There were a mango and a banyan tree next to each other. The banyan tree was an abode to various species of animals and birds. Whereas, the mango tree had juicy fruits. People always came to eat the mangoes from the tree.

No one ever paid much attention to the old banyan tree. The mango tree said to the banyan tree, “No one ever looks at you. They all want me and my fruits but nothing from you. I’m the best.”

The next day king’s soldiers came and ruthlessly plucked all the mangoes. They left the broken branches and scanty leaves on the mango tree which had never looked so ugly.

To this, the banyan tree said, “Now look at you. Without your beauty and fruits, you are less likely to attract anyone. Your beauty ruined you. While I stand here safe and provide shade. I’m still useful.”

Moral – Never be too proud of your beauty.
