It was a summer day and a crow became very thirsty. It went here and there in search of water but in vain. At last, it grew so thirsty that it thought that it would die. It, however, continued its search and found a jar. At once the crow flew down to obtain a drink of water. There was a little water at the bottom of the jar. It tried to drink but could not drink at all. It saw that there were some stones beside the jar. It thought for a while. A plan came into its head and it started to drop the stones into the jar one after another. At one time the water of the jar rose to the brim. The crow drank the water to its heart’s content and flew away. Thus the crow got relieved of his thirst.
