A story of a Seagull and a Frog

I came accross this story While I was reading “The Winner Stands Alone” by Paulo recently and it moved me so much that I couldn’t resist myself of posting it here. The more thought I give to it the more it is revealing. Have a great read and kindly share your implications.

So here goes The Seagull and the Frog

A Seagull was flying over a beach, when it saw a frog. It flew down and asked the frog:

“Where are your wings?”

Each animal speaks its own language, and so the frog din’t understand the question, but stared at the two strange, large things attached to the other creature’s body.

“It must’ve some illness”, thought the frog.

The seagull noticed the frog staring at its wings and thought :

“Poor thing. It must have been attacked by monsters that left it deaf and took away its wings.”

Feeling sorry for the frog, the seagull picked it up in its beak and took it for a long ride in skies. “Its probably home-sick”, the seagull thought while they were flying. Then it deposited the frog on the ground.

For some months afterwards, the frog was sunk in the gloom; it had known the heights and seen a vast and beautiful world. However, in time, it grew accustomed to being just a frog again and came to believe that the miracle that had occured in its life was nothing but a dream.
