It was a fine day during the rainy season. A peacock was dancing happily in a forest. Suddenly he reminded of his ugly rough voice. His face turned pale and his eyes started watering.

Suddenly he saw a nightingale sitting on a nearby tree and singing. Listening her, the peacock lamented "what a sweet voice she has, which everybody loves and praises but when I utter a sound everybody makes fun of me. How jinxed am I".

Just then appeared Juna- wife of Jupiter, the chief of gods. She asked the peacock "why are u said?" The peacock sobbed out " I have got such a beautiful body that is praised by all but my voice is so bad that everyone laughs at it. So this beauty is useless".

The goddess replied " you are the only one who is unhappy. Several creatures have been gifted by god with various gifts like- you the beauty, eagle the strength, nightingale the sweet voice, so on and so forth. So don't grumble over your weakness, accept the way it is and be happy".

Hence, one should not regret on what he/she doesn't have rather be satisfied with what one has.

The End..
