Class 7 Sanskrit Chapter 11: समवायो हि दुर्जय: In this lesson, we will read about the power of unity i.e indomitable. Unity can never be defeated easily, hence unity is miserable. So, let us read this lesson and see what is happening in the story?
In the olden times, a bird lived on a tree. After a few days, the bird had eggs. Then, a group of elephants came under that tree and broke the branch of that tree and threw it. Because of which the bird’s nest fell to the ground and the bird’s eggs broke up.
Then the bird became very sad and started crying loudly. Listening to her crying, the other bird, whose name was WOODPECKER, came to her, and spoke sadly – Hello! Why are you crying? The bird explained that I had eggs on the branch of this tree and a great elephant came and he broke the tree’s twig.
Because of which my eggs split. He has killed my children. Now my grief will be removed from the killing of that elephant. The WOODPECKER bird heard all the things and after hearing, he took her to a flyer called Veenarva. Then both of them told the whole thing. Then the fly said, listen – I have my friend frog, whose name is Meghnad. If you go to him then he will only tell you what we should do next.
Then the three go to the Meghnad frog and tell the whole story. Meghnath speaks – as I speak, do you people like that. Meghnath first said to the fly – you hum in the ear of that elephant in the afternoon. Because of which he will remain closed by the eyes. Then the WOODPECKER will crack his eyes with his beak. And thus, the elephant will be blinded.
Then he will feel thirsty and he will go towards the lake for water. There is a huge pit in the way to the pond, I will stand near the same pit and I will bring out the sound of the tar-tar-tar (frog sound/croaking). Hearing the voice, the elephant will think that there is a pond. And he will think that pit will come towards the side of the pit, like a pond. Because of which he will fall into that huge pit and die.
And when this was done, the elephant fell into the pit and was killed.
Therefore, it is said that the organization of many weak beings can be won very hard. That is the power of unity. Unity is miserable, that is, difficult conquest can be found in unity.
