This story is about the finger fight. Once a thumb and the four fingers were fighting together and had an argument. Each finger was fighting that it was the most important finger in the hand. The thumb was saying, I am the most important one for eating, writing and holding anything. The Index finger was arguing that I am more important because I am needed in pointing out any thing. Now the middle finger shouted, I am the most important one because I am the longest one among all the fingers. So I am naturally the leader of the fingers. Now the ring finger replied I am the most important one because I am the symbol of romance and love. So I should be the leader of the fingers. I am decorated with a golden ring and I am very important during the marriage and family ceremonies. Now the little finger said at the end, no I am the smallest finger and I am the most beautiful finger. So I should be the owner of the hand and I should be the leader of the hand. Now the voice comes out from the owner of the hand. Each one of you is important to me. I cannot do anything without any one of you. No one is more important and no one is weaker. All the fingers are equally important to me. Everybody stopped fighting with each other and started living happily and in harmony with one another.
Moral of the story
Unity is strength. Each finger is important because each of the fingers have their own dedicated work which cannot be done by the other. Like we have seen in the story how all the fingers are equally important to make our day to day tasks done. Without any finger, nothing is possible. So we should give respect to each other’s work equally and should underestimate anybody’s work whether its small or big.
