An Introduction to the Tiny Drops Makes a Mighty Ocean

The Adventures of a Little Drop tale about the little drops teaches kids to view their realistic environment as they do in their own homes - as something that they share with others. This earth requires the loving compassion and care of everyone on earth, including children. Each tale is delivered in a delightful fairy-tale figurative form and tells about the laws of nature and the atmosphere. So let us all read out the story of a drop of water.

The Story of a Drop of Water

There was a farmer named Rangan who lived in a small village. He was a hard worker. His land was very fertile and he had dug deep water well in the land. He made pipe arrangements to collect the rainwater in the well. He made piping to organise the water falling over the ceiling of the house to the well. For the piping work, he spent a little money.

He told the people to do something similar to save the rainwater. Worrying about the money, they did not react to his advice. Later in the summer, his town was hit by a drought. So, all the people in the village suffered from water scarcity. After a few days, the people in the village decided to ask their king for help.

The king welcomed them into his court. He asked, "People, I want to understand one thing first, did it shower during the monsoon season in your town?"

People replied, "Dear King, Yes, it showered heavily in the season!".

Then the king inquired "Why do you have the water shortage then? You must have water wells in your village, were they not filled? The village people answered, "Oh our mighty king, the wells have left dry once the Summer begins!"



The king asked, "Did you conserve the water in the well?". People answered that they have not stored rainwater till now. The king said to them, "The rainwater is our lifesaver. If you had saved rainwater in your wells today, your village would not have been depleted today. Now, realise the lack of water. Rangan, a farmer in your town, conserved sufficient rainwater in the well. He agreed to support you this summer. Do not forget to conserve the rain again!"

People realised the need to save rainwater and thanked the king and Rangan. From then, they started to save the rainwater and lived without water scarcity.

Moral: Little drops make the mighty ocean. Saving rainwater helps to avoid water scarcity.
