On this closing day of World Folk Tales & Fables week, I would like to share the Aesop Fable which I liked the most.
A calf asks his mother, “Mom! you are so big, and powerful compared to a dog, you can beat a dog in any fight. Then why are you still scared of him.” The cow replies, “Everything you say is true, but I forget that whenever I hear the sound of barking.”
A tiny tale based on this Fable is https://kushankstories.com/2019/11/30/courage/
