The Ungrateful Travellers | Aesop’s Fables
Ungrateful Travellers | Podcast
Once upon a time, two men were travelling together and had covered a long distance. They were tired and decided to rest for a while before continuing their journey. They searched for a place to rest and came across a tree with big branches that provided plenty of shade. Both the travellers lay down under the tree to rest.
One of the travellers noticed that the tree didn’t have any fruit or flowers while they were resting. He told the other traveller that the tree was boring and useless because it didn’t do anything. The other traveller agreed with him.
They were unaware that the tree could hear their conversation and was extremely upset by their lack of gratitude. The tree spoke up and retorted, “You both are so ungrateful! “Here I am, providing shade to people like you, and you dare to insult me by calling me useless.”
Both travellers were ashamed of their behavior and realized the error of their ways. They apologized to the tree and acknowledged its importance in providing shade and comfort to tired travellers like themselves.
The moral of the story is that we should never underestimate the value of something or someone based solely on their outward appearance or what we think they can provide. Even the most plain-looking or unassuming things may have hidden value and can serve a useful purpose. It is important to be grateful for what we have and appreciate the little things that make our lives better, even if they may seem insignificant at first glance.
