Short Story in Hindi – The Rabbit and the Turtle

Posted on 31. Aug, 2014 by in Hindi Language

Let me present you a fable from a very famous series of animal fables from ancient India which is called Panchatantra (पञ्चतन्त्र – Five Principles) which were composed in 3 BCE and since then have been translated into many languages around the world.

I have selected a very interesting story whose moral is: We should never underestimate a weak enemy. Hope you will enjoy the reading and learn some new vocabulary.

एक बार की बात है, एक खरगोश बहुत ढींगे मार रहा था की वो कितना तीव्र भाग सकता है और वो जंगल में रहने वाले कछुए का उपहास कर रहा था की वो कितना धीमा है। यह सुन कर कछुए ने खरगोश को दौड़ की चुनौती दे दी। | दोनों ने दौड़ करने का निर्णय लिया। जैसा की सबने सोचा था, खरगोश दौड़ प्रारंभ होते ही तीव्रता से कछुआ से आगे निकल गया। अभी दौड़ते-दौड़ते थोड़ा ही समय गुज़रा था कि खरगोश ने पीछे मुड़कर देखा कि कछुआ काफी पीछे रह गया है | उसने सोचा कि कछुए की चाल तो बहुत ही धीमी है इसलिए मैं थोड़ी देर विश्राम कर लेता हूँ | वह एक पेड़ की ठंडी छाँव में ऐसा सोया कि कछुआ, धीमी चाल होने के बावजूद भी, उससे आगे निकल कर अपने गन्तव्य तक पहुँच कर दौड़ जीत गया | जब खरगोश नींद से उठा तो उस से कछुआ दिखाई नहीं दिया। खरगोश दौड़ जितने के लिए गन्तव्य की ओर दौड़ा और आश्चर्य में कछुए को वहां उसकी प्रतीक्षा करता पाया ।

One day a rabbit was boasting about how fast he could run. He was laughing at the turtle for being so slow. After hearing this the turtle challenged the rabbit for a race. They decided to race to see who is faster. As the race began, the rabbit raced way ahead of the turtle, just like everyone thought. The rabbit turned around to see if he can find the turtle and found him way behind him. The rabbit decided to stop and take a short nap as the turtle was very slow. As the rabbit slept under a tree, the turtle races to the destination with his slow pace. Even with his slow pace, the turtle run to the destination as the rabbit slept and won the race. He could not see the turtle anywhere! He went at full-speed to the finish line but found the turtle there waiting for him.

Dahi Handi

Posted on 30. Aug, 2014 by in Hindi Language

In many festivals in India, the festival of Janmashtami (also called Krishna Janmashtami) is an important festival which is celebrated all over India. Janmashtami (जन्माष्टमी) is celebrated on the occasion of birth of lord Krishna in the month of August. Especially in the state of Maharashtra, the festival is celebrated with much passion by reenacting the childhood of Lord Krishna. Dahi Handi (दही dahi: curd, हांड़ी handi: earthen pot) is one such reenact which is based on the legend of the child-god Krishna stealing butter (मक्खन – Makkhan) from the pot. Processions of Dahi Handi involves making a human pyramid and breaking an earthen pot filled with curd which is placed at a height (ऊंचाई – Unchaai).

According to the legends, the child-god Krishna and his friends used to form human pyramids so as to break pots hung from the ceilings of neighborhood houses in Vrindavan (a city in the state of Uttar Pradesh in North India) to steal curd and butter. Lord Krishna used to steal butter and curd and distribute it among his friends in defiance to evil King Kaunsa’s rule (his maternal uncle) as all milk products produced in the city must be given to King leaving children deprived of milk product. In reenact in the processions of Dahi Handi, there is a team of participants depicting Krishna and his friends. Every such participant of a team is called Govinda (alias of Krishna) or Govinda Pathak.
