A HARE AND A TORTOISE/SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE-STORY

A Hare and a Tortoise/Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Once there lived a hare and a tortoise. As the hare is a speedy animal, he was proud of his motion. He used to tease the tortoise for its slow pace. He would also invite the tortoise to run a race. However, one day the tortoise accepted the invitation and proposed to him fixing up a date for the competition. At this the hare got much amused. However a date was fixed. A fox with other animals came to see the race.
On a nice morning the race began. The hare began to run very fast. He crossed a mile jumping in a few minutes. He looked back and noticed that the tortoise was far behind him. Then he stopped and thought the tortoise would not be able to run past him. Thinking this, he wanted to have a little rest and soon fell asleep in a bush.
But the tortoise continued running by his slow pace. He did not stop anywhere. When he was passing the bush he saw that the lazy hare was lying fast asleep.
He quietly passed by the hare. Many hours passed by. The hare woke up and began to run very fast. But alas! By this time the tortoise was already crossing the winning post. The tortoise laughed the ending laugh. The hare felt ashamed for his tall talk. He said to himself, “Slow and steady really wins the race”.
