Two Travelers and the Plane Tree Story

One hot day, two travelers were walking along a road and decided to rest under a large tree. They enjoyed the cool shade and looked up at the tree’s branches. They realized it was a Plane Tree, a kind of tree that does not produce any fruit.

One of them complained, “What a useless tree this is! It only drops leaves on the ground and does nothing else.”

The Plane Tree heard this and spoke to them, “How ungrateful you are! You are lying in my shade and still you insult me! You should be thankful for the blessings you have, not complain about what you don’t have.”

The moral of the story is that we should appreciate the good things in our lives and not take them for granted.
