Once there lived a crow who did not like his feathers. She always admired the colorful feathers of the peacock and wanted to be one among them.

“You all look so dull and plain. Look how beautiful the peacocks are. I so wish I were a peacock” she would say to her fellow crows.

One day, the crow saw many peacock feathers on the ground. Seeing those peacock feathers an idea struck. She gathered them and stuck them into her wings and tail and a few up from her head to look exactly like the peacock. 

“Now I am as gorgeous as a peacock,” she said to herself. And so, she went to join the flock of peacocks but was mocked and thrown out. The peacocks clearly understood that she was not one among them. “Putting on peacock feathers will not make you a peacock,” they said to her. Sad and humiliated, she returned back to her fellow crows. But, none of her fellow crows wanted her company after all her insults. To add insult to the injury, they noticed peacock feathers hanging out from her wings and tail and mocked her. Then an old wise crow came and told him “we should accept the way we are. Don’t try to copy others blindly. I hope you have learned your lesson”.
