Short Story in Hindi – The crows and the serpent Posted by on Jul 23, 2014 in Hindi Language

Today, I will translate a very interesting story from Panchatantra (a very popular series of animal fables from ancient India). Hope you will practice your reading comprehension in Hindi, the story is as follow.

Once upon a time there lived a crow couple, who had built a nest on the top of a tree. But unfortunately the tree was inhabited by a serpent at its bottom. So the snake used to crawl up the tree and eat all the eggs that the lady crow used to lay. The crow couple were deeply grieved when they saw what happened after returning to their nest and when this happened time after time, then they decided to get rid of the snake.

So the crow then approached his friend the jackal told him everything. The jackal then told him to go and fetch a costly thing from the palace of the king and throw the thing in the burrow of the snake. The crow went to palace, and stole a necklace of the queen. After seeing the crow taking her necklace, she directed the giards to fetch her necklace from the crow. The guards of the palace ran after the crow to the forest. As the crow reached the tree, he dropped the necklace in the burrow of the snake beneath the tree.

The guard saw the crow throwing queen’s necklace into the burrow. The guards on reaching the tree, he recovered the necklace by killing the the snake who used to live in that burrow.

This way the crow family get rid of the snake.

एक बार की बात है एक पेड़ की चोटी पर एक घोंसला था जिस मेँ एक कौवे की एक जोड़ी रहती थी। लेकिन दुर्भाग्य से उस पेड़ के तल पर एक नाग भी रहता था। जब भी मादा कौवा कोई अन्डा देतीं और जैसे ही कौवे की जोड़ी पेड़ से दूर जाते तभी वो नाग रंगता हुआ पेड़ के ऊपर जाता और घोंसले में रखा कौवे का अंडा खा जाता। जब कौवे की जोड़ी वापस आए तो यह देख बहुत दुखी हुए और जब यह बार-बार हुआ तब कौवे की जोड़ी ने उस नाग से छुटकारा पाने का निर्णय कर लिया।

कौवे ने अपने मित्र् सियार से संपर्क किया और उसको सारी बात बताई।  सियार कौवे से बोला की तुम राजा के महल जाओ और वहां से एक महँगी वस्तु लाने और उसे नाग के बिल फेंकने के लिए कहा । कौवे राजा के महल गया और उसने रानी के कमरे से उसका हार चुरा लिया। रानी ने यह देख लिया और महल की रक्षक को कौवे से वो हार वापस लेन के लिए कहा।  रक्षक कौवे के पीछे-पीछे जंगल की ओर गया। कौआ जब पेड़ के पास पंहूचा तब उसने रानी का हार नाग के बिल में फेंक दिया। रक्षक ने यह देखा लिया और उस बिल से हार वापस लेने के लिए रक्षक ने बिल में रहने वाले नाग को मर दिया और बिल से हार वापस ले लिया।

इस तरह से कौवे की जोड़ी नाग से छुटकारा पाने में सफल रही।

The motto of the story is, by using brain you can beat even your adverse and powerful enemy.
