2. Never Complain

This story is simply one of the best ones. It revolves around the hottest time of the year. The sun was scorching hot. Two passengers were travelling down a sandy road with no trees on either side. They came upon a tree with large leaves and branches stretched out like an umbrella as they looked for some shade from the blazing heat.

never complain story

They sat in the pleasant, dense shade of the tree, their stuff on the ground. “What a worthless tree that is!” one traveller tells the other after taking a break. It doesn’t produce any fruit in the least.”

The tree felt squeezed and screamed, “You ungrateful soul!” after hearing this. On the one hand, you’re seeking refuge from the sun’s scorching heat in my cool shade, and on the other, you’re dismissing me as worthless. Get up and leave the area right away, or you’ll get burnt again.”

Moral of the story:

Stop complaining and always be grateful for what you have in your hands. Some others don’t even have what you have, so start appreciating what you have.

 After hearing about the giant, Agrpanthaka assured the saint that he will help him and capture the king. But the giant was too big and powerful. Thus the king decided to seek the help of his monkey friend Batuknath. he explained everything to Batuknath. He smiled and asked the king to take him as well when he’ll go to capture the giant.

After a long journey of weeks, they finally arrived at the lair where that giant was living. Inside the lair, the big giant was sleeping. Batuknath asked the king to hide somewhere and the king did so. Then Batuknath started playing the trumpets they brought on their way.

Since trumpets were loud the giant woke up from sleep. He asked angrily “ who is it ?”, Batuknath again blew the trumpet and relied “ Ha Ha Ha Ha I am the king of Giants, I have come here to teach you a lesson. 

You are a thief…what a shame !, Batuk further said “I am waiting for you outside your lair…..since I am so big I cannot enter your lair. But when you’ll come outside I will capture you.

Hahahahahahah”. After hearing this the giant got sacred a bit and decided not to go outside. The giant asked the Batuk that if he is the giant king himself then show him some proof. Batuknath already knew it would happen, thus he threw spear spiked into the lair and said “ See….these are my teeth. Hahahahaha”. After seeing the spikes the giant started to panic. 

Then Batuknath lighted some crackers, after hearing loud bangs of crackers the giant asked from inside “w..what is happening ?”. Batuknath answered growling “ I was just clapping because I am so happy that I will capture you today…haahahahahahahaha”. After hearing this the giant got too scared that he started crying.

He pled Batuknath while crying “buhuhuuuuu….please forgive me O King. I will stop stealing things from people”. Now Batuknath got his chance and said “baahahahahaha…alright poor giant. I can forgive you but you have to come outside. And keep your eyes close. I am very-very scary, If you’ll see me you” ll lose consciousness.
