Gandhi Quiz



Once Meera returned from school very sad. She went directly to her room, kept her bag on the table and lay down on the bed crying loudly. Her mother heard her crying and ran to find out.
"I have failed in two subjects," and saying that she started crying again. Her mother tried to make her quiet but Meera wouldn't listen to her.
In the evening when her father returned, he tried to explain to her. "Do your best in the next exam and you will get good marks," he told her.
The next two days Meera refused to go to school. In fact, she thought she would never go to school again. On the third day as she sat gazing out of the window, she saw a sparrow trying to build a nest on a tree. She saw it bring sticks and leaves in the nest and then fly away to get more. Every time the wind blew, the leaves and sticks would get blown away. But this did not stop the sparrow from continuing to build her nest and by evening, she was able to complete her nest.
As Meera sat watching the sparrow, her mother came and stood beside her.
"What are you looking at?" she asked her.
Meera told her all about the sparrow.
"If a sparrow can succeed in her task with courage, don't you think you can succeed if you study hard?"
The next morning, Meera dressed up to go to school. As she was leaving, she saw the sparrow sitting by its nest. Waving it goodbye, she left for school.

Moral of the story: Where there is a will, there is a way.
