Death Of Nightingale

Graloin - A place very close to nature. People of Graloin were always engaged in their own works, they never realized that beautiful nature around them. Though Graloin apparently was like heaven people least noticed it.There was a huge tree where many birds used to rest.

One day a Nightingale came from no where, to rest on that tree. Everyday it made soothing, pleasant sounds. People started noticing it. Every person slowly could see the beauty of Graloin.

Day by day with its growing beauty and changing seasons Graloin looked more like heaven. People thoroughly enjoyed Nightingale's singing. Now life in Graloin turned pleasant with arrival of Nightingale. There was not even single Gralonian who didn't admire that singing soul. Mornings, delightful with chirping of birds in chorus and Nightingale's splendour sound, water flowing in near by stream, rising sun as if it is hid behind the hills playing hide and seek.

One day a Magpie flew on that same huge tree where Nightingale lived. Nobody noticied it on first day. But second day Magpie was making sounds like Nightingale and other birds, it even mimiced people's voices. Magpie soon drew the attention of Gralonians. It used to repeat every sound it heard. Nightingale was no longer anyone's choice.Everyone praised Magpie but nobody listened to Nightingale.Eventually Nightingale died but people least cared .

After a few days Magpie flew away from Graloin.Then people realized that Nightingale existed no more that real sweet voice vanished. Nightingale was depressed as nobody listened to it and it died.

MORAL : 1. Feeling of being unwanted by everyone can kill a person.

2. We will know the importance of a person only in their absence.
