When she found apond, she said, “Dear Pond, One of my chicks is suffering from hiccups. Please give me some water.” To this, the pond replied, “Sister, bring a cup! Without a cup, how will you take the water? There will be an old lady sitting near the tree. Ask her for a cup!”
The poor hen told the old lady her story and asked for help. She said, “Bring the banana leaf for me! From that, I will make a cup.” “Before leaving could you please find my needle?” asked the old lady. The hen immediately found the needle and gave it to her. Then, she set out to find the banana leaf.

I am suffering because of that!” said the banana plant. Hearing this, the hen ran to the gardener. You may also like to read, The Hawk And The Hen.
