एक आम का बाग़ था। उस में बहुत सारे आम के पेड़ लगे थे । अब आम के पेड़ ही होंगे चीकू के तो नहीं होंगे।पर उस आम के बाग में गलती से एक चीकू का पेड़ भी लग गया था । वह दिन भर अकेला कोने में खड़ा रहता था, उसका कोई दोस्त नहीं था । सब आम एक दूसरे से बात करते, उस से कोई बात नहीं करता । इस से उसे बहुत बुरा लगता । वो सोचता, ये आम के पेड़ अपने आप को इतना ख़ास क्यूँ समझते हैं, हैं तो आम के पेड़ ही । हम सब पेड़ हैं तो हम सब को मिल जुल कर रहना चाहिए ।
चीकू ने अपने बग़ल में खड़े आम के पेड़से पूछा, “ भैया, तुम लोग मुझ से बात क्यूँ नहीं करते ? मैं भी तो फल का पेड़ हूँ और मेरे फल भी बहुत मीठे हैं ।
आम के पेड़ ने अकड़ कर कहा, “ आम तो फलों का राजा होता है, चीकू से उसकी क्या बराबरी ?
चीकू ने कहा, “ अरे मेरे फल भी तो मीठे होते हैं और सेहत के लिए अच्छे, तो फिर ये भेद भाव क्यों ? “
आम के पेड़ ने कहा, “ अरे क्या बात करते हो ? आम के फल का रंग रूप देखो । हम पीले और लाल और कितने सुंदर हैं और हमारा गूदा भी कितना रसीला और मीठा होता है । तुम अपना रंग देखो , भूरे और छोटे से हो , बिलकुल बेकार लगते हो । हमारी और तुम्हारी दोस्ती नहीं हो सकती । जाओ, भाग जाओ । “
अब पेड़ तो भाग सकते नहीं तो चीकू का पेड़ अपना सा मुँह ले कर वहीं खड़ा रहा ।
एक दिन आम के बाग में कुछ लोग पिकनिक मनाने आए। उन्होंने बहुत सारे आम खाए । थोड़ी देर बाद उनका चाय पीने का मन हुआ तो उन्होंने आम की लकड़ी इकट्ठी की और उस में आग लगा कर उस पर चाय बनायी । चाय पी कर वह लोग वहाँ से चले गए पर उन्होंने आग पूरी तरह से नहीं बुझायी । बस फिर क्या था । एक हवा का झोंका आया और आग की एक चिंगारी को उड़ा कर ले गया ! वह चिंगारी कुछ सूखे घास के पत्तों पर पड़ी और उस में आग लग गयी । आग अब बढ़ने लगी और आम के पेड़ों को घेरने लगी । सभी आम के पेड़ चिल्लाने लगे, “ बचाओ बचाओ !”
उनकी पुकार सुन कर चीकू का पेड़ घबरा गया । उसकी समझ में नहीं आ रहा था कि वह क्या करे । उसने सोचा, भले ही आम के पेड़ मुझसे दोस्ती नहीं करते पर वो भी तो मेरी तरह पेड़ हैं , उन्हें बचाना मेरा फ़र्ज़ है । पर वो करे तो क्या करे ? वह भी तो पेड़ था, दौड़ तो सकता नहीं । फिर वह आम के पेड़ों को कैसे बचाए ? चीकू के पेड़ ने आव देखा न ताव, अपने सारे चीकू के फलों को नीचे गिराने लगा । अभी चीकू के फल पके नहीं थे इस लिए वह पत्थर की तरह कड़े थे । तड़ तड़ तड़ ! वह ज़मीन पर गिरने लगे ।
उनके गिरने से इतना शोर हुआ कि सारे पक्षी काँ का का और चीं चीं चीं कर के आकाश में उड़े । उन चिड़ियों की आवाज़ सुन कर पास खड़े हुए जानवर भी शोर मचाने लगे । कुत्ते भोंकने लगे, भौ, भौ, भौ ; बिल्लियाँ भी म्याऊँ म्याऊँ करने लगीं ; गधे रेंकने लगे, ढेंचू ढेंचू ढेंचू ; गायें रंभाने लगीं, माँआऽऽऽ।
उनकी आवाज़ें सुन कर कुछ आदमी लोगों की नज़र बाग़ की तरफ़ गयी । उन्होंने देखा बाग़ से धुआँ उठ रहा था । बाग़ से उठता धुआँ आसमान में छा रहा था । बस फिर क्या था । वो लोग भी चिल्लाने लगे ।इतना शोर सुन कर बाग़बान यानी बगीचे का रखवाला उठ गया । वह दौड़ा दौड़ा आया । अपने साथ वो और लोगों को भी लाया । सब ने मिल कर आग बुझा दी ।
जब सब लोग चले गए तो थोड़ी देर तक सब आम के पेड़ चुप रहे । फिर एक आम का पेड़ चीकू के पेड़ से बोला, “चीकू भैया, तुमने तो आज कमाल कर दिया । हमारी जान बचाने का शुक्रिया । तुम देखने में छोटे और भूरे हो पर तुम हो बड़े होशियार । हमसे दोस्ती करोगे ?” चीकू बहुत खुश हुआ । उसने तुरंत हाँ कर दिया ।
अब आम के पेड़ और चीकू का पेड़ ख़ुशी ख़ुशी बाग़ में रहने लगे । सब आम के पेड़ मज़ाक़ करते और चीकू के पेड़ से कहते, “ हम तो आम ही है , तुम तो हो बड़े ख़ास !”

Here is the ENGLISH AVATAR of the story along with the link to the story on my website
THE MANGO ORCHARD AND THE CHIKOO TREE
Once upon a time there was a huge mango orchard with many, many trees in it. There were many kinds of mangoes in it; mangoes of many shapes, sizes and color but they were all very beautiful. And juicy. In the same orchard it so happened there was also a little chickoo tree standing in one corner. Have you seen a chickoo fruit ? It’s round and small and brown and not very pretty. When it is young it’s fruits are very hard. Yes, it’s not a very good looking fruit even though it is very sweet when it is ripe.
Anyway, let’s go on with the story. The poor chickoo tree was very lonely. None of the mango trees would talk to him. The mango trees were friends with each other but whenever the chickoo tree tried to talk to them they would tell him to go away. They would laugh and say, ” Look at you ! So small and round and brown. And look at us. We are golden in color and so shapely. You don’t fit in our crowd. Don’t you try to come near us. Just run away. ” Well, you know very well trees can’t run so the chickoo tree would just stand in his corner with a long face and feel very sorry for himself. How he wished he had a few friends. He was very, very lonely.
One day, a party of humans came in to the orchard for a picnic. They sat down under the shade of the mango trees and eat and drank. Then, they decided to have some tea. So, they collected some dry sticks, added some dry grass and lit a fire. They made tea and everyone, except the children who had some hot milky cocoa, had tea. Then, they put out the fire and went away. But, the fire was not quite out even though they had stamped on it. Just a little spark was hidden under the twigs and that was enough to light the fire again. Very soon, the fire started spreading . It started burning the grass and the dry leaves on the ground. Very soon it would reach the mango trees which , when dry, can burn down very fast.
The mango trees saw the fire and were frightened. They didn’t know what to do. If even one mango tree caught fire the whole orchard would burn down. The mango trees started shouting, ” Help ! help! Save us ! ” but there was no one around to hear them. The watchman of the orchard had gone home for lunch. By the time he would come back the orchard would be on fire. What a disaster. And anyway who can hear the sound of trees calling for help except other trees. No one can understand them.
And so it happened the little chickoo heard the mango trees shouting for help. He saw the fire too and understood the great danger . He thought to himself, “It’s true that the mango trees do not want to be my friends. They are also very rude to me. But, we are all trees. So, I must do something to save them.” Can you guess what the chickoo tree did to save the mango trees? You know trees can’t run or shout for help because they are rooted to the ground and no one can understand them. Then, how was the chickoo tree going to save the mango trees ?
Did I not tell you that the chickoos’ fruit are very hard when they are young.
So what the chickoo did was to drop all his fruits to the ground at one go. Their was a shower of chickoo fruits hitting the ground. When the fruits hit the ground they made such a racket ! I cannot even describe the sound of hundreds of chickoo fruits hitting the ground at one time, just like a hail storm. It was so sudden and noisy that all the birds flew up in shock and started to squawk ! The crows went, ‘caw, caw’, the birds went, ‘cheep, cheep’ and the squirrels started chattering. Even the few goats who were roaming around started bleating . Hearing them , the cows started lowing, “moo, moo” the stray dogs started to bark and the cats started mewing and hissing . It was a very noisy event.
A few passerbys heard the sound of the animals and looked towards the orchard. They saw the plume of smoke above the trees and knew, at once, that the orchard was in great danger. They started shouting. Some of them ran to get the watchman. Some ran to get buckets of water. And some called the fire station. Everyone got together and put out the fire. And then went away.
After the people left there was a long silence in the orchard. All the mango trees were thinking about the sacrifice the chickoo tree had made to save the mango trees by throwing all his fruits to the ground. He had nothing left.
The mango trees waved their branches and saluted the chickoo tree. Then they said , ” You are very special chickoo tree , we are just ordinary in front of you. Will you be our friend ? ” The chickoo tree was very happy to hear this. He said, ” I will be honored to be your friend.” Now, the chickoo tree was never lonely. He had many, many friends who loved and honored him for his good qualities and did not care how he looked.
Yes, it is what you do for others that is important, not how you look.

Very nice story by Anju Rajput ! A good lesson for young folks here, branded goods and trying to impress others can only take away your soul !
Stop underestimate yourself because whenever you compare yourself with someone we have more trouble.
Comparison burns us from inside. And we started compare the results of others from our own today.and it’s the reason we start seeing the results of others and do not see hard work behind the success.You are the most unique no one in the whole universe like you. When you compare yourself to someone you do not compare you waste your precious time.

Some time later after the clever cuckoo had flown off the four eggs which Mother crow was hatching started to crack. A little later four baby crows were shouting, “Caw, caw, caw,” as they were hungry and wanted Mother Crow to get them food. Mother Crow tried to explain to them that, ‘Children, please be patient. There is just a tiny egg left to hatch. As soon as it hatches I will get something to eat and drink for all five of you.” Just as she was telling this the little egg hatched and a little bird hopped out of it and sat on the edge of the nest and said, ‘Coo.” Mother crow and her four baby crows’ beaks fell open in surprise. Where ever did this ‘Coo’ sound come from in between the sound of the ‘caw, caw.’ Now, how were they to know that this little bird was not Mother crow’s child but the clever cuckoo’s baby.
Time flew by and the four crows and little cuckoo bird grew up. Mother crow rushed around trying to get them in a good school.
While she was hunting for a good school she met a music teacher, a Mr. Tar- Tar, who was frog who spent his free time teaching the animals of the jungle how to sing. But till now he had not got any work because the children were scared of his loud voice. But Mother Crow loved his loud voice and she appointed Mr. Tar- Tar to teach her children how to sing.
And then, what do you think happened. Every morning Mr. Tar- Tar would come hopping to Mother Crow’s nest and made her five children practice their sings under the shade of the tree.
he animals of the jungle were really fed up with Mr. Tar-Tar’s music classes. So Peter Parrot, Mr. Peek-a- boo peacock, Banana-Drama monkey, Flow-Jo deer, Mr. Tittle -Turtle and all the other creatures of the jungle got together and had a meeting to discuss how to free the jungle of the noise of Mr. Tar-tar’s music classes. Many plans were made and many ideas were given but they really couldn’t think of any good solution.
In the end it was decided that all the animals would sit-down below Mother Crow’s nest and not move till they either stopped the ‘caw caw’ of the crows and the ‘tar-tar’ of the frog or they would throw them out of the jungle.
And that is what happened. Mr. Tar-tar would not budge so Mother Crow as asked to leave the jungle along with her five children and Mr. Tar-tar. Mother Crow was also very stubborn. She did not like that anyone should interfere in the education and progress of her children. So she packed her bags and left to find a new place where she could start a new life, a place where no one could bully them and they were free to do what they wanted to do
Mother crow, her children and Mr. Tar-tar roamed here and there for a long time till they came to a town which was full of rats running here and there and troubling everyone. Rats of every kind had got together and were bothering everyone. Sometimes they would eat up the food, sometimes they would gnaw the clothes, and sometimes they would bite the little babies.
The people of the town were fed up. How does one get rid of these pesky rats, they just didn’t know what to do? That is why they announced a reward that whoever got the town rid of these rats would be given whatever they wanted.
Now, Mother Crow, did not wait even for a second, with her beak she killed three four rats, made them into patties and fed them to her children and Mr. Tar –Tar. After this there was no problem for Mother Crow and her team began to live happily in the town. Everyday they would kill a few rats and eat them up. After some time, Do-ray, Me-fa, So-la and Ti-do also became expert in killing rats and the rats were running here and there in fear for their lives. They were in a real state and they started talking about leaving town.
The people of the town were very happy. They did not want Mother Crow and her team to leave town ever so they began to give them many gifts.
Mother crow told them, “I don’t want anything but I want my children’s music to be remembered for ever and ever. So, can you make a tape of my children’s music so that I can play it for the animals of the jungle who had thrown us out of the jungle because of our singing class.”
The people of the town were only too happy to do as Mother Crow wanted and made a tape of the four crows’ songs. The name of the tape was, ‘The Caw – Caw Crows.’ When the tapes came to the shops the people of the town were very happy. When they played the tapes at home, not only the rats, but all the pests ran away frightened. Some farmers even started playing them in their fields so that the birds which eat their seeds flew away in fright.

Who is Melody? Melody is the heroine of my book; a little, black cuckoo who realizes one day that the purpose of her life was to sing. But how could she sing when Monsieur Tar-tar, the bull-frog who tutors her brothers, the four crows, Doray, MeFar, Sola and Tidoo thinks she has an awful voice. Even her single mom, Maggie Hatchery, pities Melody but she does want her to get her chance. And her chance comes when the falcon king, King Koo-tan – kha – Amen or King Koo-Toot, the King of Bird Land announces a world –wide singing contest in order to find a new court entertainer to replace the old one, Madame KuuKuuuu, who has being throwing too many tantrums. What no one knows, including the folks of Jungle-Land, is that Madame Kuukuuuu is Melody’s biological mother who had abandoned Melody in Maggie’s nest so that she could pursue her dreams of becoming a star. Melody, now trained by Senor Julio, the blind, reclusive thrush is a virtuoso songstress and trounces the competition in spite of the shenanigans of KuuKuuuu and replaces her as the new court entertainer. But can life in a golden age be happy? Melody now longs for the freedom of Jungle-land but she is under a contract. She becomes depressed and, one day, is truly cuckoo !
