The Vain Jackdaw & his Borrowed Feathers
One day, Zeus declared a order, he wanted to select the most beautiful bird as a king of birds. All of birds were busied to dress up themselves.
A Jackdaw wished he is the one which is selected.
Now the black Jackdaw was not a very handsome bird. Yet he imagined that all he needed to make himself fit for the society of the other birds was a dress like theirs. So he borrowed a feather from the Peacock and stuck them among his own black plumes. And so on, he continued to borrow kinds of feather from all of birds.
Dressed in his borrowed finery he strutted loftily among the birds of his own kind. On that day, all the birds dressed up and walked to Zeus. Zeus saw the colorful Jackdaw at a glance and immediately prepared to make him king. But birds soon saw who he was. Angry at the cheat, they flew at him, plucking away the borrowed feathers and also some of his own.
