THE JACKAL AND THE ROOSTER
Class-VII English [NEW BOOK 2018] (Lesson 2)

    TEXT

    There was a very big and handsome rooster. He looked like a king with its beautiful red crown. He also felt like a king. He got up very early in the morning, sat on a high place and sang non-stop - cock-koo-doodle doo, cock-koo-doodle doo.............. .. He knew that his song was much better than the songs of the other roosters in his locality. But he wanted to make his song still better, louder and clearer. But how to do this was his problem. It was a problem till a jackal suggested a way out.

    The jackal saw the rooster singing everyday early in the morning. But it sang keeping his eyes open. If he would try to catch the rooster, the rooster would fly away to the tree. This was what happened the other day when he tried to catch a rooster. So he came to the rooster and said, "Oh great, handsome, king-like rooster! Your song will be really nice if you sing closing your eyes."
