Unity is Strength

Once there was an old farmer. He lived with his wife and three sons in a small village. The three sons always quarreled with one another. The farmer often advised them not to quarrel. But they did not obey him. One day the farmer called his sons to bring some sticks and tie them in a bundle. Then he first gave the bundle to his eldest son to break it. He tried but could not break it. The three sons tried one after another. But none could break it. Then their father asked them to untie the bundle and told each of his sons to take one stick. Each of the sons took one stick. Then their father asked them to break the sticks. Now they could break them easily. Then the farmer advised his sons, “Like the sticks, if you remain together, nobody can harm you but if you are separate, anybody can harm you.”
