The Ant and the Dove
On his way home, an ant saw a sparkling fountain. He crawled on to its wall to take a closer look.
Suddenly he slipped and fell into the water. He gurgled and panicked and waved his legs in the air. “Help! I can’t swim.” he cried. Luckily, just at that moment, a friendly dove flew by. She saw that the tiny ant was drowning and quickly flew to a nearby tree.
She pulled off a leaf and let it glide down to the ant. “Here you are,” she cooed, and flew away. (Adapted from Aesop’s Fables)

Flying Together Summary In English

A flock of wild geese lived in the leafy branches of a tall tree. One of the geese was a wise old bird. He became worried to see the small creeper that was growing at the foot of the tree. He told the other birds to destroy it otherwise it might cause problems for them. But the birds did not pay attention to his advice.

The creeper grew strong and thick in a due course. It began winding up the tree. One day, a hunter came and climbed up the tree with the help of the creeper. He got to the top and spread his net there to trap the geese. The geese were easily trapped. They began to cry to become free. The wise old bird came to their help. On his advice all the geese pretended to be dead. In the morning, the hunter came to the tree and climbed up. He saw all the geese lying still in the net. He took them to be dead and threw them out of the net one by one. When the last goose was thrown away, they all got up, flapped their wings and flew away.

Flying Together Summary In Hindi

जंगली हंसों का एक दल एक ऊँचे वृक्ष के पत्तेदार शाखाओं में रहता था। उनमें से एक हंस बूढ़ा और बुद्धिमान था। वह पेड़ के नीचे पनप (उग) रही एक छोटी-सी बेल को देखकर चिंतित हो गया। उसने अन्य पक्षियों से उसे उखाड़ फेंकने को कहा क्योंकि वह (बेल) उनके लिए समस्या खड़ी कर सकती है। लेकिन उन्होंने उसकी सलाह पर जरा भी ध्यान नहीं दिया। समय बीतने के साथ-साथ वह बेल काफी मजबूत और घनी हो गई। वह पेड़ को चारों तरफ से जकड़ लिया। एक दिन एक शिकारी आया और मजबूत बेल के सहारे पेड़ पर चढ़ गया। वहाँ उसने अपना जाल हंसों को फंसाने के लिए फैला दिया। हंस जाल में फंस गए और स्वतंत्र होने के लिए चीखने-चिल्लाने लगे। बूढ़ा बुद्धिमान पक्षी उनकी सहायता के लिए आगे आया। उसकी सलाह पर सभी हंसों ने मृत होने का झूठा दिखावा किया। सुबह होने पर शिकारी पेड़ के पास आया और उस पर चढ़ गया। उसने जाल के अंदर सभी हंसों को अचल लेटे हुए पाया। उसने उन्हें मृत घोषित कर दिया और एक-एक करके जाल में से बाहर फेंक दिया। जब अंतिम हंस फेंका गया तो सभी अपने पंख फड़फड़ाए उठ गए और उड़ गए।

Class 5 English Chapter 2 Flying Together Hindi Translation Of The Lesson

1. Deep in a forest stood a very tall tree. Its leafy branches spread out like strong arms.
This tree was the home of a flock of wild geese. They felt safe there. One of the geese was a wise old bird.
He noticed a small creeper at the foot of the tree. He spoke to the other birds about it.
“Do you see that creeper?” he said to them. “Let us destroy it”. “Why must we destroy it?” asked the geese in surprise. “It is so small. What harm can it do?”
“My friends,” replied the wise old bird, “that little creeper will soon grow. As it creeps up this tree, it will become thick and strong.”
“What of that?” asked the geese. “What harm can a creeper do us?”.
Word-Meanings-Spread out (स्प्रेड आउट)–फैला हुआ। Flock (फ्लॉक)–group, समूह, झुंड। Noticed (नोटिश्ड) saw, देखा। Creeper (क्रीपर)-a plant that grows along a tree, बेल, लता। Destroy (डेस्ट्रॉय)–break down, नष्ट कर देना। Replied (रिप्लाइड)-answered, जवाब दिया। ।
अनुवाद : घने जंगल में एक काफी ऊँचा पेड़ था। उसकी पत्तीदार शाखाएँ मजबूत बाजुओं की तरह फैली हुई थीं। इस पेड़ पर जंगली हंसों का एक झुंड रहता था। वहाँ वे सुरक्षित महसूस करते थे। उनमें से एक हंस बूढ़ा और बुद्धिमान था। उसने पेड़ के नीचे एक छोटी बेल को देखा। उसने उसके बारे में अन्य पक्षियों को बताया। “क्या तुम सब उस बेल को देख रहे हो?” उसने पक्षियों से कहा। “आओ हम उसे नष्ट कर दें।” “हमें उसे नष्ट क्यों करना चाहिए?” हंसों ने आश्चर्य से पूछा। “यह इतनी छोटी है। यह हमें क्या नुकसान पहुँचा सकती है?” “मेरे दोस्त,” बुद्धिमान बूढ़ा पक्षी बोला, वह छोटी बेल बहुत जल्दी बड़ी हो जाएगी। जैसे-जैसे वह पेड़ पर चढ़ेगी, वह घनी और मजबूत होती जाएगी।” “तो उससे क्या?” हंसों ने कहा। एक बेल हमारा क्या नुकसान कर सकती है?”

2. “Don’t you see?” replied the wise bird, “with the help of that creeper, it will be possible for someone to climb this tree. A hunter can come up and kill us all.”
“Well there’s no hurry,” they replied, “the creeper is very small. It would be a pity to destroy it now.”
“Destroy the creeper while it is still young,” the old bird advised. “Now it is tender and you can cut it easily. Later it will become hard and you will not be able to cut it.”
“We’ll see, we’ll see,” answered the birds. But they did not destroy the creeper.
Word-Meanings-Hurry (हरि)–जल्दी करना। Pity (पिटी)—a matter of sorrow, दुःखद। Advised (एडवाइस्ड) suggested, सलाह दिया। Tender (टेन्डर) soft, कोमल।
अनुवाद : “क्या तुम नहीं देखते” बुद्धिमान पक्षी ने जवाब दिया, “उस बेल के सहारे हो सकता है कि कोई इस पेड़ पर चढ़ जाए। कोई शिकारी ऊपर चढ़कर हमें जान से मार सकता है। “अच्छा, कोई जल्दी नहीं है, उन्होंने कहा, “बेल बहुत छोटी है। इसे अभी नष्ट करना दुःखद होगा।” “बेल जब बहुत छोटी है उसी समय उसे नष्ट कर दो।” बूढ़े पक्षी ने सलाह दी। “अभी यह कोमल है और तुम इसे आसानी से काट सकते हो। बाद में यह सख्त हो जाएगी और तब इसे काटना मुश्किल हो जाएगा।” “हम देख लेंगे, हम देख लेंगे,” पक्षियों ने जवाब दिया। लेकिन उन्होंने उस बेल को नष्ट नहीं किया।

3. They forgot the wise old bird’s advice. As the creeper grew, it began winding it’s way up the tree.
Stronger and stronger it became, until it was as strong as a thick rope.
One morning when the geese had gone out in search of food, a hunter came to the forest.
“So this is where the wild geese live,” he said to himself. “When they come back in the evening, I shall catch them.”
Word-Meanings-Winding up (वाइंडिंग उप )-wrapping closely around something, लपेटना। Rope (रोप) रस्सी।
अनुवाद : वे बुद्धिमान बूढ़े पक्षी की सलाह भूल गए। जैसे-जैसे बेल बड़ी होने लगी, वह पेड़ से लिपटकर ऊपर की ओर अपना रास्ता बनाती गई। वह मजबूत बनती गई और एक दिन मोटी रस्सी की भांति मजबूत बन गई। एक सुबह को जब हंस भोजन की तलाश में बाहर गए हुए थे, एक शिकारी उस जंगल में आया। “तो यहीं पर हंस रहते हैं,” उसने अपने आप से कहा। “जब वे शाम में लौटेंगे तो मैं उन्हें पकड़ लूंगा।”

4. The hunter climbed up the tree with the help of the creeper. He got to the top and spread his net there. Then he climbed down and went away In the evening, the geese returned home. They did not notice the net. As they flew into the tree, they were trapped. They struggled hard to get out, but could not.
“Help! Help!” cried the geese. “We are caught in the hunter’s net. Oh! What shall we do?”
Word-Meanings-Returned (रिटन्ड) came back, लौटे, वापस आए। Trapped (ट्रैप्ड)caught, फंस गए। Struggled (स्ट्रगल्ड) tried hard, संघर्ष किए। Get out (गेट आउट)—come out, बाहर आना।
अनुवाद : शिकारी बेल के सहारे पेड़ पर चढ़ गया। वह चोटी पर पहुँच गया और अपना जाल वहाँ फैला दिया। उसके बाद वह नीचे उतर गया और चला गया। शाम में हंस घर लौटे। उन्होंने जाल पर ध्यान नहीं दिया। जैसे ही वे पेड़ पर उड़े, फंस गए। जाल से बाहर आने के लिए उन्होंने बहुत संघर्ष किया, किन्तु बाहर आ नहीं सके। “बचाओ, बचाओ,” हंस चीख पड़े। हम सभी शिकारी के जाल में फंस गए हैं। ओह! अब हम क्या करें?”

5. “Don’t make a fuss now,” said the wise old bird. “Long ago I told you to destroy the creeper, but you did not. Now see what has happened. Tomorrow morning the hunter will come back and kill us all,”
“We were foolish,” wept the birds. “We are very sorry we did not listen to you. Please tell us what to do?”
“Then listen carefully,” replied the wise bird. “When the hunter comes you must all pretend to be dead. Just lie still. The hunter will not harm dead birds. He will throw us to the ground. It will then be easy for him to climb down, collect the dead birds, and take them home. When the last of us has been thrown down, we must quickly get up and fly away.”
Word-Meanings-Make a fuss (मेक अ फस)–बकवास करना। Pretend (प्रिटेन्ड) show falsely, झूठा दिखावा करना। Collect (कलेक्ट) gather, इकट्ठा करना।
अनुवाद : “अब बकवास मत करो,” बुद्धिमान बूढ़े पक्षी ने कहा। “बहुत पहले मैंने तुम लोगों से बेल नष्ट करने के लिए कहा था लेकिन तुमने उसे नष्ट नहीं किया। अब देखो क्या हो गया। कल सुबह शिकारी वापस आएगा और हम सभी को मार डालेगा।” “हम लोग मूर्ख थे,” पक्षी रो पड़े, हमें दुःख है कि हमने आपकी बात नहीं सुनी। कृपया हमें बताइए। कि हम क्या करें?” “तो ध्यान से सुनो,” बुद्धिमान पक्षी ने कहा। “जैसे ही शिकारी आए, तुम सभी मृत होने का दिखावा करना। बिल्कुल अचेत लेटे रहना। शिकारी मृत पक्षियों को नुकसान नहीं पहुँचाएगा। वह हमें नीचे धरती पर फेंक देगा। तब उसके लिए नीचे उतरना आसान, मृत पक्षियों को इकट्ठा करना और उन्हें घर ले जाना आसान हो जाएगा। जब हममें से अंतिम को नीचे फेंक दिया जाएगा, तब हम सभी जल्दी से उठेंगे और उड़ जाएंगे।

6. In the morning the hunter came to the tree and climed up. He looked at the geese in the net.
“They are all dead,” he muttered to himself. He threw them out of the net one by one. The birds lay still until the last one had been thrown down. Then, all at once, they got up, flapped their wings, and flew away.
The hunter was taken by surprise. From the top of the tree he watched all the geese fly away.
Word-Meanings-Muttered (मटंड)-spoke in low voice, बुदबुदाया। Flapped (फ्लैप्ड)—moved up and down with a sharp sound, फड़फड़ाया। Watched (वाच्ड)-saw, देखा।
अनुवाद : सुबह में शिकारी आया और पेड़ पर चढ़ा। उसने जाल में फंसे हँसों पर नजर डाली। “ये तो सभी मरे हुए हैं, वह बुदबुदाया। उसने एक एक करके उन्हें जाल में से बाहर फेंक दिया। पक्षी धरती पर तब तक मृत जैसे पड़े रहे जब तक कि अंतिम हंस को फेंक नहीं दिया गया। फिर, अचानक वे सभी उठ गए, अपने पंखों को फड़फड़ाया और उड़ गए। शिकारी हैरान रह गया। पेड़ की चोटी से उसने सभी हंसों को उड़ते हुए देखा।
