Once upon a time, there was an old farmer. He lived in a small village with his wife and three sons. The three sons always quarreled with one another. This is why the farmer was very anxious about their future. One day he hit upon a plan to teach them a good lesson. The fanner called all of them to his bedroom and accordingly, they appeared before him. Then the farmer asked them to bring a bundle of sticks. They complied with his orders. The farmer then asked them to break the bundle of sticks. Everybody tried hard but no result. Then the farmer asked them to untie the bundle and gave each of them a stick to break. This time they easily broke the stick. Then the farmer made a comment that united we stand and divided we fall. After that, they quarreled no more.
