Look Before You Leap

Once upon a time, there was a hungry fox that was looking for something to eat. He was very hungry. No matter how hard he tried, the fox could not find food. Finally he went to the edge of the forest and searched there for food. Suddenly he caught sight of a big tree with a hole in it.

Inside the hole was a package. The hungry fox immediately thought that there might be food in it, and he became very happy. He jumped into the hole and when he opened the package, he saw there were a lot of food, bread, meat and fruit in it!

An old woodcutter had placed the food in the tree trunk while he cut down trees in the forest. He was going to eat it for his lunch.

The fox happily began to eat. After the fox had finished eating, he felt thirsty and decided to leave the trunk and drink some water from a nearby spring. However, no matter how hard he tried, he could not get out of the hole. Do you know why? Yes, the fox had eaten so much food that he became too big to fit through the hole.

The fox was very sad and upset. He told himself, “I wish that I had thought a little before jumping into the hole.”

The Theme : The theme of the story is that one should think before one leaps. While looking for food a hungry fox suddenly found a package inside the hole of a big tree.

But he could not get out of the hole as he became too big to fit through. The fox became very sad and uttered that he should have thought before jumping in.

(গল্পটির বিষয়বস্তু হচ্ছে ঝাঁপ দেওয়ার আগে ভেবে নেওয়া উচিত। খাদ্যের খোঁজ করার সময় এক ক্ষুধার্ত শেয়াল হঠাৎ এক বড় গাছের কোটরে একটা প্যাকেট দেখতে পেল। এ ভেবে যে, সে খাবার পেতে পারে সে সেই কোটরের মধ্যে ঝাঁপ দিল। সৌভাগ্যবশত সে সেই প্যাকেটে প্রচুর খাবার পেল যা ছিল আসলে এক কাঠুরের দুপুরের খাবার। শেয়াল লোভে প্রচুর খেলো আর তৃষ্ণার্ত হলো। তবে সে সেই কোটর থেকে বের হয়ে আসতে পারলো না কারণ সে আকারে অতিরিক্ত স্থূলকায় হয়ে উঠেছিল। শেয়ালটি বিমর্ষ হয়ে পড়লো আর বলল ঝাঁপ দেওয়ার আগে তার ভাবা উচিত ছিল।)
