Hello, I am Parth. I am 6 years old.

My school did not open today because it is very hot in Delhi. I heard a new story from my grandfather. It is from Mahabharata.

One day Guru Dronacharya  was teaching Kauravas & Pandavas. He said,  “One should always be truthful”.

The next day everyone told Guru Dronacharya that they had learnt the lesson. But Yudhishtra said, “I am  trying to learn the lesson.”  

Yudhishtra gave the same answer the next day. Guru Dronacharya was puzzled and asked for the reason.  

Yudhishtra said, ” I have understood the meaning. Now I am trying to practice it. It is taking time.”

Guru Dronacharya was very happy. He told everyone, “True learning is to practice it.”  Yudhishtra always remained truthful.

I liked this story very much. Hope you like it too!
