Introduction:
Well, I have read and heard many stories in childhood and I especially enjoyed listening to stories from my grandmother.

When it was? and Who told the story?
And here I would like to narrate my favourite childhood story of a farmer who taught his sons the lesson of unity. One day I was having a fierce fight with my brother and at that time our grandmother told us this story of a farmer.

What the story was?
There was a farmer having four sons who always used to quarrel with each other and the farmer was really worried about them. To teach them the importance of unity he brought few sticks and asked to break them into two. All sons immediately snapped the stick taking no time. Later the father gave a bunch of sticks to each of his to break and no one could break this time.

Then the farmer said dear sons if you will remain together no one can harm you else you will be like those broken sticks. Listening to the story we realized our mistake as sons of the farmer and felt sorry to our grandmother and promised we will never fight again.

And explain why you liked it so much?
I admitted listening to this story brought a huge change in our behaviour and developed our relationship. In fact, I have told this story later to my nephew and niece too.

Conclusion:
Overall, it is a story which is my favourite that I heard in my childhood.
