The Sun and the Wind

The Sun and the Wind had an argument as to who was stronger. They kept arguing with each other and couldn’t make a decision.

Meanwhile, a traveller was passing by. On seeing him, the Wind said, “The one who is able to make the traveller remove his coat is the winner.” The Wind decided to try first, and huffed and puffed and blew as hard as it could, but the traveller just drew his coat tightly around him and kept walking on. Finally, the Wind gave up and it was the turn of the Sun to show its might. The sun shone brightly. Gradually, it grew hotter and hotter and the heat was so unbearable that the traveller finally removed his coat.

The Sun proved his strength and was delighted at winning the argument.
