Early Bird Catches the Worm
Many times we hear a proverb, moral or a fact but we do not give any attention towards it. But some incidents like fighting, which is very common, reminds us of the proverb "TIT FOR TAT", about which we should not even think, but see we practice it in our daily life. But some sensible proverbs like MAKE HAY WHILE SUN SHINE, EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM etc. that we should practise daily are ignored by us.
An incident which occured with me reminds me of all these thoughts and a proverb EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM.
I was 11 years old and I was in sixth stanandard. From the first day of the school I had determined that this year I will score good marks and top in the class. For two or three days I did regular studies but after some days I became careless and became more interested in television programme. I thought that studying one day before will be enough for me. As a result I got less marks in class tests. Then I thought that if I score good marks in exam, my result will improve but the exam was just after one week and our syllabus is so tough. I was not able to prepare myself well for exam. My hope was of getting 90% or above but I got only 72%. You see! this was the result of not doing regular studies. Now in seventh standard I am not going to repeat this mistake and please you too never make such a mistake. This incident reminds me of the proverb:
EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM
You may wonder why I found this proverb suitable. It is because I thought that just like the bird who starts searching for its food soon catches it soon, in the same way if I would have started studying earlier it was possible for me to top in class.
Well, I am in the same thinking as am a student of VI std. and wasted precious time always thinking that I will start from tomorrow, but I can't. I will definitely make it a point to start my studies uptodate to score more.
