Unity that emerged from a fire

Unity that emerged from a fire

by Jayaweera, Galle

Two different kinds of birds argue about their right to live in a forest. The birds who live in the forest are suspicious of the immigrant birds and say that they do not want them to settle there. The immigrant birds say that they have a right to live anywhere they want. They start fighting among themselves. While this conflict goes on, there is a fire and the whole forest is burnt down. The birds get together on one tree and realise how meaningless it was for them to fight and kill each other over the forest.
