English Short Story “The North Wind and The Sun” Complete Moral Story for Class 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 Kids and Students.

The North Wind and The Sun

The North Wind and the Sun had a quarrel about which of them was the stronger. While they were disputing with much heat and bluster, a Traveller passed along the road wrapped in a cloak.

“Let us agree,” said the Sun, “that he is the stronger who can strip that Traveller of his cloak.”

“Very well,” growled the North Wind and at once sent a cold, howling blast against the Traveller.

With the first gust of wind, the ends of the cloak whipped about the Traveller’s body. But he immediately wrapped it closely around him and the harder the Wind blew, the tighter he held it to him. The North Wind tore angrily at the cloak, but all his efforts were in vain.

Then Sun began to shine. At first, his beams were gentle and in the pleasant warmth after the bitter cold of the North Wind, the Traveller unfastened his cloak and let it hang loosely from his shoulders. The Sun’s rays grew warmer and warmer. The man took off his cap and mopped his brow. At last, he became so heated that he pulled off his cloak, and to escape the blazing sunshine, threw himself down in the welcome shade of a tree by the roadside.

Gentleness and kind persuasion win where force and bluster fail.
