The following text is for questions no. 16-19

Once upon a time, there lived a man called Bhim. He made his living by trapping quails.

He used to hide among the bushes and imitate the sound of a quail. When the birds came closer, he threw his net over them and caught them. He then sold them in market.

Bhim caught about ten to twenty quails daily. The king of the quails was worried. Many of his subjects were being captured. He hit upon a plan. He gathered all the quails around him one day.

“You must learn to stand together.” He said. “Unity is strength. As soon as that man throws his net over you, using all your strength, you must fly off with the net. Descent to the ground near the banyan tree. There our friends will set you free.”

“What a good idea!” said the quails.

The next day, Bhim cast his net over some quails. At once they flew away with the net. He did not know where they had flown. He searched for the net but could not find it.

Bhim then bought a new net. Again the same thing happened. The birds flew away with the net. Bhim and his wife were unhappy. “How can we make our living now?” said the wife.

“Don’t you worry,” said Bhim. “The birds have learned to work together. As soon as the net is thrown over them, they fly off with it. I don’t think their unity will last long. They won’t like in peace any longer. They will quarrel with one another soon, and I will catch plenty of them.”

The next day Bhim found the quails quarrelling. One of them said, “We are able to escape because I am strong enough to lift the net.” Another bird said, “I am the strongest. I can’t lift the net myself.” Soon all the quails joined in the quarrel.

Just then Bhim threw his net over the group of birds. “Now let us see what you can do!” cried one. “Can you lift the net without my help?” said another. “Try and lift it.” They went on quarrelling and did not try to fly away together. Soon Bhim drew in his net and took the birds home.

“Look!” he said, showing the quails to his wife. “Didn’t I tell you that they wouldn’t stand together much longer? The quails are a quarrelsome tribe. I will catch plenty of them every day.”
