the Grasshopper understood that…It is best to prepare for the days of necessity.
