The Hare and the Tortoise

There lived a hare and a tortoise in a jungle. The hare ran very swiftly but the tortoise ran very slowly.

Being very proud of his pace and speed, the hare challenged the tortoise to a race. The tortoise accepted the challenge. They both went to a fox and requested him to act as a judge and the fox agreed.

Next day, as soon as the fox waved the flag, the two contestants started running. Covering a considerable distance, the hare stopped to rest, and while taking rest, fell asleep.

The tortoise ran non-stop and defeated the hare in the race.
