Both the trees grew at the same time. Both give class and seeds. The mango fruits are sweet whereas for neem they up bitter. As everyone is eating the sweet mango fruits, the mango tree got more pride and it stopped talking to the neem tree.

The mango tree said, “What happened coconut tree? Why are you irritated? We cannot decide who is great.”

Moral of the story – Who is great
We should not look down on others’ qualities. Each Person is great in his own place. But the role and the duty of one differ from the other.
Never judge a person without knowing the facts about him. What you see or hear may not be the quality and reality of that person. Some people may not have a decent look or lifestyle. They may look simple and not well educated. But they may have outstanding talents and skills, maybe an excellent singer, talented painter or expert in other fields. It is also possible that they are well educated but not getting a good job or might have lost their job. Everyone is unique. So, underestimate no one by his look. So, never think you are great and others are not great as you. You should learn to respect others and respect your parents.
