the crow and the fox - Who's side are you on? Do you feel sorry for the crow who's only fault is being conceited? Should we be angry with the fox who have been resourceful and smart?
I was watching this fable of the crow and the fox in the Knowledge channel. Here's the gist: the crow is holding a piece of cheese in her beak. And then a fox, who is very hungry came by and found her. He tried jumping and climbing to reach the crow but to no result. Now, he devised a plan on how can he get the cheese. He praise the crow of her colorful plumage and everything. And he said that a beautiful crow should also have a beautiful voice. And the crow who is so conceited, began to sang. And at the end of the song, the fox has gone together with the cheese. The moral of the story is to try and try until you succeed. But my girlfriend commented it's not healthy for kids to watch it because it teaches the kids to cheat. The fox cheated the crow, right? So who's side are you on? do you feel sorry for the crow who's only fault is being conceited? Should we be angry with the fox who have been resourceful and smart?
