Last Updated: February 17, 2024

Welcome to a captivating narrative featuring the cows and a lion. This story delves into the powerful theme of unity. Join us as we follow the lion’s relentless pursuit to attack the united cows, finding success only when their unity is compromised. # Unity is Strength Short Story in English

Once upon a time, in a village, the villagers would send their cows together to the forest to graze. These cows were not just a herd; they were a close-knit community, always maintaining friendship and aiding each other in times of need. Each day, they journeyed into the forest to graze, returning home safely in the evening. However, a lion named Babbar, the king of the jungle, was planning to prey on these cows, one by one. Despite several attempts, he was always thwarted by the united cows. In his last encounter, he was left so severely injured that he remained bedridden for days. Seeing the unity of the cows, Babbar didn’t dare to approach them again. He figured it was tough to catch the big cows, so he attempted to hunt their calves instead, only to face defeat once more.

One day, a small argument among the cows led them to scatter and graze in different places. Nandani, the oldest and wisest cow, addressed the group, saying, “We mustn’t quarrel like this. If we do, our unity will crumble, and we’ll become vulnerable. Babbar will seize the chance to kill us, one by one.”

No one heeded Nandani’s advice. When Babbar heard the news, he rejoiced, seeing it as a prime opportunity to attack. Waiting in ambush behind the bushes, he swiftly pounced on Surbhi, a cow, from behind. Surbhi’s cries for help prompted Nandani to urge the other cows, saying, “Friends, in this dire moment, we must stand by Surbhi. If we don’t, the lion will devour her, and we’ll lose her forever. Let’s set aside our differences and unite. Unity holds the power to conquer even the mightiest foe. If Surbhi falls victim to Babbar today, tomorrow it could be any of us. If we don’t band together and help one another, Babbar will wipe out our species from this earth.

“Where there are four, there may be fights, but we should stand by each other in tough times. If you’re coming, great; if not, I’m going alone. I can’t leave her alone in this time. I’ll will help her, no matter what. If you have any sympathy for her, join me. And remember, if Babbar attacked her today, tomorrow it could be any of you. If you need help then, don’t expect anyone to step forward.”

Nandani’s words acted like medicine, calming everyone’s troubled minds. Everyone eagerly rushed to help. They bravely confronted the lion and successfully defeated him. In the end, everyone joined forces to drive away Babbar and save Surbhi’s life. As a result, they made a solemn pledge: “From today onwards, we will never fight amongst ourselves, and if conflicts arise, we will resolve them internally. We commit to always upholding unity and facing any adversary courageously.”
