The River thinks that the Mountain's life is more comfortable and peaceful than hers. Is it true? Watch and find out from our new Anibook "The River and the Mountain"One day, the river thought to herself, “Do I have to keep flowing all my life? Can’t I stop and rest for a while?” She needed advice so she called out to the mountain and shared her thoughts with him. The mountain just laughed and said: “Hey, look at me, I have been standing in the same place for ages!”The river replied, “You are firm and fixed in one place, how could you ever get tired? Look at me, I have to be on the move all the time. I don’t get to rest for even a single minute!”The mountain smiled. “That is how you see it, but I get tired of standing here,” he replied. “Every day I see the same trees and the same patch of sky. Sometimes I wish: if only I could run around like the river. I would visit new forests and villages. I would water their fields, give life, and be so deeply loved by all.”The river interrupted, “That’s strange! Your life is so comfortable and peaceful, yet you feel this way.” “You don’t get it, my sister. You are worshiped by everyone.” the mountain replied lovingly. “You flow for the sake of others. And that’s not all! After giving away so much, you offer whatever remains, to the sea.”On hearing this, the river bowed down to the mountain and said with great enthusiasm, "You are absolutely right, my brother. The true purpose of my life is to give life to others. Thank you for your kind wisdom!” she said. Then, while the mountain smiled at her newfound positive energy, she gushed away with a loud gurgle, feeling very happy.Story: Rewritten by BookBoxIllustrations: Kallol MajumderMusic: Arnab B.
