Bundle of Sticks



A an old man had three Sons, who were always quarreling among themselves. He prohibited them not to quarrel each other but did the least good, so he thought in his mind for some very striking example which will make them to realize that,  this discord and quarrel would lead them to misfortune.
One day when they were quarreling and this discord turned to much more violent position than usual and this old man came and appeased them and asked one of them to bring him a bundle of sticks. After sometimes each son brought a bundle of sticks. He told them to try to break this bundle one by one. Then handing the bundle to each of his Sons in turn. But although each one tried his best, none was able to break.
The Father then untied  a bundle of sticks and gave one stick to one of his sons to break one by one. This they did very easily.
"My Sons," said the Father, "do you not see how certain it is that if you agree with each other and help each other, it will be impossible for your enemies to injure you? But if you are divided among yourselves, you will be no stronger than a single stick in that bundle."
In unity is strength.
