Once upon a time, There was a King who was gone to visit neighboring kingdoms. He was gifted a pair of baby Macaw (parrots) by King of last kingdom he visited.
King loved the gift as they were the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. Upon returning the kingdom, King called for a bird trainer and asked him to take care of those parrots and train them.
King arranged a place for them in palace garden. He often looked at them from his palace window. Time passed, both Macaw’s grew to be big and beautiful parrots.
One day, trainer came to palace and informed King that though one of parrots was flying majestically high in sky, the other one was not moving from its branch since day it had arrived.
Upon hearing this, King summoned best trainer and healers from neighboring kingdoms. They all tried their best but couldn’t make parrot fly. King even asked his courtiers to try to find a way to make parrot fly but all failed.
Finally, King thought and asked his courtier to bring someone who is more familiar with natural habitat and take him to the parrot to see if he can understand what’s problem with parrot.
Courtier bought a farmer and took him to place where parrots were.
Next morning, King was thrilled to see parrot flying high above the palace. He asked his servant to call that farmer to meet him. Servant quickly went and asked farmer to come to King’s courtroom.
Farmer came and stood before King. King asked him, “How did you make the parrot fly?”
Farmer folded his hand with respect and said to King, “It was easy, very easy Your majesty. I simply cut the branch where bird was sitting.”
