    Ans‘Friends – a real treasure.

              This proverb means a friend who stands by us in our risk or difficult condition. Or we can say: if someone supports you, in such conditions that’s a real friend. In our life, we have so many friends. But all friends are not true. The following story proves it. 

         Once upon a time, two friends had great love for each other and promised to help each other, in the hour of need. They were passing through a deep forest, suddenly a bear came in front of them. One of them climbed a tree, leaving his friend alone.

        The other friend was unable to climb the tree, he laid on the ground and held his breath pretending to be dead. The bear came up to him and smelt him. Found him a dead, the bear left the place. Then the other friend came down and asked, “What did the bear say to you?” The friend replied that the bear warned me not to trust someone who leaves you in danger.’

          We have heard many stories of true friendships such as friendship of Krishna and Sudama, Duryodhana and Karna, etc. Such friends were the real treasure of life.        

           It’s important to know the difference between good and bad friends. A true friend sticks by you through all situations, while a selfish friend sticks by you only for his benefits who leaves you in your hardship. Trust is earned, and real friends earn it. so “The true friends are priceless.

The animal began to make noise. When the owner of the camel saw it, he understood the matter at once. He got a blanket and wrapped it around the neck of the camel and hit it hard with a wooden mallet. The melon broke and the camel swallowed it easily.

            A man who came late there saw this half process. He thought it was a treatment for a goiter. In the next village, he pretended to be a doctor who could cure goiters. The villagers brought an elderly woman to him for treatment. The man asked for a blanket and a mallet, just like he had seen before. He wrapped the blanket around the woman’s neck and hit her hard with the mallet, thinking it would help her. Unfortunately with that forceful blow, the woman passed away instantly. The villagers caught the quack doctor and handed over the police. Finally he was sent to prison for his little knowledge.

    [Hints: Explain the concept (introduction), give example (related story) , illustrated the idea and give moral.]

                   The proverb, “A book cannot be judged by its cover explains that a book with a very attractive cover may not have readable material inside. On the other hand, a book with a very dull cover may be very interesting. This is true of everything in life. or one can say what we see is not true.

              Let’s see a story which will clear our idea; one day a doctor entered hurriedly in the hospital in a for an urgent surgery of a boy as he received the call. But the father of the boy who was waiting for the doctor yelled: “Why did you so late? Don’t you have any responsibility?”

     The doctor smiled & said: “I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work.” The father was not ready to listen to him. The doctor smiled, changed his clothes and went into the operation theater. After some time, the doctor came out happily and told the father that your son is now out of danger, absolutely ran away from there.

     “How arrogant he is? He couldn’t wait a minute to speak with me.” said the father. The nurse answered, with the tears “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now after saving your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.” The father had no words to speak.

            So, it is only fair to say that all that what we see is not true.  A famous detective, Sherlock Holmes says in the novel “the sign of four,” “It is of the first importance, not to allow your judgment to be biased by personal qualities.

    [Hints : Explain the concept (introduction), give example (related story) , illustrated the idea and give moral.]

    The proverb ‘Manners maketh man’ mean that politeness and good manners are essential to humanity. Polite words like please and thank you shows courtesy. When you pass this courtesy to others, it becomes a circle. We have seen it in our lesson, “On saying please.” Let’s see the importance of the words please and thank you.

    Once there was a kind King who wanted his people to obey him willingly without being punished. He asked for suggestions and a young man came up with a clever idea. He gave the King two special words written on colorful papers. The first word was to be used before asking someone any work, and the second word after they did it.

    Everyone was curious about these “spells.” One day, a servant brought a letter to the King, who surprised everyone by politely saying, “Please, Ramsingh, come here.” Ramsingh was amazed as the King had never used “please” before. After taking the letter, the King thanked Ramsingh and let him go, leaving the servant smiling.

    The King started using these polite words with everyone, and amazingly, people started following his requests willingly. It worked like magic! The power of politeness made everyone happily obey the King, keeping peace in the kingdom.

             The teaching of manners is very necessary since the childhood. The childhood of most criminals was an unhappy and sad that affects their character in future.

All the three wicked men carried out their cruel plans. When the thief came with the poisoned food, the two men killed him. Then they ate the poisoned food and died.

Popatlal wanted his house finished in just two months, while Jethalal allowed the contractor to take his time. Because of Popatlal’s demand, his house was completed in three months but of quality. Though he was not satisfied, he had to pay the contractor.

     Jethalal’s house took three years to build, it was so beautiful.
