Two sparrows lived in a forest and made a nest in the top of a bamboo tree. One day an elephant came looking for grass to eat in the shade of the tree.
When the sparrows saw the elephant, they were afraid he would pull down their tree, so they asked him to be kind: “King elephant, our children are still very young. They can’t fly yet. Please, don’t pull down the bamboo tree and our house.”
When the elephant heard that request, he boasted that he was very strong, and nobody should get in his way. “Why did you make a house where I look for food every day? Didn’t you know this forest belongs to me?” asked the elephant. “No one can get in my way.” Then the elephant used his trunk to pull the sparrow’s nest down. He stepped on it, and he walked away.

The sparrows were very unhappy. They asked, “How can we get revenge on this bad animal?”
The next day, the sparrows went to see their friend the crow, and told her what had happened. The crow said, “We must find a way to get rid of this bad animal. I’ll help you however I can.”
Then the sparrows went to see their friend the frog, to ask for his help. The frog said, “We are small, weak animals. If we want to fight an animal as big and strong as an elephant, we must have solidarity. We must think of a clever way to punish the elephant.”

Then the sparrows, crow and frog all went to see their friend the fly. They told her what had happened. The fly listened, and then said, “That is a very good plan, friends. If we combine all our power, we can certainly kill this elephant.”
The five friends went to see their friend the woodpecker, to ask for more help. The woodpecker said, “When my friends come to request help from me, I cannot turn them down. But we must promise to help each other whenever any of us has a problem.” They all made that promise, then went to look for the elephant.

The next day, while the elephant was asleep, the crow, woodpecker, and sparrows flew over and pecked both of his eyes. Then the fly flew over and laid its eggs in the wound. That made the elephant’s eyes swell up, and soon it became blind.
For many days, the blind elephant didn’t eat any grass or drink any water. Then the frog went to the top of a high cliff that was nearby, and called out. The elephant heard the frog’s call. The elephant thought that wherever there was a frog, there would be grass and water, so he walked over, then fell off the cliff and died.
Working together is the source of success.
