One very hot afternoon, a crow was flying over a village in India. He was very thirsty. He had been flying in search of water. But he could not find water to drink. Now the crow became dizzy. But he did not give up. After a while, he saw a pot of water under a tree. He was very happy. He flew down immediately to the pot. When he reached the pot, he saw that the pot was deep. It had very little water at the bottom. He tried and tried to get it but couldn’t reach the bottom. He felt very sad. Again, he went in search of water, but couldn’t find it anywhere. He went to his friend Flamingo’s house but her pot was also empty. So sat on a branch of a tree, thirsty and tired. His friend Flamingo felt sorry for him and started thinking hard. He got an idea. He flew to the pond nearby, and pulled out a reed. Flamingo came to the crow and said, “We can use this reed as straw.” They went back to the pot under the tree and Flamingo put the reed in the pot. The crow sucked water through the reed and quenched his thirst. He was so thankful and glad to have a friend like Flamingo.
