Peacocks TaleTausi, the Peacock
was a kind and
gentle bird.

He lived in peace with
all the other birds.
But Tausi had a dream.

Instead of pecking at the ground,
he wanted to fly to faraway lands.

He wished he could see all
the beauty of nature for himself

But Tausi, the Peacock couldn’t
even travel far in search for food.
Some naughty birds mocked him.
They left him alone whenever
they went in search of food.

 

peacocks taleTausi the Peacock thought to himself, If I am a bird, then I should be able fly.
Why don’t I have wings like other birds?
