The Frog and the Ox

A big frog once lived in a small pond. Because he was the biggest creature in the pond, the frog decided he must also be the biggest thing in the world. As he sunned himself on his lily pad, he puffed out his chest with pride.

একদা একটি বড় ব্যাঙ একটি ছোট পুকুরে বাস করত। যেহেতু সে পুকুররের সবচেয়ে বড় প্রাণি ছিল, সে চিন্তা করল নিশ্চয়ই সে পৃথিবীর সবচেয়ে বড় জিনিস হবে। যখন সে তার শাপলা পাতায় রোদ পোহায়, তখন সে গর্বের সাথে তার বুক ফুলিয়ে তোলে।

“No one anywhere is bigger than I am,” he thought. One day a huge ox came to drink at the pond. The frog was amazed, but he refused to be impressed.

‘আমার চেয়ে বড় কোথাও কেউ নেই,’ সে ভাবল। একদিন একটি বিশাল ষাড় পুকুরে পানি পান করতে এল। ব্যাঙ অবাক হয়ে গেল, কিন্তু সে মুগ্ধ হতে অস্বীকার করল।

“I suppose you think you are big,” the frog called out to the ox. “But I want you to know that I can make myself just as big as you.”
ব্যাঙ ষাড়কে ডেকে বললো, ‘আমি মনে করি তুমি নিজেকে বড় মনে করো।’ ‘কিন্তু আমি চাই তুমি জান, যে আমি নিজেকে তোমার মতো বড় করতে পারি।’

The ox did not reply. He just kept on drinking.
ষাড় জবাব দিল না। সে শুধু পানি পান করতে থাকে।

“If you don’t believe me,” shouted the frog, “just watch!”
‘তুমি যদি আমাকে বিশ্বাস না কর,’ ব্যাঙ চিৎকার করে বলল, ‘শুধু দেখ!’

The frog took a deep breath and blew himself up to twice his usual size. But still, the ox paid no attention to him.ব্যাঙটি একটা গভীর শ্বাস নিল এবং নিজেকে তার স্বাভাবিক আকারের দ্বিগুণ করে করে তুলল। কিন্তু তবুও ষাড়টি তার দিকে মনোযোগ দেয়নি।

“So, that’s not big enough for you?” croaked the frog. Very well, I’ll make myself bigger still.” He blew himself up even larger.

‘তাহলে, এটা আপনার জন্য যথেষ্ট বড় নয়?’ ব্যাঙ ডেকে উঠল। ঠিক আছে, আমি নিজেকে আরও বড় করব।’ সে নিজেকে আরও বড় করে উড়িয়ে দিল।

Again the ox said nothing. He simply turned away and headed for the other side of the pond. He had had enough to drink. This made the frog furious. Taking an enormous breath, he blew…and blew…and blew himself up until he burst. And that was the end of the big frog in the small pond. So, nobody should try to be what you can’t be.

আবার ষাড় কিছু বলল না। সে সরে দাঁড়াল এবং পুকুরের অপর পারে চলে গেল। তার পর্যাপ্ত পানি পান করেছিল। এতে ব্যাঙ ক্ষিপ্ত হয়ে ওঠে। একটি প্রচ- নিঃশ্বাস নিয়ে, সে ফুঁক দিল…এবং উড়িয়ে দিল…এবং নিজেকে উড়িয়ে দিল যতক্ষণ না সে ফেটে যায়। আর তাতেই শেষ হয়ে গেল ছোট পুকুরের বড় ব্যাঙ। সুতরাং, যা হতে পারবে না তা হওয়ার চেষ্টা কারও উচিত নয়।
