Rabbit Vs Turtle


Everything was set. Only thing that the judges need is two players to be appeared in the ground without spoiling their time schedules. The game was fixed to be started exactly at 8.30 am in the morning. For any game morning is the best. They, the organizers thought. The ground support and the winning pillars are ready to welcome the winners. The ground support was full of cheers, claps, whistling and Hurrahs. This was not the first time that the players were ready for the game. The earlier records shown that the Rabbit lost and the slow walker the little lazy back I those days guy the turtle won. The time the player finished the game was not recorded, that is unfortunate, the beginners say sadly. The beginners always like to read the records of the earlier plays or the games for them that is a strength gaining activity apart from the exercises daily.  Their PT sir is not little but very strict. They are not allowed to miss any exercise sessions.   

The official sponsor of rabbit is ‘carrot’ and for Turtle he uses his personal money rejected all the applications came his way asking whether they can sponsor not because they knew that he won last game rabbit lost but just to support the ‘sports’ nothing else. They all love sports and sportsmen and sportswomen.

The ground supporters can easily view the huge flag holding stick proudly waiting to welcome and embrace the winner.

The flag is full of all colours.

The award of the colour unidentifiable has to meet the designer sooner not later to get a clear understanding of the colours chosen. The organizers decided.
The trophy both kissed and went away to their starting place of game.
Shake handed

Wished each other ‘all the best’

Everything happened as usual not strange to the earlier version watched supporters

The rabbit the runner the loser of last game looked little confident this occasion and positive

He did bit of warming up and looked at the ‘person who holds the gun upwards

Get set

Ready

Go

 The turtle looked at the Rabbit so calmly and quietly and he had a smile on his face the turtle was wondering I know what happened last time’ why should I worry

The rabbit vanished among the lines of running within moment but the turtle looked alright he took bit of time to reach to the place where the rabbit was so relaxing forgetting his winning desires.

But this time

Things have changed

The turtle did not see any rabbits relaxing at the previous place
He became little curious where has this rabbit gone

Again he took another few hours to reach the winning place

The turtle saw the rabbit was relaxing covering his face, from the cap given by his sponsorships

The rabbit has changed

The turtle thought with a smile

Good that he remembered what had happened during last game
He had to lose because of his lazyness and no planning of winning

Hey friend ……………………

I am happy that you won this time even last time I was not planning to win it was you who gave me the chance to win. The supports may have thought something else and recorded things the way they liked.

Congratulations my friend

I was not in the competition zone but in the comfortable zone everyone in the ground was cheering to you my friend they were planning to celebrate your winning moments they knew that I could not win because I am a slow walker last time I proved that the slow walkers too can win

This time too I won because I am happy to see that my friend has won the trophy.
Winning has different facets

The turtle spoke to the ground supporters his and of the rabbit competition is not always healthy

Completion may lead to losing not just the trophy but other things
There are ways to show others some may say ‘we support rabbit’ some other group may say ‘we support turtle’ entirely different team may say ‘we support no one but ‘ only self,  ‘we want something from your losing’ ‘ we want something from fighting to win groups we want something from the people who forget their houses and play on roads, we like only when you all fighting not walk hand in hand in peace

There are different groups

The winning desires of people are different to each other

So friends,

I am happy to see that the rabbit has learnt a lesson from last game and has decided to relax only after reaching the winning flag. That is a good sign of sports, good sports, non harmful sports, healthy sports.
The races are good only in grounds not in roads main or little, little lanes, high ways

The rabbit too got a little chance to address his supporters – ground

‘I miss understood my friend turtle

I never thought that he did not want to win’

I now realize that it was me who did not do my part properly gave him an insulting winning. The people thought because I had a sleep during the game he won. 

I should not underestimate the talents and skills of others tiny or teeny it is not only the tall and huge has the abilities to win ‘ everyone is got talents’ not only the America J ‘America’s got talent’ that we know have watched.
The Asians the Africans every one’s got talents. I am so glad and happy to know that the turtle had no defeating ideas against his friends he was supporting me by participating in the game.

Thank you for respecting the game

There are moments that people should run there are moments that they should not run but walk. There are moments that they have to do both at the same time during intervals of life.

Have a cheerful evening!
