The Crab and its Mother
One day a Crab and her son set out for a walk on the sand. A little distance away, Mother Crab noticed that her son was walking rather strangely to one side. “Why do you walk in this one-sided manner, my son. You must walk straight, moving yourself forward. Not twisted to one side.”
The little Crab tried to correct his walk but couldn’t get it at all. He turned to his mother, “If you show me the straight way mother, I am sure I could follow in it.”
Mother Crab tried to walk straight as she wanted her son to, but failed in her attempts. The Crab and its Mother then walked on towards the shore in silence.
