The first cat said, "Give me the butter. It is I who saw it first."
The other cat said, "Keep away from it. It is I who picked it up."
A fight started between them and they were unable to find a solution. A cleaver wicked monkey was passing by who saw them fighting over the butter.
He thought “How foolish the cats must be. Let me take the advantage of their quarrel”. He came to the cats and said in a loud voice. "Don't fight. I will do justice. Let me share the butter among you both". Thus the cats gave the butter to the monkey thinking that he will do justice by distributing it equally between them.
The monkey split the butter into two parts. He shook his head and said, "Oh! One is bigger and the other is smaller". He ate a little bit of the bigger share to make it smaller. But the bigger share now had become smaller than the other. Thus he again ate from the other. He repeatedly ate part by part from both the shares to make them equal. At the end there was nothing left to share. Thus the poor cats were disappointed and realized their mistake of fighting over the butter.
Moral: When two quarrel, the third takes the advantage. Quarreling and fighting over any issue is destructive. One must not loose temper without a clear thought. One must be calm, gentle and humble to analyze and resolve the conflict. One must confess, seek and pray for justice. Quarrel leads to anger and anger leads to frustration, thus a situation is created where in the wisdom of justice for reasoning is obsolete and lost.
We have to resolve the issues peacefully. We have to put our best efforts with calmness, gentleness, love and compassion. We have to avoid hatred, enmity and criticism. Free and fare constructive communication is one of the basic rights of human beings. It’s one of the means to achieve freedom and liberty. Freedom and liberty are contagious where communication is the means to spread it across. In other words it’s impossible to achieve freedom and liberty without communication. A strong belief in freedom and liberty is a must. We have to communicate without any fear, to spread it effectively, thus to create an effective team work. We can avoid fear with strong faith in optimism. We have to dream of a secured peaceful future, thus put effective efforts to achieve the objective. We have to put our efforts without any frustration. We must never loose hope. Things will definitely change as the history proves that change it self is not constant. In other words history keeps repeating. Good things will definitely happen. The more effective the efforts, thus are the results. Lets make a humble request to all our loved ones so that we can achieve our objective. Good things are possible only with the blessings and wishes of the loved ones. It’s a collective effort. *[ Animation.]
Once a Landlord employed two Gardeners who had their duties on alternate days. They disagreed about how the garden should be. One would till the land, and the other would come and undo the other’s efforts. This went on for months. They kept undoing the other’s work and doing things their own way. At the end, the land was barren and infertile. All their efforts were in vain.
