There was a boy named Akash who lived in a village. He was upset because his village faced a drought. Everything was drying up, the cattle were starving, and the crops were dying.
He went to the villagers and told them, “Remember, our grandparents told us stories that there is an underground river flowing through our village. We should all start digging to see.”
The next morning, everyone started digging with hopes to find water. But after several hours of struggle, everyone was exhausted and gave up hope.
But Akash didn’t stop and kept digging until he saw some water. He screamed in happiness, called everyone, and said, “Don’t give up just yet.”
Other villagers continued digging with him and dug a well to store water. Everyone was happy as they never had to face another drought.
Moral – Hard work pays off in time.
