On a summer day, a grasshopper was sitting on the field singing songs. An ant was passing by carrying food grains to its home. Grasshopper stopped the ant and asked, “Come my friend and sing a song with me”.
But the ant refused and said, “I do not have time for this as I have to gather as much food possible for winter. You should also start gathering food.”
The grasshopper said, “There is plenty of food at present, we need not bother for it.”
But the ant continued with the hard work of gathering food.
As the winter arrived there was severe shortage of food and grasshopper found itself dying of hunger. On the other hand, it saw ants consuming food everyday from the stores of food grains collected during the summer.
Moral :- First secure your future then enjoy.
