Olive Tree and the Fig Tree

Olive Tree and the Fig Tree is a short story with a very great moral lesson.

Sometimes it is not good to be the same all the time. We are all different for a reason according to the season.

Long time ago there lived a beautiful Olive tree. She was very beautiful in the forest and she knew everyone and so admired her. The very colorful birds came and sat on the branches of Olive tree and sang beautiful spring songs for their own enjoyment.

Oh, Fig see my beauty,
Aren't my leaves so relatively dense in consistency and delighting the senses? Olive asked.
Yes they are so beautiful and thick, the fig tree answered in a very polite manner.
Soon, it was autumn. Figs leaves started to change colors. Olives, leaves stayed green and thick.

Oh, poor Fig! Olive spoke with a very soft voice loudly to the bird
And the bird asked, Why are Figs leaves changing colors?
Olive said, his leaves are getting overly diluted; thin and insipid.
As it gets colder, Figs leaves will start to fall off And he will be naked and displeasing to the senses!
What about you, Olive? asked the little bird. And Olive told do not worry.
Olive said proudly. My leaves are same all around the year. They are always thick, green and beautiful.

Fig tree knew Olive was teasing him. But he ignored and stood proudly.
One day it began to snow. The snowflakes fell and landed on Olives leaves. They also fell to ground next to fig. Snow fell very harder and Olive started complained, Oh, my branches are so heavy. She cried!

Soon, beautiful leaves of Olive covered with the snow. Suddenly there was cracking sound and Olive’s branches broke and fell off, one after another.
What happened to Olive? The bird asked Fig.
She learned a lesson, answered a Fig.
