There was a clock kept on table. As soon as big needle of clock met the small needle, it said, “Hey, how are you small needle?”

Small needle replied, “I am tired of walking. I don’t even get to rest for moment. Now i am bored of walking in same circle. Even his dog is sleeping but we have no rest.”

Big needle replied, “You are right. Look at Ramu, he is also sleeping. He even entrusted us with the task of waking him up in the morning. Even after waking him up, we don’t get to rest. What’s use of such life?”

Then it said, “Why don’t we stop walking?”

Small needle agreed and then both needles stopped at their places silently.

When Ramu opened his eyes in morning, he was shocked to see sunlight. He quickly looked at clock, it was still two o’clock.

But there was no one to listen to them.

Thinking all this, both needles started working again. As they realized that it was better to do something than to do nothing.

Now, they were working in hope that maybe someone would hear, ticking of clock and take clock out of that box.
