Stories I would keep telling Dhyan #1

I plan to quickly search through this series of posts when I have to tell Dhyan a bedtime story.

I am not sure if there is a better story that teaches kids that they should not blindly believe or assume anything they hear or feel than ‘Seven blind mice’.

Story in my own words

“Once there lived seven blind mice.  They felt something strange & new around them. One mice felt the tail and thought it was a rope. One mice felt the ear and thought it was a fan. One mice felt the leg and thought it was a pillar. One mice felt the trunk and assumed it as a snake. One mice felt the tusk and assumed it as a spear. One mice walked to the tip of the head and thought it was a cliff. The last mice went front , back, felt all around & it took a little longer than others and know for a fact that it was an Elephant!

The wise mice also guided the others to see the truth. Isn’t he a friend we all desire to have? They were all happy & appreciative of his efforts to make them be aware of the truth.  ”

 

Moral: Take everything with a grain of salt. People may not always lie – they may just be oblivious to the truth. Seek the truth. Life is too short to live blind (figuratively)…
