1. Excessive Desire
There was a man in a certain village. He had a beautiful Hen. He used to make a living from the money he got from selling chicken eggs. Hen eggs were the mainstay of his life.
One day the Hen put the gold egg. The master was very happy. He sold it and became rich and he looked after the Hen with great care. And he gave the Hen special snacks.
He wanted to become even more rich. A thought arose in the night; That is, ‘Rather than waiting a day for one golden egg, I will sell all the eggs in the hen’s stomach at once and become even more rich.
That’s why he got up in the morning, reaped (ripped) and saw the stomach of the Hen. But not a single egg was found in the stomach. The master was very sad. He lost the chicken which was the support of his life because of his excessive desire.
Moral of the Story: Too much desire spoil the life. We will lose our peace. Too much desire leads to misery. We will lose everything.

The crow became envious of the white color of the swan. And The crow sat down worried about its blackness. The crow thought that somehow I should become white like a swan and look beautiful. The crow thought that the swan was white because it was always swimming in water.
For that, the crow sank and floated in the water all day long. Once again the crow looked at its color, The color of the crow was black. However, the crow did not give up its efforts and continued to sink into the water.
