The Hare And The Tortoise Story

The Hare And The Tortoise Story

One day a hare met a tortoise

She made fun of slow pace of the tortoise and said,

“You have as many legs as I have but I am sure, you cannot run as fast as I can

Most probably you can't run at all”.

The tortoise became very angry

He answered quietly, “You can run quite fast, no doubt but I think, you can talk even faster than you can run

However, I agree to run a five-mile race with you”.

At this the hare felt very delighted

So she said, ‘Come along, let's fix a date for the race'.

They fixed a date and the racing day had come.

The tortoise and the hare came to the starting point

The race began and the hare began to run very fast.

The hare jumped and jumped and ran a mile in a few minutes.

Soon she found the tortoise far behind her

Then she stopped and thought, I can have a good sleep before the tortoise comes up

So saying, the hare went to sleep in a bush.

In the meantime the tortoise walked on and on

He did not stop anywhere.

When he came to bush and saw the lazy hare lying fast asleep

He smiled and quietly passed by her without stopping.

After sometime the hare woke up

She saw that it was already evening

She immediately got on her feet

She began to run very fast.

But alas! The tortoise was already crossing the winning post.

The hare felt much ashamed

She now said to herself, It is true that slow and steady wins the race. 

Moral of the Story: Slow and steady wins the race.
